While graduating college still does suck, there are some good things that can come from entering the real world.  Because although life will never quite be the same as it was in college, there will be a few things you actually won’t miss.  In fact, there are things that you will be downright thrilled to not have to deal with anymore.  Here are just a few examples, and my personal favorites, for you to look over and think about:

1.  You don’t have homework, papers, or studying to worry about.

2.  No need to feel any guilt over procrastinating.

3.  No more registering for classes and not getting into the important ones.

4.  Hopefully, you will never have to sleep in a bunked or lofted bed again.

5.  You can finally delete all those annoying people from Facebook without fear of running into them on campus after.

See, those 5 things sure do sound pretty damn appealing.  So in the words of Dr. Suess, don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened. (Although, crying is totally understandable and normal). But once you’re done doing whatcha gotta do, go watch some silly teen drama on Netflix because school is out and what else do you have to do?!


Rachel Woolslayer graduated in June 2012 from UC San Diego with a degree in Communications and a minor in Business. After spending a year working as the Marketing Assistant for a trivia company in San Diego, she decided it would be a great idea to quit her job and move to Austin, Texas with her best friend from college. While she will always be a California girl, she has enjoyed embracing the Texas lifestyle, y'all...well, minus the ridiculous heat, and the bugs. Aside from that, she has a wanderlust that won’t quit and is constantly planning her next adventure. In her free time, she enjoys pretending to be friends with her favorite celebrities, getting too emotionally involved in her TV shows, and knowing way too much pop culture. Feel free to see if she has remembered to tweet recently at @Rauncheezy.
