A primer functions as a preparatory coat before applying a finish. Let this page serve as your base for TAoA that will lead you in the direction you need for those finishing touches. This primer is a guide to important pages and meaningful posts. Here you will also find the reason this site was developed.
As someone who currently works in the field of higher education I regularly interact with young adults. These individuals are trying to navigate the shallows of adulting with limited experience and skills to lead them to success.
One key theme keeps popping up – the general lack of basic life skills. I am not talking about understanding global economics…I mean things like how to pump your own gas, book a doctor’s appointment, or take public transportation.
TAoA is my way to give back by paying it forward for all those individuals who gave me tips along the way. The people who lifted me up when I have fallen. The ones who pointed out a clear path when my sight was clouded.
If Adulting was Goliath then I want this website to represent David’s Sling. A tool to conquer difficult situations. An electronic database of useful information for your adult life.
First, Know You Are Not Alone
The fact that there is a whole school dedicated to adulting showcases the struggle individuals are facing today. We all deal with difficulties in the transition. Going from a lifestyle in which someone else was overall responsible for you, to one in which you are making the important decisions, is no easy task.
In my spiel about how adulting is all an act, I cover the fact that we are all putting on a performance.
We coexist on this stage of life and each and everyone of us are doing our best even, if it is just an act.
