New Year, New Goals, Real Expectations
Happy New Year, Aftergrads! Let's be real with ourselves this year. After graduating college, it's a beautiful moment to take in all the possibilities and opportunities, but what if our plan doesn’t happen?! What if the opportunity doesn't make you happy?! What if you're not accepted?! As Aftergrads, we must be prepared for the unexpected outcome in order to maintain our mental, physical, and spiritual wellbeing. In 2022, we want to focus on conceptualizing the true beauty of this changing moment and work on the controllable aspects of our lives to enhance the experiences that lead us to our aspirations.
