You Need This: Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)

You Need This: Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)

posted on: 11.10.2011

There are literally hundreds of reasons why you need this book in your life immediately. Since I am pressed for time (being the busy college student I am-not), I'm not going to give you all one hundred reasons, although I feel like I should, just because it would be interesting to see what I could come up with. But I'm not, mainly because I'm 98% positive none of you would stick around to read one hundred reasons I came up with on why you should read Mindy Kaling's book. Am I rambling at this point? Of course I am.

I'm pretty sure I am literally the same exact person as Mindy Kaling. I'm not even kidding. We are literally the same person. It's crazy! When I read this book the first time (which obviously implies I've read this book more than one time, duh), I honestly felt like I knew Mindy in real life, like we were old buddies. And quite frankly, if I'm going to be dramatic about it, she inspired me to continue writing my own personal memoir (don't judge!).

Like I said before, there are so many reasons to buy this book. Obviously, if you are an Office fan, you definitely need to check this out. If you are an aspiring comedienne, you need this book. If you're looking for a good laugh, you need this book. If you have lady parts, you need this book. If you have a pulse, you need this book. Do you see where I'm going with this?

In the book, she speaks about her writing style and what being "productive" means to her. I'm the same exact way! This is a little snippet from the book:
I've found my productive-writing-to-screwing-around ratio to be one to seven. So, for every eight-hour day of writing, there is only one good productive hour of work being done. The other seven hours are preparing for writing: pacing around the house, collapsing cardboard boxes for recycling, reading the DVD extras pamphlet from the BBC Pride & Prejudice, getting snacks lined up for writing, and YouTubing toddlers who learned the "Single Ladies" dance.
See? We are literally the same person when it comes to writing. The same! It blew my mind too.

I could literally sit here and quote the whole book all day long, but I'm not going to because then you'd pretty much have read her whole book through my blog, and you won't actually go out and buy her book. And that wouldn't be cool. So what are you waiting for? Go out and buy her book HERE!
