Everything that they say will happen to you when you’re a second semester senior, does. Reality sets in and it sets in hard.
In a few months, myself, amongst millions of other graduates, will have to make some of the biggest decisions of our lives… where to live? what career path to take? which job? There most definitely is uncertainty staring at me and all the other grads in the face. What we have to do.... is embrace it.
After becoming undoubtedly overwhelmed at the thought of post-grad life, I had to sit and really think it over. With the help of someone close to me, I was able to take a step back and visualize the path that I need to set for myself for these next four months. What he helped me to realize, is that if I want to be happy with a career choice, I need to step outside of my comfort zone.
In order to do this, I’m setting myself one of the most important goals this semester: pursue my passions. If I do that, I know that no matter what I choose to do, I’ll be happy.
