Look at these graduates…
Happy and excited about the world that waits them beyond this moment.
I used to be just like them.
Utterly thrilled to partake in life after undergrad.
Now? Not so much.
And I’d hate to blame this feeling on one thing because it’s a culmination of many screw ups and set ups that brought me to the bottom of this particular pit.
Getting rejected from grad school, not being chosen for a full time position after a short stint interning in my field, being rejected from multiple full time positions, not completing my artistic projects…
The list goes on and on.
And I’d hate to say that a degree guarantees you a bigger salary because it doesn’t. Not in this economy. Paying thousands of dollars to be in debt for a lifetime. Right?
It feels like everything has been all about rejection and failure since May 9…
And with my not so wide view on life [due to youth] it’s starting to feel like that’s all life is about.
Rejection and failure.
But everyone says it gets better. You’re too talented not to do this… You’re too smart not to do that…
The only purpose for this post was just to say it.
So it’s been said.
And that’s all I can say about that.
