11 Times 'New Girl's' Nick Miller Truly Understood You

If you’ve seen New Girl (and if you’re like me, you've seen it 25+ times), you know that Nick Miller is a painfully relatable character. I found him especially relatable when thinking about how overwhelmed I've been recently. How are you supposed to meet project deadlines at work, maintain relationships, be healthy, sleep, keep your room clean, and make time to cook meals? In recent times especially I'm no stranger to feeling overwhelmed, and neither is Mr. Miller.

Everyone knows that mood when you're so stressed and overwhelmed with all your responsibilities that you just want to give up on everything and order in Chinese food, right? Well here are 11 other times Nick totally got you, too.

Cheers to you, Nick Miller! Thanks for being so relatable, always a little dysfunctional, willing to make fun of yourself, and simultaneously setting the bar so high and also so low. Nick is the ideal character showcasing dysfunctional adulthood, and we can all relate to that right now.
