Graduated. Now what?

6 years ago
Graduated high school - well, technically. I took the last of my finals and AP exams yesterday. All I still have to do is walk at graduation and get handed my diploma in ~10 days.

What now? This question is mostly addressed to the older members of the site: What did you do after your high school graduation?

Get a job, or go to college if you want a degree and a huge debt, the choice is yours.

(Or do well in high school, get a scholarship, go to MIT, get a a job at Raytheon)

Contemplate the meaninglessness of existence. I went to university after graduating high school.

Move out. Now. You'll thank me later, if your family's 1/8 as psychotic as mine.

Even without psychotic parents, moving out is a great plan.

Yes, and so is starting out your college career at a 2-year university, so you'll have excess financial aid you can invest in mutual funds to pay for your Master's degree.

According to Ford he already lives alone in New Vegas and comfortably supports himself by taking online quizzes or something.

I say he keeps doing that since it seems to be working so far.

Short Term: Drug-filled drinking binge as you party.

Long Term: Boring shit like College and Jobs.

Don't drink and drive!  Then, while you're still recovering, think about where you want to be in ten years and start planning the best way to get there and then go for it.  After that ... either you've "made it" and can relax, or you haven't...

Me?  I worked and worked and worked and worked and...  Now that I can afford to go to college without going into debt, I just don't have the time.  ...and what money I don't reinvest, I end up spending on "fun stuff" — mostly travel and entertainment.  Of course, my path isn't for the "faint of heart".  Pulling myself up by the bootstraps and clawing my way back has been a constant theme for me.  ...and I wouldn't trade places with anyone!

Take a few years to just be you, then go to college.

I worked for a while, then went to college.

Depends what you want to do. I was told I had to go to college, so I did so. Then once I finished I went to uni.

Moving out is probably the best choice you can ever make though.

Go to college to learn how to enjoy leftovers.

Even if they aren't your mom's.

"Oh, this game's no fun. The first 18 levels are easy then mom and dad stop caring."

Take these wise words of Jontron to heart, young Ford.

Definitely try to get your foot into the door of whatever you're attempting to major in (or what you want to do in life). Even if you don't know what that is yet, you've still got another 2 years to figure it out.

If not, than just go marry yourself into a rich white family. Should be set for life until the inevitable fallout between your step-brother, your aunt, and the kooky uncle on who gets to keep the majority of the inheritance.

You need to think ahead. Marrying into a rich minority family is the future-safe plan.

I looked into colleges, to sum it up. But I took my time. You shouldn't rush into anything like that, but I personally wouldn't delay it too much.

Yeah go to college. Don't take forever to find which one you want to go to. Make some money. Live your LIFE. Take advantage, be      smart about it. Then, if you want, make a family. ^_^ Lol.

Graduated. Now what?

I'm pretty sure you HAVE to be smart about it, it's college.

Yeah, i know mason. Lol. Just felt like the need to say it. ^_^

My advice is, that you should follow your dreams and adopt a unicorn. But I haven't even graduated middle school, so I really have no idea what I am even doing on this thread!

Rather hard if you're a male.

Graduated. Now what?

yeah. but i do know a couple people who got it off easy just because of their looks. The women would work and clean, and the good looking man just sat around.

Graduated. Now what?

Well, yeah. That sort of thing can go either way. Marrying someone who has low enough self esteem to think they're beneath you and need to work to keep you is an easy way to get a free ride. Of course, it makes you a horrible leech of a human being and the world ought to regard you as lower than scum for taking advantage of someone suffering from poor self image, but still, it's not terribly uncommon. (Got a bit dark there, sorry. xD)
