008: The Post-College Period

In this episode, Anna and Maria discuss the transition from college into the somewhat murky yet very exciting post-college period. Maria talks about her experience finding community out in the Real World, how it’s different from finding community in college, and what has worked well for her. The cousins also dive into the topic of career: the pressures we put on ourselves to find the perfect career and start pursuing it right out of school and why this isn’t helpful. They offer what they believe to be a better option (at least for those of us who haven’t known our ideal occupation since we were four years old). To offset some of the existential quarter life crisis vibes, the episode ends on a positive note with a few of the things Maria is enjoying about this period of life, and both cousins express their gratitude for their college experience and for the support and opportunities they’ve received along the way.
