19 Problems All 2015 Graduates Will Recognise Right Now
If you graduated last year, there’s a good chance you’ll recognise these problems.
1. Realising it’s now been a whole year since you were a student.
2. And wondering if this means you can no longer call yourself a recent graduate.
Serious question – when do you stop being a "recent graduate"? Asking for a friend….

3. While questioning why you still, after all this time, don’t really feel ready to be an “adult” yet.
4. You know that people expect you to have your shit together by now.
5. And if you haven’t found a graduate job yet, that is just all the stress.
6. It doesn’t help knowing that loads of students are about to graduate and clog up the already competitive job market.
7. People have gone from politely asking what your plans are to kind of aggressively telling you to get a move on.
8. Even if you have a job, you just replace the stress of looking for one with the stress of keeping one.
9. You don’t see your uni friends very often. Despite you all promising you’ll stay in touch.
10. In fact, the last time you saw most of them was at graduation. A whole year ago.
11. You still miss student life and your university a lot.
12. And you’re not really sure how you’re ever supposed to move on.

13. You still don’t have answers to most questions about your life.
14. And the basics of adult life still get the better of you.
Who let me graduate? I don't know how to adult…
