Sorry to break it to you…but your life after college isn’t as fabulous as it looks when you’re in college.

Thought you would be the next Anna Wintour? A lot of us are settling for that unpaid internship. Certain that good wine and steak would be a regular weekday meal? We just spruce up our ramen with boiled eggs and mystery ingredients from the fridge.

And while it was super fun to think of our amazing lives outside of college, the reality will shock you.

That is, if you aren’t already living this kind of post-grad life, which isn’t half-bad when I think about it.

But to a dreaming senior in college, these are the cold, hard facts. Don’t kill me, I’m just the messenger.
