I am officially graduated from college! I finished my last two courses on August 15th. It took me 4 years and one term to complete college. I think I had an okay experience. I never lived in the dorms. I moved into an apartment a month after graduating from high school. My boyfriend moved in with me as well. I didn’t join a sorority and I didn’t go to a lot of parties. I got a job a month before starting college and kept the same job throughout. I did start to struggle between work and school around my sophomore year and my grades started to decline. I decided to work fewer hours and to only work Friday-Sunday. This helped me manage my school work a lot better, but in turn, I had no social life on the weekends. I didn’t mind that much.
I do think I learned so much and am so grateful that I was able to go and get a degree in something that I am passionate about which is journalism. Right now I don’t have much experience at all and I have no job lined up. I feel very stressed because I don’t want to be in retail anymore. I have worked retail for the last four years and it has taught me a lot and I have grown from the experience, but I think it is time to try something else. I just don’t know what that something is. My boyfriend and I are moving back to the town we came from to be closer to our families but there are not many job opportunities there for my field. I hope I will be able to do some freelancing to get started and hope that it brings in more options for work.
I guess this post is just a journal entry about my life at the moment and how I am feeling.
Thank you for reading,
