Learning to Adult

Who I be? Good Hello. My name is Taeler Kallmerten. I’m a student, a blogger, a coffee carnosaur and an amateur adult. What do I mean by amateur adult? I mean like most young adults, who have made the move out of the parental’s housing unit, I am incredibly bad at doing adult-like-things. Hence, the term Adulting was born.

Urban Dictionary defines the term: to do grown up things and hold responsibilities such as, a 9-5 job, a mortgage/rent, a car payment, or anything else that makes one think of grown ups (Urban Dictionary).

As human nature goes I learned how to deal with stress and anxiety. And how I deal is through two things: humor and writing.
