"Do you take pride in your hurt? Does it make you seem large and tragic? Well, think about it. Maybe you’re playing a part on a great stage with only yourself as audience."

I was watching The Office on Netflix, and suddenly music from White Christmas started playing, and I was like, “That’s an interesting choice.”
It turns out my Spotify was playing.
P.S. pls don’t judge me bc I was listening to the White Christmas soundtrack in March. It’s just a really good movie, ok?
"I love the sweat of the South. I love the drawl. I love the pork lard. I love the too much salt and too much sweet. I love the humidity. There is a patina on Southerners. I think it is because of our very dynamic history. There’s a lot of pain that has happened in our history; a lot of mistakes that have been made. [But] an unfortunate circumstance can turn into an opportunity for greatness. I think the South is great because of all of the trying times, the tensions, hardships, wars, and riots. All those things really make a place…well, for me it makes it home. There is a grace in every sorrow. I think that is being Southern."

This season of Parks and Rec is not nearly as funny as previous ones. It’s so disappointing. One of the main problems, in my opinion, is Ben and Leslie’s relationship. It has gotten so sappy since they married. In the beginning, the appeal of Ben was his reserve, but now he’s so obvious. On the anniversary episode last night, so much of the crap he did was completely uncharacteristic for his original character. It’s just boring now.
