It’s finally spring!!! There’s one thing that comes to mind when coming up on this time of the year. Yes, we’re talking about graduation. Whether you or someone you know is graduating from college or high school this year then you have come to the right place! Graduating is a huge deal and can be the time of your life, but it can also be the onset to one of the most stressful times of your life. The realization sets in when you look into your bank account and see you have become the classic broke college student. It’s now time to start looking for a serious job. That summer job life-guarding at the local pool just isn’t gonna cut it anymore. Let’s be realistic here, the likelihood of landing that dream job right after graduation is slim to none. According to Money Magazine it takes on average 3 to 9 months to land a job. There is one thing that will help relieve some of that stress. Come graduation day, you are lucky enough to get that $200 check from grandma! Now we are gonna show you how to use this gift wisely to make your post-grad job hunting days a lot less stressful and even have some leftover cash!
The first step to a stress-free graduation is to go out with your best buddies and celebrate with a few beers. If you really want to make that money last then head out to your favorite dollar beers hideout. Make sure you and your friends only get bottled beer and save the caps (this will come in handy later on). Be safe and don’t overdo it! You are gonna need that energy for tomorrow — packing up the car and traveling back home!
Step number two. Okay, so you didn’t take the advice of not overdoing it last night. The hangover sets in and now you have to make the long haul home on a bright sunny day and your eyes and head are not very happy about it. No problem! We have a solution for that. It’s time for a fresh new pair of shades to protect those eyeballs. Not just any pair of sunglasses, a pair of Zoni Wear Sunglasses. These don’t only look rad but they perform even better! These guys make their shades from eco-friendly and sustainable bamboo. Completely handcrafted means that each and every pair is unique. The best part about these sunglasses are that every pair is made with polarized lenses. That means the bright, reflective sun will no longer burn your eyes. Stand out from the crowd with a pair of Zoni Wear Sunglasses.
After arriving back home it is time to move in. Filling your walls with posters like a dorm room may need to be left at school. Here’s a cool and unique idea to spruce up those blank walls. The Beer Cap Trap is the perfect solution. This is where all those beer bottle caps come in handy. Every Beer Cap Trap is laser cut from birch plywood. These will allow you to hold a variety of your favorite bottle caps. Choose from all 50 United States, as well as many different countries, or shapes and hang it up on your wall. When feeling stressed out just look at your Beer Cap Trap and remember all those good times and stories behind each beer cap.
Looking for that job of your dreams is never an easy task. This next tip will certainly help you relieve that stress after a long day of job searching and interviews. There’s nothing more relaxing than smoking a fine cigar at the end of the day. A good quality cigar doesn’t necessarily have to come with a high cost. Grab yourself the Everyday Sticks 20 Cigar Sampler. At $2 a stick, you really can’t go wrong. These cigars have a surprisingly great sweet taste and serve as an excellent daily cigar. To keep those bad boys fresh The Chalet 25-50 cigar humidor will do the trick and at a small price of $21. To complete this list the only thing you need is a nice lighter and a cigar punch. Why buy both separately when you can save some cash by grabbing the Triple Play Triple Torch Lighter & Punch Cutter for only $9! This is a great package for any beginner or veteran cigar smoker on a budget.
Living the post-graduate life doesn’t have to be all that stressful. That $200 check will surely get you on your way and will still leave you with $20 to spare! Now that you have some tips to help you out on your voyage to landing that perfect job, grab a cigar and start living that stress-free life!How to be a Stress Free College Grad. by Ted Esposito
