Find Your Inner Bad Ass Bitch Goddess This Spring Break With Mindy Kaling

This is for the ladies. The single and unsingle, capable, and remotely confident ladies who could be more confident with a shot of Mindy Kaling or two. It’s almost Spring Break, which anywhere but New York means flowers bloom atop bikini strings and everyone hooks up in beer-funneled orgies on white sand.

NYU Local is here to tell you that you deserve that. Every ounce of it. And we’re designating none other than Mindy Kaling as your crack spirit guide for this week. Whether leaving or staying, living in New York means you sometimes forget your worth and/or flirtation skills. The following are a list of Kaling-approved rules to remember your inner bad ass bitch goddess.

1. “Think of the best warrior version of yourself.”

For Mindy, this means Beyoncé Pad Thai. For you, this could be a Top Chef-Victoria Secret Angel hybrid. We’re telling you to embrace her. This is the one week of the year specifically designated for Project X recreations. Like Mindy, you  should feel empowered (with or without being coked out in a yellow see-thru top).  There comes a time in every girl’s life where you can be THAT girl and we’re giving you permission to be the best Xena: Warrior Princess-Wasabi version of  yourself.

2. “Refer to me as Frieda Pinto or a young Halle Berry.”

If abiding by rule #1 seems like a challenge, channel a feasible celebrity ego. JLawrence. JLo. Whatever floats your boat. Like Mindy, you deserve to fake a British accent, now and again, if the situation were to arise in which you would be significantly cooler being from Hyde Park. We get it. It’s the better sounding version of English anyway.

3. “I just figured if I’m gonna be a mess, I might as well be a hot mess, right?”

The one thing we know about Mindy is that she makes it O.K. to be sappy, overly romantic, and borderline psychotic all at the same time. Like most women on screen, that is why we watch her feeling not as alone with our inner  dysfunction. However, she is also not a twig like Katherine Heigl or Mila Kunis, reminding us all adorably average-looking individuals that being funny might just get you your own show. Take that shot.

4. Be an exquisite creature.

This is no direct quote. Think of it more as an underlying theme. Because you, our friend, are exquisite.

5. Safe Sex.

Because again, it’s Spring Break.
