Congratulations class of 2017! You’ve completed a rigorous task. You’ve acquired a societal norm that gets harder to attain with each passing day. From now on you’re apart of a special group of people. People who’ve completed some level of formal education. Whether you’re finishing High School, or higher level degrees, you should be proud of yourself for sticking to the plan day in and day out for large amount of time. Be merry, get drunk, and feast with friends. Enjoy this summer of infinite possibilities. Sleep in. Feel a slight wave of anxiety as you think about homework that you have to complete but then remember that you graduated, so you don’t have anymore homework! Try and stave off the impending feeling of dread that will threaten to steal your sunshine, also known as Sallie Mae. Don’t spend too much time wallowing in the waste land of student loan debt memes, however comforting they may be. Life is for the living, recent college grad, and although you studied abroad and did keg stands throughout your college career, there is so so so much more out there in the world for you to experience.
In fact, you may realize how little living you did while in school. Sure you had fun and meaningful experiences and no one is taking that away from you. But unless you’re heading straight into the next degree this upcoming fall, real life is waiting for you. Will you dive in? Now is the time to finally do what you’ve always wanted to do. Looking to leave? Book that flight, pack it up and go. Ready to get paid, create a plan that will keep the job offers rolling in this summer. Thinking about tying the knot? Go ahead! Want to finally have a child? Go for it! Time is moving faster than usual these days. Perhaps it’s because we’re living under a crazy administration, maybe it’s climate change, but the world as you know it is changing rapidly with each passing second. You’re no longer able to use “school” as the excuse for your lack of activity. It’s time to get in touch with yourself and figure out what you’re really about and what you really want to do with your precious time. Because you have even less of it to waste now.
