I am going to be honest with you guys…the first couple years after college are super hard! Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy that I’m gainfully employed and living in the greatest city in the world, but working full time at any job is not a walk in the park. In college, I went to class, did my homework, worked part-time, did artistic hobbies, held leadership positions, partied with my friends, did the dishes, and still somehow had some free time left over. When you work full-time, finding the time to do those little things that make life fun is much more challenging! You’re tired after grinding all day and are often forced to prioritize basic chores over hobbies or hanging out with friends.
