Can we just take a moment to appreciate Lena Dunham and all the amazing things she's accomplished in the 27 years she's been on this planet? Ever since Tiny Furniture came up on our Netflix instant-watch list, we've been obsessing over the GIRLS actress and plotting how we can meet her. 

Here are 23 reasons we just can't get enough Lena Dunham in our life:

She's not afraid to call out haters who attack her body image:

She's naked in almost every episode of GIRLS ... and anyone who has a problem with that can STFU:

She is a huge fan of the Archie comics and was excited when they offered her a four-part story:

She tweets amazing things like: "To the girl who works at Starbucks who just told a customer 'we're out of coffee' then started humming the Daria theme song: I salute you."

And this: "Who, you ask, turns the AC on during a polar vortex? Sociopaths, fascist dictators, my boyfriend."

Even though none of the GIRLS characters are likable (except Ray), some of the topics hit really close to home:
