College is a pretty big deal to most people. For many, it is the next step after high school. I was one of those people. I was in school for 16 years of my life. I have a fancy piece of paper that says I have a bachelors degree and I have two alma matters. However, there are many serious real life issues that come up that I was not taught to handle so for that, thanks 16 years of schooling for not teaching me some very important things!
1. money management. seriously. college did not teach me how to pass up a cute kate spade bag display in a window, a monogrammed..anything.. or a new dress for an upcoming holiday.
2. how to buy a house. since J and I are on the path of making this a forever thing, we have been going back and forth about buying over renting. in the end, buying just makes so much more sense. granted, we will not be doing this until after our wedding but, just googling different options/phrases/banks/etc. is a headache in itself! why couldn't there be a house buying 101 class in college? I mean it is a pretty important thing.
3. actually, forget a house buying class. there should have just been an adulting 101 class. I hate adulting and many days, I just can not even adult. ummmm..Sarah, what is 'adulting'? you may be asking. well, it is literally doing anything that a 'normal' adult would do. like I go over to my moms a lot and she is always doing laundry or having people over doing this or that or fixing something and I am just sitting there like...wtf. I am notorious for putting laundry in the washer and I have mastered switching it to the dryer but then i run the dryer 2, 3...maybe even 5 times before taking it out then I have to fold it....
5. literally e v e r y t h i n g pertaining to my car. i am a complete damsel in distress when it comes to changing my oil, changing a tire, refilling washer fluid...everything. thank the lord for John, the dealership, my daddy and AAA!
