What Is Life Really Like After University?

woman-notebook-working-girlIf you are reading this, we can only presume that you are a few terms away till graduating, finishing your thesis, or gearing up to graduate. You’ve already ordered your gown, booked your gown and are currently mustering some words to add to yourFacebook profile caption when you get to finally post your graduation photo online, FINALLY. I know, It’s a wonderful feeling. You are finally about to graduate. The feeling is unexplainable. Its a mixture of pride, happiness and accomplishment. 

With all these feelings, I can’t help to mention that there is also a feeling of anxiety that comes with it. Yes, you are about to enter the big bad world of adulthood. But in order to be sure of having a smooth landing, I have come up with a few truths that come with entering the real world.


Ignore What Bitter People Say

I am not going to tell you that the real world will be strawberry fields forever–Beatles reference. However, it can be fun if you want it to be. Multiple times you are going to meet a lot of grumpy people who dislike their lives and drag their feet the whole time at work. Ignore these people. Your job can be enriching, satisfying and meaningful. It all stems on your attitude towards it.

Stay On Top Of Your Paperwork

The inevitable has come! Taxes, 401K enrollments, healthcare forms and oh god..paying rent. We all have to all start from somewhere. Get ahead and get organized.

Don’t Compare Yourself To Others

I feel as if everyone who graduates then goes to Europe for their master degree or lands an awesome job in a multinational company. These people make it seem so easy. Sometimes you will pretend to be super proud of them but really, there is a hint of jealousy in there. Don’t allow social media do this to you. Live your best life. A life that fits your means.

Your Major Will Not Matter Sometimes

This realization might shock recent graduates that end up getting a job that has no connection to their major. That’s why life skills are way more important. Don’t worry too much though. You have plenty of time to figure out your true passion, build a business and grow a family.

LOL…You might have been expecting a makeup favorites. But I honestly can’t get over how great this month has been! No weekends sleeping in or just lazying around! I was so productive and had a social life(surprisingly). So this is me sharing my month, if you guys don’t mind. 😉


This past month has been absolutely hectic! With all my weekends booked and too many deadlines to finish, I would find myself passed out on my bed with not much energy left after a full day of work and such. But I am definitely not complaining! I am SO grateful for everything that I have and all the people I have in my life.

The month started of celebrating my late birthday on Labor Day weekend at the beach or how I would like to call it, #LaborBeyWeekend! with my friends and family, plus we had a Luau night that was Moana themed! I definitely felt that my life came in full circle that night with all my favorite people in 1 room!

I was so lucky this month to have 2 amazing beach weekends(with great weather and company). I got to spend some quality time with some of my family from overseas and just catching up with rest of my family in general. If you can’t tell yet, I love family time!

Then my workmates and I took a weekend trip in the wilderness for our summer outing. I was a little but hesitant at first because I knew that we were going to be roughing it a bit. But I definitely have #NORAGRETS after that weekend. I got to know my workmates more and made some lovely memories with them too!

4 Ways How To Manage Your Anxiety

pexels-photo-30342

Not many people realize it, but anxiety can easily ruin a person’s life. As I write this, I am about to start a new job and I am thinking about how difficult it will be juggling a full-time job, a growing business and my blog all the same time. But I know I am not alone in all of this because one third of the population experiences this horrible sickness. As impossible as it may seem, there are a few things that may help ease the worry that is just “all in your head”.


Talk to a friend

Just like writing, we sometimes need to vent out what we feel inside to someone. Let it be someone you love and trust or a therapist. So in that way, you get emotional support from some you are familiar with and can help rationalize your problem.

Get off your phone/social media

I hate the fact that Social Media only depicts the positive sides and never the negative side of a person’s life. Switching it off may relieve all those feelings of inadequacy and will stop you from comparing your life with others. 

This makes it a good reason for you to do some Netflix and Chillin’!

Write down your thoughts

I used to write journals about my day when I was in elementary and I think I just lost that spark as I grew older. It is always good to let out your feelings on paper. It allows you to just dump out all your feelings on a page without any criticism. It’ll definitely help you understand the emotions that you are feeling and probably give you a laugh when you read it a few years after(I know I did). 

Have fun a little

Find a hobby!, whether it be biking, team sports, sewing or even painting. Create your own little window of joy and laughter to overcome what emotions you are feeling once you see the symptoms.
