Official SummaryA guided journal to celebrate your adult firsts

Congrats—you’re an adult now!*
Your first real job. The first plant you kept alive. The first relationship you kept alive (until further notice).

This hand-lettered and illustrated guided journal is a charming and cheeky celebration of what it means to finally be a grown-up (sort of).

From the first time you visited home without bringing dirty laundry to the first time you truly felt comfortable in your own skin, the small victories and meaningful milestones in this quirky and insightful journal make it a great gift and a fun experience for anyone winning at adulthood – the good, the bad and the OMG.

Review: May was the month of graduations, but if you still have to get that graduate a gift – or there is a party approaching – definitely think about getting Adult-ish. It’s a hand-lettered journal full of great quotes, activities, and other places to draw and share. It’s all about being an adult and chronicling those milestones – relationships, apartments, doing your own laundry. Serious and silly topics!

This is just one page in the book. If you can’t read it, it’s a section where you get advice from various people in your life (neighbor, old friend, etc.) and then you write down their words of wisdom on the page. The book is full of little things like this. If you’re going to gift this book, I’d suggest adding some pens or pencils to go with it so they can get started right away!

In the beginning of this book, there is a Certificate of Birth into Adulthood that the recipient can fill out! Fun, right? This would be a great book to fill out over a long period of time. It’s kind of a self-guided journal!

    This is fantastic! I wonder if I even remember the answers to the questions 🙂 I always have graduates every year, so I am going to keep this on the radar for next year!

  2. This book sounds great. How cool to keep track of all your firsts and get advice from those in your life. It’s so easy to forget everything you’ve done so to have somewhere to compile all those memories is awesome. I think it’s a great graduation gift.

  3. I don’t know anyone graduating this year – believe it or not – but this looks wonderful. I love to journal myself. Wonderful concept. Thanks for letting me stop by. Have a nice weekend! #GetSocial17

  4. hehe, this seems like an awesome book! I still don’t feel like I’m really an adult yet even though it’s been over a decade since I turned 18 (hah). I can’t keep relationships alive and I still don’t have a plant! :[ (A raccoon savaged it.)
