Step one: Do not just throw away your job. Have a back up plan.
Step two: If you are going to fool around with your sexy guitar teacher than at least make sure you are single. If you are in a relationship, you are going to get caught sooner or later unless you want to get caught.
Step three: Play in a rock band if you get the chance.
Step four: Let loose and have fun. It is your life. Don't have regrets as each stumbling step will only make you stronger.
While, I did find Jessica's story intriguing, I do admit that at times, I did grow a little bored and skimmed parts to flash forward. Someone that really amazed me was Andrew. Jessican's ex-husband. He was either a saint or naive. He had to have known that Jessica was hooking up with Gideon, her instructor. I believe that Andrew was a saint. He knew about Jessica but in his heart, he wanted to say that he did try. Although, I can not fully applaud Jessica as what she did was selfess trying to find herself but not breaking up with Andrew first. I felt that she should have let him go. She knew way before she met Gideon that their relationship was over. Gideon was like a drug for Jessica but without him like Jessica states, she may have not had the courage to try new things and experience the world in a whole new light. Klonopin Lunch is a raw look into author, Jessica Dorfman Jones's life. She holds nothing back in this book.
