Chores and responsibilities are obviously a part of adulthood. Just because something is unpleasant doesn’t mean it has to be a pain to do. There are some things you can do to make it less of a drag. So what can you do to make it easier to accomplish things?
Evan and I have both attended community college in our educational paths. We found it to be beneficial and a financially savvy choice. So here are a few reasons why you should consider attending community college.
If you spend most of your time occupied by watching TV or playing videogames, you will probably get bored after awhile. Even if the game or show is interesting, just doing the same thing for awhile gets tedious. If you use the time you have available to engage in productive activities, you’ll probably feel better, have accomplished something, and mental health can improve as well.
Because we’re busy most of the time, but enjoy living in a clean apartment, we’ve developed a 45 minute cleaning routine.
We’re not calling this “How to Maintain a Productive and Enjoyable Work-Life Balance” because the term work-life balance just doesn’t encompass everything this post is about. We’re calling it “life balance” because “work-life balance” makes it seem like half of your life is work and the other half is life. Life includes so much.

Mornings are hard. I am not a morning person. In my old routine I would pretty much just wake up, throw some cereal and coffee in my mouth and ride off to school. But, once Evan and I started trying to gain more weight, I had to eat more like an actual adult and less like a college student. When we began making real food, it took a lot longer, like half an hour. But no one has that much time in their weekday mornings right? If you’re looking for some help with morning time management, you can use our system we’ve figured out. Both of us work together to cook, so this routine will probably take a bit longer for one person. I’ve added a letter next to each step to show who does what. The mission: cook eggs, coffee, and oatmeal fast enough so Evan has time to…
