Ask Me Instead

This is Ask Me Instead, a column in which Gretchen Brown answers your questions about life as a young-ish human.

As a writer, she's asked a lot of smart people about important topics. But as a young-ish human, she's made her own mistakes navigating early adulthood. She'll tell you what she thinks without any judgment but also without any guarantee of success!
