Abstract:

"Adult" isn't a noun; it's a verb. Just because you don't feel like an adult doesn't mean you can't act like one. And it all begins with this funny, wise, and useful book. Based on Kelly Williams Brown's popular blog, ADULTING makes the scary, confusing "real world" approachable, manageable - and even conquerable. This guide will help you navigate the stormy Sea of Adulthood so that you may find safe harbor in Not Running Out of Toilet Paper Bay. Along the way you will learn: What to check when renting a new apartment - Not just the nearby bars, but the faucets and stove, among other things. When a busy person can find time to learn more about the world - It involves the intersection of NPR and hair-straightening. How to avoid hooking up with anyone in your office - Imagine your coworkers having plastic, featureless doll crotches. It helps. -- from back cover.
