The Dime Roll: Adulting Is Hard (...for Everyone)

July 21, 2017

This week, we're delivering you a friendly reminder that being a young person usually means that you don't quite have everything figured out yet—and that's OK. (You might even be a not-so-young person—and that's OK, too!) Once we've eased your stress with our "you got this!" pep talk, we're bringing you some super interesting stuff to read about while you relax. Still stressed? For our next trick, we've got a Q&A interview with the director of legislative affairs for the Attorney General's Office here in Colorado that might make you rethink things (spoiler alert: her job is way, way, way, way stressful). While we're pretty glad we don't have her level of responsibilty, we're also super grateful she's doing that politicizin' stuff for us.

Are you a diehard Dimer? If so, we'd love for you to pass us along to your friends and family (dogs and grandmas included). We also love hearing from our readers, so hit us up on Facebook and Twitter if you've got something to share. (C'mon...you know you want to.)
