Biggest Post Grad Fantasy

By Shikole Struber

I've had a lot of fantasies in my life. Some of them I've fulfilled, some are too far out there to ever make a reality, few of which I'm willing to share here. My absolute biggest fantasy so far as a post grad, though, has got to be running away.

I know, it sounds like I'm an angst filled thirteen year old who hates her mother and thinks she can hitch hike to the next town and be happy. But I'm serious. My biggest fantasy is to just get in my car and drive. I don't want to tell anyone where I'm going. I don't want my cell phone so I can't be reached. I don't want to put in notice at work or worry about being late.

Think about it. Complete freedom from all responsibility. Except for maybe car insurance payments so I can get around. Responsibility is driving me insane. All I want to do is run away. Even if it's just for a week I think I'd be happy.

What is your biggest post grad fantasy?


  1. Winning the lottery, hands down. Even if it was just a small jackpot, just enough to pay off my student loans, it would be an absolute game changer. What couldn't we do if money were no object?

  2. I've totally had the running away fantasy. Sometimes when I'm driving to or from work I think, "What if I just kept going?" I'll probably never do it but I always dream about it.
