Book: Adulting- How To Become a Grown-Up in 468 Easy(ish) Steps (Kelly Williams Brown)

June 02, 2015



Lol. I picked this book for obvious reasons. I have a bit (okay, a lot( of the Peter Pan syndrome. Having a tough time bridging the student to adult life stage. I mean, look at this. We're a kid for like.. 12 years, then you become a teen for a couple more, and BAM suddenly you're an adult for another 60 years. Skewed ratio much.

Anyways, it's quite a funny book. With practical advice.

  • "Step 1: Accept that you are not that special.
    You are not a special snowflake. This is the most difficult and important thing to accept if you wish to be a grown-up.
    ....Your friends and family will be your flag bearers, drum majors for the You Parade, but here's the truth: Most of the world doesn't give a flying fk about you." Yup. Hahaha.
  • (on listening more to people)
    "Every single person on this planet has fascinating things to say. .(...)Think of them as crabs, and your job is to extract all their delicious (if sometimes hard to reach) information meat." LOL
  • "I'd always rather someone tell me I'm a good writer than that my red hair is pretty, because one of those things is something I work my ass off at, and another is some protein encoding. Both are sweet things to say, one means a lot more to me."

And lastly,
