More Places Are Adding Adulting Classes
UC-Berkley just added adulting classes to the curriculum, and more colleges are adding programs like that all the time. If you need a refresher, we've got adulting classes right here in Tyler too. But what do they teach?
Adulting classes usually teach how to cook, change a tire, manage time, fold sheets, and pay taxes, and they're usually tailored for Millennials.
But can anyone ever really master this adulting thing? Passing the course in college would be sweet, but then there's real life and sometimes that has a mind of its own. Add a crying baby to laundry and taxes, and adulting presents a real challenge.
The University of California Berkeley just announced it has an offering for an adulting class, and more colleges are adding programs like it all the time. It's probably more practical and useful than astrophysics, and it might be a great place to meet a mate that's also looking to master the art of adulthood. And if you get an easy A, it would be a big confidence boost for the rest of your life.
The Tyler Public Library offers adulting classes too, and anyone can take those each month. The library was inspired to begin the series "after noticing certain life skills were being taken for granted as common knowledge." They've covered topics so far including credit, voting, managing a checking account, and automotive repair. Those who pass the adulting course can move forward knowing that they DO know how to boil water, keep plants alive and assemble a great insurance policy.
Anyone can go check it out on the third Saturday of the month, and probably realize that life is never really figured out! And that exactly why the adulting class trend will continue.
