Furiously Happy Free read ☆ 108 characters Ü eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ´ Jenny Lawson Read & Download Furiously Happy #1 New York Times BestsellerIn Furiously Happy a humor memoir tinged with just enough tragedy and pathos to make it worthwhile Jenny Lawson examines her own experience with severe depression and a host of other conditions and explains how it has led her to live life to the fullestI've often thought that people with severe depression have developed such a well for experiencing extreme emotion that they might be able to exp my love for jenny lawson is NOT AT ALL creepy jenny lawson i wanna make you blts and braid your hair i am really shitty at braiding and my fingers will be covered in mayonnaise after making you all those blts so it will probably get a little messy and crazy but it s the thought that counts and since your book is basically a manifesto of owning one s messy and crazy bits and alchemizing them into comedy gold we should be all setthis book is a little personal that Let s Pretend This Never Happened A Mostly True Memoir a little serious that s not to say i didn t bust out into indelicate snort guffaws many times while reading this because i totally did but in between all the laughter there s a lot of brave and honest stuff about managing mental and physical illness through anecdotes that are not at all humorous and none of that is a criticism i think it s astonishing how well she is able to write about her own obstacles how clear eyed she is in describing the debilitating emotional symptoms of disorders impossible for people who aren t fellow sufferers to understand while offering a platitude free example to those who are that yeah you can live through this shit she d probably hate it that i m calling her brave but she is it s not easy to share this much of yourself and unleash it into the world to complete strangers and while i m not on any medication nor am i seeing a therapist i still recognize a lot of myself in her stories and maybe i m not brave enough to elaborate on that or maybe i m just not comfortable suggesting that my problems are in any way comparable to hers but i know a lot of people who will see themselves in this book and that it will help them and make them laugh in eual parts and i m sure doctors would disagree with the adage that laughter is the best medicine but it s not the worst the worst is that antidepressant they advertise on teevee with the disclaimer about its side effects including depression and thoughts of suicide because how is that helpfulso while it feels strange to say about a book so full of voodoo vaginas dead raccoon rodeos and japanese toilets this is an important book it just also happens to be really fucking funnyher late night musings If you put a bunch of chameleons on top of a bunch of chameleons on top of a bowl of Skittles what would happen Is that science Because if so I finally get why people want to do sciencethe wisdom she learned from her father You don t have to go to some special private school to be an artist Just look at the intricate beauty of cobwebs Spiders make them with their buttsher assessment of australia People warned us that everything in Australia wants to kill you but I think they re overreacting Australia doesn t want to kill you It s like an exclusive club for people who care very little about being alive Australia is really a lot like Texas if Texas were mad at you and drunk and maybe had a knifeand her scoffing at bruce springsteen dismissing him as obviously not the boss of scientific accuracyi mean he s probably never even conducted any chameleonskittles experimentsbut it s her tales about how unfit she is for the adult world that were the most dangerous to my tendency to laugh pee particularly the chapter that involves her meeting with maury the financial planner and victor aka mister jenny lawson Maury asked me if I had life insurance and I assured him that I didn t because I didn t want Victor to be arrested There was a pause in the conversationShe thinks life insurance is only taken out on people about to be murdered Victor explained stoicallypoor victor Victor sighed but frankly I m not really sure what he d expected It was my job to accidentally make money and his job to make sure that I didn t lose it when I was doing wobbly cartwheels in the parking lot after the bars closed Our roles had been clearly definedpoor victor We can come back to wills later How about retirement plansVictor spent the next several minutes speaking in a combination of words and letters that I m pretty sure means I have a retirement plan and it s uite goodMaury looked at me expectantlyI have a drawer I put change intoVictor put his head in his handsNot uarters though I use those for gumpoor victorall of this seems entirely sensible to me and familiar i don t like dealing with forms and grown up things either and i like gum and cartwheelspoor victor also has to deal with her clutter of dead animals her plans for a living cattax write off called the president and her delightfully irrepressible spirit as the book s cover model rory the raccoon sneaks up over victor s shoulder during business related skype callslucky victori want a rory photobombing me too oh dreams do come true i just fucking love her the parts where i can nod along her boredom with financial matters her fear not of flying but of getting to the plane her anxiety over small talk and hiding when the doorbell rings her love of cheese despite being lactose intolerant and also the parts where i may not be able to relate but i want to bake her a pie and try to make things better for her although it seems as though she is finding her strength all on her own You learn to appreciate the fact that what drives you is very different from what you re told should make you happy You learn that it s okay to prefer your personal idea of heaven live tweeting zombie movies from under a blanket of kittens rather than someone else s idea that famefortuneparties are the pinnacle we should all reach for And there s something surprisingly freeing about thatIt is an amazing gift to be able to recognize that the things that make you the happiest are so much easier to grasp than you thought There is such freedom in being able to celebrate and appreciate the uniue moments that recharge you and give you peace and joy Sure some people want red carpets and paparazzi Turns out I just want banana Popsicles dipped in Malibu rum It doesn t mean I m a failure at appreciating the good things in life It means I m successful in recognizing what the good things in life are for mebut this is a jenny lawson book and i m not going to close a review with something sedate and rational like that should i uote a portion from her one night stand with a sleep clinic or from the story containing the frantic exclamation I VE SWALLOWED A LEPRECHAUN AND IT S EATING ITS WAY OUT OF MY CHEST or her realization that everything in the world either is or isn t pandasno i will uote a passage from the appendix which in the jennyverse is located in the middle of the bookI realize that it s weird that this appendix is in the middle of the book instead of at the end where appendixes are supposed to be but it works better here and technically your appendix is in the middle of your body so it sort of makes sense Probably God had the same issue when Adam was like I don t want to sound ungrateful but it sort of hurts when I walk Is that normal Is this thing on my foot a tumor And God was like It s not a tumor That s your appendix Appendixes go at the end Read a book dude Then Adam was all Really Because I don t want to second guess you but it seems like a design flaw Also that snake in the garden told me it doesn t even do anything And God shook his head and muttered Jesus that fucking snake is like TMZ And then Adam was like Who s Jesus and God said No one yet It s just an idea I m throwing around And then God zapped Adam s appendix off his foot and stuck it in Adam s midsection instead in case he decided to use it later But the next day Adam probably asked for a girlfriend and God was like It s gonna cost you a rib and Adam was all Don t I need those Can t you just make her out of my appendix And the snake popped out and hissed Seriously why are you so attached to this appendix idea Don t those things occasionally explode for no reason whatsoever and God was like THIS IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS JEFFERSON I M STARTING TO UESTION WHY I EVEN MADE YOU And Adam was like Wait what They explode And God was all I M NOT NEGOTIATING WITH YOU ADAM And that s why appendixes go in the middle and should probably be removedwhen i die i am leaving my body to jenny lawson and she can stuff it and do whatever she wants with it hopefully it will involve wingsmaggie gets into it sort of j law s not the only one who can make up wordscome to my blog
