About the author
(from goodreads)

Hello! I’m Sarah and I’m a cartoonist and illustrator. I graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2014 and currently live in Brooklyn. My comics are semi-autobiographical and follow the adventures of myself, my friends, and my beloved pets.

My Review:

Contrary to popular belief, being introverted is not about your ability to socialize...it is about what you do after. Sarah is back with her third book,
I have been a big fan of Sarah scribbles, and read through both Adulthood is a Myth and Big Mushy Happy lump. I've said it of her books before: they are simple and endearing...I always have a gala time. But unlike the first two books that revolved around an overarching theme, this one was a bit generic in terms of content.
The best part of the collection, to me, was the truth bombs she has dropped throughout.
Consider this as a very simple example of the same:

So subtle yet so incontrovertibly true, you laugh your guts out without really even creating an arch on  your lips. My point is, she makes smiling possible in ways we did not know of.  

This one hurt me a bit too much too.

The one thing that doesn't change, no matter which Sarah Scribble you pick up: you embrace the fallibility of being a human.

And here, for instance: do you know how retail therapy works? Yeah, you guessed it, it doesn't!

Another thumbs up to the book for covering almost everything you can think of: from reading books, binge-watching to headphones and listening to music.
And then, she took a serious, an innocuously sarcastic turn. This is when I knew:

And, oops...



Parting words? Chaos, I am your mistress!
