Available for purchase at Amazon is a special calendar for millennial-aged “adults” who need a boost of morale to survive the allegedly traumatic tribulations of their daily lives.
The calendar, “I Adulted!”, includes 100 stickers that each contain a declarative statement in celebration of an otherwise completely mundane daily accomplishment of some sort.
Here are some examples:
- I flossed!
- I cooked for myself!
- I took a shower today!
- I put money in the bank!
- I wasn’t late!
- I didn’t tell my boss off!
- I made a sensible choice!
Actual adults should already be “accomplishing” these feats every day and without complaint. But because America is now teeming with coddled “adult” children who require safe spaces, trigger warnings and other nonsense to survive, of course a calendar such as this is needed.
I adulted stickers are stupid. #FoxAndFriends

What’s unclear is whether the creator of this calendar, author Robb Pearlman, is being serious or just trolling. The calendar’s description on Amazon notes that it’s based off his book, “I Adulted: Stickers for Grown-Ups.” Released two years ago, the book seems satirical in nature.
“Despite official reports, members of Generation X and younger feel completely and totally ill-prepared to deal with anything,” the book’s description reads. “They still, as purportedly self-sufficient adults, look toward Baby Boomers and the Greatest Generation and think, How did they do that?”
“So the easiest and best way to find comfort is to look not ahead at uncertainty (or, heaven forbid, around at the chaos currently surrounding them), but to the past to their simpler childhoods. The generation who championed the coloring book-as-relaxation trend grew up in a world in which they spent hours obsessing over, trading, and decorating with stickers. And it is with brightly colored stickers that they will finally find peace of mind. For a little while, at least.”
It sounds satirical, doesn’t it? Yet that may not be the case.
Pearlman is also the author of a book titled, “Pink Is for Boys.” The description for that book says it “rethinks and reframes the stereotypical blue/pink gender binary and empowers kids-and their grown-ups-to express themselves in every color of the rainbow.”
“Featuring a diverse group of relatable characters, Pink Is for Boys invites and encourages girls and boys to enjoy what they love to do, whether it’s racing cars and playing baseball, or loving unicorns and dressing up. Vibrant illustrations help children learn and identify the myriad colors that surround them every day, from the orange of a popsicle, to the green of a grassy field, all the way up to the wonder of a multicolored rainbow.”
That sounds extremely left-wing, which suggests that Pearlman is a far-left activist. His Twitter feed seems to confirm this. It contains numerous retweets of far-left activists and Democrats like Hollywood actors Judd Apatow and Mark Hamill, failed presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and President Donald Trump’s veritable arch-nemesis, George Conway.
And oh, he thinks Education Secretary Betsy DeVos is a “monster” …
You are a monster.

This suggests Pearlman is being dead serious with his calendar and its purpose of helping “adults” “proclaim life’s little victories.” But even if he’s not, “all jokes contain a kernel of truth,” as noted by New York Post columnist Rachelle Bergstein, “and in this case, the kernel is more like a whole corn maze of scary.”
“The generation of participation trophies and gold stars has grown up — allegedly — and is continuing to find ways to congratulate its own efforts,” she opined in a column Tuesday.
She’s not wrong. Young millennial-aged “adults” are considered by many to be the most selfish, self-centered, self-aggrandizing generation in American history. Not to mention ignorant. Much like Pearlman, who’s bought into the media’s lies about DeVos hook, line and sinker, this generation seems either unwilling or incapable of thinking critically and digging deeper for the actual truth.
This is, after all, the same generation that seems to believe the president is a Nazi (he’s not), that life in a communist nation would be better than life in a capitalist one (it wouldn’t) and that “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” is somehow racist. Yes, that’s right, they think this is racist:
That this generation of mostly far-left skulls full of mealy mush might need a “special” calendar just to make it through their otherwise normal day isn’t even surprising therefore.
As it stands, many among this group are already receiving “special” therapy because of their clinical Trump Derangement Syndrome, not to mention their deranged “wokeness.”
Last year comedian Tracy Ullman took a shot at these millennials by posting a parody video mocking their “wokeness” and their commitment to political correctness.
The only problem with Pearlman’s calendar is that it doesn’t contain enough stickers. Given how often young liberal activists cry and whine, it’s likely they’d need a sticker for every day of the year.
