@Dizbee:  I’ll be excited to, as you stated, only have one job; most importantly, I’ll be excited to have a job and no homework to get to afterwards! I CANNOT WAIT!!!

@Dizbee:  +1000!!

I will not miss paying to work for free (aka internships!)

I will not miss earning negative money (aka loans!)

No more homework! When I come home I can kick back and not feel guilty!

I can finally have a career! (didn’t have one out of undergrad, but now I’ll have a specialized Master’s)

I can actually earn money and Fiance and I can save more for the wedding/a house/the future!

Just so many positives!

I just landed my dream job and I’ll be finishing up school very soon. I’m excited to move across the country and get started!

I graduated from undergrad almost four year ago (eek), but I remember being really excited to have a stable paycheck. I worked throughout undergrad, but it wasn’t always consistent and it definitely wasn’t a lot of money. I was also excited about the idea of no homework. Although I take work home with me and have long days/weeks, it is so different than mulling away at homework.

Definitely ready for a steady paycheck!  I agree about only having one job. Unpaid internships are awful =( 

I am nervous about interviewing for jobs, but I am SO excited to finally find a great job in my field!

I look forward to having a baby AFTER I spend nearly a year in my first job in my new chosen career.

I will not miss when I get this little notifications from my loan providers like, “$5,000 has been dispersed, account balance now $25,000.” I will not miss the fact that I specifically found a job for MWF because my dept. head always schedules classes on TTh only to have her decide that she wants to schedule classes on MWF as well! I won’t miss having to limit work hours because with my school schedule I could work full time, but it’s hard to find a full time job that will give me off two days per week and allow me to work weekends. I will not miss only having $250 leftover after I pay living expenses. I will not miss not being able to start an actual life for myself!

I’m excited for…

1. Marriage! I’m getting married 2 1/2 weeks after I finish school.

2. Actually getting paid to work. Right now, I’m a student teacher, so I’m literally paying the university so that I can work 40-50 hours a week (with planning, it’s probably closer to 50 than 40).

I know the feeling! I graduate in 9 weeks (9 WEEKS!), and I’m dying to get my career started. I’ve been in college for 8 years on and off, and I’m done with it. 

Most of all, I’m going to look forward to having a steady income (hopefully), and moving in with Fiance. I also cannot wait to take a leap and move to a new city after our wedding.

Not having to do so much homework in different subjects. I know I’ll still have to bring work home with me, but I’m hoping it won’t be in several very unrelated studies. I’m also looking forward to being able to plan vacations during non-peak seasons (I’m tired of planning trips around school breaks).

I’m in med school and won’t be finished until I’m 26, and then I have residency till I’m 30. I’m looking forward to not feeling guilty when I’m not doing work

@Dizbee:  I know, gosh. My SO and I are planning a trip to Europe for me to go look at universities for grad school, and the only time we can go is right after finals, we’re hoping to go from around May 19th-June 3rd or so, so just at the beginning of peak season, but all the return flights are so expensive because of the high season.
