Like many people my age, I graduated college this past May (cue the round of applause and party horns). I knew the "real world" was going to be tough, and I'm just out here trying to find my dream job right out of college (delusional? Maybe). I realize my dreams are as big as the cookie I ate yesterday, but I refuse to give into "the man" (I still don't know what that means) and settle for a job that just pays the bills. ENDLESS BILLS. Well over the past few months of attempting to reach my goals, I've come across a few obstacles. I KNOW I'm not the only one that has gone through these “in-your-face” life lessons, so let me enlighten you.
