With graduation season well underway, the time has come to think about what to do with the rest of your adult life – and the fear of reality has never been so real.
Being a graduate is scary. For years, your parents, friends, and distant relatives have been asking the age-old question: “What are you going to do when you graduate?” Needless to say, you were probably too busy drinking the finest Tesco Value vodka, sleeping til noon, and surviving on a diet of pasta and noodles to even give this a second thought.
But, now that graduation is just around the corner, and you have more to worry about than what you’re going to wear on the day, the time has come to think about what to do with the rest of your adult life. The fear of reality has never been so real.
Moving out is tough. The likelihood is that you’re dreaming of the bright lights of London; sipping cocktails after a busy day at work in the City. However, the reality is that your graduate job will only pay you enough to rent a tiny, run-down studio flat – and you’ll have to hand over three quarters of your salary each month for the pleasure. Oh, and most cocktails cost well over a tenner. Still sound appealing?
