How to Adult: A Workshop
I'm a big fan of Bo-Jack Horseman and the character that I connect with most is Vincent Adultman. Most see him as an average guy with a love for business transactions. To Princess Carolyn, he's more of a man than any of her past boyfriends (biped or otherwise). But Bo-Jack sees him for what he really is: three children stacked on top of each other under a trench coat.
Vincent Adultman represents all the awkwardness of transitioning out of college and into the "real world." It's tough to stay balanced and move forward (or at all). You have to watch everything you say so that people don't catch on. You pretend to care about "adult things" because that's what adults do. You have to use a broom for a hand. It's exhausting.
My guess is that it doesn't have to be this hard.
We can create our 20's from scratch. They can be authentic, playful, and powerful. It's our life and we get to choose how this goes.
In this workshop you will:
- Create your life in an authentic way and create some goals that you genuinely care about.
- Figure out what you really want. Like, really really want.
- Decide what being an adult means to YOU! - not your family, or society, or television, or anyone that told you to enjoy your youth because one day it will be over. They don't get a vote here.
- Stop being weird about doing what you love. And maybe just start doing it? Maybe?
- Take back the power over your student loans.
- Bring some effin' fun back into your life!
- Connect with other current college students and recent grads and build a strong community of people to support you along the way. (I swear, you're not the only one that feels like this.)
