What It Feels Like To Be A Graduating College Senior As Told By Gob Bluth

What It Feels Like To Be A Graduating College Senior As Told By Gob Bluth

Graduating seniors are pitiful creatures. They've reached the end, but most have acquired "senior-itis" by now. It's an incurable disease. Only way for it to end is upon graduation. Seniors are top-dogs on campus, but underneath, lies a whole other realm of feelings for them. Read on and enter the exciting (and petrifying) world of graduating college seniors.

1. You finally realize you have to get a job.

You've been so consumed with school assignments and extra-curricular activities, you've forgotten to do the most important thing: find a job.

2. You understand the other seniors in your major are now your competition.

No longer are they "just" your friends anymore. The people also in your major are going out into the world to take your jobs. Let the games begin.

3. You start to wonder how on earth you even made it this far in school.

Just like Gob here, you may have just realized you might have been a little too believable as the "A" student, and now you have no idea what you're doing. Fake it until you make it!

4. You have a new appreciation for your friends you may never see again.

Not everyone at your college is from your hometown. Once you graduate, it's very likely you won't see them ever again. Take this opportunity to give them those awkward hugs you know they'll miss.

5. You no longer have any motivation to go to class.

Can I get an amen? Going to class, at this point, is like stepping on hot coals all the way to class when you really could have been in your bed. Lord, help us all.

6. "I would love to go to the movies!"

Yeah. Either graduating seniors are scrounging to save up for an apartment or they're just plain broke. Have mercy on these souls; they're trying their best to be adults.

7. You grasp the consequences of your procrastination with school assignments.

Senior project is due in one week? Gob said it best, "I've made a huge mistake." You're screwed unless you refer back to number 3. Fake it until you make it, even if it's until the day of your graduation.

But, you've made it my friends. You're so closer to the end than you think. Dream impossible dreams. Be what you want to be, even if that is a below-average magician like Gob Bluth. He owns it. You should, too.

clock indicates that it is free time

While the idea of free time without a stressful job or an abundance of schoolwork looming over your head may sound like a dream, it can be a nightmare at times. Having a couple of days to decompress is needed for a healthy mind and body. But when too many days go by, it can cause a downward spiral of thoughts and feelings.

As a recent jobless graduate, I was ecstatic to be free from responsibility and take a break from my normal life. That was until I realized just how responsible I had been and needed to be to continue being self-sustained. I learned a few things in this month of unemployment that encouraged me to find a job as soon as possible.

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

First Snow

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?
