1. Who Is Sallie Mae, And Why Does She Keep Calling Me?
Y'all….Sallie Mae does NOT play! *snaps in Z formation* She will be contacting you soon to collect the coins that you didn’t even have time to make yet! She will start with emails, and then like an annoying ex she will begin to call…and call...and call!! LOL take some time off to regroup after graduation; and then (in the words of queen Britney herself) “You need to work betch”. I have a friend who graduated 6 years ago, yet she still takes one college course a semester at a junior college to avoid paying Sallie! She is currently enrolled in an arts&crafts class! #literallyicannot *sips margarita*
a. Well…you've graduated, so now what? What do you do now? Do you find a job? Do you go back to school? Are you moving back home? Graduation Day is like a surprise that we all knew was coming, we just failed to completely prepare for! Like we all had a countdown for this day, we just never believed that it would REALLY happen. But it has happened…so now what? I laugh when people freak out about not having their entire lives planned out. Do you really think you’re going to jump into your first job and not hate it? Do you really think that you’re not meant to make mistakes and learn from them? Do you really think that turning that tassel to the left will flip the switch for your greatness! Noooo! *shakes head* Beyoncé was not made in one day! *snaps in Z formation* You’ve graduated, and that’s great! But you can’t expect your happy ever after right away! Take a break. Clear your thoughts. Find your passion. Then change the freaking world! *TWIRLS*
There is a big difference between a college student's broke and real life broke. College student broke is socially acceptable, real life broke is not. Now you’re a grown up. With a real life job. With real life bills. And real life debt. *Kanye Shrugs*
So I tried to check something out of the library the other day. And the school has kicked me out of the system. Like I hadn’t even graduated yet, and they were already done with me! *face palms! However, I’m never getting rid of my student id! *Kanye shrugs* Life…why would I ever do such a thing? I may not be a college student, but until world domination occurs I will live like a college students. So that means discounts on EVERYTHING!
Vitamin C’s Graduation song gets me EVERY TIME! You don’t realize that you’re going to miss the annoying people around you until it’s too late. Everyone is going in different directions, and trying to impact the world in their own ways! It finally hits you that your time with those around you is over! And you can say that you’re going to keep in touch, and that you’ll text and tweet…but it will never be the same. And it’s about time that you've accepted that. You were meant to be around those people, for that time, to learn those lessons. And now that time is up, so you need to meet new people, at a new time, and take in new lessons! Appreciate those around you, but be open to new adventures!
I almost threw away my diploma. Everyone told me that universities don’t put your real diploma in the case that they give you during graduation. So I was just slanging that thing around all day! And then at dinner one of my friends got bored and decided to open the container. And there it was, a $200,000 piece of paper…that I almost lost! *face palms into a sigh* you’ve spent hundreds of thousands of dollars, a countless amount of hours, and you’ve worked through blood, sweat, and tears to earn that diploma! So yes…it was an expensive piece of paper! But it was an expensive piece of paper that YOU earned!
Yaaassss! YOU DID THAT! You just earned a degree! *snaps and twirls for your world domination* School is not meant for everyone, and you've beat the odds! Can we just pause for a moment and bask in your greatness! Your family, friends, and professors are celebrating your achievement and it feels great! You are great!. Now go...BE GREAT!
