a new urban dictionary term is what FACS education and FCCLA is all about. The top definition of “adulting” on Urban Dictionary is: Adulting (v): 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.
“We often use #adulting when doing the things that make us realize being an “adult” isn’t fun and we want to go back to the way things were when mommy and daddy took such good care of us– when they paid the bills, bought us food and called to make our doctor’s appointments.”
In the past year, the term “adulting” has increased in usage by 700 percent on Twitter.
