    This would be the absolute best book ever and I would read the crap out of this!! I could write several of those chapters myself, I think! Love having a humorous start to my Thursday!

        Same ! I saw the post on IG first and was like “Oh, this will be interesting” only to come here and realize that these are just “chapters”. Please, write this book !

    This. is. awesome. HA!!!!! Love it. Especially chapter 12. And 13. And 5. If I were on my phone I’d do the little clappy emoticon a dozen times or so.

    Haha!! I literally lol’d. Then I just scrolled up to pick and comment on which was my favorite and I just can’t choose. Omg you are are funny.

    Holy shit. Please write ALL of these essays! Chapter 3 happened to me a couple weeks ago. I was out drinking with girlfriends, discussing a recent fling, and pictures were demanded. While my phone was being passed around, a picture of said fling from 2012 was liked. I had no idea until another friend sent me a screen shot of the fb like, teasing me about creeping on old pics. I seriously wanted to die. Really could’ve used your advice on that one!

    This was the best! I failed at chapter two in real life (not the live tweeting part – but I def. passed out). Also, so much anxiety over picking what to watch on Netflix!

  6. Danielle

    So freakin’ funny! My brain just couldn’t accept that these weren’t real links. Just kept clicking to my complete frustration.

  7. Diana

    Glad to see I wasn’t the only one trying to click on a chapter! It’s always good to start my day laughing. Thank you!!
