Valentine's nostalgia

For your daily dose of children krumping, check out my new favorite video from Gym Class Heroes called "Cupid's Chokehold." Look for the cameo from Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy.

PEACHTREE TAVERN

This Buckhead complex also houses Moondogs and Hole in the Wall, and is the weekend hot spot for frat boys and sorority chicks. If your wardrobe consists of popped collars and Croakies you might already be a regular. Moondogs has a down-and-dirty dance floor equipped with a stripper pole, so you know where the afterparty's at. 3179 Peachtree Road. 404-842-1700. www.peachtreetavern.com.

AZUL AND THE BRICK STORE PUB

If you dream of moving to Manhattan's Lower East Side, mix your American Apparel gear with your thrift-store finds and think Pabst Blue Ribbon is delish, the Decatur Social Club hosts Friday-night parties just for you. Plenty of world-famous DJs stop by to play sets, and when emo bands come to Atlanta, Azul is the hangout. It doesn't start bumpin' until midnight, though, so go for some early drinks at the Brick Store Pub down the block, where the beer list is long (pages and pages long), the snack food is yummy and the waitstaff is hot (really, really hot). Azul: 141 Sycamore St. 404-377-3311. www.ragingburrito.com/azul.htm. The Brick Store Pub: 404-687-0990. 125 E. Court Square, Decatur. www.brickstorepub.com.

THE VELVET ROOM

You've heard about the club in "Welcome to Atlanta," and with its new location off I-285 on Chamblee-Tucker Road, the Velvet Room is still "where the playas play." Grown and Sexy Fridays brings every ATL video vixen look-alike to the club, and Q100-FM's (100.5) Saturday Night Live parties spin some great Top 40 mashups. 3358 Chamblee-Tucker Road. 404-874-4460. www.velvetatl.com.

FAMOUS PUB

For pool and darts, this popular Emory hangout is the perfect laid-back sports bar. The staff is superfriendly and the bar serves up some pretty decent chow. 2947 N. Druid Hills Road. 404-633-3555. www.famouspubsports.com.

THE EARL AND THE GRAVEYARD

Besides having the best bar food in town (you'll want a burger), East Atlanta's the Earl also hosts some of the best in local and national rock 'n' roll. When you're done checking out the Earl, the Graveyard has huge comfy booths and is a great spot to wind down the night. The Earl: 488 Flat Shoals Ave. 404-522-3950. www.badearl.com. Graveyard Tavern: 1245 Glenwood Ave. 404-622-8686. www.graveyardtavern.com.

Once a year, Atlanta's premier art museum stays open late for college students to mix and mingle artsy-fartsy-style. It's a great chance to meet kids from other Atlanta colleges because it's always super packed. So keep your calendars open; this school year, college night will occur Feb. 9. In the meantime, co-eds can check out world-class exhibits for the $12 student rate, or by buying a $35 annual student membership. Sun., noon-5 p.m.; Tues.-Wed. and Fri.-Sat., 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; Thurs., 10 a.m.-8 p.m. 1280 Peachtree St. 404-733-4400. www.high.org.

MARTA UNIVERSITY PASS PROGRAM

Most Atlanta universities don't allow students to have cars. But even if you have a car in the ATL, sometimes you just don't want to deal with all the traffic. Lucky for you, MARTA stops at the mall (Lenox Square), the airport and a bunch of other places. Students can buy unlimited monthly bus and rail passes for $40. 404-848-5000. www.itsmarta.com.

BRAVES GAMES

Living in the A wouldn't be complete without taking in a Braves game at Turner Field. Tickets are buy-one-get-one-free with a student ID — cheaper than the stadium's itty-bitty cups of beer. 755 Hank Aaron Drive. 770-522-7630. atlanta.braves.mlb.com.

FOX THEATRE

Big-name acts and traveling Broadway shows are always stopping by the Fox, and most performances offer discounts to students. West Side Story is the next big musical to come to town, hitting the stage Aug. 21-26, and STOMP runs Sept. 18-23. 660 Peachtree St. 404-881-2100. www.foxtheatre.org.

ZOO ATLANTA

If you need time off from the animals living in your dorm, check out Zoo Atlanta. A baby panda and new baby giraffe are recent additions to the menagerie. Entry to the animal house costs students with IDs $13.99. The Zoo Atlanta website also has a sweet deal on a combo Zoo Atlanta/Georgia Aquarium ticket for $35, which is great because the Aquarium doesn't offer regular student discounts. Mon.-Fri., 9:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m.; Sat.-Sun., 9:30 a.m.-6:30 p.m. 800 Cherokee Ave. 404-624-5600. www.zooatlanta.org.

Once a year, Atlanta's premier art museum stays open late for college students to mix and mingle artsy-fartsy-style. It's a great chance to meet kids from other Atlanta colleges because it's always super packed. So keep your calendars open; this school year, college night will occur Feb. 9. In the meantime, co-eds can check out world-class exhibits for the $12 student rate, or by buying a $35 annual student membership. Sun., noon-5 p.m.; Tues.-Wed. and Fri.-Sat., 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; Thurs., 10 a.m.-8 p.m. 1280 Peachtree St. 404-733-4400. www.high.org.

MARTA UNIVERSITY PASS PROGRAM

Most Atlanta universities don't allow students to have cars. But even if you have a car in the ATL, sometimes you just don't want to deal with all the traffic. Lucky for you, MARTA stops at the mall (Lenox Square), the airport and a bunch of other places. Students can buy unlimited monthly bus and rail passes for $40. 404-848-5000. www.itsmarta.com.

BRAVES GAMES

Living in the A wouldn't be complete without taking in a Braves game at Turner Field. Tickets are buy-one-get-one-free with a student ID — cheaper than the stadium's itty-bitty cups of beer. 755 Hank Aaron Drive. 770-522-7630. atlanta.braves.mlb.com.

FOX THEATRE

Big-name acts and traveling Broadway shows are always stopping by the Fox, and most performances offer discounts to students. West Side Story is the next big musical to come to town, hitting the stage Aug. 21-26, and STOMP runs Sept. 18-23. 660 Peachtree St. 404-881-2100. www.foxtheatre.org.

ZOO ATLANTA

If you need time off from the animals living in your dorm, check out Zoo Atlanta. A baby panda and new baby giraffe are recent additions to the menagerie. Entry to the animal house costs students with IDs $13.99. The Zoo Atlanta website also has a sweet deal on a combo Zoo Atlanta/Georgia Aquarium ticket for $35, which is great because the Aquarium doesn't offer regular student discounts. Mon.-Fri., 9:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m.; Sat.-Sun., 9:30 a.m.-6:30 p.m. 800 Cherokee Ave. 404-624-5600. www.zooatlanta.org.

  string(3553) "A good friend of mine recently began her dream job working at the glamorous TimeWarner building in Manhattan. "So this is it," she told me on the phone after her first day. "This is what I'll be doing for the rest of my life."

It's not that she wasn't thrilled to be living in the Big City (although what she was paying for rent could have easily allowed her to live in a posh loft here in Atlanta) or that she wasn't happy with her new job. "I just miss you girls," she cried, referring to the group of gal pals we had hung around with since our very first month of college four years ago.

The months after graduation are obviously difficult, and in more ways than one. Even for freshly employed graduates like my friend, the transition from the quad to the real world is nerve-racking. Let's face it: The past 20 or so years were all pretty much preplanned, and the future seems to be all about improvisation. But there's no need to be bummed out; just because you might be committing yourself to a 9-to-5 doesn't mean all the fun is going to disappear from your life. Sure, college was awesome, but there's no reason the professional life can't be just as great.

For starters, brush up on that résumé. You're probably going to spend the next few months heading to job interviews, and the better the résumé looks, the fewer of those interviews you'll have to endure. You might not land your dream job right off the bat, but remember: You are a hot commodity. You'll be relieved when you get that first job offer, but make sure it's the right decision before settling. The transition into postgrad life will be that much easier if you like where you work and the people you work with.

Don't let it get you down when your friends start packing up their stuff and moving all around the country. Consider their new destinations excellent future vacation locales. My friends and I started a daily e-mail chain, filling each other in on what's going on in our lives and asking each other questions about postgrad life like what health-care plan I should choose or how to negotiate a salary. Just because the posse is more spread out now doesn't mean the support system you've depended on for the last four years is suddenly lost; it's just up to you to keep in touch now.

Think of it as networking practice.

Moving out of the dorms or your old apartment and into new digs in a new city can be terrifying. Don't just cross your fingers and hope the apartment you found on Craigslist is in a good neighborhood in your new and unfamiliar city. Do your homework. You know how you spend hours stalking your grade-school crushes on Facebook and MySpace; consider using those sites to meet people in your new city. A recent grad I know moved out to California and was terrified because she didn't know a soul, but a little clicking around Facebook showed her that quite a few people she went to high school with and more than a few "friends of friends" lived in the area.

The weirdest part of postgrad life is that you probably spent most of college admiring how grown-up you were. I know I did. Now, instead of just acting grown-up, you have to actually be a grown-up. But don't worry; you're still young enough to take chances and do something wild, like move to a new city and make a whole new group of friends. Even though instability is just as much a part of graduation as the cap and gown, you've learned before how to be successful in new and scary environments – remember when you were just a little frosh?

"I'm really interested in U.S./Latin America relations and public policy, and I knew I would enjoy working at the Federal Reserve a lot more than anywhere else," Graefe says.

Her internship at Atlanta's branch of the Federal Reserve Bank, where she has worked since her sophomore year, demonstrated to her how she could create that positive change through economics. She focused her work on helping research economists with a wide range of assignments from organizing research papers and presentations to data analysis.

"The people I've worked with have really shown me what I could help accomplish through a career in economics," she says.

Graefe emphasizes the importance of getting an internship in college, and not simply because it looks good on your résumé: "The experience was invaluable to me because it helped me decide what I would be interested in doing in the future."

Graefe looks forward to starting her new job in August as an economic analyst for the bank's Latin America Research Group. "I was really hoping I would stay in Atlanta and continue working there, and I was thrilled when they made me an offer," Graefe says.

After graduating second in her class and magna cum laude from Agnes Scott College with a degree in economics last May, Graefe wanted to snag a job she knew would make a real difference, not just a gig to pay the bills.

"I'm really interested in U.S./Latin America relations and public policy, and I knew I would enjoy working at the Federal Reserve a lot more than anywhere else," Graefe says.

Her internship at Atlanta's branch of the Federal Reserve Bank, where she has worked since her sophomore year, demonstrated to her how she could create that positive change through economics. She focused her work on helping research economists with a wide range of assignments from organizing research papers and presentations to data analysis.

"The people I've worked with have really shown me what I could help accomplish through a career in economics," she says.

Graefe emphasizes the importance of getting an internship in college, and not simply because it looks good on your résumé: "The experience was invaluable to me because it helped me decide what I would be interested in doing in the future."

Graefe looks forward to starting her new job in August as an economic analyst for the bank's Latin America Research Group. "I was really hoping I would stay in Atlanta and continue working there, and I was thrilled when they made me an offer," Graefe says.

But on Sunday nights, while those ridiculous plaid shorts are still strutting around, Va-Hi turns into a serious fiesta.

Looking to celebrate Memorial Day weekend with some distinctly summery beverages, my bestie and I decide to start the night out at Sala, a little ways down from the main epicenter of Va-Hi. Sala is the place to go with your gal pals before heading out to the bars – all the drinks are delicious, especially the mojitos and margaritas. The pomegranate-and-mango margaritas are favorites – not too sweet and not too fruity. The tapas are yummy, too – the taquitos de pato, adobado-rubbed, slow-roasted duck in a crispy corn tortilla with guacamole is the perfect munchie, and you'll need to eat a little something if you're going to be drinking all that tequila. Luckily we saved room for dessert, splitting the limon quemado, a Mexican lime crème brulee.

After some scrumptious pregaming, we decide to head toward the real fiesta down the block at Noche. The Sunday night special is $1 Dos Equis, and apparently every investment banker/former frat boy in the A knows this. The crowd at Noche is spilling out into the street, and as we work our way inside, we're met with a wall of hot-and-sweaty Va-Highlanders. Since it's hard to even see the bar, we make our way as far into the restaurant as possible and suddenly find ourselves at the hostess stand, a small oasis in a sea of pushy partyers. Danielle, the supersweet but more than slightly stressed hostess, hands us a drink menu, and we scan the list of margaritas. Having finally decided on the classic Noche Margaritas, we try and make our way up to the bar, but when Danielle sees us struggling to get the bartender's attention, she offers to put in our order for us – a margarita savior!

We take our drinks onto the patio that connects Fontaine's and Noche, a little left of center of the actual party, but at least we won't have our delicious 'ritas spilt all over the place. When I head to the bar to pick up another round, I manage to stand directly behind a lucky couple who has finagled a pair of barstools, and they let me squeeze in to get to the bar.

"I'm just happy you're not trying to steal my boyfriend," the girl says, explaining that even if this place looks to be infested with fratties, ladies outnumber the boys two to one. "They're like sharks!"

Later in the noche when we close our tab (it takes at least 15 minutes to even get the bartender's attention – I know they're busy, but it takes so long I'm worried he thinks I have the plague) it comes to just more than 20 bucks – not bad for two rounds each of yummy margaritas split between two chicas."
