Posted On January 22, 2019

Well, this won’t help combat the millennial stereotype: There apparently is now such a thing as “adulting classes.” According to CBS News, the classes teach life skills like cooking, sewing, budgeting and time management — you know, those things most of us learned from our parents or through our own trial and error. I can see the memes now: “What do these things have in common?” in all-caps above pictures of a cassette tape, a rotary phone and a frying pan. “Millennials don’t know what they are.” Before we laugh too loudly, however, let’s remember that it’s the Baby Boomer… Read More

Posted On January 15, 2019
