We're graduating.
But just because we're getting a little piece of paper that said we did it doesn't mean we are even close. We just finished the easy part of our life and everyone is saying "Congratulations!" and "You're finally done!" but that's not true.
They should be saying "I'm sorry." Because we're about to step into a world full of pain and despair. We'll go from 800 friends down to about 2 in a few short months. We're walking into a world of hot pockets for lunch every day and waking up each morning wondering how we will pay for our next meal because textbooks are going to take at least two months pay. College is expensive but those who aren't going are only making it worse. They may not be paying now, but unless they are a performance driven workaholic machine, they will be paying for it later.

But maybe there is a bright side.

We do get more freedom, both good and bad. We can start doing all the "real world stuff" that people have been talking about for 18 years.

It's going to be hard.
It's going to be the "real world."
It's going to have some of the best times.
And the very worst times.

It's going to be life.

Never give up.
