25 Lessons You Learn The Hard Way When You Graduate

REFERENCE. Almost graduating soon. AAAHHHH

Thought Catalog

  1. Unless you happen upon some high-paying, prestigious, prominent position as a venture capitalist, you can expect to see a significant drop in your disposable income. “Pay Yourself” first, and take care of your obligations.
  2. If you’re single (and an asshole, like me), you will have a lot of sex with people you don’t care about. For ≈ 75% of these occurrences, you will be highly intoxicated, and will use this detail to justify your actions to both yourself, and your closest friends. You will experience feelings of self-loathing immediately (or shortly) after the event, post-coital cuddling notwithstanding.
  3. You will lose touch with the people you said would stand in your wedding. This will help you specify those who truly matter to you. The people you would strangle a puppy for, if it meant their joy.
  4. You will come to the unpleasant realization that dreams you had whilst getting shitfaced in…

How You Choose Change

Thought Catalog

Nobody is going to tell you when it’s time to go. Nobody is going to tell you how to move on. They can offer you advice that has worked for them, but at the end of the day, those words of wisdom can only be road signs. You can’t always replace your own GPS. I mean this earnestly, and I mean this even in light of all the advice I spew out. I don’t expect you to always follow it. I don’t expect you to agree. I just hope that, if you’re struggling, something will reignite a fire inside you and fuel you forward until you are able to yourself.

Nobody is going to come and hand you your life. If you are unhappy, nobody else is responsible. At all times, you have two choices: complain or change. And if you continually refuse to choose the latter, you will die…

Love Yourself First And Last

To That Person I Fell In Love With When the Timing Was Just Not Right

wew

Thought Catalog

First of all, let it be known here and now that I did love you. I was only ever cold to you that one time because I cared too much. I didn’t know how I was supposed to act when you heightened such a keen sense of passion in me. I could never think normally when I was around you. Some say that infatuation is different from love but what I felt for you bordered in between. I loved you despite your faults but I also crushed on you like you were the best thing since coffee. You woke me up. You did wake me up.

I was raised by vintage Harlequin books that I used to secretly read when my parents weren’t around. I used to believe that love was breath-taking, consuming and potent – it was all these things and more. Love has the ability to break you…

7 Things You May Be Letting Pass You By

Thought Catalog

This is intended to be in the context of what you’re missing when you’re not living in the “here and now:” the elusive state of being that we’re all lectured on, told tales about the greatness of and yet can rarely seem to accomplish. Here, my friends, are some ideas  that may aide you on that journey. Seven things you may miss if you don’t live in the moment:

1. The love that people are trying to give you. It doesn’t manifest itself and wait around until you’re ready to receive it. Take it today or leave it forever.

People love you. They really, honestly do. It seems like we all spend half of our time painstakingly searching for this great life-changing love when really, love is right in front of our noses. The problem, however, is that as with all things in life, it doesn’t usually look or feel…

Your Best Friend Is Your Soul Mate

THIS.

Thought Catalog

Years ago I met this guy who I was convinced had to be “the one.” He was a six-foot tall graphic designer who had thoughtful tattoos across his arms and on his neck. He was smart and creative. His ears were slightly gauged, he mostly listened to indie dance music and he carried a skateboard. Plus he was a top. These people are like unicorns in the gay world. I was all, OK, now I’m done with dating. Tag — you’re it. But then he confessed that he wasn’t really attracted to black guys sooooo that was that. Hey, sometimes we’re not “the one” for the person we think will take us off the dating market for the rest of our lives and vice versa. Though we never became an item, I have had a few other “ones” since then. But the person I’ve been in a relationship with…

You’re Not Quite The One

Thought Catalog

You’re not quite the one because nothing’s ever happened. You’re in the back of my mind somewhere but our lives have never lined up. We’ve never worked out, not because there isn’t interest — there’s interest, I think — but because the timing’s never been right or the location’s all wrong. You’re not quite the one because we’ve never had the chance to see if you are. Maybe we never will.

You’re not quite the one because you got away. I let you take off in your car or get on that airplane and I chose not to go after you. I put down my sword and beat it into a plowshare. I was not prepared to fight for you. You said, “This is it. I’m gone” and I said, “Good. Good riddance” whether I meant it or not. You’re not quite the one because you left or I left…
