Both: Hey.

Emma: So we need to talk. That is a phrase that often times inspires fear or dread in adulthood, but it doesn't always mean something bad. Sometimes it can open the door to new and positive changes. And today we want to talk about some of the changes coming up in our lives.

Mike: After two and a half years and just under 100 videos, we've done some soul searching. Over the course of our videos we've tried to encourage y'all to really reach for your dreams, to live all in and full out. Well, we've decided to take our own advice.

E: Mike is moving to Los Angeles to pursue a career in screen writing, I am entering a new phase of my academic career, we're both still writing novels for you, so we feel like now is the time to bring our personal How to Adult journey to a close. Mike, what are some of your favorite How to Adult memories?

M: I remember when we were making the first episode I was very nervous and the first time you did the thing you do at the beginning of every Elmify video where you went "Hey!" like the, try to...

E: Hey! (Laughs)

M: I was like "Oh my God! I just saw that in real life." That was awesome.

E: Nice!

M: And I actually, I laughed and you were like "I'm sorry, I have to say hey". But it was just really awesome.

E: That's funny. Can we, I wish... Do you think you have that footage?

M: Oh yeah.

E: Hey. So my name is Emma and... (Laughs)

M: Sorry. I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry.

E: I have to say "Hey".

E: One of my favorites was the inception of the Chronocopter and when we wore those goggles and we went and we filmed out on your, on your patio.

M: Yeah.

E: Being outside. I really liked that through line of the Chronocopter. There have been so many incredible guest hosts.

M: Yes.

E: Like really good guest hosts.

M: Gotta mention the VidCon meetup that we had.

E: Yes!

M: That was so cool.

E: That was so good and we met so many awesome people.

M: I knew from the beginning of making How to Adult that it was going to be fun and cool and exciting. I didn't know how much it was going to mean to me. I didn't know how much I was going to become a part of this awesome community. There were a lot of people who helped make How to Adult behind the scenes. I would especially like to thank Nathan Talbott who edited a lot of our videos in the last year, Alan Lastufka who did an awesome job helping me write a lot of the episodes, and of course the big guys John and Hank Green for helping us make the show.

E: Thank you for your support.

M: Yeah, thank you for remembering to be awesome.

E: Oh. Additionally and especially we would like to thank you, the viewers, who make up the How to Adult community.

M: Thank you guys so much for watching and taking this journey with us. We appreciate you so much. It's just been so great to be a part of this community.

E: If you want to keep up with us you can check out our personal channels. In the meantime we're gonna keep the catchphrase safe with us.

M: Stay tuned. While this may be an end, it doesn't necessarily mean it's the end. There may be more How to Adult coming your way soon.

E: Good.

M: Yeah.
