Post-Graduation Plans

2011 March 25
by Stanley Quan

For the first time in my life, I don’t know what I’m going to do next fall.

With college graduation coming up in less than two months, I’ve fielded my fair share of the question, “What are your plans after graduating?” It’s definitely a legitimate question, but one that’s been difficult to answer, mostly because I currently don’t have anything lined up.

But I’ve been on the job hunt and am optimistic that I’ll be able to find something soon.¬†Graduate school isn’t in the works right now, but hopefully will be several years down the line.

I’m certainly excited to finally be completing college and get out into the “real world.” But, not gonna lie, it’s a little scary to think of life without the constant of school.¬†I guess I won’t be spending a good amount of my time in the classroom anymore.

I’m sure it’ll be great though, with plenty more moments to continue to live and learn.

    I always find it strange that people say the college years are the best years of our lives, because honestly, that’s depressing. I mean, it’s all downhill from there? I can’t accept that. These years have been fun, but each stage of your life will be the best part of your life in a different way. So cherish your memories from the last four years, but look forward to making new ones and learning new things. Change is certainly scary, but focus on how new experiences will help you grow as a person.

    And for what it’s worth, I think you’ll find a job soon too. Be warned job hunting takes persistence, even for those with the most qualifications, but I think you’ve got plenty of both. Good luck! :)

      Yeah, I don’t like the whole “these are the best years of our lives” thing either. It’s tough to live with that thinking…

      Thanks for the encouragement :)
