Nothing much exciting is happening this week in my life. School started again…..barforama to optimization techniques. So, I’ll have to get after that this weekend while I can more beans and peppers because ya know….I’m obsessed now.
I thought I’d throw together a list of women in pop culture who inspire me. I have plenty of strong, inspiring women in my every day life, but every once in awhile a celebrity comes along and gives you a little extra boost of inspiration.
Should you ever feel like taking the lazy way out in life remember……Rhonda doesn’t have time for DO NOTHING BITCHES! She says that it’s a term she uses to describe
the women my mother raised me not to be.”
I think that’s incredibly important in today’s society. She sets goals and demolishes them, and that’s something that any mother should want for her daughters. We don’t all have to win fights in 34 seconds, be rolling in cash money, or become a celebrity to prove you’re worth something. Getting up everyday and working on the life you’ve made yourself……that makes you a DO SOMETHING BITCH……and that’s the kind of bitch my parents raised me to be.
Yes yes yes….I know some of you are gonna hate me for saying I find a Kardashian to be inspirational. Just hear me out. I think it’s important that girls of every shape, size, color, and height have someone to look up to. For me, Khloe has been that person. It’s just nice to feel like you don’t have to be a stick figure blonde to get somewhere in this world sometimes. We tall, curvy, brunette women have to stick together….after all, it can get a bit lonely up here in the clouds.
No matter what, my weight doesn’t define me.”
She’s my reminder that I can be tall and wear heels. Who cares if I tower over people….it’s a good way for my friends to find me when we are out and about. Also she’s got sass for days and an epic bitch face!
I’m not generally a huge fan of hip hop music, but sometimes Queen Minaj just gets my jam! I also think it’s nice that she stresses the importance of education to her fans. She’s known for promising her fans that they can be anything they want to be, but they need to stay in school. She also never hesitates to call out the inequalities between men and women.
I stand for girls wanting to be sexy and dance, but also have a strong sense of themselves. If you’ve got a big ol’ butt? Shake it! Who cares? That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be graduating from college.”
I just want women to always feel in control. Because we’re capable- we’re so capable.”
Women should be allowed to be as hardcore and sexual as we want, because men do it all the time.”
Ironically, I read on Yahoo! this morning that Nicki Minaj and the Kardashians were voted two of the worst influences for kids by parents. Whatever, they can still be my role models because I’m not a child anymore! This is maybe why I shouldn’t have kids…?!??!
