Because nothing says "adult" quite like trying to make it on your own.

1. Job searching

Nothing hurts your ego quite like sending your resume to 100+ job postings and hearing nothing back.

2. Moving back home with the parents

Sure, saving rent is definitely a plus! But nothing says "college is over" like being the only one awake in the house at 11pm.

3. No new friends.

Unless you count your Mom's Bunco group…

4. Wanderlust

All you want to do is travel and become worldly but that empty bank account puts a damper on things.

5. Too much free time.

Wake up, job search, eat lunch, job search, eat dinner, job search, sleep and repeat.

6. Watching your friends move on to bigger and better things

"Oh, you got hired? That's awesome!" *cries internally*

7. The never-ending inquiries about your future

"So what are your plans now that you've graduated?"

Oh, I don't know, stare out into the giant abyss that is unemployment?

8. The abrupt end to "summer vacation"

Nothing is worse than seeing your Instagram filled with sunsets and bonfires on the beach while you're in your PJs at home because you have to be up for work at 5am the next morning.

9. Financially becoming a "true adult"

Awesome, I just got my paycheck! Too bad half goes to rent while the other half goes to paying off student loans…

10. Packing up and moving
