I’m going to be the kind of woman who- you know, the kind of woman that just leaps out of bed and just does that, and their hair looks perfect. They then grab a homemade muffin out of their Cath Kidston polka dot biscuit tin and head to work, wearing trainers at the bottom of a skirt suit to show off they’ve power walked in. They have pot plants that don’t die on them. Their fruit bowl isn’t full of three-week-old rotting pears because they actually eat the fruit. They have day bags, evening bags, and a clutch. They just grab a wheatgerm smoothie in between work because that’s enough to keep them going, even though at lunchtime they jogged, and enjoyed it, because they don’t have flesh that moves independently to their main frame. And finally, they have easy access to pens to finish a crossword at a bar where the man they decided to take as a lover the night before says to them, “Hey, last night was great.” You know, I’ll be that kind of woman.
This little girl dressed up as a Batman Princess. Told her mom that she wanted to be batman princess for halloween and her mom was like ok i guess that’s the costume I’m gonna make then. Awesomeness ensued. Not gonna lie, I’m considering being batman princess too.

By the way, you are a beautiful woman. And no one around here has ever assumed you were either ambitious or stupid.
“We take great pains in all the episodes to show how much her friends’ happiness means to her and the crazy lengths that she’ll go to to help her friends when they’re in trouble. Like when Ron is in trouble with his ex-wives, she’ll throw herself on a number of different grenades for him. In the first ever Ron and Tammy episode, Ron saw that happen and it really affected him. It laid the foundation for the rest of their relationship. Part of the theme of the show is if you’re that kind of person, that will come back and help you. That was the whole design of last season for us: When she was in a crisis and her campaign managers pulled out, her friends said, “Screw it, we’ll help you.” That’s the essence of who the character is and the world she inhabits: She’s a person who is so genuinely mindful of the people around her and wants so badly to help them succeed and achieve their goals and dreams that she’s now in a situation where there’s no length to which her friends will not go for her. It’s a little bit of a friend fantasy. She’s what everyone wishes their best friend could be like.” - Mike Schur on Leslie Knope
some friendships are so strong, they can even transcend lifetimes.
Then your dad would act all snide
But he let me hide
You’d be there inside
i hear it’s oppressively hot in the u.s., we should clearly take this opportunity to celebrate one of the great summer romances of our time
#here is my pre-heights headcanon for these two #taking ‘i fell in love on a saturday’ sort of into account bc it’s great #nina totally crushed on benny in middle school (she always had a thing for ~older men~) and wrote bad poetry about him in her journal #but once she started high school she really deliberately washed her hands of a lot of the ~silliness~ of her youth and her crush was supp… #…osedly one of them #(but she still carried a little torch for him) #(MIND OVER MATTER THO) #and it was during her junior/senior year that benny really began to Notice Her because she had really just become this hard working drive… #…n ball of ambition unlike anyone he’d ever known #it was just a lot of emotional constipation and mixed signals and teenage goofiness on both sides tbh #what a pair of goofballs :’) #someone just write a fic about them awkwardly wanting to bone each other so bad but being in huge denial about it #it’s what the world really needs
