55. The Best Parts of Life Post-Graduation
Play • 1 hr 10 min

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. 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.
