WHAT IS THIS COLLECTION OF NOTES ABOUT?
Figure out what to do with your life, make money or struggle, get married - or not, have children - or not, buy a house or rent an apartment, get a loan for a new car or drive with a bicycle that creaks, settle in a middle-class suburb or live abroad for years. As a child, one looked forward to being an adult. Then, suddenly, you have to make choices that will affect the quality of your life, even your survival, for the next few decades. And you must take responsibility not only for your own life but for the health and well-being of other people you care for.
The material in this collection follows the sometimes confused process of one who thought it was his duty to find his own path as an adult.

About the Author
Brand Smit is a freelance writer, part-time teacher and since 2006, master of a wide variety of websites. Born in Pretoria in 1971, Brand traversed South Africa with his family for the next 15 years. He graduated from high school in 1989, as fate would have it, back in Pretoria. He then continued his training for life as a productive adult at the University of Pretoria, before heading south a year later. After five years of learning and thinking he followed the only path that seemed reasonable after thinking about it. Two years in South Korea had him yearning for the country of his birth. He returned, worked in Johannesburg for six months, then left again – this time for the shores of the beautiful island of Taiwan. He has called the southern port city of Kaohsiung home ever since.
