I do not know what to do after I graduate in May next semester. I am honestly a little scared to go out into the real world and I kind of want to put it off. I feel like my whole life up to this point has just revolved around school and being a good student. I am almost 22 years old and I have no real hobbies because school takes up all my time; I would like to have hobbies and more interests. I want a full life full of meaning and I don’t feel like I have that right now. I think it is more important to find myself now then it is to go out and drown myself in a real world job that I still do not feel prepared for. College is supposed to educate you and prepare you for the real world, but I honestly think college is lacking on doing this. I don’t feel all that prepared and I am someone who spends all their time being a research assistant and being the president of my academic club… so if I don’t feel ready or prepared enough, who does? I also feel like classes are not all that challenging anymore. They have just gotten so easy and they offer so much extra credit; there is no extra credit in the real world. When you don’t do A work, you get fired. I just don’t feel ready to enter the real working world, but I do feel like I am ready to get out of this educational system. I honestly just want to keep working my waitressing job for a bit. I make good money and I know what I’m doing and I can finally have time to relax and figure out more of who I am.
My name is Megan Kaiser and I am currently a senior in college. I attend Southern Illinois University Edwardsville in Edwardsville, IL where I am working on completing a Bachelor degree in Public Health. I am originally from Bloomington-Normal, IL where I lived for my entire life up until my move to college.
After I graduate with my degree, I plan to take some time off from school and get a job in my field to gain experience. I hope I can land a job at a local or state level public health department. After some time away from school, I plan to return to get my Masters in either Public Administration or in Public Health. My overall goal is to work as a program director or as a higher up in a big health organization like the World Health Organization.
In my personal time, I love to travel. I had the opportunity to study abroad twice in college. I lived in London, England during the summer of 2015 and then Ghana, Africa during the summer of 2016.
When I’m not traveling the world, I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I like to attend live music events or festivals in big cities. I also enjoy a good hike though and getting in touch with nature.
