“The brick walls are not there to keep us out; the brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something.” -Randy Pausch, The Last Lecture
Let me tell you, college is challenging. Those brick walls they place, it didn’t occur to me that I would be hurling through obstacles with sleepless nights to get it. Professors drove me hard and will keep pushing me until I fall. But the lesson was not that I can fail, but to get back up and try harder.
I’m going to paint a picture for you “Top 3 Things: Big Dreams (you might want to think about) right after college”
1. Your first “real world” job
Find a job that you love and makes good money. Get an internship for that job before you graduate. One of the most important things in post-graduate world. If you’re interested in graduate school, be sure to research it before you graduate. There are companies out there that offer tuition assistance to employers who pursue graduate school
2. Your first “real place”
My dream is that I want to have my own apartment. Starting from scratch– I can say that I truly earned everything in my home/bachelor’s pad. I would love to visit IKEA and decorate my place just like it.
3. Your first “real car”
Nothing compares to the feeling of getting up for work to a job you love, and seeing your car in the morning. It’s like a symbol of what you have achieved. Go research a car you love and as is also within budget
All in all, it’s going to be a busy weekend. RA/PM Interviews will start and I need to get my suit and interview applicants.
Good luck to all that applied!
