I also have found that I don't dislike any of the characters, which is unusual for me. Sometimes Anne gets on my nerves, but I still love her. I love them all! Since binge-watching the entire series like a month ago, I have come to the conclusion that if April Ludgate and Ron Swanson were morphed into one person, that person would be me. (Also April and Andy = me and Jared. For real.)
Here's the evidence.
April! I also hate talking...to people...about things. I really do! One time in college I went for like three straight days without talking to anyone. Which, when I write it, sounds pretty freakin' pathetic, but at the time it was really kind of cool.
This goes hand in hand with the previous one, but for real. I so prefer dogs to people. They're so much better. I, like April, try to avoid group activities at all costs, and the "get to know ya" portion of starting a new job is basically my Everest. Also, this one time in yoga class, the instructor said we were going to do some partner yoga...and I faked a coughing fit, rolled up my mat, and left. People, man! They make me anxious!
My goal in life is basically to sit at home, in my bed, under a blanket, and write and read books. If I could get paid for doing that, my life would be complete, and it would also be a little bit smelly and bloated and full of bedsores. I love not doing things. It's my favorite hobby. (To any prospective employers reading this, I'm totally kidding. Doing things is the best! And also I love people!)
Classic Ron Swanson. At some restaurants, you get a salad automatically included in the meal price. I always ask if I can get a dessert instead. They always say no. I don't understand how people eat lettuce. I just don't. How do you do it? I can taste ONE SINGLE SHRED of lettuce in a taco, burger, what have you. ONE SHRED and all its leafy, grass-tasting, slimy grossness. Lettuce is food that my food consumes.
Word. Since I graduated high school, I haven't made much of an effort to make friends. (And who wouldn't want to be my friend, I'm so friendly and people-loving!) I have always been pretty content with just my family, Jared, and myself. That might become an issue later on in my life...hopefully not. But for right now, I am perfectly fine with what I've got. :)
Ahem...Jared. Who would probably marry both skim milk and lettuce if he had his way. Sicko.
Also Jared. I'm a pretty pessimistic person (though I like to think of it as realistic :) ) and I am kind of cynical, but he can make me pretty darn happy. So Jared, I guess I kind of hate most things (lettuce, perky people, people who whistle, the word "moist", when the plastic over top of the jar of peanut butter rips weird), but I never really seem to hate you (just stop leaving half-empty water bottles all over the house). :)
Oh, also this:
