Well, here I go! In this first attempt to create an appealing blog to everyday people why not tell you who I am. First things first, my name is Ethan Barnes and I am 22 years old. I love to workout, listen to music, and play video games. I am one of the most competitive people I know and sometimes it bites me in the ass. I love sports of all kinds but mainly football and collegiate wrestling. My favorite color is blue, my favorite type of food is Mexican, and lastly my favorite season is fall.
Yeah that’s me right there…actually circa summer 2014 during camp for football. I myself have recently graduated from college less than a month ago. I was a psychology major and ended up completing my Bachelors Degree. You know throughout college I expected that as soon as I walked across that stage with degree in hand, the world would be my oyster. Oh how I was wrong!
Almost every high school student imagines going to college and then landing their dream job right after they graduate and never having to take orders from anyone but themselves or their boss. Well long story short…WAKE UP STUPID! For some of you/them this does come true, but for people like me, you begin the Real World Grind. This includes moving back home with your parent and or guardian, waking up everyday to do the chores you haven’t had to do since you went off to college, and my favorite the endless hours of job hunting.
I currently lead a rather simple life lately (yawn), my day starts around 9:00am EST and ends around 11:00pm EST. I can say my days have gotten pretty routine since leaving college. I wake up, make my one egg and blueberry oatmeal for breakfast, and then plug away for 2-3 hours looking at job posts. After successfully completing and filling out numerous job applications I turn off the family computer and proceed to get dressed and ready to leave my parents house for the gym. I then proceed to spend around 2 hours of the day at the gym and return home. I shower, eat my lunch and then go sit by my phone for the rest of the day in hopes for a callback whilst also doing my daily chores (dishes, clothes, lawn care, and trash disposal). I then end my day with some video gaming and a nice dinner.
This has been rinse and repeat since graduation on May 14th. Needless to say my life has become pretty monotonous with little change. This is the exact reason I have decided to create this little blog of mine. Maybe by sharing my experience post graduation I can either help people learn what to expect (or even a what not to do guide), be a shoulder to lean on for others, and possibly provide some of your lives with humor.
So thanks for coming by and hopefully you come back tomorrow around 6:00pm EST for my latest installment!
