Who doesn't love Mindy Kaling?

I just finished reading her book Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (and other concerns) and it was so good! It was hilarious, seriously, I have never laughed out loud so much from reading a book. Its basically a collection of essays crossed with a memoir, following her life from childhood. I can't even begin to explain how much respect I gained for Mindy after reading her book. She is pure talent, and didn't have the road to success paved for her, she worked for it, and eventually got the recognition she deserved. 

The Office is basically my all-time favorite show, and Mindy (Kelly on the show) I always found to be hilarious, even though she was one of the background characters. After I read the book, I realized she wrote/directed some of my favorite episodes, and we both share the same favorite, Fun Run (Season 2 Ep. 1). 

I pretty much binge watched the entire 2 seasons of The Mindy Project and have probably seen each episode 3+ times. She nails it as her character, and now that I've read her book, I see that she works more to bring out her actual real-life qualities in this show, unlike in The Office where she portrayed a tabloid-crazy girly girl.

Mindy emphasizes the power of being true to yourself, doing what you love, and having confidence.

She shouldn't just be your favorite actress, but a role model to us all.


  1. I love The Office too! Been meaning to check out this book, but it's officially going on my 'to read' list now.
