Are you stressed out, overbooked, and underwhelmed by life? Fed up with pleasing everyone else before you please yourself? It's time to stop giving a f--k. This brilliant, hilarious, and practical parody of Marie Kondo's best seller The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up explains how to rid yourself of unwanted obligations, shame, and guilt - and give your f--ks instead to people and things that make you happy.

This book didn't really inspire me to embrace more happiness. I guess because I just graduated from college that it's harder for me to relate to. I'm not established enough to not give "a fuck" about meetings, doing work that is mundane or sleeping in, and I definitely won't be starting a family any time soon. The author also seems to hate pretty much everything. Maybe it's because she's in her 40s and I'm in my early 20s. Or maybe I just need to listen to the book again. But for right now, I view this book as a negative source of energy that almost encourages me not to get out of my comfort zone. Staying in one's comfort zone leads to a bland and painfully normal life.
