Welcome to September! Adultitis is certainly excited about the calendar shift, as the lazy days of summer ramp up into busier times – especially for anyone affected by the back-to-school season.
Well, we refuse to surrender, and we’ve got four new Small Rebellions specially designed to upend the Big A. They’re part of the Escape Adulthood Adventure Club, where we send free stickers (kind of like merit badges) by mail to the first 100 folks who complete the challenges and share their escapades online.
Rally your friends, your family, your co-workers — or even just your little old self — and tackle any or all of these challenges. They’re all great ways to make memories, make a difference, and make Adultitis mad!
Adopt a Pet (Rock) – Find a lonely abandoned rock and give it a new leash on life. Decorate it, accessorize it, name it, bring it to work…let your creativity run wild! (For sticker eligibility, tag @escapeadulthood and use the hashtag #eaac005)
Project Play Dough – Who can forget that awesome smell?! Knead, roll, and pinch your imagination to new heights by making something fun out of modeling clay. Here’s a great recipe if you want make your own. (For sticker eligibility, tag @escapeadulthood and use the hashtag #eaac006)
Pajama Run – Surprise someone you care about by taking them out for a late-night treat in their pajamas. (Make sure to wear yours, too!) For best results, maintain the mystery by keeping the destination a secret for as long as possible. And if you want to go in style, use the coupon code ADVENTURECLUB at ForeverLazy to get 20% off anything! (For sticker eligibility, tag @escapeadulthood and use the hashtag #eaac007)
Chewing Gum Challenge – When it comes to bubble gum, size matters. Challenge someone to a chewing gum duel and see who can blow the biggest bubble! (For sticker eligibility, tag @escapeadulthood and use the hashtag #eaac008)
Whether or not you choose to share your exploits online, I hope you will make some time to tackle some or all of these challenges with someone you care about this month. It’s not hard to create an amazing portfolio of memories with your life, you just have to want to.
