When you graduate from college, a lot of people ask what you are going to do after. To answer these constant inquiries, I have asked people in my life what they think I should do after college, since I myself have no idea what I am doing.
Don’t work, just go to Europe.
You should keep going to school so you can default on your loans.
Go home and live in your parents’ attic.
Start your own bakery!
Talk a year-long break.
Be an actress!
Add another major and stay at NSS.
Sell all your belongings and become a nomad.
Sleep. A lot. Like for years.
Hit the restart on life.
Watch more Netflix. You still haven’t seen Stranger Things!
Take a gap year.
Be pastor because then you get to take all the money from the offering (FYI: Not how that works).
Move to Kansas City.
Base your debt on cost-benefit as opposed to societal norms.
Become financially independent.
Don’t move far away.
Come home and work on the farm.
The kids I babysit
6 year old: You should work at Dollar General in Overbrook and babysit us!
9 year old: You should be a coworker and a vet.
6 year old: You should be the President’s assistant!
9 year old: No, she can’t do that! Hillary Clinton is already the President’s assistant.
