Every time I see people post life wisdom on Facebook, a part of me dies. In that it jumps off a building.

I just turned 26. I will be graduating in December. I have nowhere to go. And I have no idea what I want to do after that. Yet, I still need to somewhere to go and something to do to pay bills & loans, and otherwise make life worthwhile. I know I want to go to grad school eventually, but I’m also painfully aware that I need a break from schooling. I’ve never lived outside of the state, having only left it maybe 5 or 6 times.

I’m 26 years old, I’m only just starting my life, I’m alone, and I’m fucking terrified.

By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.



If you’re graduating from college this year, we apologize: Before being pushed off into the shaky job market, you’ll likely be forced to sit through a commencement speech filled with platitudes and vague advice, usually delivered by someone too old and famous to remember what it’s like to be young and broke. So we asked comedian Baratunde Thurston, porn actor James Deen, tech reporter Jenna Wortham, novelist Emma Straub, and Das Racist’s Victor Vazquez to tell us what 2012 graduates really need to know.

Read their real-talk advice for new graduates here.

The bruises go away, and so does how you hate, and so does the feeling that everything you receive from life is something you have earned.
Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything is Illuminated

Based on Dr. Seuss’s final book before his death, this is a story about life’s ups and downs, told by the people of Burning Man 2011.
