Birthday Faves: 21 Things I Learned in My 21st Year

Just last February, I was planning my 21st birthday party. Now, I’m facing 22 (or as I like to call it 21+1) straight on. Even though the last twelve months have gone by, it feels like just yesterday I was indulging in jello shots and margaritas. For my 21st. Because just yesterday I was indulging in jello shots and margaritas.

The Post-Grad Journey: It’s Time for the LSAT!

Some people train for marathons – spending every day building their endurance, improving their time, and practicing so they will be able to cross the finish line. I’ve been spending the last five months doing all of the above, but I’m definitely not running a marathon anytime soon. Instead, I’m taking the LSAT … this coming Saturday.

The Post-Grad Journey: Can We Get Our Own Reality Show?

Everyone has a story. And while my post-grad journey has so far revolved around moving to California, interning, working odd jobs here and there, and studying for the LSAT to attend law school next year, I know that my story isn’t a typical after-college route.

The Post-Grad Journey: The Ultimate Six-Months-Out Survival Guide

Although the last six months have gone by incredibly fast, I have learned a lot when it comes to adjusting to life outside of college.

The Post-Grad Journey: The Stability Shuffle

Post-grad life is a lot about taking two steps forward only to take a step back. Some days, you feel like you’re ahead of whatever curve you’ve set for yourself and then other days, you feel like you’re falling behind.

The Post-Grad Journey: Untimely Updates

Graduation feels like it was yesterday so I couldn’t believe my eyes when I received an e-mail from my alma mater’s class reporter. For the first time, the class reporter wasn’t requesting class donations. Instead, she was asking for the class of 2010’s first official alumnae updates for the next alumnae magazine!

The Post-Grad Journey: Something’s Missing

I was one of those kids that never really got homesick when I was in college. While my friends would have occasional breakdowns and cry about not being with their families or their hometown friends, I never spent too much time dwelling on what I could have been missing at home – I was too busy doing everything else.

The Post-Grad Journey: The Hollywood Manual

Life obviously does not come with an instruction manual, and I’ll be the first to admit – sometimes I wish it did. When I went off to college, I knew it would take awhile to learn the ins-and-outs of living on campus, actively learning, and partying like a rock star, but it didn’t take me long to learn how to be what I like to call a “professional college student,” fulfilling all the duties and stereotypes known to man. It was easy. Post-grad though, well, it’s just a little more complicated.
