How to Adult

A guide to not being a trash human, and other life lessons

Anna Blackie

Shit you should know, but probably don’t.

Do you know your shiraz from your merlot?
Are you craving gravy but don’t know where your parents conjured this magical sauce from?
Are you terrified of your impending adult responsibility?

From doing your taxes to changing a tyre, asking for a raise to mastering the art of avocado preparation – this is the ultimate guide to everything a fully functioning adult should know to survive in the grown-up world.
Packed with life advice learned from an actual hopeless millennial’s consistent failure, humiliation and awkward conversations, this book will keep you from starvation, make folding fitted sheets a reality, and teach you to look like a professional adult when you’re actually an incompetent trash human.

Get wise, get it together, and grow the hell up.

Anna Blackie is a real-life hopeless millennial who spends her time advising other millennials on how to function in an attempt to avoid her own shortcomings. Her long-term love of words led her into a Bachelor of Arts majoring in English and Writing at Macquarie University. After that, she decided three years of full-time reading just weren’t enough and went into publishing, where she now works in the editorial department of an independent Australian publisher. 

How to Adult came to be when Anna realised that there was a shocking amount she didn’t know about how to function in the adult world so she decided to write her very own guide to being a grown-up and fill it with all the things she hoped she would one day understand.

She lives in Sydney and dreams of one day eating an avocado in her very own house.
