I’ve written before about my fear of graduating from college, but I could never have imagined just how many emotions I would be feeling! You spend so much time in school and then it’s over just like that! I didn’t know what to think or what to do with myself. However, it’s been a little over a month since I graduated and my feelings have improved. Here are some of the feelings I’ve had.

1. Anxiety

Yup. The anxiety is still here, but it’s definitely not as bad. I’ve slowly been able to calm myself down by reminding myself that it’s only been a month since I’ve graduated and it’s okay to not have a job right now. It’s hard to not get overwhelmed sometimes, but I try my best to always stay positive.

2. Excitement

I’m excited for what’s to come. I’m crystal clear on what I want for my career, so I’m excited to start my professional journey and grow. I’m also trying to take advantage of my last few weeks of no responsibilities. I’m definitely going to miss winter and summer breaks!

3. Gratefulness

I’ve been reflecting on my college experiences, the good times and the bad, and I’m grateful for them. I was able to grow personally and professionally and I learned so much.

It's definitely going to take some time for me to get used to this and maybe it'll be easier once I have a job. I guess I'll have to wait and see Have any of you recently graduated? Let me know how you’re feeling?
