You have your diploma hung in a pretty frame on the wall and you’re ready to start taking over the world! You even have your first interview coming up. Fingers crossed, that diploma will be making its way on a wall in an office in some swanky firm with your name engraved on the glass, an amazing view, and maybe even a nice leather sofa for when you need to relax.
Come on; you can’t tell me you haven’t daydreamed about getting that perfect job and that PERFECT office! Even though it won't happen instantly, and you will have to work for that fantastic view, getting an interview for an entry-level position that will have you sitting in a cubicle (most-likely) is a definite step towards your goal. So rejoice and get excited!

Students in middle school, high school, college, and university are taking the next big leap towards their future; they’re graduating! It’s an especially exciting time for parents and family members who get to watch their graduate put on their commencement gowns and caps, walk the stage, and be recognized for all of their hard work. For many students, this great achievement is not only theirs, it’s also for their parents, their family and their friends who have helped, supported, and guided them throughout the years.
Today, when I woke up in the morning to get ready for my big day, I couldn’t believe it. It has been something that I’ve worked towards for the past four years. You can’t imagine the number of “all-nighters” I pulled, or days in the library I spent, or Friday nights in the editing suites at school that would turn into early mornings just finishing assignment after assignment. Although I was very excited and happy about this very important moment in my life, it didn’t really hit me that I was graduating. It felt like an out-of-body experience where I was watching myself walk through the steps, get on stage, shake hands with the important people, get my diploma and sit back down.
Winter is making its way to the back of our mind now that the weather is getting warmer and warmer...
