Yes, you can go to bed as late as you want, but you have to make decisions all the time. You have bills to pay and taxes to do. You need a place to live, and good people to live with, and you need a job. Then there is the government, crime, climate change and fake news. It’s enough to make you want to scream – WHY DID NOBODY TELL ME IT WOULD BE LIKE THIS? There is no roadmap that will take you through life without a few wrong turns, but there are a few tips and tricks that can make the journey easier. Adulting 101 will help you navigate the tricky terrain of adulthood. Jen Thorpe guides you through everything you need to know (including what you don’t yet know you need to know) from relationships, sex, work, health and money to how government and the media work.
