Featured Blog- Go Grad Girl

Hello lovely FTLOB readers, my name is Brooke! I’m a 21-year-old jobless, recent college graduate (as of ~ 1 week ago) whose life is currently in a state of limbo. Living in my college town of Columbus, OH for the summer (68 days left, and counting), I’m trying to adjust to life after university and find a job/fellowship/service project (basically anything) that’ll allow me the financial security to stay put in Columbus and not have to go back home to the suburbs.
My blog, Go Grad Girl, documents my transition from college to the real world and everything that that entails, from dating and meeting new people to finding a big girl job and getting into graduate school. I blog about the goings-on in my life, societal issues that affect young women, things that inspire me, etc.

Being fresh out of college for about only a week, I’ve spent the past couple of days catching up on sleep and taking care of errands I’ve been putting off. Having no responsibilities has been nice, but I know that I’m going to get bored soon and I’m starting to feel the pressure of finding a job.

I currently live with my best friend, Alex, and two new subleasers who are friends of my other two roommates that just moved out and went off into the real world. It’s weird seeing my closest friends move out and new people move in to the house that has been my home for the past two years. And it’s even weirder to watch most of my other friends leave Columbus for new jobs, graduate school, to move back home, etc.
I’ll be spending my summer applying for a gazillion jobs, studying for the September GRE, and hanging out with my friends who are still in Columbus, as well as making new friends, all the while documenting everything on my blog, Go Grad Girl.
Feel free to drop by, comment, follow, etc. I love finding and reading new blogs!

I just went through this less than 4 months ago so I can appreciate what you're going through!
I'll definitely check it out...I'm a grad girl ~1 week ago myself. I so hear you! Except I'm a little older...23 instead of 21...I had some bumps along the way, I really should have actually been 20 (wtf?!) when I graduated, but life throws you curveballs. I'm going for grad school too, but I have to get a big-girl job and save up some money in between. Good luck :)
headed there to check it out now....Love finding new blogs
