In Her Defense, It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time...

Although Anna Goldfarb is very tall, she can't seem to grow up. While her friends lead lives seemingly plucked out of the pages of an Ikea catalog, she is still trying to figure out where she’ll score this week’s beer money.

Maturity used to be something she aspired to, but as a woman in her early thirties, it is finally time for her to take a good hard look in the mirror and ask herself, “Is adulthood really for me?”

Clearly, I Didn't Think this Through chronicles Anna's hilarious attempts to get her love life, career, and living situation under control. But, the more she tries to conform to where she thinks she should be, the harder it is for her to get there. Can't a tall, busty, smart brunette get a break?

Anna has been called Philadelphia's "most popular dating blogger" by Philadelphia Weekly. Her blog Shmitten Kitten is a cult phenomenon. She likes thinking, eating tacos, holding hands, and pondering whether she could eat a taco while still holding hands. Yes, she still lives with her parents, but she will lie and say she lives in South Philly if you happen to be a hot guy.
