11 Things You Don’t Have To Stop Doing After College
The world will try to tell you otherwise, but Lucky Charms are a legitimate dinner option at any stage in life.
1. Living With Your Parents
Maybe you want to save your money for a car/house/wedding. Maybe your parents need some extra help around the house. Maybe it’s nobody’s business why you live with your parents because it doesn’t affect them! Ohhhh snap.
2. Eating Breakfast for Dinner
Food is food, my friends. If Lucky Charms and bacon are good enough to start my day, they’re good enough to end it!
3. Eating “Kid” Cereal
All Bran? Not something you will ever find in my kitchen. Lucky Charms? I buy them at Costco or on sale, boxes at a time. And yes, I eat the marshmallows last. If you truly enjoy All Bran, I respect you and your lack of taste buds, but you’re never too old for colourful, sugary cereal.
4. Drinking on Weekdays
Let’s be real. If you made it through years of college taking part in Wasted Wednesdays and Thirsty Thursdays, there’s no reason to stop drinking during the week just because you graduated.
5. Working Your Retail Job
We all have that one friend who lands a full time job in their field right out of college, but there’s no shame in sticking around at your less-than-glamorous job for a while after college. If you are getting paid to do anything after graduation, let’s consider that a success!
6. Pursuing New Interests
If you pick up a new interest in basketball during college, no one bats an eye.If you pick up a new interest in basketball after college, people will question how and why you developed this new interest. Don’t let that stop you from pursuing new things you are passionate about!
7. Having Fun Being Single
One by one, your friends will start to get married and have kids, but making out with randoms at the bar isn’t just a college thing! You do you, boo boo.
8. Taking Naps
Believe it or not, there are ways to fit naps in even when your job is less flexible than your college class schedule was. Never give up napping.
9. Going All Out For Birthdays
There’s no limit on partying like you’re finally legal. Who says you can’t pre-drink and go clubbing in a tiara when you turn 35? If anyone tries to stop you, you don’t need them!
10. Celebrating Minor Holidays
Let’s all stop pretending that St. Patrick’s Day is only a big deal when you’re in college. It’s the one day a year you can combine all the green items you own into one outfit. CELEBRATE.
11. F@!king Stuff Up
If you thought college was your time to make mistakes and grow into yourself, you were kind of right. Screwing up every once in a while after college is still totally okay though.
