There are days where it scares me that I'm in my 20s already - just barely, that's true, but still. When I was a kid I used to think that by now I'd have traveled the world, written an award-winning novel, and become some sort of celebrity (of course!). Now that I'm almost out of college, I feel like my time to do something amazing early in life is coming to a close - which makes such driven and talented people like Mindy Kaling all that more amazing to me!
"The following year, she began attending Dartmouth College, where she was a member of the improvisational comedy troupe "The Dog Day Players" and the a cappella group "The Rockapellas," as well as the creator of the comic strip "Badly Drawn Girl" in The Dartmouth college newspaper. She graduated in 2001. In 2003, she portrayed Ben Affleck in a play entitled "Matthew & Ben", which she also co-wrote. The play was named
one of Time magazine's "Top Ten Theatrical Events of The Year"."

I know this is my 2nd post about someone from The Office in a short time period, but hey! It's only my favorite show, after all. I love seeing stories like her - she is so focused and driven. You can see how all her side projects and hobbies have led her to where she is now: a talented and hilarious writer/actress!
