Do I Look Smarter?

Well hello there blogworld!

Great news! I, yes I as in ME, Ms Fresh Banana Puddin’ graduated from college! Woo hoo! I know some of ya’ll thought I was dead cold in the gutter somewhere, my flask next to me dripping the remnants of last night, but no. I was finishing up doing something that took me little longer than most.

Oh well at least I got it done. Between large quantities of alcohol, weekend trips to Vegas and hopping over my ex-boyfriend’s fence, it’s a wonder I managed to finish anything at all.

Although, over the last few days I’ve heard enough speeches about “the real world” that I really don’t even want to be a graduate anymore. A “real” job? What is this? Who wants to get up before noon every day? Boo.

Any suggestions as to what my next step should be? Any fresh-out-of-college stories?

All of my fresh-out-of-college stories are soaked in booze and some breed of depression.

But huzzah for graduation!!!

deutlich said...

I say you do whatever the heck you want.

the post-graduation year was all sorts of up and down for me.. so I'm not all too sure I'm the right person to give advice, lol.

Slick said...

WOOOOHOOOOO!!

Congrats, girl!!

She W0rd Hustlez said...

Omg, congratulations! I always admire and commend those who actually finish school no matter what trials and tribulations they face along the way. Way to go Ms.! Here I was feeling some type of way over not being able to read any recent blogs of yours while passing time at this job of mine that I wake up for at 6 am! Loll. No fresh out of college stories from me, but I have been at what is called a "real" job for the past 5 years. Sucks ass! Some days I'd much rather be somewhere with " my flask next to me dripping the remnants of last night". Loll, but it's well worth it. I hope that you find a job/career that suits you and much success comes from it.

Congrats. Now you just need to go to trade school so you can get a job that's actually worth somethin'. Try anything computer related that comes with a lot of indiscernible certifications (GSE, CCSP, CISSP, CCNP, CWNA, CWAP, CWSP, etc.,etc.).

What was your major, by the way? Flyness?

anonymousnupe said...

More importantly, what are you wearing under that robe?!

sequined said...

Congrats!

I'm looking for something to do, too, so I wish I had advice. Being in the "real world" is sometimes too much work for me.

Suite B said...

CONGRATS...YOU ARE NOW A PROFESSIONAL...not the other kind of professional!

He Loves Me.....NOT said...

Congrats!!!!! Graduating from college is a major accomplishment!!
I remember the real world speeches and damn it made me scared. I was right the real world SUCKS ASS.
Life is what you make it so continue to have fun. The only advice I can offer is if you plan to go to graduate school don't wait to long to go back. It's hard as hell to get into study mode again after a dose of the "real world"

YoungBlackBeauty said...

Congratulations! I'll be joining you this December and I'm scared str8, not to mention all my post-grad friends aren't looking too good in the job market. But I'm rooting for you! Good Luck!

oestrebunny said...

Congratulations!

Christina said...

Congratulations! PARTY!! lol

c.watson said...

Congratulations! After college I got a "real" job then freaked out and went back to college because working sucks.

LadyShay said...

Congrats Chick!!!

Dani said...

Congrats!!

Muze said...

awwww. congrats!!!!

...sucks that now you have to enter the real world though.


boooo. um yeah, good luck with that. lol.

Stew said...

congrats!!! i don't want to sound like an ass, but i thought you were older than "college age".

anyhow...

well it seems as if you are COMPLETELY done with school, but if you are not, then grad school is a good idea. at least you can stay away from the "real world" for a bit longer.

no good fresh out of college stories here. just got out of undergrad and started grad.

congrats again!!!!

Dee La said...

Congratulations!!!
I know how you feel about entering the real world. It doesnt sound appealing to me either. Wish i could stay in college forever.
But the only advice i can give is to follow your heart and do what makes you the happiest. Once again congratulations.

G-Sweet said...

CONGRATS Homie!!!

Mizrepresent said...

I just want to say Congrats gurl, you did your thing, now make it out to be what you want it to be...Your destiny is yours!

That Saddity Chic said...

12kyle said...

congrats!!! pop bottles!!!

if i were you...i'd sign up for 20 more classes. you wanna avoid this "post graduate real world bs" for as long as possible. haaaaa

lotta jobs out there...not a lotta careers.

congrats, again!!

Can-ye West said...

congrats... this inspires my to want something more with my life, take out excessive loans (or take out small loans and double my time within), drink and smoke away the excess loan money, get the girl I fucked on my phone's camera at that frat party pregnant, drink and smoke THAT pain away, finally hit the finish line and wonder what the fuck I'm gonna do with my bachelors in liberal arts... but I hope you have a successful and prosperous career wherever you end up

James Tubman said...

Sequined- thanks! Well we ll keep each other posted.

Suite b- yay!

Ladyshay- thanks mamas!

Dani- thanks!

Muze- thanks. Yeah. I should email you because I know you get work as a writer and I would prefer to do that.

Stew- you are an ass. Naw lol. I am “older” than college age. But what is college age anyway? I graduated high school in 02’ you do the math…I can’t afford grad school. Its off to the work force.

Dee la- hey there. Thanks! And thanks for the words.

g- thanks homie!! Lol

miz r- yessssssss!

That saddity chic- thanks mamas!

12k- haha bottles have been popped. I can’t afford anymore classes. I need to get a job! Ouch.

Can-ye- yessss! Do something more w your life. You only get one! All I got out of that was you smoked out the girl on your camera phone and got pregnant? Handle that.

James- aw thanks for the compliment. Yeah I have a feeling things will work out.

Pew- what! You can get sick from that?

q- thanks mamas!

karrie b- lol oh stop! 2058 I will probably be getting my 5th plastic surgery procedure done, so you should be finished w school.

Monie- yay! Keep truckin’

Cr- I know. You sure did disappear. I thought that’s where you went…

Slausin-Ass Slaus said...

Ohhhh snaP!!! congrats baby honey lady person chick rockhead girl.

thats awesome!

best advice... dont be afraid to take chances...

been a corporate minion now for 11 years. full of ups and downs but defintely more ups.

best advice I can give...
Never be afraid of taking a chance
Practice interviewing
Always ask tons of questions in an interview
Dont put off shyt. If it can be done today, DO IT TODAY.

i've hired plenty of folks right of out school and experienced proffessionals.. nothing sets you apart from everyone else like ambition and exceeding expectations.
