30 Lessons I’ve Learned From New Girl

New-Girl_612x380In 2011, FOX premiered New Girl, a show revolving around Jess Day (Zooey Deschanel – a bubbly school teacher by day and party animal by night – as she tries to navigate her way through Los Angeles as a 20something alongside her three male roommates, Schmidt (Max Greenfield), Winston (Lamorne Morris) and Nick (Jake Johnson). Over the past three years, TheUrbanRealist has picked up a few things (okay, a lot of things) from New Girl and we’re can’t wait to share it with you!
