So you’ve graduated from college?

Yay you! It’s time to get a job, working 50/60 hours weeks at a rate that is slightly above minimum wage, at a job that is not even related to your degree, where you’re disrespected and completely under valued. Even though you kill yourself at this dead end job, you are just to barely able to pay your everyday bills. 5/6 months post graduation, your student loan payments are rolling in…unable to make a payment OH WELL. Now you need to get a part time job, just to make ends meet or you can  defer your loan payments (that interest though will continue to accrue, so that’s a bad idea). You’re so tired working two jobs that you can barely function, sleep you say, What is sleep? Sleep is for those who have the luxury of time and money, you can’t afford to sleep you have to keep going everyday.  One year post graduation now you have a better hold on things, you’ve finally have a work life balance, you’re starting to think to yourself maybe “I should go back to school, maybe a masters degree wouldn’t be such a bad idea.” Before you can be accepted into your program you have to take an entrance exam. So you ask your full time job for a part time schedule for a month or 2 but instead you’ve been fired, because there are 20 more fresh out of college students lined up to take your job, So now what?  Now; you have student loans, bills, life and a part time job. Does anyone care? Does anyone believe the amount of work you’ve put in? Nope! No one cares, you are now on a sinking ship, go ahead ask for help…no one came? oh well. Congratulations at least you have a college degree.
