Gearing Up for Graduation-Reality Starts Now

I’m not actually about to graduate, but I will be next spring.  That’s only a year away.  It’s a scary thought but I’m also excited to experience what the “real world” will be like.

This summer I am getting my first internship and doing it out of state.  I am excited and think it’ll help me see what it is like being out of my comfort zone and doing something in a professional manner and being slightly on my own.  I expect this summer to be like what will happen once I graduate.

With only a year left of my undergrad I need to start looking at what I am going to do after.  Of course get a job and move somewhere new.  But what am I going to do?  Where am I going to work?  Or even what internships will I even have during my last school year?

These are things I have to start considering.  Start preparing for bills and emergencies.  Prepare myself for working everyday on a schedule.  I don’t think it will be too terrible at first.  I won’t really have much or need much.  Plus right now I work all weekend and go to school every day taking 5 classes.

It’s a scary thought to think that my adult life will be beginning so soon.  But I’m excited to see what opportunities I can take and really what all is out there.  It’s not about getting everything you want right away.  I think it’s most important that I enjoy whatever it is that I am going to do.
