Jess Day has to be the quirkiest character to ever be on television. But it works. Jess is the role model of geeky girls everywhere. She is certainly strange and has some incredibly annoying habits (like turning every phrase that goes through her head into a song). The thing is, Jess doesn't care. She knows who she is and she's not afraid to show it.
New Girl started off with Jess Day going through a tough time, dealing with a break-up from her long-term boyfriend. However, rather than remaining mopey forever, Jess allows herself to try new things, to be herself, to make every day a positive one. It's a lesson we can all learn - remaining positive will make things easier.
Jess is also oddly charming. She may have flaws, but he doesn't act like it. She embraces her thick bangs, the bold glasses, the bright prints because she has confidence. If there's one thing to take away from Jess Day, it's to believe in yourself - always - and to spend each waking moment celebrating the uniqueness of you.
