The transition into post-graduate life is enigmatic, simply because it is not what we expect. There is a huge disparity between what we hear about post-graduate life and the firsthand experience of living the post-graduate life. Graduating from college is a glorified event as well as a rite of passage into adulthood. As people emphasize the grand liberation of their newfound freedom, they purposely exclude the unsettling details of this transition.

In “Revelations”, I aim to share the lessons and epiphanies I’ve collected and will continue to collect as I move through this growth period. This series will simultaneously serve as a record of my progress this year.
