7 Post-Grad Movies for Your New Post-Grad Life

So you just graduated from college! Congratulations! You have a degree!

But now what? After we leave the comfort of a campus that we’ve known for four years, where do we go? What do we do? It’s such a strange place to be in life–22 and  lost. The next obvious step is to get into the “real world” and start looking for a job and starting your first career. Some other people decide to take some time off and travel. Some move back home and relax for a hot minute. And some decide to completely avoid reality and do a little thing called grad-school. All of these are wonderful options and as long as your post-grad self is happy, that’s all that matters!

If you’re hyperventilating while reading this because you’re a post-grad who feels overwhelmed by possibility or the pressures to get to a “real job”, never fear! I’m here to help take your mind off of things for a while and let you in on the lives of some fictional characters in the same place you are (but more miserable and dramatic). So check out these seven great films that focus on the post-grad life and take comfort in knowing that these people have it way worse. Happy watching!
