The 5 Stages Of Realizing That You're Done With College

We all get there eventually...

Posted on

Stage 1: Denial

Are you sure I'm done with college? Like, did I miss any GenEd requirements because I'll totally go back and do them because there is no way that I'm done with college. Are you sure I'm not still a freshman because I can't be finished already; it went by too fast and I'm not sure that I'm actually done. Wait, just talk to my advisor and they'll tell you that I'm not done. No I swear they'll say I'm not done yet!

Stage 2: Anger

I'M NOT DONE! I PAY THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS TO GO HERE AND YOU CAN'T TELL ME THAT I'M DONE! WELL I DON'T CARE IF I HAVE TO MOVE OUT BECAUSE I'M NOT DONE SO STOP SAYING THAT! NO I DON'T WANT THAT DIPLOMA BECAUSE I'M NOT DONE WITH COLLEGE!

Stage 3: Bargaining

Look….What can I do for you so that I don't have to be an adult yet? I'll do anything, so long as I can stay here forever. No, you don't have to send me away yet! I can be so helpful around here, please I'll do anything just let me stay a little while longer...

Stage 4: Depression

Oh no, I'm not ready for this. I'm not going to be able to find a job, so why shouldn't I be allowed to stay another year or three? What's the point in even trying for a job? No one is going to want me…I can't do it so why even bother?

Stage 5: Acceptance

Okay, you can do this. You didn't spend four years studying your butt off just to fall apart the second you have to be a real adult. You've lasted through four years of intense partying and you can make it through the next few months of trying to find a job and being a real adult. You've got this, college is done but you aren't. Now go out there and show them what you're made of!!
