Life Update: I graduated, now what?

So, I finally graduated college.

Yup. It’s been a stressful five years but I did it. When I started college I knew exactly what I wanted to do and thought that because I was so passionate about it, it would be easier for me. Then I realized that what I wanted to do was difficult to get into and if I really wanted it, I had to step out of my comfort zone and fight for it. A lot of other personal things happened too and every semester became a little harder to complete. But I did it, I fucking did it.

Now that I have my degree, my main focus is finding a new job. The job hunt has not been easy because I need experience and a lot of companies don’t believe in paying their interns. Sorry, but I don’t have the luxury of working for free. The job I work at now has been utterly miserable and I look forward to the day when I can wake up and be happy about going to work.

In other news, Solo: A Star Wars Story is coming out very soon and I am very excited. I have a feeling we are all in for a couple of surprises and lots of laughs. Donald Glover recently hosted SNL and his sketch as Lando was hilarious! I highly recommend watching it because it actually covers some issues that are being discussed right now, like the lack of representation in Star Wars, both in front and behind the camera.

Check it out below:

Hopefully the next time I check in I will have gone to a couple of job interviews or have some new opportunities. I’m nervous about the future but I’m ready to fight for what I want!

  1. Congratulations on your graduation and best of luck in the job hunt! It’s an exciting and unnerving time to be sure. I wish you all the best.

    I’d like to share with you a quote a professor once offered a class I was in. It’s from the German poet Rainer Maria Rilke – his collection ‘Letters To A Young Poet.’ Rilke writes, “Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.” I think of this often, especially when I’m trying to figure out where life’s headed or what the next step will be. So enjoy the questions! Live them! And enjoy the future that comes from living them :).

    1. Thank you Michael, I really love the quote. I always find myself worrying about the future and forgetting to live in the now. It is definitely something I am trying to work on.

      1. I think it’s something we all have to work on. Worry never really solves anything (outside of giving us more anxiety) but it’s a pretty deeply ingrained habit. Dealing with it, trying to balance it, is just another one of those fun parts of being human I guess :).
