Women’s Magazine Profile of a Normal Girl

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.”

Brittani Nichols is a Los Angeles based comedy person. When she's not tweeting about white people or watching television, she's probably eating pizza. Actually, she's probably doing all three of those things concurrently and when she's not doing THAT, she's sleeping. Brittani also went to Yale and feels weird about mentioning it but wants you to know.
