If you've ever expressed even the slightest bit of dissatisfaction with the current state of your life, you've inevitably gotten the response, "Have you tried meditation? A 12-step skin care routine? Nature bathing? This very specific currently trending herbal supplement? Exercise? Joining a cult? Joining an exercise cult?" and a variety of other helpful suggestions. This book explores these topics with intellectual essays like "I'm Moving to the Woods to Live in a Nightmare Shack" and "Please Try Our Irresponsibly Expensive Makeup Stick." It also features some incredibly important guides like, "How to Tell if Your Underwear Is Expensive Enough" and "Do You Want a Snack or Are You Just Horny?" As well as some weird stories about fictional men who may or may not have ruined the author's chances of ever having a functional relationship. But, most importantly, if you learn anything from this book, it's that a $72 ceramic mug made by a Portland artisan is not going to change your life.
