The holidays are upon us, and in the true spirit of the season here is a survey that seeks to plumb the depths of your stress, malaise, and general unhappiness. The survey below was inspired by Jason Porters short story “We Were Down,” which you can read starting Christmas Day at Recommended Reading.
Recommended Reading is free every week online, and available as an iPhone app.
The author of the saddest survey — judged by Jason Porter — will receive a free phone session with a life coach, a bottle of gin from the NY Distilling Company, and a copy of Jason’s Books Why Are You So Sad?/em> The contest ends Friday, December 27 at 11:59 PM, so share your sadness now.
