Stressed Out? Reasons You Should Have Chilled in College
We freaked out, lost sleep and even cried because we were so stressed out in college – only to find out none of it was worth our tears. Here is why we should have chilled.
Yeah, getting a degree matters, but major don’t. Only 27 percent of college grads end up in jobs related to their major. If only you knew that before.
Flying the Coop
You threw fits to live in a swanky apartment like all the cool kids and not at home. Looking back, you wish you had saved on rent by living with the parentals.
Grades are important, but so is being well-rounded. Thank god for that summer volunteer program that showed your employers you had experience.
Hit the Snooze Button
An early registration date seemed crucial for getting into the classes you needed. Why did you panic? Someone ALWAYS dropped and you were able to swoop in.
Not that studying isn’t important, but pulling all-nighters before an exam was never worth it. Being blurry-eyed and jittery were not helpful.
Not Having a Perfect 4.0
A GPA is something to brag about or hide from parents…but no one has cared post-graduation.
THE Life Plan
Five, 10 and 15-year life plans are exhausting to create and maintain. Being flexible in the real world is much more zen.
Some people have jobs out college. Good for them. Reality is, about 83% of grads don’t…for now.
