read it: is everyone hanging out without me? (and other concerns)

Are you the type of person who has favorite celebrities? Well, I am, and Mindy Kaling is most certainly one of them. I love her on The Office (as an actress, writer, and director) and Twitter. She's always been a celebrity I wish I could have as a best friend, but her book just confirms this feeling. The book contains stories about childhood, living in New York City, her off-Broadway show Matt and Ben, living in Los Angeles, and The Office, as well as many other topics such as friendship, fad diets, and strict funeral plans, just to name a few. My favorite chapters included:
  • I Am Not an Athlete
  • Don't Peak in High School
  • Day Jobs
  • Best Friend Rights and Responsibilities
  • Guys Need to Do Almost Nothing to Be Great
  • Non-Traumatic Things That Have Made Me Cry
  • Married People Need to Step It Up
  • When You're Not Skinny, This Is What People Expect You to Wear
  • Revenge Fantasies While Jogging
Those are just the chapters whose pages I dog-earred the most. Every chapter made me laugh and just feel good about life. I definitely recommend this book if you (a) are a Mindy Kaling fan, (b) you like to laugh, (c) you appreciate both hard work and family, and/or (d) you enjoy discussing things like comedy, men, karaoke etiquette, and the ideal level of fame.
