Adulting ain’t easy. And it seems to happen so fast: you graduate college (or grad school, in my case) and suddenly, boom, you’re not a student anymore and you have to be a real adult. And now there’s bills and a 9-5 and other payments and surprise expenses and all kinds of other things.
The struggle is so real.
I’m certainly no expert at adulting–is anyone, really?–but I have learned some valuable lessons in my adult life. The struggle will always be there, but there are some things to remember that make adult life a little easier.
