I wrote yesterday that I was 39 pages into Jessica Weiner’s A Very Hungry Girl (beware: affiliate link!). I went ahead and finished it last night. I’ll admit that I was a little disappointed by the book, as it soon began to describe Weiner’s work in far more detail than her personal struggles. It became — to a certain degree — more about “stuff” than “people”, even though her work as a writer, director, and performer of motivational works is very much about people. But we went from a nitty-gritty view of her world and the people around her to a 1000-foot view of her work. Even the occasional mention…
I’ve been struggling to write something constructive here all day. I’m recovering from a two-day migraine that is merely a splitting headache at this point, and I’m on my last thread dealing with my current job. If my last day here weren’t tomorrow, today would be. So while I’m not sure I can manage to be cheerful and helpful here today with links and happy progress, I think I can be “un-grumpy”. I started reading a book I grabbed from Michael this weekend titled A Very Hungry Girl by Jessica Weiner. I’m only 39 pages in, but it’s a tear-jerker.
