Graduation day is marked with mixed feelings for the person graduating with college as that means leaving that carefree world into the rough and tumble of the real world. The mixed feeling is of emotion and sadness at leaving the college. The environment that you leave behind is so cheerful and very fun filled with an air of freedom and youthfulness.
The feeling on the other side is of the responsibilities you will take on in life. The focus you will need to have in life among several other things. You will be like that small child that comes out of the secure of a mothers womb into the world. The college is like a fortress that shields you from the outside influences.
To meet your expenses you have always done jobs but now you are onto the streets looking for a job which will pay all your expenses and that is the only thing that will keep you alive. As you grow out of college there will be a few friends willing to share their room with you. In college you could just go and knock on college friends doors and they will always be more than welcoming to you.
