As I approached graduation back in May I began to realize there was a lot more to graduation than receiving a diploma. I was going to have to say goodbye to my professors, my friends, and all the activities/jobs that kept me busy (and sane) over the past four years. I saw this as the next big challenge I would be faced with. And boy was I right.
I went from having a couple hours of free time a week, to only being busy for a couple hours per week. I was going crazy.
So I started reading… a lot… Until that began to bore me, so I organized my closets, drawers, room, and anything else I could find that needed organizing. At this point of my summer I was still job searching, had read a ton, was very organized, and still bored.
I decided I would begin to learn to use my new Canon Rebel T3i.
I have taught myself all of the basic functions (I think!) my camera has, and have attempted to do a couple of creative things but I still want to learn more. I plan to treat myself to a photography class as soon as I land my first job! I am hoping that I will learn even more about photography, my camera, and Photoshop in whatever class I decide to take!
Stay tuned for updates on my latest hobby!
There are many students in my class that are graduating this year. Which is really exciting because I’m graduating with them, just with a different degree. At first, it made me nostalgic thinking about my years after college. Then, it made me think of things that I wish someone had told me about secrets to life. It’s important to know what to buy when you move out of your dorm or even how to deal with those crazy roomies. But below are life lessons for life after college:
1.) Always keep learning. Never stop discovering and understanding new concepts.
2.) Be more respectful than you should be to others.
3.) Always say thank you. Even if it is for the smallest gesture.
4.) Your parents are awesome.
5.) Save at least $20/ week for the purpose of seeing new places.
6.) Travel. Travel a lot. And travel to other countries.
