You ruled the campus scene, and now it’s time to rule the world.

Graduating from college is a huge leap, and it launches you right into adulthood.

Whether you’ve got a job lined up or not, the reality is you need to clean up your act.

Most women worry about losing the fun and freedom their undergrad years granted them, but there are actually tons of reasons to look forward to putting your wild side to rest (at least on the weekdays).

Here’s why:

Your Bestfriend is Your Best Wing Woman

By Megan Mills |  Elite Daily ©

When you finally trade in your sweats for an LBD and make your way out of the apartment, you never leave for the night without one major accessory: your wing woman — more commonly known as your best friend.

Just like guys suit up their wingmen to help them score anything resembling a chick to take home, your wing woman is there to guide you through the drunken haze on which men you find acceptable to strike up a conversation with.

With the two of you being so close already, the position of wing woman becomes second nature. But, what automatically designates your best friend as your wing woman?

Party Girl To Professional: What It’s Like Having A Heel In Both Worlds

By Zara Barrie |  Elite Daily ©

I feel like people always talk about how they’re either blissfully dancing their lives away in the diamond-encrusted, champagne-fueled party girl lifestyle OR that they’re self-identifying EX-party girls whose current lives consist of nothing more than a comforting myriad of house plants, husbands and flat, sensible shoes (I might have thrown up a little in my mouth regarding the latter).

But what, dear WHAT about those of us girls who are amidst the awkward and painful transition out of the party girl lifestyle?

It’s like being stuck in acne-adorned adolescence all over again: “Not a girl, but not yet a woman.”

GAG me with a spoon gently, please.

I feel there is a surplus of Generation-Y girls who have been sorely misrepresented, widely ignored and entirely left out of the party girl conversation.

What about the girls who have one platform boot in the nightclub and one pointed kitten heel in the office?

The Toughest Part About Breaking Up Is Losing Your Best Friend

By Paul Hudson |  Elite Daily ©

I have this ongoing debate with myself on whether life is the most beautiful or most horrific state of existence in the universe. One could easily find an argument for both sides.

Life allows for pleasure, but it also allows for pain. It allows for happiness, but it also allows for suffering. It allows for greatness, but it also allows for insignificance. It can be both simple and complex, confusing, even maddening.

Going through life alone is possible in theory, but in practice, it’s only the sociopaths capable of living such secluded lives. Everybody else, we need other people in our lives to feel happy.

How many other people? I guess that’s really up to you… Just keep in mind that close and meaningful relationships take significant time to build.

Your relationship doesn’t necessarily need to be a romantic one, but let’s be honest; we want to have our cake and eat it. We don’t just want a friend to share our lives with; we want a lover, a partner.

Dear…

 It’s because I don’t know how to reach you that I’m posting this in public.

We haven’t talked in six weeks but I’ve seen you twice.

If you’re reading this right now, I’m proud to say I found myself again. I realized my mistakes, and so I had to leave the town again for a month. I had to grow, I had to think, I had to be alone…

I am not expecting you to come back to my life. I just want us to talk, properly, but I respect it if you still don’t want to.

I really want to let you know that I apologize. I miss you so much, nothing can compare, because I still love you.

I’m letting you go slowly… I used to try alot, but I’m getting tired.

I’m moving on, I know I am, because I’ve already accepted that we can never be back together.

You will always have a special place in my heart. I wish you all the best, I just want you to be happy…
