Adulting: THE BOOK is now in stores! Places like amazon.com, Barnes and Noble, IndieBound, Urban Outfitters and — soon — Costco!
If you read this blog you are 91.3 percent likely (science!) to enjoy the book, which is much better organized (chapters on things like cleaning! Emergencies! Family shit!), has lots of doodles and involved a lot of research.
But! If you have no money (or just like entering contests) I am doing a giveaway. Here’s the deal: Reblog or reply, via tumblr or comments, about one way you are a good adult. It doesn’t have to be big. Just something you’re good at, that you’re proud of, that maybe you don’t give yourself credit for. Five winners, chosen by me, will get signed copies of Adulting with a note congratulating them on their adult accomplishments.
I’ll start: I am really good at being there for my friends when they’re going through a tough time. Also, I own a very pretty set of chopsticks and don’t have to use the ones that come with takeout.
Update: Oh my goodness, y’all, I love these so so much. Two favorite thus far: “Instead of posting a passive aggressive status on Facebook, I approach my friends and talk to them if I feel they have treated me unfairly” and “I’m finally LISTENING to my friends instead of adding in a matching fact about myself! It only took 46 years!” Unfortunately, this giveaway is for the US only (for now!).
See? Easy! So. What are you good at?
