As a college senior, I am starting to plan out for the rest of my year, including what happens after I graduate. I am starting to figure out where I am going to be a year from now. I am starting to figure out what my life is going to look like in the real world. I am starting to figure out who I want to be in the real world.
While I figure that all out, I've realized that I am going to need money -- money to buy food, money to pay for rent. That was the reason I that, instead of doing an internship or more theatre this summer break, I got a job and made money -- so that I was prepared, financially, for whatever came along next.
