(We’re never too old for a spongebob reference).

Regardless of your unique answer to this question, Jon Acuff at Time – a man who has experienced the transition from student to professional – shares what’ll you’ll actually be doing after graduation:

  1. Working a first job that’ll have nothing to do with your major. Woo hoo!
  2. Filling out ridiculous amounts of paperwork from 401k enrollment to apartment applications.
  3. Accommodating sneaky student loans.
  4. Participating in endless learning. We’re talking podcasts, books and articles, every day.
  5. Enjoying a “40 hour” work week. Ha! Add a zero.

Next time you’re asked the dreaded question, now you can just pick from the list!

Congrats, grads!
