Everyone needs a Leslie Knope in their life. They need a friend who is going to shoot to be an overachiever, a work-a-holic, and a tiny bit dramatic. However, sometimes you don't have that friend, but you are that friend.

1. "If I had to have a stripper's name, it would be Equality!"

It's always important for you to stand up in what you believe in. Even stripper's need equal rights, so keep on stripping Equality!

2. "We have to remember what's important in life. Friends, waffles, and work. Or waffles, friends, and work. But work has to come third."

Work should never take first place. As sad as it may sound, they can always find someone to fill your spot, but you can't always find a friend good enough. Waffles will always be there for you no matter what. Waffles will always come before work.

3. "I stand behind my decision to avoid salad and other disgusting things."

I am a firm believer in the motto "Treat Yo-Self." Salad can be pretty disgusting, especially alone. I don't want to offend all of the salad lovers out there, but it's not the most popular food, and it definitely should be avoided.

4. "Slowing down is not really my jam."

Living life in the fast lane is one of the best things you could do. Don't slow down, only if it's to stop and smell the roses. Other than that, keep on trucking.

5. "What I hear when I'm being yelled at is people caring loudly at me."

It's best for you to look on the bright side of things. It's smart for you to listen to that and choose to find the careful words in what they're saying. The criticism is there for you to get better.

6. "I could retire! But I wouldn't - I'm going to work until I'm 100. Then I'll cut back to four days a week."

Just a reminder not to spread yourself too thin and to give yourself a few days off here and there. Keep doing what you love as long as you can though, you'll appreciate it in the long run.

7. "Hey Leslie, it's Leslie. Hang in there. I love you. Bye."

Everyone needs some motivation to keep going through the motions. A lot of the time, most people have a support system to be that motivation. However, it's important for you to recognize when you need a little bit of a boost or even some help.

8. "I am big enough to admit that I am often inspired by myself."

It's important that you're inspired by yourself. You should be the only person you need to inspire you to push your limits.

9. "Sophisticated with a hint of slutty."

Don't lose who you are when you get caught up in life. Show just enough of yourself out to the world, but keep just a little bit a secret.

10. "I am a Goddess, a glorious female warrior."

Stand in front of a mirror and repeat three times to have Leslie Knope say this to your face. Or just repeat it to yourself to keep your spirits up.

11. "You are a brilliant, talented, powerful musk ox."

It doesn't matter what animal you want to think of yourself as, but no matter what, you are brilliant, talented, and powerful. Even if you're feeling like a mouse.

"Alexa, play "Burnin' Up" by the Jonas Brothers."

In case you missed it, the Jonas Brothers are back together and, let me tell you, they're giving us some major jams. For those of us who were there when it all began back in 2007 with their first album, It's About Time, this has been one of the most important events of the year. But nothing, and I mean nothing can rival the excitement every twenty-something felt as the Jonas Brothers announced their Happiness Begins tour. I, for one, put my name in for ticket presale, have been following every single social media site related to the tour/group, and, of course, listening to the Jonas Brothers on repeat. And if you did manage to snag tickets, then you know that this is how your brain has been ever since they announced the tour.

1. Finding out that they're going on tour

2. Hopefully entering your name into the lottery to get presale tickets

3. Finding out that you actually get to buy presale tickets

4. Impatiently waiting for your presale tickets by listening to their songs on repeat

5. And remembering how obsessed you used to be (definitely still are) with them

6. Trying to coordinate the squad to go to the concert with you

7. Waiting in the Ticketmaster waiting room...

8. ...And feeling super frantic/frustrated because there are about 2000 people in line in front of you

9. Actually getting into the site to buy the tickets

10. Frantically trying to find seats you can actually pay for because, let's be real, you're twenty-something and poor

11. Managing to actually get the seats you want

12. Joyfully letting your squad know that you've done it

13. Crying a little because all of the dreams you've had since 2007 are coming true

14. Listening to every single Jonas Brothers song on repeat (again)

If you, like me, have finally fulfilled one of your dreams since childhood, then congrats, my friend! We've made it! Honestly, of all the things I've done in my adult life, this might be the one that child me is the most proud of.

The 7 Best Food Places Near UCLA You Need to Try ASAP

We have great dining food AND restaurants around us? Wow, we are #blessed.

Westwood is the home to UCLA and offers plenty of interesting and diverse dining options for students and locals alike. Since the area is firmly Bruin territory, you will find lots of on-the-go, affordable eats along with a mix of more modern and upscale restaurants.

Though I definitely haven't had all the food Westwood occurs, being here two years now (omg already!?), I think I can safely recommend certain places to eat.

1. Shamshiri Grill

South Westwood Boulevard is often referred to as Little Tehran, so most of that area is just Persian restaurants. Shamshiri Grill just makes the best meat and whenever I go there, I always order my meal with their special hot sauce, that is to DIE for. A must try.

2. Gushi

I can not tell you how many times I've been to this place. Located near Fat Sal's, you may be tempted to just miss it but let me tell you that is a mistake. I always get their Gushi Bowl which is just heavenly and the right amount to make me feel satisfied without being too filling. Be generous with the Teriyaki and Sriracha sauces on your meat and you are guaranteed to have a good time.

3. Pinches Tacos

I know Mexican food is very common wherever you go but Pinches Tacos is aesthetically pleasing and their food? Even more so. It just tastes so good! I definitely recommend the Asada fries and any tacos.

4. Saffron and Rose

Saffron and Rose is a Persian ice cream parlor like 10 minutes away from Shamshiri Grill and the quality and variety of ice cream is truly impressive. I would not have known my weakness for Jasmine ice cream if I hadn't tried this place and as always, the Saffron and Rose (it's namesake) deserves to be the name of the restaurant because of how rich in flavor it is.

5. Maharaja

I am very particular about my Indian food but the buffets in the afternoons at Maharaja definitely passes my checklist. I actually went there for my birthday so that just tells you how the food doesn't disappoint.

6. Nekter Juice Bar

I found out about this place very recently and I'm so glad I did because their bowls are so good. They also serve smoothies which I haven't had the pleasure to taste yet but I expect the same kind of quality. I am very partial to the Bruin Bowl and the Dragonfruit Bowl.

7. BJs

They have $3 Pizookies on Tuesday.

I am always there on Tuesday.

Are these two facts connected? Maybe.

What can I say? I just love the restaurants here.
