Did you ever do that thing with your friends where you all sit around and decide which characters you each are from a certain TV show? (Friends is the classic example. I'm Chandler.) I recently re-watched the entire of Miranda, followed by some new episodes of New Girl, and realised that my personality basically boils down to this diagram:
(Yes, I made the diagram.)
I've been told in the past that I could be the child of Chuck and Ned from Pushing Daisies and yes, that is the biggest compliment I have ever received and I will absolutely take it, but if I am completely honest with myself, that would not be the most accurate diagram. The most accurate diagram is the one above, that I lovingly made especially to illustrate this point: my entire personality is basically just a strange mixture of Miranda from Miranda and Nick from New Girl. In my heart I know this to be true. Also, I have proof.
Exhibit A: How I tend to (not) deal with my problems.
I lived with my friend Jess for three years and she will attest to the amount of times I seem to think that lying on the floor will fix things. It rarely does.
Exhibit B: My idea of a good time.
I literally went to a club once and decided that was quite enough of that for me. I'll take a quiet night in every time.
Exhibit C: How I feel about getting older.
Being a teenager always felt so ridiculous to me and for years now I've been saying that I think I'll probably hit my stride somewhere in my 50s.
Exhibit D: My approach to writing.
Again, just ask Jess how many times I have literally compared myself to Hemingway. She bought me a hip flask for my 21st birthday so that I could continue the theme. And, just like Nick, I have still yet to write The Sun Also Rises.
I have made use of the hip flask though.
If you've never thought about your personality as a venn diagram of fictional characters then I highly recommend you do it right now and let me know which characters you would use for your diagram in the comments!
