Graduation day. That day that feels like it’s a million years away until that last assignment is turned in and the commencement ceremony music starts. For most young adults, graduating high school is their first major life achievement. For four years, they have worked relentlessly on assignments, listened to teachers tell them “it won’t be like this when you’re in college,” and heard every SAT, ACT, and AP speech under the sun. Life after high school seems like the end-all-be-all, that key to the gateway of adulthood. And when that stage has been walked and life after high school really becomes clear, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the prospect of adulthood and college. Those four years are spent telling students what they should do for post high school (usually a four year university), however, people don’t spend much time telling them what they SHOULDN’T do.
