MAN OH MAN

what a lucky lady I am.

I get to live my actual dream at this internship in a city that makes me feel like I’ve finally found the right place for me. I’m taking improv classes and I’ve made wonderful new friends. I get to see the people I love here all the time. I watch shows constantly, and I love the people I live with and the area we live in. I am inspired, I am energized, I’m HAPPY. My friends back home make me excited to come back even though I know how hard it will be to leave.

I think about my 8th Floor family constantly - they have part of my heart all the time. My real family supports me in ways they didn’t support me before, which is exciting. I’m really eager for the future, but I’m so happy that right now I can live in the present. For the first time I am not constantly planning, I’m just enjoying all of the wonderful gifts I get to experience constantly. I love my life!

I used to work for a woman who had been an agent… And I was asking her why there weren’t more women in general who were writers. And she said, “Well, I can tell you one thing which is that when I told men that their writing wasn’t good enough they would go out and prove me wrong. They would say, ‘Oh, I’ll show you.’ And when I told women their writing wasn’t good enough they’d believe me.”

Parks And Recreation is criminally underrated and one of the best ensembles on TV. They figured out how to make comedy out of people who like things, as opposed to the usual sitcom where it’s just people being awful to each other. Turns out passion can heighten things in the same way that conflict does. And that delights me.
