‘Adulting School’ Is A Real Option If You Have No Clue What You’re Doing

Adulting School

When I heard about Yellowbrick, the trauma center for millennials who can’t adjust to life in the real world, I thought I’d seen it all. Surely our generation couldn’t get a worse reputation if we tried, right? Wrong. Apparently, this trauma center isn’t enough, and millennials now need help “adulting,” so, of course, one bright mind capitalized on this and there’s now an “adulting school” you can actually enroll in.

If you find yourself in Portland, Maine, you can enroll in their newly founded Adulting School, where you can learn the things that the rest of us had to learn from living in the real world.

Don’t worry, it’s not scary – you’ll still be pampered with the upper-middle class luxuries you’re used to like craft beer and specialty desserts. While you snack on lunch prepared in a food truck, you’ll learn how to take care of yourself by showing up to appointments on time and creating – and sticking to – a budget. For $30 a class, you’ll be on your way to true adulthood in no time!

Of course, if you really want to ‘adult’ like a pro, you’ll have to purchase add-ons, like happy hour classes that teach you how to network, so if you want to spend $30 to “learn” how to talk to people at a bar, by all means, enroll away. Between informing millennials about the necessity of side hustles and teaching them how to pay their credit card bills (unfortunately, this is actually part of the course), by enrolling in Adulting School, you’ll be able to pay someone to learn things you quite honestly should be able to figure out on your own.

If you have the spare funds to spend on these classes, you’re probably doing okay, but that’s not cool enough to put on Instagram, so you should probably show up anyway – at least for the likes.
