Empowering slice-of-life drama isn't usually my thing, but this was fairly enjoyable. The writing is fairly good, the implementation is deep enough to be interesting. The subject matter isn't terribly original, but that's an observation rather than a criticism.
Unfortunately, while the PC is well drawn, other characters are stereotypes—The Cheating Boyfriend, The Sexist Boss. Apart from anything else, a boss who was that overtly sexist would have already drawn down the wrath of litigation. It makes the whole thing seem just a little shallow. Even the PC starts out as a fairly shallow person and her transformation into Empowered Woman seems hollow.
That said, it's nice that there is a story to criticise. And there's some lines in the writing that really stand out: "Windex and Pledge and a bottle of Febreze—these are a few of your favorite things."
