Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Sometimes you just don't feel like going to work. Or making any effort at all, really. Or hearing one more person tell you to “Have a great day!”-seriously, what's so great about it? Everything Is the Worst is the tongue-in-cheek gift of anti-inspiration, a collection of gorgeously hand-lettered expressions revealing what most of us really know, deep in our hearts, to be true. It's the flip side of the happy face emoji-a recognition that life sucks. It's the sighing resignation of “I need a nap.” The annoyed dismissiveness of “can you not though.” The utter indifference of “leave me alone, k.” The badass attitude of “in a Mood.” All made palatably hilarious through the kind of illustration we've become accustomed to seeing on everything warm and fuzzy. The juxtaposition is perfect; you'll never look at inspirational art the same way again.
Interspersed throughout is fun supporting text, like lists (“Things that are really f*cking hard,” “It's OK to give up when...”), scientifically proven facts, and more. Did you know that people who procrastinate actually make better decisions? Finally, a legit excuse not to do a damn thing.
Subject: Self-realization.
Satire, American.
American wit and humor.
