What if everyone expected you to do one thing, but all you wanted was to be something else?
What if everyone expected you to be a doctor, or a lawyer, or someone who generally contributes to society in a positive and helpful manner?
But you knew, deep in your heart, what you were meant to do was be a rap star.
Or watch TV all day.
This week’s Mindy Project asks the age old question – how do you follow your dreams?
For Mindy’s brother, that meant leaving Princeton to write poems in the bathtub and use vaguely offensive nicknames to make himself a credible member of the rap music industry.
And for me, it means watching every last hour of television even when I know it’s going to be cancelled (I’m talking to you, LA Complex) because this is my path.
What I’m asking you is: are you going to continue to be an upstanding citizen in society making this world a better place?
Or are you going to sit on this couch and eat hot pockets with me?
Because these TV shows won’t watch themselves.
