True Life: April Ludgate is My Spirit Animal

If anyone is like me, binge-watching Netflix comes as a second talent. But out of all the rom-coms, medical-dramas, and docu-series, there is one show I come back to over and over again: Parks and Recreation. Yeah, it's a little dry at first and Leslie Knope makes me cringe once in a while, but the show itself has one of the most well-written scripts, not for just their main characters, but their secondary characters as well. I'm talking about Andy Dwyer, Tom Haverford, Chris Traeger, and the most under-looked character of all, April Ludgate, She is every-twenty something girl's inner spirit animal, and with every continuing season she proves exactly why.

1.She gets that your $80 bottle of pinot grigio can never out best a bottle of Barefoot. And spending even five minutes smelling it is a waste of time, and your dignity.

2. People suck, we all feel that way, and hence why we replace people with puppies.

3. When we get annoyed by people, alcohol is not the answer. It is the question, and the answer is yes.

4.Obligations to be places where we have no desire to be are BS.

5. She understands the way we act when we go out.

6. The outdoors suck...and aren't reliable when it comes to necessary Starbucks runs.

7. Work sucks too, in fact anything that doesn't involve Netflix and our beds does.

8. We don't understand the 30, 31st rule...and probably never will.

9. When we meet our person, we do actually care.

10. She is just as weird as our inner selves.

11. We bribe our siblings, and will until we die.

12. Money will always be the motivator.

Christmas traditions

The Holidays are a time for being with friends and family and celebrating the birth of Christ, but sometimes we forget to acknowledge the other religions and what they celebrate. Some religions like the Islam do not even celebrate Christmas and then you have others, the Buddhists, who use the holiday to practice their religion of spreading peace and goodwill. In no particular order, I would like to demonstrate a little culture about the ways Christmas is celebrated or is not celebrated throughout five different religions.
