So what is ADLT 101?! And what exactly is “adulting”?

Well Adulting this new term us millennials have created (we’re good for creating words and phrases huh? Fleek, Bae, Turn up etc.)

Millennial Speak

No wonder people always have us misunderstood all the time. We literally speak a different language.

Adulting: describes acting like an adult or engaging in activities usually associated with adulthood—often responsible or boring tasks…

But yea so this whole concept of ‘Adulting’ really took me back.

About 2 years ago I left the safety net that is school and dived head first into the real world and soon after that I had a sobering realization.

Being an adult is hard!

There are bills, responsibilities, early mornings, debt, and expectations!!

adulting-is-hard

On top of that it felt like everyone else had it together but me. Like I was watching all my friends and peers get a hang of this new concept and somehow I was lagging terribly behind still trying to figure out life.

I started to wonder…

Am I the only one feeling like this? Is it just me? Why can’t I seem to get myself together?

The more I actually started talking about these things with other people the more I started to realize… maybe it isn’t just me. Maybe this is something a lot of people are going through.

ADLT 101 is the course for the stuff they didn’t teach you in school.

Let’s be real we learn a bunch of useless information in school. I remember the day they lost me in math class when they introduced those imaginary numbers… fake numbers?!
im-out

But its funny how there’s such a lack of practical information floating around out there about how to survive life after school despite having all these fancy degrees

As much as these things cost you would think we would have learned the secret to life in school, let alone how to do seemly simple things like… file our taxes for example.

After a while, I started to get a better grip on this whole ‘adulting’ thing

I was able to pay off all my debt, travel around the world, and start my own business all within 18 months of graduating… things we’re beginning to look up

I’m just here to share some of the things I’ve learned so far along the way. I’m no expert by any means, I don’t think anyone is, but I just want to help where I can.

So ADLT 101 is for us! For everyone who feels like they missed the course that was suppose teach them how to become a responsible functional adult.

Remember you’re not alone. We’re all going through it and we’re gonna make it together!

Welcome to ADLT 101!
