14 Times April Ludgate Was Real As Hell On ‘Parks & Recreation’

If you’ve ever cringed because your coworker was speaking too loud in the morning, or awkwardly tried to evade a well-meaning hug, then you probably identify with Parks and Recreation‘s most dour-yet-lovable City of Pawnee employee, April Ludgate.

April is the character who reminds us that it’s okay to admit that you prefer animals to human beings. It’s okay to believe that small talk with strangers is a fate worse than death. It’s okay to access your inner spooky witch and put hexes on people.

Because sometimes, being sunny is overrated, and you need to wallow in your gloom.

Here are just a few of April’s most quotable quotes — and her moments which celebrated our more introverted sides, and encouraged us to stay weird as f*ck.
