Podcast #55: The Best Parts of Life Post-Graduation

Today’s episode begins with Jess’s movie recommendation: Whiplash. She and Laura discuss the themes of the movie, and how the desire to be the *best* at something fades with age.

Then, the pair get into the topic of the week: the best parts about post-grad! It only took 55 episodes, but we are finally talking about all the things we *like* about being out of college.

Life after graduation, while challenging, is also amazing – and in many ways, better than life in college.

Best Things About Being an Adult

After all, you have the money to work towards your dreams and goals (hello, buying a house!). You finally get to learn some practical skills on the job, and no longer have to spend all your free time studying.

Plus, you have the opportunity to pursue things you didn’t have time for in college, like reading for pleasure or picking up a new hobby. The freedom that comes after you walk the graduation stage is exhilarating, and this episode is dedicated to all the reasons why.

By Laura Davis

Laura was born at the beach in New Jersey, but she'd be the first to tell you her childhood was nothing like Jersey Shore. Sadly. When she's not writing, you can find her reading on her beloved Kindle, listening to true crime podcasts, or looking up adoptable cats.

Outside of her 9-5 as a writer, Laura is the owner of Looks by Laura, an online thrifted clothing boutique. She's the co-founder of Adultescence, a podcast and lifestyle website about navigating that challenging space between adolescence and adulthood. And she makes a mean eggplant parm.
