Thoroughly enjoying the relatable pep talks given by Adam - it's truly unlike any other daily journal I've ever encountered. I'm positive I'll be making use of Pick Me Up for years to come.
i take this book to bars like i would take that friend to bars when i feel like everything is just a little bit off and i need a little realignment.
