Adulting 101: Things You Should Know (Sean K Reynolds)

Note: This class is open to high school students only.

You’re getting ready to enter the world as an adult. There are things you can learn right now that’ll make being an adult easier for you and for the important and prominent people in your life (parents, siblings, guardians, new college roommates, significant others, and so on). Not only will this directly help your day-to-day living, it’ll show other people that you’re a capable and considerate person—not a goofball who is stumbling through life making awkward, insensitive, stinky, or even hurtful mistakes.

This Adulting class covers basic cooking skills, making friends in a new place, tips for job interviews, booking plane tickets, jump-starting a car, using a toolkit and power tools, setting boundaries with roommates, changing a flat tire, what to do when you get sick, filling out a basic tax form, dating, de-escalating personal conflicts, how credit cards work, and a whole lot more.

Some of those things sound really boring. They are really boring. But knowing how to do them means fewer arguments at home, more cash in your pocket, and not smelling like garbage, which I we can all agree are positive things.

About the instructor: I'm a professional game designer, trained chemist, amateur artist, decent cook, former resident advisor for a college dorm, jack-of-all-trades, and a very chatty extrovert. I've moved cross-country nine times, have accumulated a lot of life experience, and I want to give you a head start on knowing how to deal with life outside of high school.
