Adulting isn’t easy. A lot of basic life skills just aren’t taught anymore and we didn’t learn them from our parents either. So, what do we do about that? We teach ourselves. From cooking to sewing to first aid, we can learn these things ourselves. So, what should we learn first? Where do we find that information? How do we know it’s accurate?
That’s where I step in. I’m no expert, but I did learn a lot of basic skills (and even a few advanced skills) from my family and my college education. I’d like to help you learn these skills. I’m not sure of what you want to learn most, so I came up with a list of things I thought were useful in everyday life.
1. First Aid
From major to minor injuries, it’s nice to know how to patch a person up and what to do in a serious emergency.
2. Cooking A Decent Meal
Being able to feed yourself is crucial to life and it’s not as difficult as it seems.
5. How to Read Public Transit Schedules
6. How to Read Maps
Well, this goes along with reading public transit schedules. Since we have GPS, it’s hard to fathom life without it. However, if you ever lose your signal, your GPS won’t work. It’s helpful to keep a state map handy, but what do all those squiggly lines mean?
7. Vehicle Maintenance
If you have a car, there are things you can do without a mechanic to make sure your baby runs for as long as she can.
8. Troubleshooting Your Technology
From home to car to laundry, we can all agree that cleaning is one of those necessary evils in our lives. There are plenty of ways to make it easier on yourself and there are also hacks that can clean better than chemicals!
Let me know what you’d like to learn about and I’ll make a tutorial for it!
