I'm not sure if this is true for you, but I am a goddess, a glorious female warrior. Queen of all I survey. Enemies of fairness and equality, hear my womanly roar: 🗣️YAHHHHHHH!
I'm a huge Parks and Recreation fan. I've watched the full series multiple times. I celebrate Galentine's Day. I'm an honorary member of the Pawnee Goddesses.
But most of all, I love Leslie Knope. In fact, I crushed the Leslie Knope Test, which I adapted from author Noah Fleming's Walter White Workshop.
This exercise asks that you take 3-4 minutes writing a detailed description of the life of your favorite television character. Then flip the paper and spend 3-4 minutes writing the same narrative for your most loyal student/client/customer.
His findings were that "almost always, we know more about the people we watch on television after work than the people we're charged with serving on a daily basis." The series finales of both Parks and Recreation and Breaking Bad have come and gone. If you had any unanswered questions after the credits rolled, the best you can do now is speculate.
In real life, the great news is you can check in with your favorite characters on a regular basis to better understand their dreams, desires, passions, and pain points. You have the power to let them know regularly- as Leslie Knope would say- "I love you, and I like you."
