Everyone Should Want To Be Friends With Mindy Kaling

If I could plan my last day on Earth, I would want to spent it with Mindy Kaling. There's just something about Mindy that presents her as one of the most genuine celebrities in the business. Mindy Kaling's style is open, consistently humorous, and the way she speaks and writes sounds like a train-of-thought, this-is-how-it-is process. Audience is an important part of Kaling’s style, she writes for young adults about their lifestyle and world around them. She expresses herself in this way so others can realize that they shouldn’t take themselves so seriously. In particular, I think Kaling writes in a way to relate to women. She talks a lot about making friends, crushing over Brad Pitt and Bradley Cooper, going to fancy celebrity events, eloquent alcohol beverages, and love of shopping (all relatable and entertaining things to watch and hear about since she comes from such a genuine place). She's funny without trying, she is honest about how hard she worked to get where she is today, and she's confident but not afraid to laugh at herself. Here's some facts, quotes, tweets, and clips of Mindy being Mindy.

1. Mindy graduated from Dartmouth College in 2001.

"Work hard, know your shit, show your shit, and then feel entitled. Listen to no one except the two smartest and kindest adults you know, and that doesn't always mean your parents. If you do that, you will be fine." - "Why Not Me?"

2. She's hilarious when talking about her dating life.

"When I have a crush on someone I pester them until they die"

3. Mindy Kaling is the first Indian-American to have her own network show.

"Effortless is overrated. 2015 is about being effortful. Way sexier."

4. She's not afraid to admit that life is rough sometimes.

5. She isn't afraid to make fun of herself.

6. She's worked hard and hasn't stopped being herself.

Mindy Kaling and her on-and-off-again boyfriend B.J. Novak are writing a book about their relationship. According to New York Daily News the book deal was set for $7.5 million.

'I will freely admit: My relationship with B.J. Novak is weird as hell. He is not my boyfriend, but he is not my best friend. The best way I would describe him is that he is my ex-husband, and we have a son who is away at boarding school, so our fighting can never get that bad because it would upset our child. I guess you could describe our relationship as a "romantically charged camaraderie with loud arguments," but I don’t think Facebook would accept this as a new status.' - "Why Not Me?"

Ughhhhh, Mindy! Can we please be BFFs?

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
