Life as a college grad who is currently "between jobs" is especially thrilling. 

During normal business hours, you're most likely watching Twin Peaks then writing cover letters at two in the morning. Glassdoor and Linkedin are your top visited sites. You find yourself Googling things such as "resume power words" and "how to move to Spain at 22 with no real income". The phrase "I'd like to add you to my professional network" haunts your dreams. And just like when you were in college, you are still not getting the recommended 7 hours of sleep!

Here are the tunes getting me through this period of adulthood stalemate...

Planet Junior by The Babe Rainbow ↬ for spacing out 
Tell Me (What's On Your Mind) by Allah Las ↬ for your classic summer anthem

  1. Thank you for this. Also a college grad "in between jobs" and man, every single one of the things you mentioned are too true. Good luck with your job hunt! It's not easy or fun, but it'll be worth it!
