Over the past year or so, Amy Schumer has emerged as a woman of many talents. Between her accomplishments as a comedian, actress and scriptwriter, she has proven to be an incredible role model. However, she always makes sure to constantly remind us that, despite her overwhelming success, she is just as human as the rest of us.
1. She realizes not everyone’s perfect
Perfection is a myth said to be created as early as prehistoric times, and most of us can’t quite live up to the standards set by its mysterious origins.
2. She knows exactly how to handle awkward social situations
Not all of us are graced with the ability to be social butterflies, and sometimes we manage to get ourselves into situations that are slightly more awkward than we can bare (cue your one-night-stand sitting at the table next to you at brunch with your parents… awk-ward). Although we’re taught that alcohol can’t solve our problems, a drink or 5 can really lighten up the situation, and Amy gets that. She really gets it.
All jokes aside, her ability to find humor in almost any situation is a skill that should really be emulated.
3. She realizes the daily struggle of trying to stay fit
Staying in shape is difficult in a world filled with tacos, ice cream sandwiches and fried, well, basically everything. Especially with the semester coming to an end, and summer beginning to peek out from behind the corner, a lot of us are finding ourselves confused about how time got away so quickly, and why we haven’t been to the gym in 2 weeks.
4. She knows she doesn’t have to be stick thin to look good
It’s 2016, and, as far as Amy is concerned, feelin’ good is lookin’ good, and that’s all right by us.
5. She knows that sometimes time spent alone is a heck of a lot better than socializing
Although a night out with 100 of your closest friends can be fun, nothing is more exciting than sitting at home, by yourself, with your only objective being finishing an entire pizza and binge watching Gossip Girl. Oh, hell yeah.
6. She understands that less is more
Sometimes it’s as simple as that. Is simplicity beauty? We’d like to think so.
7. She shares a mutual love for all things food
There’s no shame in loving some one-on-one time with your favorite pasta dish or a pint of Ben & Jerry’s, and nothing wrong with the fact that your most stable relationship might be with your fridge.
So say yes to that extra drink, bask in the glory of your awkward social encounters, and enjoy eating an entire pizza alone tonight because it turns out you’re way less of a train wreck than you may have thought.
