I didn’t know who Erin Chack was prior to seeing This is Really Happening on Goodreads Best Books of 2017 but after I looked at what she’s written on Buzzfeed I realized I’d read at least half of her most recent posts. Books written by people who are, for the most part, regular people can be hit or miss but the essays in This is Really Happening are more hit than miss.
So that’s my only dating advice. Find a carrot who understands your anxieties well enough to execute a prank so perfect you almost sol yourself in front of a coworker. Bonus points if he brings you cupcakes after.
Chack is your typical Millennial, if your typical Millennial met the love of their life at 14 or had cancer at 19 followed by a writing career at one of the most popular websites in news and pop culture. She bounces around between her childhood, where she spite peed her pants in Kindergarten, and her job at Buzzfeed where one can chat with someone about all the puppies in the office before realizing that your’re talking to Seth Rogen.
I still find it hard to explain what I do to people over the age of thirty. If I had to summarize it, I’d say I compile the best of the Internet into lists for people to read when they’re bored at work.
