#WCW: Amy Poehler

With the the recent finale of Parks and Rec, I'm seriously mourning the loss of my fictional best friend, Leslie Knope. If everyone radiated a little bit more Knope in their day-to-day, the world would be a much more kind and productive place.  And if we don't up-the-Knope for ourselves, we should do it for each other!  Everyone needs a Leslie-like, militantly inspirational homie to push and support them. But, maybe a little bit less political. So basically, Amy Poehler.  Homegirl is a force of positive energy and I'm in love with her...

… because the most crush-worthy quality is humor. And intelligence. And definitely kindness. Also, style. Being completely gorgeous and having an extremely high natural eyebrow arch is also a thing. Seriously, if she wasn't always smiling, she would look mad as hell. There's a certain fierceness that comes along with an angry set of brows on a very happy face. Perf.

Do yourself a favor, and binge read her book, Yes, Please. Comedy or self-help, I'm not really sure, but it's easily the most quotable memoir in recent history. Obviously hilarious, and obviously everything you need to get you through life. She kills it. 

Best summed up as: Be awesome to everyone, but especially to yourself! I can get behind that.

"Find a group of people who challenge and inspire you, spend a lot of time with them, and it will change your life."  She should know, her best friend is TINA FEY.  They are a prime example of a ride or die power duo that has seriously pushed and pulled each other up the ladder of success.  The key to success is support and collaboration, not being a jerk.  Why compete with someone, when you can just host the Golden Globes together and be amazing and have fun? And Baby Mama was one of the most underrated films of all time. There, I said it. "Bitch, I don't know your life!" is my most used movie quote. Mostly in my inner monologue though, because it's just as much rude as it is relevant.

I really do, Amy!
