As a recent college graduate (or not so recent anymore) this past May 2019, I’ve been asked pretty frequently how and what I did in college to prepare for the stage of my life I am in now. The four years fly by extremely fast and next thing you know, you are done with school (maybe even for good) and now you’re stressed about hitting the real world. Reality sucks, but there also so many opportunities to plan ahead and get ahead of the game while you’re still in school and I share all about my personal tips and what I did leading up to the point of graduation.

The only move I’ve ever done was moving from a small rural town in Pennsylvania to a large suburban city in Orange County, California. Since then, I’ve considered what it would be like living in an actual big city, like Manhattan, NY or Washington, DC.
