Content warning: Video includes some ableist language

Maybe you’re graduating this spring, maybe you’re not. Maybe you have no idea what’s next, maybe you have a plan, or maybe you’re in the middle of making your plan happen. Unless it carries you right through to retirement without shifting an inch (and if so, tell us how you did it, because that’s got to be wizardry), this video from vlogbrothers’ Hank Green is for you.

Transitions can be terrifying, and so can change. But here’s the thing: you’re not alone. We’ve all gone through it, or we’re all going through it, or we’re all about to go through it. We’ll all probably go through it a few times yet. So let Green’s words sink in. Life is scary, but we’re all in it together.
