No one talks about the transition from college to the real world. And I mean NO ONE! I assume this is because no one wants to revisit this odd transition of their life, especially if it's been anything like mine. Out of my college friends, I was one of the ones looking forward to graduation. I had a job lined up and I ~THOUGHT~ I was ready. Most of my peers were dreading graduation. They didn't want everything to end and to ultimately say goodbye. I've never been one to hold on to the past. I've, for the most part, enjoyed moving forward. I guess that's because things seemed to work out for me. In college, I never had a moment where I was unsure what I wanted to do. Yeah it was hard to decide which social I wanted to attend on any given Friday night, but nothing really life changing. Having said that, I experienced so much "withdraw" from college.

My summer was anything but ordinary. I competed in Miss Ohio, house sat for some friends in a 2-story apartment in the middle of the Upper West Side in New York City, and worked at an equity playhouse doing Footloose, The Musical. I was busy but empty. I just kept thinking I was weak for missing my friends and house dinners with my roommates.

It wasn't until earlier this month that I realized that missing college is okay. It's amazing that I have great memories and friendships that will last a lifetime but just because we aren't together doesn't mean the memories OR friendships end!

I may not know exactly what I want to do with my life, but that is also OKAY. I am 22 years old and I don't have to know.
