before hitting the request button I was ready to declare once and for all to the pornbrarian that But then I realized maybe he she doesn t know me quite as well as I thought they did because there were like eleventy four people ahead of me in the queue and I very much have the mindset that This Is America and OF COURSE I Want It Now Mind you, I had no idea who Matt Bellassai was I simply bemoaned the fact that my entitled butt would have to wait a hot minute rather than receive instant gratification Then I did what I do best and forgot all about this book until finally my turn did come around and I checked out the synopsis.Here are some things to know about me 1 I still don t really know who Matt Bellassai is, although his book made me laugh the terrifying what if I lart definition below laugh that happens when old ladies attempt to contain their guffaws whilst reading at work.2 I m not positive I know what a Buzzfeed is either and no I m not interested in looking it up, but apparently that s how this guy initially became famous I think there was some other Buzzfeed thing that I wasn t familiar with and some of you tried to explain to me, but alas I am dumb and also maybe have early onset dementia so I don t remember any specifics 3 I do not and will not ever yeah yeah, immortal Bieberish words remind me to but I feel pretty comfortable saying never here spend my free time watching You Tubers or vloggers I started jotting down my ramblings simultaneously with reading this book, so I now know that Bellassai isn t a traditional You Tuber I think maybe, but he did do a video on the internet that went viral so tomato tomahto My husband and friends can t even get me to watch Netflix and that is a simple button on my remote that I don t know how to work, but at least I know exists I refuse to use a computer once I leave the office and my phone is for making phone calls and about twice a week to send a text it takes me 14 years to type out since I insist on using real words and punctuation I have nothing against You Tubers or viral videologists I ll just be leaving the addiction to watching their videos to the youth of the nation That being said, I have still not taken a gander at Bellassai s apparently People s Choice Award winning web series.4 I frequently complain even when I enjoy their stories okay about youngsters who write memoirs because they haven t lived long enough to have accrued experiences that fill a life story and instead seem to be cashing in before their 15 minutes of fame runs out That s why I m choosing to call Bellassai an essayist la David Sedaris His stories may be about himself, but they are presented as snippets of life rather than an autobiography and also because I am allowed to be as fickle as I would like to be.Okay, so now that you ve had to endure allllllll of that overshare, here s the point I was not and am not familiar with Matt Bellassai something I m sure he would be completely comfortable with since I highly doubt middle aged, fat, married women are his target demographic That being said, this book was FREAKING HYSTERICAL to the point aforementioned that I wasthan a bit concerned I might laugh fart a k a lart since I was trying my best to not allow any raucous sounds to escape my body from one orifice and that those sounds would therefore choose a different one And although I m almost certain that I am nearly old enough to have birthed this boy should I have chosen motherhood instead of high school , we are of one mind when it comes many different topics and especially to one particular terrifying entitySay one wrong thing, however innocuous yet hilarious you think it may be, and you become Teenage Girl Enemy Number One I m chubby, gay, pale and a whole decade older than most of them, which means I might as well wear a sign that says, Hello fellow Internet users, please destroy my entire lifeIf you are in need of something light that will confirm that no, your new mascara is indeed not waterproof, this might be the book for you Now I have to make an exception to everything I said up top and FINALLY Google this cat in order to watch the Drunk at Work or whatever the fuck his shit is called before my friend here at the office bludgeons me to death with my stapler IMMEDIATE EDIT Google search officially complete or as complete as I want it to be which means I watched one video and now I m going to figure out what book I m going to read next I deactivated my Facebook account around a month ago for all of the reasons listed HERE Matt Bellassai is my Patronus I never take the time to write reviews, but given my one star rating, I feel the necessity to justify it For anyone who enjoyed Matt s Buzzfeed show Whine About It, I bet you were equally as excited to see his book announcement as you were when new episodes would come out However, I m not sure if the brevity of the videos format made itenjoyable or if I ve simply grown out of this style of humor The entire book comes across as a rambling, entitled mess What I think is his attempt to I never take the time to write reviews, but given my one star rating, I feel the

attempt to normalize the chaos of adulthood simply comes off like a toddler screaming on the floor of a mall He comes off as braggadocious about how little effort he puts into each day, playing right into the hands of any person who is on the I hate Millennials bandwagon I know it s intending to be for dramatic effect, to getlaughs, but there s no purpose for it I think the easiest comparison would be Shane Dawson s books, I Hate My Selfie and It Gets Worse Both use the same kind of stories and humor self deprecating, emphasizing on being bad adults and having a rough coming of age However, Shane s tie up nicely into life lessons, or things he s used to become better and wants to share, whereas Matt s just come off as excuses and woe is me s A combination of factors conspired to

If you don t know who Matt Bellassai is, you are missing out I first found Matt through Buzzfeed when he boss allowed him to get drunk at his desk and complain about whatever his little heart desires children, holidays, foods It s called Whine About It and it s HILARIOUS So when Whine About It ended, he started To Be Honest, which is virtually the same thing with a different name Then he started the Unhappy Hour podcast, which once again includes Matt getting drunk and complaining, but this If you don t know who Matt Bellassai is, you are missing out I first found Matt through Buzzfeed when

with other people Now that you know who he is, lets talk about Everything is Awful Once you get his voice and mannerisms down, you can almost hear every word as if you were watching the video On Why Teenagers are the Worst great chapter by the way, I was getting ugly stares on the bus because I couldn t stop laughing It s told through short chapters, each dealing with one annoying thing or the other Mostly, it s just Matt rambling on like he does in his sensational videos, just with less alcohol well that might be a lie, he could have drunk written this entire book, who knows Basically I have two points to make with this review 1 Go watch his videos2 Go buy this book3 Do these two things immediatelyThis review andcan be found at A Reader s Diary Matt Bellassai is AMAZING I had no idea

read this It s hilarious and will have you wanting to become besties with him in no time I feel such a kinship with Matt Bellassai From our shared love of carbohydrates, to our love of take out food, to our habits of downing entire bottles of wine and giving drunken opinions on everything, I feel like Matt and I may have been separated at birth.If you are a fan of Matt s BuzzFeed content or his podcast, you will like this book It is laugh out loud funny, self deprecating and relatable A solid memoir but not a memoir that I am happy I read If any of you follow me on Facebook, then you ve seen me share Matt Bellassai s BuzzFeed video series Whine About It I find him to be a total lay it all out there, entitled, bitchy queen, and I love him In his series, if you haven t seen it, he gets

bitches as much about himself as he does other people, laments his weight, his social and physical awkwardness, his lack of athleticism, and his disappearing hair He also talks about his crush on his college best friend, his coming out, and his People s Choice award and of course the camera man actually was focused on the wrong guy when the award was bestowed upon himof course it was He admits to being a total entitled asshole nerd when he was younger, and frankly, even now a little goes a long way His attitude towards life, at least the attitude he shows the outside world, IS that everything is awful He s whiny and bitchy, but also hilarious But after slogging through hours and hours of a boring book about the cyber war, this was exactly what I needed I first discovered Matt on his weekly video series where he got drunk at his desk and told us how to live our lives Whine About It and now To Be Honest have given me laughs every Wednesday for quite some time Crass but hilarious Thank

he thinks if you re going to laugh at him, he might as well make money Not a bad proposal, I guess But, alas, I m not a mean soul and so I didn t find his overweight, unsanitary, unmotivated life
