Read Note to Self Online Free - In his New York Times bestselling memoir, A Work in Progress, Connor Franta shared his journey from small-town Midwestern boy to full-fledged Internet sensation. Exploring his past with humor and astounding insight, Connor reminded his fans of why they first fell in love with him on YouTube—and revealed to newcomers how he relates to his millions of dedicated followers.
Now, two years later, Connor is ready to bring to light a side of himself he’s rarely shown on or off camera. In this diary-like look at his life since A Work In Progress, Connor talks about his battles with clinical depression, social anxiety, self-love, and acceptance; his desire to maintain an authentic self in a world that values shares and likes over true connections; his struggles with love and loss; and his renewed efforts to be in the moment—with others and himself.
Told through short essays, letters to his past and future selves, poetry, and original photography, Note to Self is a raw, in-the-moment look at the fascinating interior life of a young creator turning inward in order to move forward.

No había oído hablar de Connor Franta hasta que compré este libro. Lo sé, para alguien que pasa tanto tiempo en internet me entero de muy poco. La cosa es que cuando vi este libro en la estantería de la librería no me acerqué a él porque fuese el libro de un personaje público, sino porque, pese a...

It feels like I wrote this. Like, these are my thoughts. If for some reason you ever want an insight into my head, read this. This book is me in a nutshell.
I will definitely be going back to reread this time and time again.

This really got 3 1/2 stars for me. I'm gonna talk about it in my video today, but basically I wanted a bit more from it then I got. Still, it is beautiful with the photography and poetry interspersed which is why... 4ish stars

Cliched, self-pitying, self-indulgent-and-bordering-on-narcissistic, tortured artist type dribble wrapped in pastel colours and unoriginal photography. Next.

Oh, Connor. This was... buddy, this was just not your finest work. I read A Work in Progress two years ago (or something like that), and adored how it was so authentically Connor. The tone, the wording, the pictures. It was like seeing a printed version of one of his videos. It was surprisingly t...

why should I care to read a six page letter to Franta's older self?
an extremely self-indulgent book by the author.
however, great pictures, lovely poems and some interesting introspective ideas to think about.

Instead of writing a review, I'm just going to display some of the more egregious lines:
- [addressing himself] "You're a soulful guy, and you have to trust your instinct to lead you forward the same way Waze navigates drivers around Los Angeles."
- [addressing himself again] "You're a bud covered...
