New JR Mural on Bowery; Tina Fey Finally Buys Upstairs Apartment; Fat Raccoons Wrestle in Bronx Chinese Restaurant

Goofball | My most revered idols in life is Tina Fey. To me there is nothing more powerful than a spunky, intelligent lady with a great sense of humor. Growing up watching the cast of Saturday Night Live eventually become dominated by strong female leads inspired me to become a strong independent woman myself. What Tina Fey represents to me is the ability to make the characteristics that usually alienate people into positive characteristics. She is never too embarrassed to go further by constantly poking fun at herself while remaining positive. Finding the funny side of things has been a great way for me to look at life.
