It's Going to Feel Bad for 6 Months

“It’s like every day you just go to work and then you go home and then you do the same thing. You just do it all over. And then the work is never done. By definition the work will never be over.”

Your first “big girl job” can bring equal amounts of excitement and dread. There’s no shame in being a bit overwhelmed, or even feeling jealous of other post-grad people who look like they’re crushing it. But don’t be fooled—it’s hard out here.
