Well things have been getting really hectic at work so I am having less and less time lately to do much. Having a fun book that made me laugh was a nice reprieve from all the stress. Mindy’s new book Why Not Me? had a lot of laughs but it had some really serious moments too.
She has such an interesting way to look at life and she pokes a lit fun at how ridiculous hollywood is and that normal woman just don’t live that way. I applaud her for being real and sharing the good and the bad.
I had no idea that she was from Massachusetts which was an awesome factoid. I love that she shared the embarrassing and not always glamorous side of her job. I also love that she talks about how it was all her hard work that got her to where she is now. That aligning herself with the right people to mentor her and to learn from was one of the things that made her successful. I really liked the stories she told and the inside look. I would have much preferred to have listened to an audiobook version than read it since you don’t get her sarcastic undertones, but it did make me want to go watch the Mindy project.
I actually ended up binge watching the whole first season last weekend. I even got sucked into an hour long interview she did with one of her best friends B.J. Novak at BookCon.
