I’m about to graduate with my BA and I’m sort of freaking out. Dealing with finding work, figuring out where I can afford to live without knowing if I’m going to be employed, and getting ready to take my certification exams is daunting. I’m super stressed and not handling it well. I’ll be doing an online MA program so I won’t be fully out in the world, but it doesn’t stop the “EVERYTHING IS CHANGING AND OH GOD, what the hell am I even doing???” freakout.

Can I hear folks’s experiences graduating and transitioning into the real world? How did it go for you? What did you wish you knew?

Edited to add: kinja isn’t letting me reply to comments, but I am reading them and appreciate your input!!
