I graduated from George Washington University (go Colonials!) in May 2011 and am quickly realizing that there is not an instruction manual for post grad life. You can read about my post graduate odyssey at my blog The Preppy Post Grad, Gen Y Hub, Forever 20 Somethings, and University Ave. When I am not writing or working I enjoy spin classes and, when the weather is nice, I love biking and long walks in Central Park.
