Welcome to Adulting Crash Course!

A no-nonsense website for everything you wish you learned in school but didn’t and now have to deal with as an adult.

Let’s be honest: we are all faking it.  All of us.  The thirty-somethings.  Probably the forty-somethings.  Definitely the twenty-somethings.  Even if you feel lost, trust me: you are good at something adulty.  Maybe you workout consistently, or are a fantastic cook, or are one of the few people who actually knows how to fold a fitted sheet.

But I’m sure you struggle with something.

Maybe you have a retirement account but eat Chinese take-out 3 days a week.  Maybe you get up at 5:00 am every day and workout but leave all your laundry in the dryer for days (or get it from the dryer but take it to your token laundry chair for days… or weeks).  Maybe you know how to make a roast chicken but have no idea how to get health insurance on your own.

This website is for you: a collection of straightforward adulting tips ranging from personal finance to how to make a doctor’s appointment.
