I kind of feel sorry for kids getting out of school these days. I graduated from college a while ago and the economy was doing pretty well and jobs were plentiful.
There’s a ton of uncertainty and it’s really tough out there!
Here are some painful yet funny tweets that sum up life these days after getting out of school.
1. Welcome to Moe’s!

My post grad life:
**Replaces homework at Starbucks with online shopping at Starbucks**

3. Sounds like a blast.
Me and my gals in college: yaaaas let’s drink this BAG of wine & go DAAAANCING
Me and my gals now: Ok so what you are experiencing is repressed trauma and what im about to guide you through is called dialectical behavior therapy

7. A whole new ballgame.
things nobody tells you about post grad: you now have to figure out men’s ages by looking at their linkedin profiles and calculating how many years have passed since they finished college

It’s crazy after college you enter the real world. Just you and your debt. You’re all a loan

13. Didn’t quite work out how you thought it would…
Me: [after college graduation] I will leave the world a better place than I found it
Me: [now] basically a hermit who only likes 4 people and laughs at their own jokes

We want to hear from you! Have you graduated from school in the last couple of years? How did it go for you once you got out into “the real world”?
