Entering the “real world” after college can be extremely overwhelming. Chelsea Briche offers her advice for these individuals in her blog, The Millenial Miss.
Today, Chelsea shares the reality of 5 common expectations that many college grads face.
expectation: in the same city, in the same apartment
reality: all in different cities and feels like there is no longer time for each other
- First Job
expectation: every company is eagerly awaiting for you outside the campus barriers
reality: lots of struggle / competing for a single job
- Away From Parents
expectation: finally free! no one to nag at you
reality: you miss them badly and would do just about anything in the world to have your mom do your laundry just one more time
expectation: since you are now making your own income you can splurge on multiple ‘treat yourself’ moments
reality: bills, bills, bills and more bills.
- Living Situation
expectation: my apartment is going to be so chic
reality: live in a shoe box
