With the holiday season in full swing, one of the biggest questions a high schooler gets asked at awkward family gatherings is, “so, what do you plan to do once you graduate?” Whether it is your aunt you only see twice a year,  your mom getting on you for not planning ahead, or your cousin just trying to make small talk, the stress of the future can be overwhelming. The one thing that does seem to always help though, is seeing students that came before you doing what they love. They seem so happy (according to their instagram feeds), and you just can’t help but be a little jealous of their college life. Well her...
