20 Reasons I Wish I Were Back At School

What happened to the days of water wings, Disney-shaped iced pops and smeary sunscreen? Now that was real relaxation! I'm having trouble calling this a summer "vacation" when every day requires I get out of bed earlier than I did for classes!

This Post Grad Life: Summers Are Still, Like, Cool

My maturity grew ten sizes this weekend. Not that I had been acting like a complete idiot since I've graduated, but this is definitely the first full weekend with my maturity pants on, zipped and buttoned. Not to mention, summer really seems to be kicking its mighty heels in my face, and this combined with full-fledged maturity is something I'm not used to.

Welcome to the Real World: The Post-Grad Internship

If I were to say “post-grad internship,” would you shudder in disgust or tackle me with five different copies of your resume and a cover letter proofread by Katie Couric?

This Post-Grad Life: I Want My College Routine Back

Through a lot of self-evaulation these past few months, I've decided a lot of things (like hookin' up) post college are not too diverse from life as a monkey college student. Basically, I'm still a hot mess that is trying to figure out who I am and what I'm meant to do on this planet (blah, blah, blah).

This Post-Grad Life: Grown-Up Sleepovers

When I graduated from college, I told myself that I was never going to behave the way I had for the past four years. Especially since I was no longer going to be attending Thirsty Thursdays, Wasted Wednesdays and Tipsy Tuesdays, and there weren't horny boys lurking around every corner. Essentially, 'hooking up,' in all of its glory, was taking a gracious bow out of my life.

Welcome to the Real World: The Real Girl's Guide to Finding a Job

You’ve doubtlessly heard it by now. From parents, from professors, from older friends and siblings who’ve “been there.” It’s a sobering phrase that likely enters your mind right after you envision a post-grad summer of margaritas and beach hair. Not so fast with those grand plans, girlfriend. As everyone knows, looking for a job is a full-time job.

This Post-Grad Life: T. Swift Was Right About 'Speak Now'

Lately, I can't count all the times I've bitten my tongue in a situation. When I was younger and I liked someone, I would blurt it to their face at Sunday school and we'd be dating the next day. Nowadays, I can't seem to tell anyone how I feel until the very last minute, or when it's too late. I recently ended up hurting someone because I couldn't grow the balls to tell them how I truly felt. How did I let it come to that?

10 Things Less Flattering Than a Graduation Gown

True Story: No matter how bangin' your bod or how figure-friendly your outfit, there's nothing flattering about a graduation gown. But when you're standing outside as your grandparents snap 1,637 pictures of you lookin' round and squat in that rayon muumuu, you can at least take solace in the fact that you're not wearing this:

The Silver Lining Around This Recession/Depression Cloud

According to The Huffington Post, in a survey conducted only 44% of those interviewed believed that they would surpass the lifestyle they grew up with. And as one of those soon-to-be post grads, let me say that I understand this lack of optimism completely. The economy is still recovering. The job market is terrible. And companies are downsizing instead of hiring.

This Post Grad Life: Taking Responsibility Like a Big Girl

I've finally discovered that responsibility is more than just having it. While I should be responsible, I need to learn to step forward and take responsibility for things I do.

The 12 Best Commencement Speakers of 2011

So there's a lot of things that come to my mind when I think about graduation. There's the week of senior festivities that takes place before, and the long, relaxing summer that takes place after. There's caps and gowns and diplomas and awards and speeches. Lots of speeches.

This Post-Grad Life: It's All One Giant Balancing Act

Lately, I'll be honest, I've been finding it excruciatingly difficult to balance my personal life and spread myself evenly across everything I feel I need to do. I understand I can't be good at everything (I learned that when I auditioned for choir....), but when it comes to balancing what's important in my post-grad life, do I have to have to pick only one of the five things I want to excel in?

This Post Grad Life: Mistakes Are the New Black

Lately I've been behaving in weird, mysterious and dumb ways. I've partied on the occasional weekday. I went running back to a guy that didn't deserve even the time it takes to bat an eyelash in his direction. I stopped working out because I thought eating less would make me happier.

This Post Grad Life: Great Expectations Lead to Great Disappointment

Since graduating college, my personal expectations have turned backwards. That's right - as a post-grad, I expect too much out of every beginning. I squeeze the shiz out of the orange before I can have a taste. It's awful. I used to gain expectations through experience and now I have a ton of expectations before the experience. Result: I'm always disappointed.
