The story written with a lot of humor focuses on Bridget, who was convinced that everybody understands perfectly beside her. Her romantic life is in the state of perpetual crisis. At the beginning of the New Year, Bridget decides it’s time to take control over her life and starts keeping a journal: ‘Resolution number one: obviously, will lose twenty pounds. Number two: will find nice sensible boyfriend and not continue to form romantic attachments to alcoholics, workaholics, peeping-toms, megalomaniacs, emotional fuckwits or perverts’.
