- Class skips are kind of like PTO
Remember when they told you that you could only skip class three times before you failed out? Well you only get a certain amount of paid time off until you get fired!
- Lack of sleep
In college, you lacked sleep because of all night partying an the occasional paper due at 8 AM. In the real world, you lack sleep because you’re so stressed out and have to wake up at 5:30 AM every day.
After 10 drinks in college, you would nurse a gnarly hang over in the morning. After 1 glass of wine in the real world, you nurse the same hang over. So at least you’re used to being hungover.
- Getting sick all the time
You’d think you’d outgrow this, but going from the college atmosphere to the office atmosphere still exposes you to a lot of sick people.
- Never cooking
In college you’d either order fast food or head to the dining hall on campus. In the real world, you don’t have time to grocery shop or cook or just don’t feel like it – so you eat out a lot still.
- Being poor
You might get a job after college, but you’ll probably still be poor
- Being on your own
It might not feel like it, but college actually does do a good job preparing you to be on your own. It’s not all fun and games anymore, but you were handed the tools to survive. You can do it!!
