A Work In Progress- Connor Franta: Review

tumblr_nqg9twr7Wp1tcf0aho1_500 (1) So. Damn. I-n-s-p-i-r-i-n-g. When you read this book- because you will – you literally will feel like you could fly to the moon in a Tesco’s carrier bag…or something. I bought the book because it was on offer in Tesco- hence the convenient Tesco reference above. I admit: it was cheap. So I bought it- relatable? No? Oh, just me then. But the point is…ITS FREAKING AMAZING! Let me expand on that…

For the deep thinkers, big dreamers, and innovative creators of the world who inspire me.

This basically is a picture-perfect, well…word-perfect summary of the WHOLE book:

  • Deep thinkers

This 212 page object will seriously make you re-evaluate your WHOLE life. There are chapters on “The Levels Of Friendship”, anxiety, his struggles to identify and accept himself and his sexuality, suppressing your inner creativity, accepting your flaws, happiness, faith…and coffee. There is literally a chapter called “COFFEE”. Completely cramped my tone. Thanks Fanta. (<Yes, that was deliberate. I know my style…*snaps fingers in Z formation*). Connor Franta- A Work In Process

  • Big dreamers

The book begins with a charming 9 page chapter called ‘In Retrospect– which, after an e-x-t-e-n-s-i-v-e Google search for the definition of the word ‘retrospect’, I concluded was a kind of ‘start to finish’ overview of his life- in retrospect. Convenient. The chapter begins with his six-year-old self, describing how his dad’s video camera looks something of “a toaster with a telescope attached”. Fascinating. Being the six-year-old spring bud that he was, Connor decided to use the telescopic toaster as a substitute person, to which he found himself “talking about nothing for an extended period of time under the presumption that I am funny”. No change there then *wink*. The whole chapter originates from this point, from the humorous-telescopic-toaster-talker to his ultimate dream- talking into a slightly less telescopic, less toaster-like object, still presuming he is funny (also, *wink*).

  • Innovative creators“-

*Googles exact and precise definition of ‘innovative’* He in himself is an ‘innovative creator’ for writing the damn book. No-one in the world has ever started work, made progress with whatever it is he or she is doing, and called it what is it- a work in progress. New, original, and somehow creative. Yes, I got those words from the Google definition. emptylighthouse.com_


Thank you for reading, looking at the pictures, or whatever it was you came here for…I appreciate it! In case my somewhat O.T.T sarcasm clouded my true opinion of the book…I DAMN LOVE IT. It is a truly uplifting read; I cannot recommend this enough.

LETS BE FRIENDS (INTERNET LIKE) | TEAM UP

So, upon starting this magnificent specimen of a blog account (*cue huffs of sarcasm*) from the convenient location of my bedroom, I over-enthusiasticly expected 50,000 views a day and a minimum or 5,000 likes on each blog…okay slight exaggeration but guess what? IT DIDN’T HAPPEN! Funny that…

I am now (4 weeks) older and (4 weeks) wiser, and able to understand the slow pace at which life and progress happens in this world, and realise I must seek alternate approaches. Approach 1: spend 24 hours a day begging for follows (sorry if you are one of many victims I have once targeted), or more preferably, approach 2: team up with another account at a similar stage.

When I say “team up” I do not meant merging accounts because (a) that is technologically impossible and (b) I am too selfish to go half. I simply mean we support each other along our journeys to world wide international internet fame. Well almost. My idea of this would entail becoming internet acquaintances (friendship comes next, obviously), bouncing ideas of one another and growing our account together. Perhaps this would mean liking/commenting on each others blogs (to make us seem vaguely popular), and giving suggestions as to our next blog topic.

If anyone is interested, please leave a comment below or if you are the shy type, email sjasmine02@hotmail.com or contact one of the social media links situated somewhere near the location of this blog- I have no idea where hence the next to non-existent explanation.


The lack of comments is clearly due to my deletion of all previous contact, obviously (*cries to self*).

If you have, haven’t or even never will read this blog, I thank you anyway.
