PSA: Mindy Kaling was in Georgetown

mindy-kaling-cover-ftr

For those of you who are fans of The Office and The Mindy Project, you might want to sit down. According to our Twitter sources, the wonderful Mindy Kaling was in DC yesterday. Even better, she was looking at food places IN GEORGETOWN.

I eat in Georgetown. She may have eaten in Georgetown. Conclusion: We are the same person.

How do we know this? Ms. Kaling tweeted out to her followers yesterday the following message:

Please commence freak out!!!

While 4E has not uncovered which restaurant she chose as her fancy, we were very impressed with the rhymes the citizens of DC came up with to entice this fabulous lady to dine in our humble abode.

Georgetown University even got into the game! Could you imagine if you ran into her at Snaxa?!

Of course resident comedian and politician, Joe Luther, threw out a rhyme:

This one is my personal favorite. Possibly because of the Kimmy Schmidt reference:

Ugh, but who doesn’t love Chris Messina:

While we don’t know where she went, Mindy did respond to this tweet with the clapping hands emoji. Did she ditch Georgetown all together?

  Mindy, come back. We love you. giphy Photos/Gifs/Tweets: Twitter.com; giphy.com; huffingtonpost.com; thinmintspiration.files.wordpress.com; http://static.parade.com/

Revengenda: Student Clubs

Club Rejection

“Club season,” as some (by some, I mean me) have dubbed it, is almost over at Georgetown. Like my mother astutely commented, applying to clubs at Georgetown is “almost like reapplying to college.” First, let’s acknowledge that there are some great clubs that do not require you to send applications. Here’s to you GIVES, GUGS and many more.

Secondly, one of the reasons clubs can be very competitive at Georgetown is that we Hoyas are generally a great group of kids. It’s almost unfair, am I right? Still, no matter how formidable the competition was, rejection can be tough. We at 4E understand and are here to help. One of my personal idols, Mindy Kaling, once said, “You should know I disagree with a lot of traditional advice. For instance, they say the best revenge is living well. I say it’s acid in the face — who will love them now?” In that spirit, here is 4E’s guide on how to get back at clubs that have rejected you.

  1. People say, “The enemy of my enemy is my friend.” So, next semester, why not apply to the one club that is in friendly – or not so friendly – competition with the club that rejected you?
  2. Keep reapplying. Not just next semester, but reapply every semester for your entire time at Georgetown. If nothing else, you’ll annoy them to death.
  3. Take a note from Mean Girls and create your own burn book. Just don’t let it fall into the wrong hands…
  4. Go all Taylor Swift and write a chart topping song about the club. “I knew you were trouble when I clicked send.”
  5. Listen to Destiny Child’s “Survivor.” Don’t question it. Just trust me, it works.
  6. Have a little party with your good friends Ben & Jerry. tumblr_n5fiymEeUs1tqs1heo1_500
  7. Start your own club. You are a Hoya, which means you are intelligent, creative and (insert adjective of choice). Use this as inspiration and create something amazing!
  8. Don’t worry! On a more serious note, I myself can list several clubs I did not get into or have already reapplied to more than once. Opportunities besides student clubs are always coming up for Hoyas here on the Hilltop. Don’t let one decision get you down, never forget to keep trucking and doing you!

Staffers of the Week: Victoria Edel and Addie Fleron

Once a week, The Hoya recognizes a staffer who has done a particularly awesome job – now you can get to know about them, too. As part of our Leavey 421 series, we post quick interviews with each Staffer of the Week. This week we’re featuring two amazing Hoya staffers: Victoria Edel and Addie Fleron.

Name: Victoria Edel
Year:
College
School:
2014
Major:
History and Government, English Minor
Hometown: Brooklyn, N.Y.
Position on The Hoya:
Wash-up and Guide Columnist

Why did you earn staffer of the week?
I worked with the Personnel Director Addie Fleron to put together our first staff retreat.* We herded together all the current Hoya leaders with many of the past to reflect and talk about where we’re going, where the paper is going and how we can do better for ourselves and Georgetown.

*I’ve heard from alums that we used to have these, so technically this is the first in recent memory, but there has been a pretty big gap since the last one, at least.

What is your favorite part about working for The Hoya?
Everyone who works for this newspaper is really weird in the best possible way. Some of my best friendships were forged at 2 a.m. over Pop’ems and intense discussions about font choices, and I’m pretty sure that sort of stuff isn’t happening anywhere else on campus.

If you could make a band with any two people, who would they be?
Mindy Kaling and Aubrey Plaza, not because we would make anything worth listening to, but because I just want to be their best friend. And who knows — if we put our heads together maybe we could give Andy Samberg and The Lonely Island a run for their money. Give me a call, Mindy and Aubrey, and we can make it happen.

Name: Addie Fleron
Year: College
School: 2016
Major: Medieval Studies
Hometown: Westfield, Mass.
Position on The Hoya: Director of Personnel

Why did you earn staffer of the week?
With Victoria, I helped organize the first leadership retreat for members of The Hoya’s board box.

What is your favorite part about working for The Hoya?
My favorite part about working for The Hoya is definitely getting to hang out with all the great people! Somehow we manage to make the tiny, champagne-covered office a great place to be.

If you could make a band with any two people, who would they be?
I’m hoping I get to pick actual musicians for this question because I am not musical. In which case we would have to go with Adam Levine and Pink. Partially because I want to see what mash-up that would create.
