I Adulted! Stickers for Grown-Ups by Robb Pearlman (2017)
When I was a kid in elementary school, I always looked forward to getting a sticker on my homework. “Super!” “Fantastic!” “Great Job!” Those stickers were often more important than the actual letter grade. As I grew older, those stickers appeared less frequently. In high school, they were gone altogether.
Now that I am an adult, I never get stickers anymore. There is no adhesive affirmation that I did “Awesome!” on any project at work, or that my ideas were “Incredible!” Outside motivation is not easy to find. That is what makes the 100 stickers included in Robb Pearlman‘s I Adulted! Stickers for Grown-Ups “Brilliant!”
There are stickers for a number of everyday adult accomplishments, and just because no one else noticed doesn’t mean you shouldn’t pat yourself on the back. From “I Cooked for Myself!” to “I Ignored the Online Troll!”, I Adulted! Stickers for Grown-Ups is a fun collection with which you can memorialize the mundane. “I Put Money in the Bank!” “I Called my Elderly Relative!” “I Didn’t Tell my Boss Off!” These are just a few of the day-to-day deeds that deserve some recognition.
Just in case there is something you want to celebrate that is not included, there are eight blank stickers for you to write in whatever little thing you think was “Amazing!” Just about anyone who misses childhood will appreciate this book.
