I really really wish I’d had it when I was in my late teens/early 20s. I was always looking for books that would help me know how to be a more together person, but those I found weren’t really practical. (Although since the only one I can remember reading was this one, I’m not surprised they weren’t all that useful to me.) If I’d read it then – and actually paid attention to it – I’m pretty sure it would have prevented quite a lot of mistakes.
In fact, it should probably be issued to all students in that tacky bag they give you on your first day at uni (in mine: one cigarette, disposable lighter, condom, packet of crisps, voucher for free bread and baked beans from Tesco).
At least now I’ve got a list of stuff I should keep in the boot of my car for emergencies. Now I just have to buy it all. And put it in the boot of my car…
Ooh! I’ve just discovered there’s a blog too.
