I'm really grateful for all the support you guys have been giving me. It's been comforting.
A few days ago, one of you asked me some questions, which I'm going to answer, because I don't want to be rude (and I love talking about myself, so everybody wins).
What is your fish's name?
His name is Mr. Sakana and here is his photo:
When he was adopted, his father was going through a Japanese phase, hence the name. Mr. S is a bit of a brat and to be honest, we don't really get along. My boyfriend, Rian, actually has a better relationship with him than I do. It's even gotten to the point where if I'm the one who puts the food flakes in his bowl, Mr. S refuses to eat them. It's like he'd rather die than take my charity.
What's your boyfriend studying?
Rian is getting his Masters in English.
What's your favorite shade of lipstick?
Light it Up by Victoria's Secret
Now, let's randomly talk about television.
I love television. Downton Abbey. Mad Men. The Vampire Diaries.
But there is a new show that I adore and I think it has potential to be awesome:
The Mindy Project.
Holy shit you guys. This is like my life. In 23 minutes.
The humor, the dialogue, the characters, the perspective. Sure, I'm not a doctor or even "single" but still. Watching this show was like watching myself.
Plus, it's kind of revolutionary. The Mindy Project is the first television show to be centered around (and created by) an Indian-American. Mindy Kaling is adorable, true, but she's also not a size two either. She's NORMAL. And awesome. And hilarious. Gahhhh! So much love for her.
I highly recommend you watch both the pilot and the second episode. (Click here to do so).
The pilot was basically setting up the premise of the show, and the second episode gives a taste of what to expect.
The show revolves around a 31-year-old gynecologist and her adventures at work and on the dating scene. I think it's a show most career-oriented girls around my age identify with. You spend your twenties working towards a goal, believing love will just enter into the picture naturally, and then suddenly you wake up and everyone else around you is married with kids and all the good guys are taken.
I've been a fan of Mindy Kaling since her days on The Office, but this show made me realize she might actually be my kindred spirit.
I want to meet her right now and be her best friend. (If you want to know a more detailed reason of why, click here).
What do you think of this show? What other new shows are you excited about this season?
