My transition from college to the real-world has been relatively smooth. But there are some days (particularly the gorgeous, blue-skied, sunshiny, summer days) where I just can’t admit that I’m no longer a college student.
One of the hardest things? Not going out on weeknights.
College Allie: Wednesday means Flip Night at Faegans, pregame here head down around 11? Thursday? It’s the weekend let’s go celebrate!!!! Friday we’ll sleep in so we can do it all over again.
Real World Allie: Wednesday means the work week is ALMOST over. I’ll celebrate with a glass or two of wine. Thursday? It should be the weekend, but it’s not. I probably should just stay in but I really want to go out! okay, I’ll just go out and only have a couple beers. We need to go out around 8 though so I can be home in time to get enough sleep. Oops, that failed. Guess I’ll just be really tired at work tomorrow and feel like crap.
Real World Allie sucks. College Allie got to have way more fun. Now I know people would say I can still go out on weeknights and just limit myself to a couple of drinks, but that’s just no fun when you’re 22!!!This limbo time of no longer being a college student and becoming a professional employee sucks. Why couldn’t College Allie stick around a while longer?…
But I guess Real World Allie does have a little more money.. and doesn’t have to do homework on the weekends…
How are you dealing post-grad pre-profesh?
