5 Underappreciated Foods

This post is happening on a gloomy Wednesday because Heidi could hardly get her ass out of bed today.

I got all ready to go to my 10:00 a.m. lecture, which I hardly ever go to, only to lay my ass back down on my bed because at 9:52 a.m. I couldn't figure out anything to wear. So naturally, I gave up.

In the mean time of skipping class, I debated going to get breakfast or doing a quiz that is due later tonight. I put so much thought into what I should do, that I ended up doing absolutely nothing.

At least by 10:40 a.m. I managed to get up and throw an outfit together, eat some yogurt at 10:50 a.m. right before I was going to head out for my 11:00 math lesson only to realize I FORGOT TO BRING A GRANOLA BAR UGHHHHHHH!!

It is currently 12:16 p.m. and I'm in the library killing time before my 1:00 o'clock women's studies class and I can only think of different fucking foods I wish I was consuming right now.

So here is a list of things I wish I was putting in my body, but instead I am stuck with only water until 2:00 p.m.

1) TAQUITOS...Why do fried tacos have to be so damn good and why don't I have any right now?!?

2) MALL FOODCOURT CHINESE! I'm talking the stuff they overload in a white styrofoam container and you can usually get a main item with two sides..OMG 2 DIE 4. One order of sesame chicken, fried rice, and cream cheese wontons :p

3) TOTINOS PIZZA. The one's that take 15 minutes and I can EASILY eat one all to myself. Yup. 

4) APPLEBEES CHICKEN FINGER PLATTER. I should consider myself an expert in this field as chicken fingers were the only things I ate as a child at restaurants. Don't waste your time because Applebees by far has the best ones. With a side of extra honey mustard you'll have a full belly and no complaints. 

5) McCHICKEN!!! Is there ever a wrong time?? I'm desperate, people..

This was great and fun but now I have to get to class. :)))))

Introduction: 31 Day Blog Challenge

“She knew what she wanted, got what she wanted, and did so with a measure of grace that made you realize that she operated on another level.”  -Babe Walker

This quote doesn't exactly fit me to a "T" but it's not really supposed to. No, I do not get everything that I want. If I did I would have a  car by now and clear skin. We can't always win. But I do like to live my life with the vision that "there is no plan B becuase plan A will work." (This also does not always prove to be successful.)

If you know me well, you know that Babe Walker is a huge inspiration when it comes to by daily attitude about things. And if you know what's best for you, you would have put your phone down by now and picked up White Girl Problems. Babe gives me fire and allows me to channel an inner sassy b**** in order to go about my daily routine with a little boost of confidence. 

I am also not a morning person..not
 sure if I ever will be

If you don't know me at all, I am a college freshamn studying business (something) at the University of Minnesota Duluth...and hopefully a minor in Womens Studies. I was born and raised in a small town in Minnesota while surrouned by an awesome and overprotective family. 

Some of my current hobbies consist of yoga, Netflix (21st century..whatever), dancing (regardless of skill),  napping, taking notes in awesome colored Sharpie markers, sweating out my problems in the bath tub, eating too much ice cream, and hanging with my chicas. 

Thank you to Pinterest, I am very excited to take on this 31 day blogging challenge! LETS GOOOO!

Why Miss Independent Is Ok

"One can either be a boss ass bitch or someone else's bitch" -Heidi Johnson

Yes, this quote is from me. Yes, I just quoted myself. Deal with it.

I recall coming up with this statement my senior year of high school while talking about relationships with some of my friends, this was my point of view. Not saying I'm anti-relationships, I just think if you're going to invest so much time and energy into someone, it should be worth it.

I choose to live with the mentality that I am in school and I am here for myself, and it is important to focus on myself and my needs. Not only that, but I want to feel free to aspire any goals of mine without feeling guilty of neglecting a potential lover because I am focused on myself.

The point in which I am at in life right now is the time in which I need to be selfish. Although I am HARDCORE struggling, my time now is devoted to focusing on school, health, and my friendships.

Pic of me doing my thang ;) 

I like to look at it this way, if I want to be with someone is making the extra effort to better themselves in their everyday lives, I should be doing the same damn thing. I can't expect no Romeo to sweep me off my lazy ass feet buried under my blanket Netflix watching ass when I damn well know my booty ass should be at the gym. To this day, I am not ready for a relationship, but I will someday be there.

If you are in the same position I am, take a deep breath because GIRL, it will be A-OK. Our time may not be today, but that's probably a good thing for our ratchet asses. Focus on what's important and everything will soon fall into place.

12 Reasons Why I Need To Become More Girly

Over my recent spring break, I have discovered I have the cleanliness level of a teenage boy who doesn't give a shit about school and just wants to smoke weed every day.

 So I have come to terms that it is time for me to make a dramatic change, and probably start, I don't know, probably GIVING A SHIT.

 I decided the best way to approach this is by choosing to live with a more girly mindset. You know how Youtubers have perfect apartments with a white color scheme and everything is always in perfect order. I'm not sure I can attain that level of "perfection" but it will surely be my inspiration.

 So here is a list of things I will strive to do when making changes and adapting to this new lifestyle.

1) Make my bed every day so I don't fucking lay in it after each class
2) Stop skipping class like a lazy ass and start giving a shit
3) Color coordinate my planner..and actually fill it out
4) I already do this but its never a bad idea to DRINK MORE WATAAAA
5) Start taking supplements in hope that it will result in some flowy tresses and beautiful glowing skin
6) Remove makeup every day. No questions.
7) Sticking to a skincare routine of face wash, toner, and moisturizer (moisturizer is keeeyyy)
8) Moisturize that neck!!!
9) Thou shall lather up body with unscented lotion post shower
10) Organize my desk other than the current "everything has its place" clutter it currently is
11) Go to the gym and do my friggin squats--> along with cardio and arm shit
12) Stop procrasting homework because girls who give a shit are always on top of their shit

Why I can't post an ass picture on the internet

With my newly discovered love for Chelsea Handler, she has inspired me in several ways. She is, in fact, my most recent spirit animal.

After viewing her four-part Netflix documentary and her "Uganda be kidding me" comedy tour, I have nothing but mad respect for this women. She has no fear and tells it like it is. I have never felt so inspired to not give a damn what people think while being slightly more of an asshole.

If you know anything about Chelsea, her nonexistent fear does not even stop her from posting bare naked ass pictures online. ITS JUST A BUTT!!!! This is what I aspire to do to get in touch with my spirit animal, but here is a list of reasons as to why I cannot:

  1. I am newly representing a sorority, and they say we represent our letters everywhere we go...and with everything we post. So my bare ass, unfortunately, does not make the cut
  2. Let's get this straight: my ass is basically Versace and my following consists of 75% peasants, so why make such a nice piece of royalty so accessible?
  3. My speech teacher from high school follows me on Instagram..oh and my econ professor too (yikes)
  4.  I am a 19-year-old college student, such picture could put me at risk for future job opportunities
I'm sure there are PLENTY of other reasons (my mother could see it, grandma..etc) but as for now I shall refrain from doing so. Chelsea Handler has a career set up for herself, and as a comedian, posting a bare naked picture probably only does good things for her career. So for now, I will keep all booty pics to myself. 

What's the Story?

With my first semester of college now under my belt, I have allowed new views and perspectives into my life. One thing especially, is the impact social media can have on relationships. 

Through my experience and careful observation, I have come to the conclusion that WE are ALL ordinary people (unless you are Beyonce). I don't care about how many followers you have, the amount of likes you get, or God forbid you double post. 

For myself, in the past I am guilty about wanting to take a certain picture "for the gram", constantly checking the amount of likes a picture is getting, or needing the perfect caption. Yes I still believe coming up with captions is just a fun thing to do anyway, but worrying about everything else is so petty. 

Some of the coolest people I have met within the first semester of college are one's you may not even be able to find on social media. Trust me, some of the best people out there are the one's who don't give a crap about social media..not as much as you do at least. I'm not saying go out and delete everything. I am only suggesting to you and myself that you stop "doing it for the gram" and just start living. And while you are living in your experiences, don't forget to take pictures so you can look back on your memories. 

Stop allowing yourself to do something just to get a picture out of it, and live your life in the pursuit of happiness and leaving a story behind the photo. 

Cheers, Not Heidi Ho
