Have you ever planned a coffee date with one of your closest friends that turned into an all-day do-everything date? 🤪💕 I feel incredibly lucky to have that kind of friend in my life with Michelle. After our initial coffee date, we ran errands, picked up her daughter from out of town, dyed Easter eggs, made snacks and went to dinner, then watched some standup comedy! It was a full day of catching up, laughter, and being weird together 💜
"Excuse me, I am capable of watching the Kardashians and reading books. They're not mutually exclusive activities."
I feel like this particular quote was written for me, and I love it. I get shit for my love for reality TV, and frequently hear about how it's ruining the world and making people dumber, or whatever other nonsense assholes like to say. Yes, I love watching people being ridiculous on TV, but I also read almost 300 books last year, and have a college degree, so y'all can kiss my ass. I feel like this is a main point of Next Level Basic, and I appreciate the sentiments that Stassi expressed in the book. This book was comforting to me, and I had fun reading it. It's not perfect, but I enjoyed it. I could have done without some of the charts and graphs, and I skimmed a bit, but it was entertaining. I loved the encouragement to embrace what you enjoy & of care what anyone else thinks. This book is a good pick-me-up, and I'll probably read it again one day. Now I'm off to watch Vanderpump Rules again! I gave Next Level Basic 4.5⭐ on GoodReads. .
