Things I learned from Tina Fey:
- “Do your thing and don’t care if they like it.”
- “Don’t waste your energy trying to educate or change opinions; go over, under, through.”
- “When people say, “You really, really must” do something, it means you don’t really have to. No one ever says, “You really, really must deliver the baby during labor.” When it’s true, it doesn’t need to be said.”
- “When faced with sexism, or ageism, or lookism, or even really aggressive Buddhism, ask yourself the following question: “Is this person in between me and what I want to do?” If the answer is no, ignore it and move on. Your energy is better used doing your work and outpacing people that way.”
And a whole thing on cruises:
- Cruises are for people who are afraid of flying.
- The entertainment staff are in charge of running the life raft in the event of an emergency.
- Those staff have guns and can shoot people who freak out on said life rafts.
