Can Barely Take Care Myself
There is nothing I don't like about Jen Kirkman. I was first introduced to Jen when after I had read Heather McDonald's book and I caught a clip of a Facts of Life parody from Chelsea Lately in which she played Jo. I was instantly drawn to her as a performer. As I aspiring comedienne and child free by choice 34 year old women I felt compelled to read this book when I heard about it. I loved EVERY second of it. This book is more than just being about not wanting kids. It spoke to me on different levels. Also, it was definitely the book I should have been reading at the moment. I feel so much of Jen's life growing up mirrored my own in many ways. It is refreshing and comforting to know someone you admire had similar experiences as you. I loved how she embraces who she is as person and as a former theatre geek, as well as stand by her convictions in her choice to not having kids. And she does it all in a positive and honest light. That is one of my favorite things about her. She doesn't apologize for who she is and what she believes in. This book has inspired me to continue on with my comedy and not be afraid to be who I am, as well as sticking by my reasons for not wanting kids. I urge you to read this if you are child free by choice or if you want just want a good read. You should support this funny lady, because she has so much to offer. I cannot wait for book two!Get your Can Barely Take Care Myself Now!
