Loving Mindy


Memoirs are my genre of choice this year.  I received Tina Fey's new book, Bossypants.  I would like to read Bitter is the New Black again as well.  My choice for the first memoir of the year was easy.  I received a Kindle Fire for Christmas from my parents and I was so excited to pick out my first book.  I discovered that Mindy Kaling had just released a memoir called Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns).  I believe it's actually more of a collection of essays.  She is absolutely hilarious.  Working for Conan has to be one of the most entertaining careers.  I probably live in a dream world thinking that Conan is exactly the same in real life as he is during his show, but it could be true.  Anyways, I love her on The Office.  She is even better in her book. 

“I’m only marginally qualified to be giving advice at all. My body mass index is certainly not ideal, I frequently use my debit card to buy things that cost less than three dollars because I never have cash on me, and my bedroom is so untidy it looks like vandals ransacked the Anthropologie Sale section. I’m kind of a mess.” Mindy Kaling, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?

Another part of my resolution is to continue to read books, lots of them and the Kindle was the best thing I could have received to help with my resolution.

Back to my resolutions, I weighed myself properly today and measured my waist and hips and all those horrible places that weren't really meant for a measuring tape.  It was very shameful, but in the long run, it will make me very happy. 

Maybe later in the year, I will publicly announce my starting weight, but for now, people will secretly judge me for either making a big deal out of a number that isn't that big, or people will be shocked that my number is that high.  Not worth it.
