It's hard for me. More work and exams. My social life has changed because all my hs friends change school and we are more focused on our personal life, but what is good is you choose your own field of study. And I don't work I got scholarship, so less running around c:

After I graduated from university I went straight to law school.

During the period after graduation and starting law school I was trying to find a job just to survive. I was finally offered a good job but law school started and I'm not up to my neck with work. I was advised by my tutor not to get a job because those who do never do well.

Law school is pretty tough and I've been going a lot mentally and emotionally because I've got other problems at the moment. I feel so drained urgh.

Tip: If you're gonna so straight into education after graduation, take a year off or something. (I wish I did)

Oh, and I'm gonna be a so much debt. Oh well, at least I'm not one of those students who have to bear the burden of Clegg's decision not to fight against tuition fees!

The good thing is I dont have to pay any debts and A hospitality and catering qualifications is always good since jobs are alot .

Post-college life is ok, depending on what you do.

After I got my degree, and my military career went downhill, I came home. It really is hard to find a job after getting a degree. I just went for my associates, since I still don't know what I want to pursue really. I started taking online classes, just upper division classes, but I stopped when I realized that I really don't know what I want. I started going to my local community college, taking classes (again, sucked really), but I started going for a certificate in Solar Maintenance. Did an internship at the place I'm working at now and was so lucky that I got picked up by the company.

Wasn't really easy for a year after I graduated, but I was very persistent so I'm one of the lucky people who finally got a job.

And does paying your student loans bother you?
Paying my loans is whatever, since my parents let me live with them now. So I don't have to worry about electrical and phone bills. But I pay for my own gas, car insurance, food, cat supplies, other stuff I want, necessities, and clothing. Then again, because I have a rather decent job I can afford all of this and pay my debts off.

Life after school in general can be an eye opener. I've been around the country quite a few times, and it's been a bit interesting. Just make sure that there are jobs in the area of your study. I feel bad for my best friend has a degree in Anthropology with a minor in Counseling from University of California Riverside, but there are no jobs for her. Get a certificate for an industrial job, honestly that is where the money is.
