After graduation plans

what is life after graduation, and is the realization that school was a waste of time just mine, or is it shared by others?

@desibeebee Lol I kind of agree.

Well I disagree because it didn’t take me long to figure out it was more about the experience (friends, fun, other such ‘firsts’ and what not that college ensues) more so than the educational aspect to it. More specifically I should say the institution itself, not the education. A good, healthy education is a part of a great experience at college too. It didn’t take long to realize either that my school’s hierarchy sucked, and for some reason it consumed me in a bad way.
Paying X,000 dollars or more a semester, good/decent grades, never really got in trouble (small school just taddle-tales that whisper names) and it never really seemed we were treated accordingly as good students or the fact the we were students at all. IDK it just sucked to know for a fact as a student that the dean, pres. etc. just kissed ass for money.

Sorry for that rant but that’s mostly why I agree. Also finding relevant jobs to the degree just doesn’t happen at least for me and a few others I know haven’t. I mean it was fun, but not worth all the shit I had to deal with while there or the money I had to pay.

On the other hand, I don’t look at it as some negative thing. For me life is trial and tribulation so it was a learning experience that I got to have for 4 awesome years. Haha I just really wish someone in y life would have said to go to community college first… biggest mistake IMO if you want to go to college.

Sorry for the rant again. Also, elaborate on what you think is the root of you thinking it was a waste of time or if any of this is relative to what you mean.

@desibeebee, Life after graduation is doing whatever you want with the cards you have. Some have to pay off loans, some have to be there for their family, some only have to do whatever they want.

I just graduated in May and was trying to get my career going asap. Didn’t go quite as expected, so I recommend to follow your heart and just roll with the punches. I don’t think school was not a waste of time for me btw. It provided a solid foundation for me in my career interest, and it eventually really helped me get a sweet job that I’m stoked about. I busted my ass in school though.

Some typos in there, but you get it.
