So you're this close to snagging that expensive white piece of paper that'll make all your career dreams come true. Congratulations! It may be more than a little intimidating, but bottom line is you can't wait for what the world has to offer you outside of college. Here are 17 reasons.
College was amazing, but after all these years, it's time to spread your wings.
You are but a butterfly.
Because you've been working INSANELY hard for this moment.
Like, so hard you thought you weren't going to make it at one point.
The readings, essays, projects, quizzes, and exams are finally paying off.
Praise the heavens.
All in all, you know you're academically prepared.
Since your school crammed 500,000 facts into your brain.
Not to mention, you can't WAIT to be homework-free.
Bye-bye, coffee-fueled late nights.
You were passionate about your major, and you're excited to apply what you've learned to the real world.
Hello, ACTUAL experience!
The job hunt is stressful, yes, but when you finally nab one, it'll be all the sweeter.
You'll get there.
Thinking about all the independence you'll have gives you butterflies.
Ahh, the taste of freedom.
And you're going to miss your parents a lot, but you sort of can't WAIT to officially fly the nest.
Even if it's not always picture perfect.
True, paying bills will suck, but the freedom that comes with controlling your own finances is incomparable.
You're behind the wheel now.
Speaking of finances — <i>money</i>. You'll finally have some!
Savor the feeling.
You can officially start a savings account.
Like, at a real-live bank.
Oh, and you'll be upgrading from ramen noodles and fast food.
Fancy pizza with 10 toppings, anyone?
You'll trade cheap beer for sophisticated wine.
So. Much. Better.
Maybe even buy some nice clothes for your pending career.
You know, from Forever 21 . . . because you're not that rich yet.
Probably take a much-needed vacation at some point.
Getting your degree calls for a getaway celebration.
Who knows where you'll go? The possibilities are endless, and that's the beauty of it.
The sky's the limit.
