Crowdsourcing Mornings: Unf*ck Your Adulting & This Is Your Brain On Depression


This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

Unf*ck Your Adulting teaches you to be an adultier adult. You won’t find in-depth housekeeping or oil changing instructions here—instead, they have a book full of short, straight-to-the-point chapters with titles like:

  • Don’t be a dick
  • Stop comparing your insides to other people’s outsides
  • Do you actually like the shit you say you like?
  • Give yourself permission
  • Listen to understand, not to respond
  • You win or you learn

There’s so much more. And it’s so good. The book is based on a much-shorter little zine that was incredibly popular. A 9-year old bought one, and an 80-year-old bought one, and everyone in between—we can all use some more adulting skills in a world that sure isn’t handing them to us.

This is Your Brain on Depression combines Dr. Faith’s trademark blend of neuroscience and cussing to guide you through that heaviest of mental maladies. You’ll learn:

  • What depression actually is
  • What triggers depression
  • The different kinds of depression
  • And most important: ways to get better

This book started out as a zine by the same name, which became a chapter of Unf*ck Your Brain and has now morphed again into this book; in the process it’s been greatly added to, edited and expanded—it’s a whole new thing, now.

As of June 26th, this project has raised $22,000 of their $7,500 goal. This project has 2 days left to raise as much as it can. For a pledge of $10, you will get one copy of either book.  For a pledge of $20, you will get a copy of both books.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to:  https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/microcosmpublishing/unf-ck-your-adulting-and-this-is-your-brain-on-dep
