21 Reasons Graduating Is The Worst

It's all fun and games until adulthood hits you in the face.

Posted on

1. All you can think about during the ceremony is not making an ass of yourself on stage.

2. You're forced to say goodbye to most, if not all, of your friends.

3. Then you spend the next few hours packing all of the belongings you've amassed over four years into a number of vehicles or a too tiny moving van.

4. Onward home it is, squished between suitcases, lamps, brooms, and shoes.

5. There is no consideration at all of unpacking when you finally arrive home.

6. Sleeping in your own bed for the first time in months is one of the most foreign things you'll ever experience.

7. You wake up in the morning expecting to still be in your dorm room in your minuscule twin sized prison mattress bed.


8. Your parents couldn't be more accommodating and nice during your first few weeks home.

9. Until the inevitable happens.

10. You force yourself to stop binge-watching Netflix and stuffing your face full of junk food.


11. You pump yourself up into beginning the job search. It'll be the easiest thing you've ever done you tell yourself.


12. Or so you thought. Until you realize any entry-level job you qualify for requires 3-5 years of experience.

13. Then you find out just how much you owe in student loans.

14. You constantly see the amazing jobs all your friends have on Facebook and Instagram.

15. Meanwhile, you're still sitting at home trying not to give up hope that one day that'll be you.

16. And then you realize that after all those years waiting for graduation you'd do anything just to go back.
