Brittani’s Team Pick
Parks and Recreation writer Aisha Muharrar profiles a fictional girl in her hilarious version of a women’s magazine interview. Muharrar is part of the “going barefoot but still hunching your shoulders movement” that from all indications has no traction and is something I just made up based on a tweet. Regardless, the humor piece shines as it subtly mocks the magazines she probably subscribes to because how can you turn down the option to renew when it’s 67% off the cover price, ya know?
When she first moved to this city, she lived in a small two-bedroom apartment that she shared with the cousin of a college friend. Now, five years later, her living arrangements remain the same. Could this really be the same girl who once made a plate of nachos to bring to a Super Bowl party, then stayed home and ate them all by herself while watching a Lizzie McGuire marathon? She nods, remembering those nachos. “I still can’t believe my life. I mean, I really thought I’d be using my graduate degree.”
