Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte, & Samantha

Many a times I get stopped by friends who are still in college and they always ask the same question, "is life after college as fabulous as it seems?" and my response is always the same, "No." Life after college or as I like to refer to it as "LAC" is way overrated. Bills, student loans, rent, full time job. There's also the 3 b's- bridal showers, bachlorette's, and bridesmaids. This also becomes your full time job. The only satisfaction is knowing that you will one day have the opportunity to torture your friends like they tortured you. I kid, I kid. Weddings are fun...when your drunk :) You also don't live in a fabulous apartment over looking skyscrapers nor have the closet full of jimmy choo's or bcbg dresses. You have blank walls and leftover furniture that your parents handed down to you. You spend your nights and sometimes sadly even weekends sitting on your couch watching grey's anatomy and wondering why you don't have a boyfriend. So this raises the question of why LAC isn't this fabulous time in your life where you feel like you should be in an episode of sex and the city. I think we expect too much. We want the cinderella ending after college and we forget that we have to make the most of what we got. 
The more you put in the more you get out of it. I can not tell you how many times I heard that in high school, college, and especially sorority. I think on some level we sometimes forget that can be a motto to life. You have to keep on keepin' on. So it's time to get off the couch, put grey's on pause, and make life fabulous. Because are fabulous.
