Then it turns out nobody cares that you studied abroad or got published that one time or whatever.

Sux bro. Sorry.

You're forced to move home.

Ugh, moms always gotta harsh your mellow.

You realize pretty quickly you have no idea what you're doing.

Like who ACTUALLY knows how to use Excel!? Doesn't everyone just say that!?

But something you're doing seems to be working.
