Thanks to the power of the Internet, memes, and social media, we're sure you've heard the term "adulting" before. If not Urban Dictionary can provide a couple concise definitions:

  • To do grown up things and hold responsibilities such as, a 9-5 job, a mortgage/rent, a car payment, or anything else that makes one think of grown ups.
  • Being a responsible adult. Used by immature 20-somethings who are proud of themselves for paying a bill.

With that clarification in mind, are you still trying to figure out how to get a read on your credit score? Can you confidently define the term "401K?" Do you know how to fold a fitted sheet? If you answered no to these questions, then listen up, we have found your solution: The Adulting School.
