Good television writers(and I mean truly good ones) have the ability to make their characters relatable to those watching their shows. Some times too relatable. And in this case … it hits super close to home.
About a year ago one of my friends jokingly told me I had Leslie Knope tendencies. I had no idea who the heck Leslie Knope was. That was until I started watching Parks and Recreation.
I AM Leslie Knope…
So I have compiled a list of how I
relate to am Leslie Knope. (This is not exhaustive because you would get exhausted and never read my posts again…)
I know way too much about my home town and could probably write a book about it.
At one point I wanted to be the President of the United States of America.
I had an “April” that worked for me for awhile, and I hugged her … a lot.
Sometimes I do unhealthy things …
There are plenty of other reasons I am compared to Leslie Knope, but these are the best ones for now.
Look out for my next post on how I am also Liz Lemon.
