Girl’s Life After #College

Why say the obvious? It’s a world known fact that college life is the best phase of life.

Carefree, stress-free and fun filled days and that too in abundance. Lots of friends, least of budget and still the best of the moments and memories.

But life takes an unexpected turn after college life gets over. While in college, every girl seems to have lot of confidence and even bigger dreams and ambitions of being ‘big in life’ someday. But all this changes and that too in stages. So what are real and drastic changes that the girls face after completing the college?

Job Search

While they start searching for jobs, that confidence and dream of being big starts shaking. In college, girls get used to get attention but while out in the real world as a job aspirant, they get ignored a lot which they are not used to. This brings their confidence level down to a new low.


At this stage, girls really start thinking about what their professional life will be and how difficult its going to be an achiever among the crowd of professionals. Another realization is that they cannot go in groups like the good old college days. When going for an interview, there are no friends to be with her in transport or during the interview. So she has to manage on her own.

While desperately trying to impress the interviewer, girls also realise that college language which they were famous for is no longer considered as ‘cool’. fuck ya, nope, don giv a damn gets replaced with yes sir, No sir and I will take care of it sir.

First Job

After getting a call that you have got the job, the dreams and confidence are again at the highest level, just the way these used to be during college days. But things start looking very different the very first day in office. First realization is that there is no ‘fresher’s welcome’ like college, infact no one seems to be giving any attention. A new girl in office is as lost as a kid on his first day in a theme park.


Lots of questions start bombarding the mind and heart and liver and intestine and what not. Am I looking ok?/is my dress appropriate for the office?/should I just bump into everyone and introduce myself anyway?/how and when will I have my lunch and with whom etc. the list of such questions is endless.

When the seat/work station gets allotted, girl is surrounded by many others but no one actually talks to her. All are busy in their own world. Sitting in an office so quite for 8 hours becomes very difficult especially when the girls are used to college canteen gossip for hours. She also gets uncomfortable from the quality of work point of view. No one is asking her what new she can bring on the table and what new ideas she might have about the work. Office just wants her to act like a machine and keep following the traditional work blindly.



College mates and boyfriends are cool to hang out with because they are immature, pure and childish but innocent kinda guys and more importantly they have time, lots of it. But after joining office life, it’s not the case. The childish boyfriend seems irresponsible now. You feel change in you and hence you expect your partner to change too. If you get non-stop messages during office hours, you will get irritated because everyone sitting around you in office seem so formal and artificially so well behaved.

All of a sudden, the requirement of a cool guy changes into a requirement of a responsible man. And hang on, parents also play their part very well in this. ‘You have graduated, you have got the job, so next step should be obvious, you should settle down now’, does this sound familiar? Oh yes, it does. If you are in any Asian country, this is the usual sentence parents use for their kids post college.

In short, life in real world outside college is very different. It is dynamic yet boring, its routine yet interesting, its artificial yet reality of life. iChhori suggests that you go out there and learn as much as you can. Try, execute, fail and try again with passion. Keep your cool, build your confidence and conquer it!

Coming back to home our eyes always search for this person and we come up with the question “Where is MOM?” Imagining our life without her for only 5 minutes is no less than a horror movie. She is the most precious human being one could get and we often take her for granted. But when the time comes and we realize her importance, she becomes our past.

Even private offices give one day off but Mother is the one who gets no holiday. Still, she does not beseech for it because she never takes her work as a burden rather her love for us. One can grab all the knowledge from their experiences but the lessons given by a MOTHER are nowhere to find. One cannot learn those lessons in a class as no teacher is worth teaching them. She keeps everyone before her and teaches us how to value others selflessly.


There is only one person in this entire world who loves without T&C applied and that is our Mother. She plays the role of a mother, daughter, wife, sister and what comes in, flawlessly, but we somewhere do not do justice to her. When we know that someone is going to stay forever with us we start degrading the value of that person in our lives and this is the same thing we do with our mothers. She never demands anything from us but she really wants to be loved and get the same respect as any other member of the family. But don’t we think that she deserves all the happiness of this world, then why do we lack in giving one?


We can learn so many moral life lessons just by observing our Mother. Nobody can teach “how to be selfless, how to love unconditionally, how to respect your work irrespective of getting anything in return, not expecting anything and many more” better than our own MOTHER. She never gets anything for what she does but it has to be our responsibility to become a person she feels proud of.


Nobody is more connected to us than a mother as our connection starts before 9 months of coming into this world. We all have seen GOD in her disguise. So, after reading this article just call your mom and ask her how she’s doing, tell her how much you love her and how thankful you are to god for her existence. You have no idea how grateful she feels after that.
