“More cornbread for me”

Nancy cartoonist Olivia Jaimes, in an interview, commenting on the hashtag relatable and webcomics:

The self-hating part that often comes with #relatable comics is being like, “Ohhhh, I procrastinated, I’m the worst.” And Nancy adds one more panel to that, being like, “Who cares? I don’t care. More cornbread for me.”
As readers of the new Nancy will remember, Jaimes began her work on the strip with Nancy eating cornbread.

[I’ve changed the spelling in the interview to match the spelling in the strip: cornbread, no space.]

I want to make this my mantra:
"Who cares? I don't care. More cornbread for me."

I had five days off work, over Thanksgiving, and when I went back I felt lighter:
on my way to work, I thought to myself, "I don't care," and it felt like liberation, not negation.

That’s great. I thought you’d like this one. It reminds me of a story that I’m going to look up and post tomorrow.
