I’ve had a pretty normal life. I did well in school, went to college, and now work a 9-5 job.
Being an Adult is Hard
I was surprised to find that the adjustment to working full time and being a full-grown adult was more difficult than I expected. No one was telling me what to do with my life anymore. There were no more expectations, no way that I could prove I was doing well with straight A’s.
Like any good millennial, I turned to the Internet to find out how to make friends, manage my money, live with roommates, and do other adult things I didn’t have to deal with before. There was some stuff out there, but none felt truly relevant to me. I didn’t feel like anyone really got what it felt like to be in my position.
I figured it was odd, because I know I’m not the only one who felt this way after entering the “adult world.” Many others told me they felt the same way I did, and they wished there was a required class they would have had to take to learn all the things they were “supposed to know.”
Figuring Things Out
After a while, a lot of trial and error, and life not feeling quite right sometimes, I finally started to feel like I was getting things figured out. People my age started asking advice from me, like how bank accounts work and how long pasta lasts in the fridge. Some even told me I should start a blog to share my wisdom.
Well, here I am. Starting a blog to share my “wisdom.” I have some things sort of figured out, mostly because I have been lucky enough to learn from my parents, who are really good at a lot of adult things. But there is a lot I don’t have figured out yet, and a lot I still want to learn.
I want to share everything I learn with you, because none of us all have it figured out. I decided on “A Plus Adulthood” because I wanted you all to know you can get an A+ in life, and I wanted to prove to myself I could, too (sorry, my try hard is showing.). In A+ Adulthood, I’ll learn with you all the practical “adult” things we all want to know, and try to teach them in the most entertaining way possible. Hopefully, this site will let you know you’re not alone and that there are things you can do to improve your life more than you ever thought possible.
Here’s an embarrassing photo of me breaking stuff in the middle of the street after moving out of my first (awful) adulthood house for your enjoyment:
Feel free to write me any time about anything. Recommend a blog post you’d like to see, ask a question, or tell me I’m getting an F minus at life. Whatever you say, I’ll read it and be glad you care enough to talk to me. I might be a little upset if you’re mean…but don’t let that stop you.
