Life after college: The transition from college to postgrad life

I'm excited to share a new blog series! Over the next five weeks, I'll be talking about the ins and outs of life after college. New jobs, new living spaces, new relationships, new routines- handling all these changes can be overwhelming- even if the transitions are good. If there's anything in particular you'd like to see, let me know in the comments.

The playing field is pretty level in college- everyone is taking classes and working toward the same goal- earning that degree! Things change after graduation when people start to have different goals. 

The important thing is to stay out of comparison. Take some time this summer and consider what you actually want out of life. Are you applying to law school because you want to, or because you think you should? Do you want to get married because everyone else is, or because you and your partner actually want to do that? It's okay to do things at your own pace- in fact, it's more than okay. Focus on your goals and stay the course.

Stay in the moment and focus on yourself- as challenging as that can be. People around you are doing all sorts of things- traveling the world, starting new jobs, beginning grad school, getting engaged and starting families. It's easy to compare yourself and your life to everyone else's- especially with social media. But, remember there's no one right way to handle life after college.
