Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? Book Review


  
I just finished Mindy Kaling's Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) and I immediately regret not reading it slower and savoring it.

I actually bought the book thinking I would read it and then return it because it would only take 2 days to read and honestly I have no money for books.  However, I changed my mind.  Let me tell you why.

Mindy Kaling (of The Office fame) is witty and charming in a sweet-yet-sarcastic way that I instantly look for in friends because that is my personality, too.  (Be jealous.)  She can take stories of herself, such as being bullied as a kid, and make it sound like the most interesting case of bullying ever.  

In the book Kaling says awesome stuff like

"I really do have a remarkable appetite.  I remember when the news reports came out about Michael Phelp's ten-thousand-calorie-a-day diet, and everyone was so shocked.  But I just thought, yep, I could do that, no problem."

"Teenage girls, please don't worry about being super popular in high school, or being the best actress in high school, or the best athlete.  Not only do people not care about any of that the second you graduate, but when you get older, if you reference your successes in high school too much, it actually makes you look kind of pitiful, like some babbling old Tennessee Williams character with nothing else going on in her current life.  What I've noticed is that almost no one who was a big star in high school is also big star later in life.  For us overlooked kids, it's so wonderfully fair."

Some of the better stories are not really blurb-able so you will have to read the book for yourself. And  if you do decide to read this book, please let me know what you think of it because this is one I am keeping to read a second time.  After I let all my friends read it, too.

    I heard her speak at BEA last year and I thought she tried to hard.  I wonder if I would have enjoyed it more if I'd known who she was.  It sounds like the book is good!

  3. Magical spells really work!! I never thought there were still honest, genuine, trustworthy and very powerful spell casters until i met the spiritual helper, MERUJA OWO. last week he did a love spell for me and it worked effectively and now he just casted another healing spell for my friend who has fibroid and family problem and now she is totally free and she is presently the happiest person on earth, she keeps thanking me all day..
    I just thought it would be good to tell the whole world about his good work and how genuine he is, i wasn't thinking i could get any help because of my past experiences with other fake casters who could not bring my husband back to me and they all promised heaven and earth and all they are able to do is ask for more money all the time until i met with this man. he does all spells, Love spells, money spells, lottery spells e.t.c i wish i can save every one who is in those casters trap right now because i went though hell thinking and hoping they could help me.i recommend MERUJA OWO for any kind of help you want.
    his email address is: nativedoctor101@live.com
    if you want to ask me anything my e-mail is: dorispinto1001@gmail.com
    Kind Regards!

  5. I would give her a second chance.  I liked the way she used her bad experiences and turned them into witty lessons for herself and others. :)

  12. Me and my boyfriend were seriously in love for three years and we were planning to get marry but one day he came to my house and told
    me he was no longer interested in our relationship simply because he
    was dating another rich lady who promise to buy him a car and to sponsor their wedding. And i suffer heartbreak for five months and i was not tired of loving him.
    One faithful day as i was browsing through the Internet, i saw a testimony on how a spell caster helped some one name wizy to get
    back his wife after two years of losing his wife because he was no longer having a job. through this Email prophetharry@ymail.com
    So i sent an email to prophetharry contact him for help and surprisingly my boy friend came back with the help of the spell caster and was begging to come back. and now we are happily married.
    He is the most trusted, loyal ,genuine,honest and real love spell caster of the year .

  13. My name is Mravan greg,I live in Mexico,and Iâm happily married with a lovely wife and three children. I had a very big problem with my wife few months ago,to the extent that she even packed her things away from me and my kids for almost 5 months,and i tried all my possible best and effort to bring her back,but all to no avail.I discussed it with a very good friend of mine,and he gave me an advice concerning a spell caster,and i quote.âThereâs someone who can handle your situation,heâs always ready and able to do anything related to spell casting,i will like you to contact him with his email,which is as follows.sambo Great spell Temple Solutionâ. I never believed in spell casting,but he convinced me and i had no choice than to follow his advice,because i never dreamt of loosing my lovely wife.And thatâs how i contacted him with his email address,and i discussed with him and so surprisingly,he told me that Iâll get my wife back a day after.so i never believed,until when i got home,the next day,my wife called me to inform me that she was coming backâ¦..So amazing!! Thatâs how i got my wife back through spell casting and our relationship was now stronger than how it was before.One of the price i was asked to pay was to tell it to people around me that problems like this,can always be solved by sambo Great spell Temple Solutionâ. So! my advice for you out there is to visit this same website,and tell him your problems too,if you are in any condition related to love issue or getting your ex back,to have a happy family.THANKS.... HIS EMAIL ADDRESS IS prophetsalifu@gmail.com.. CONTACT HIM TODAY VIA THIS EMAIL ADDRESS:prophetsalifu@gmail.comAS HIS POWERS ARE SO STRONG AND VERY EFFECTIVE AND HAS NO BAD EFFECT INSTEAD IT HAVE A VERY GOOD RESULT AFTER CASTING THE SPELL.
