Gillian Jacobs is doing a series over at Rookie with advice for teen girls. I love Rookie (created by Tavi Gevinson, who I respect immensely) and I also love Jacobs--what could be better?
"Don't stop being the smart girl for anyone, ever."
Jacobs isn't dealing out extreme pearls of wisdom, but it is from the heart and it is very applicable. She talks about her experiences as a high schooler and feeling very lonely. And she does it all without any make up on. It's no secret that I love Community, and Jacobs is reminding me that there's a lot of heart and realness behind that crew over there.
