A celebration of the ladies who empower us from the small screen, both past and present. In no particular order.
Awesome list. I’d add my favorites Carrie Mathison and Claire Dunphy for a full 45. Among others. A few years ago, Rachel Berry and Quinn Fabray. Though mostly I’m just happy Carrie Bradshaw’s not on the list.
"Do you perceive you live your life through love or fear? They are very different manifestations. My favorite quote is by the English novelist Iris Murdoch. She said, “Love is the very difficult understanding that something other than yourself is real.” I like the idea that all that love is, is acknowledging another’s reality."
Song: “Landslide” by Fleetwood Mac (Analog Mix)
Iris’ quote really strikes me. I think a big part of coming of age is this realization that there is a world outside each of us, and figuring out what people and ideas and causes within it we do care about in addition to ourselves. The Fleetwood Mac remix is also very resonant.
On one thing most physicists agree. If the amount of dark energy in our universe were only a little bit different than what it actually is, then life could never have emerged. A little larger, and the universe would have accelerated so rapidly that matter in the young universe could never have pulled itself together to form stars and hence complex atoms made in stars. And, going into negative values of dark energy, a little smaller and the universe would have decelerated so rapidly that it would have recollapsed before there was time to form even the simplest atoms… .
We are an accident. From the cosmic lottery hat containing zillions of universes, we happened to draw a universe that allowed life. But then again, if we had not drawn such a ticket, we would not be here to ponder the odds.

This is super hard for me to write, everyone. I’m so excited to start a brand new chapter in my life, but I’m sad to end the current one. It’s like I’m reading an amazing book, and I’m enjoying it so much that I don’t want to turn the page. Actually… does that make sense? It’s like I’m on…
“The city was a paradox, though maybe it had always been one. You could have an excellent life here, even as everything disintegrated.”
