Millennial Real Talk: Life After College Is Actually Better--And Here's Why

It’s been almost a year since I graduated college and I’m kind of freaking out. Last May I was still a kid (okay, young adult), and my home was where my parents lived. Fast forward nine months and I’m now a real person, livin’ in the real world. I have a full-time job and my own place on the island of Manhattan. So I probably sound super annoying for saying it, but being 272 days out of college (yes, I counted), is making me feel old.

But ask any of my friends how they feel about post-grad life and they will tell you they love it, no, that it’s better than college. And you know what, the more I think about what I’ve done since graduating, the more I agree with them on this one. Sure, it’s no longer socially acceptable for me to go to frat parties and wear pajamas in public, but when you have your own money to spend and the freedom to choose who you want to see and when (no awkward next day run-ins!), life ain’t so bad.

Your world won’t come crashing down the second you leave the bubble called campus. You get to have your freshman year of life, meeting new people and learning new things. We all know how much fun our first year was, but didn’t school get better and better each year? Well, same thing goes for real life, and you’re already starting with an advantage, now that you know your tolerance and what time you need to go to sleep to actually get some shut eye.

Don’t believe me? Click the slideshow to see 8 reasons why life after college is actually better, and you’ll forget why you ever missed (or think you’ll miss) Natty Light.
