College is arguably one of best times in life. You’re likely away from parental guidance. You meet some awesome people. You make some wild fashion choices. Live in a crappy apartment. Make some questionable decisions, but wouldn’t change a thing.
Once you graduate, that same lifestyle doesn’t translate into the “real world” and workforce. You have to act your age, dress nice, be more financially aware and take on additional responsibilities.
The new 2017 Hyundai Elantra is similar to that college-graduated self.
