Do you ever roam the halls of the Choates awkwardly wandering by floor pregames and wondering if your evite got lost in the mail? Mindy Kaling ’01, Dartmouth grad and hilarious actress who plays Kelly Kapoor on “The Office” (and writes for it too!) wonders about stuff like this, and honestly so do a lot of Dartmouth students.
Kaling has actually been pretty social lately, chatting with everyone from NPR to Newsweek in anticipation of her new book “Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns).” The ’01 is getting lots of national attention and we’re looking forward to grabbing a copy of her work, which hit shelves on Nov. 1.
If you’re feeling down, just remind yourself that people at Dartmouth got here by being that girl/guy that was far too busy to even take a coffee break from studying. It’s probably not personal that all your “lunch after 12s anyone?” texts go unanswered, but just in case it is personal, I recommend putting a “Missing” poster up of yourself and see if anyone calls you to be sure that your friends still care. Mindy would be proud of you.
