15 Leslie Knope Quotes That Will Make Every 'Parks And Rec' Fan Feel Like A Beautiful Tropical Fish
NBC

No matter where you are in life or what is happening, I have come to find one thing to be true through it all: there is a Leslie Knope quote to get you through anything.

"Parks and Recreation" was for sure a gem that will live on through its hilarious gifs and fans who re-watch it every few months (like myself) for a long, long time, but the true wisdom of the show lies in the words of this incredible colorful rainbow tiger of a woman (nope, it only sounds good when Leslie does it).

"I care. I care a lot. It's kinda my thing."

Not caring about anything is not cool. Caring and being conscious of things is cool. Okay?

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

Take time for the important things in life and spend time with those you love and eat all the waffles you want because life is too short not to.

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

Work hard! Inspire yourself! You are a beautiful talented capable powerhouse!

"Why would anyone ever eat anything besides breakfast food?"

Seriously. Probably the wisest one.

"If you want to bake a pie, that's great. If you want to have a career, that's great too."

You can do whatever you want in life. Don't ever feel pressured to be someone just because it's who others think you should be.

"I am a goddess, a glorious female warrior."

Wear your metaphorical tiara everywhere, always, you magical breathtaking princess of a woman.

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

A nightmare? I'm sorry did you mean salad?

"When you love something, you don't threaten it. You don't punish it. You fight for it. You take care of it. You put it first."

Love whatever you love with as much intensity as Leslie loves Ann.

"If I seem too passionate, it's because I am."

Passionate is good!! All the time!!

"One person's annoying is another person's inspiring and heroic."

Be über passionate about what you're uber passionate about and don't let others make you feel like you don't have every single right to be uber passionate about it!

"Do it. Fierce. Power."

"I have the most valuable commodity in America: the blind, stubborn belief that I am doing what is right."

Do what you feel is right, always, and if you need that extra powerful boost to do it, get bangs.

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

New outlook on being yelled at.

"Guys love it when you can show them you are better than they are at something they love."

It's true. They do, and even if they don't, do it anyway.

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

You are beautiful and can do ANYTHING. ALWAYS.

See what I mean, there's a Leslie Knope quote for just about everything, but honestly and seriously, channel your inner Leslie everyday and you can do just about anything.

Where To Find The Best Coffee Drinks In America, According To A Survey

Here's the coffee shop where you should get your morning brew.

187340

Coffee, for billions of people, is one of the only things that can get us out of bed (after hitting snooze a time or two), especially in 2020. Because, if we're being honest, is there anything that beats a quality cup of coffee on those mornings when all we wanted to do is roll over and go back to sleep? The answer is no. And if you're headed to a coffee shop to pick up your caffeinated beverage, you don't want to sleep on the best coffee drinks in America.

According to LiveShopper Sassie's Coffee Project survey, when it comes to chain coffee shops, there are definitely preferred spots you'll want to hit up for your go-to order — whether you order the classic, frozen, or flavored coffee, an espresso, tea, or other. To figure out the hot spots, 1,000 coffee drinkers across the United States took to LiveShopper's mobile app, PrestoShopper, to answer various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

For me, chai isn't just what I drink — it's a core part of who I am. Sure, I'll switch it up every now and then with a cup of English Breakfast, Earl Grey, rose, or Darjeeling, but I always come back to chai.

Nearly every tea lover has one tea they repeatedly drink and go back to, whether it's a daily morning ritual or an afternoon pick-me-up. One of my good friends has almost eight cups of jasmine tea every single day — she drinks more tea than water, actually.

1117

When my college announced that we would be having the fall 2020 semester on-campus, I was pretty excited. After six months of living at home with my parents with nothing to do, my study abroad trip in May canceled, and my 21st birthday plans down the drain, going back to campus meant that I would regain some of my individuality and see my friends again. But since we've returned, it has not been as fun as I had hoped my senior year of college would be.

When it comes to coffee, everyone has different criteria for what goes into their "perfect cup." Some caffeine lovers, though, are extra particular when it comes to their beloved beverage.

LiveShopper Sassie, the company behind this Coffee Project survey, received input from 1,000 coffee drinkers via their mobile app, PrestoShopper, to ask various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences.
