In Conclusion, Don't Worry About It Reviews
This was cute and happy and inspiring. I’ve always loved reading commencement speeches so it was a fun read for me. Plus I do love Lauren Graham.
OMG why do all her books make me cry! She said all the things I needed to hear right now! Thanks Lauren!
I've been really struggling with finding joy in my first job after grad school, so this book is exactly what I needed at this point in my life. It's a great reminder that it's okay to make mistakes and that while your first job might not be your dream job, you'll get there.
I definitely don't think I am the target audience for something like this. It was originally written for a high school graduation commencement speech and then expanded for a university graduation commencement speech. But I feel like everyone could get something out of this. It's inspirational and funny and just nice to listen to. I can see how graduating seniors could value the information she shared. But even someone like me, who maybe doesn't have everything figured out just yet, could use som ...more
I love Lauren Graham and this advice spoke to me cause I'm feeling about like I'm just waiting to succeed, instead of looking for happiness and wholeness in the little things. I just wish it had been longer!
I knew it was a short read but I didn’t realize it was under 50 pages. I genuinely liked everything about it and I’m always fascinated by Lauren Graham & her life. I rated it a 3 because it was a little more superficial/didn’t have as much substance as I anticipated. I thought there would be a tad more “advice.” I tend to be a sucker for inspiring books so I usually feel more after reading these types of books. But I did enjoy everything about it! I think part of it is my fault for going in ...more
I was looking for a short, breezy book to read after plowing through another depressing "Trump is ruining the world" narrative. I liked Graham in "Gilmore Girls" and enjoyed one of her earlier books. This one was certainly breezy, but it was too short for the price. I'm not cheap, so I usually don't even notice how much a book costs, but when I opened this one and saw that it included some not very impressive drawings and realized that there were probably not many more words in it than in two of ...more
So, I'll be graduating with my Master's in a little over a month. I no longer have a permanent job, I completely disliked the field I thought I would enter (on top of not being certified), have zero clue what to do next, and generally feel "behind" in every single point in my life.
This hit home because I'm feeling that "senior slump." In the past I've pretty much always been on top: Good grades, involved in a bunch of activities, snagging jobs with little effort, blah blah blah. And now my life ...more
