Parks and Recreation Supplemental Post: Ann Perkins

Via Gifrific
I'm going to start with Ann Perkins here because, well ... in my life and circle of friends, I am Ann. At first, I resented this because I'm not really the straight man kind of character that Ms. Perkins is - seriously, just ask my friends - but as I reexamined the character, I had that mindblowing realization that a big part of the reason I initially had issues with her was because I identified strongly with her series arc.

In which I decide to overload myself ...

Well, I cannot stay not busy to save my life, apparently. Last month, I did another challenge - and I, if I do say so myself, was very pleased with the results and even finished on time! - at the same time I was working 50 - 60 hours at two jobs, and this month is going to be spent prepping for what is coming next month: NaNoWriMo, or for you laypeople, National Novel Writing Month. Well, that and doing supplemental character posts for my Parks and Rec challenge (which, shit, I really need to start doing those), moving into a new apartment (omg finally*), working, setting up and attending meetings for a paper my friend and I will be starting next year, collecting pieces for my Halloween costume**, getting CPR, ACE Fitness, and pharmacy technician certified, painting a new watercolor/mixed media series, and reworking my pilot script, so yeah, it's going to be a little crazy.

30 Day Parks and Recreation Challenge, Day 30: How Parks and Recreation Inspires Me

Parks and Recreation will hold a special place in my heart for the rest of my life. It has such a dedication to its persistent sunny optimism that it will always bring a smile to my face, even on my worst days. I'll will perpetually do the math to see what percentage Ann Perkins I am in direct to relation as to how much my best friend is Leslie, and I'll forever try to find my real-world Donna.

30 Day Parks and Recreation Challenge, Day 29: Favorite Tom Moment

Via Odyssey
Tom Haverford is probably the character that changes the most over the course of seven seasons of Parks and Recreation. I mean, he's still obsessed with being a ... baller? Can I say that without sounding tremendously white? I don't think I can. Anyway, as I'll get into on my Tom supplemental post (that's coming next month, in case you were wondering), he starts off as this incredibly bored government worker, which ... yeah, I get that*, but he turns into this motivated guy that, although he does fail several times, he just keeps going, like a metrosexual human version of the Dory song from Finding Nemo. Honestly, despite people fawning over him during the first couple of seasons, I was more annoyed by him, in an Ann-like fashion**, but once he got the opportunity to use his gifts, I was sold. And it doesn't hurt that I adore Aziz Ansari.

30 Day Parks and Recreation Challenge, Day 28: Favorite Donna Moment

Via Reelsistas
I truly do love Donna with every fiber of my being. She's smart, complex, talented, confident, and beautiful, and she steals any scene she's in. I mean, look at that on point lip she's got going on in the above pic; how could she not? Sadly, there aren't many gifs of my two favorite moments - no, I could not narrow it down - but I do have screenshots!

30 Day Parks and Recreation Challenge, Day 27: Favorite Ann Moment

Via Head over Feels
Normally, pregnancy storylines bore me because we know all the moments that are going to be touched on:
  • Finding out the sex of the baby
  • Random crying because hormones
  • How life will change once the baby comes
  • Names
  • I'm getting fat. Will you still like me? 
Feel free to add as many other milestones you can think of to that list, which is obviously not exhaustive. It's a big reason that I was appreciative of the time jump in Parks and Rec's Season 7; the triplets are now toddlers and only minor parts of the show, so we could still focus on the major characters.

30 Day Parks and Recreation Challenge, Day 26: Favorite Andy Moment

Via Thought Catalog
There are so many great Andy Dwyer moments that, again, it's really hard to choose just one of them. I was going to choose the moment when Andy walks like a chimpanzee while wearing Chris' Vibrams because I still laugh like a loony whenever I see that clip, but then I remembered London.

30 Day Parks and Recreation Challenge, Day 25: Favorite Ben Moment

Via Fourth Wall Wyatt
Any time Adam Scott looks into the camera, it brings me joy. The other characters do this, as well, but his incredulous glances are so reminiscent of my own internal reactions to the ridiculous shit that other human beings do that it's impossible not to laugh. Now, you'd think that I would use one of his reactions to whatever antics the other characters are doing as my favorite Ben moment, but you'd be wrong. But it is a type of reaction, only while speaking to the "reality show crew."

30 Day Parks and Recreation Challenge, Day 24: Favorite Chris Moment

Via Not a Federalist
Ah, Chris Traeger, the most perfectly-shaped man in the world who hopes to live to 150 ...

Rob Lowe does such a good job playing a perpetually chipper character, but when he's not at his best, omg I think I love him more. Which is why this is my favorite Chris moment:

30 Day Parks and Recreation Challenge, Day 23: Favorite Leslie Moment

Via Geek Girl Con
In a similar manner to Chris Traeger, Leslie Knope is so much more relatable when she is not necessarily on her A-game, and luckily, we get to see that side of her more often than we do with Chris. I mean, she is the main character, after all.
