Welcome to The Post College Dream.

IMG_1120I love to make people laugh. And I usually get myself into situations where the only thing left to do it laugh. As a 24 year old navigating the world of apartment living, grad school, working in a cube, and student loans, it can be tough to find the silver lining.

But there is hope and you’re not alone. In this blog I’ll share my experience and the lessons I learned working in a cubicle, being organized, living alone, dating, staying motivated, and keeping busy.

My name is Chelsey and I’m an Assistant Director of Annual Giving at a college in Upstate New York. I have an engineering degree, I’m getting my MBA, and I’m terrified of the question “what do you want to be when you grow up?”

While I don’t have many things figured out I know that I like to have fun, play sports that don’t require coordination, and structure my schedule so I can maximize time for friends and family.
