The transition from college life into to the real world can be brutal. Everyone wonders when you're going to actually use the degree you spent thousands of dollars on, people come out the woodwork to give you relationship advice and let's not even start on money because… what money? You can barely afford to buy a bagel. Whether you’re moving into your own place with a “dream job” or back crashing in your parents' basement, the shift from being a full-time student to a full-time adult isn't for the faint of heart.

We struggle to realize that there's so much we can no longer get away with (like wearing the same yoga pants to work every day). Luckily, we can take comfort in knowing that we’re not the first, nor the last to embark on the unmarked path of life after degrees are conferred. While pop culture may sometimes lead us astray, these 16 movies capture the quarter-life crisis perfectly. Thank goodness we're not out here roughing it alone!
