To celebrate the publication of our first-ever book, The Frisky 30-Day Breakup Guide, we’re re-running the original series that inspired it, and having writer Maude Standish bravely road test the book’s expanded tasks and tips. So follow along, chart your own progress, and find out everything else you need to know to forget he-who-shall-not-be-named!
Read A Book You Loved
Figure out where your closest public library is. Go there and get a library card if you don’t have one already. Remember wandering the stacks in grade school? Chances are you read something as a little girl that jump-started your imagination or inspired you to do something silly. Today, you’re going to find that book that you enjoyed so much (a Nancy Drew mystery, one of The Baby-Sitters Club books, anything Judy Blume, etc.) and read it all over again, as a grown woman. Remind yourself of everything that you can learn in the span of 10 (or 20, or 30) years, ’cause, girl, you ain’t done yet. Far from it.
