Who is @mjblondin?

There (probably) comes a time in every young millennial’s life where they relate way too closely with a character they encountered via Netflix. Isn’t that what creators want? Relatable characters make for excellent ratings, encourage social media discussion, and as a result can start a movement.



I consider myself incredibly blessed that I wasn’t old enough to be so inspired by “the Rachel” that I chopped my hair off, but you get the idea. Luckily reruns of Sex and the City are so common on E! that I find myself too often comparing my life with Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte and Samantha.

The only differences being Des Moines instead of New York City, a Fraternity house instead of a luxury apartment, and Drake University’s campus instead of the Upper East Side; but you get the idea.


  I’m just your classic college girl trying to avoid the inevitable college weight gain all while ignoring the amount of calories in my morning coffee. While I usually hate “healthy” blogs, I’m going to try and keep it real, because that’s the only way I know how. I think that this blog will be a place for me to grow in my journey as an “adult” and a “healthy” person.
When I think of healthy though, I don’t think just of fruits and vegetables, I also think about healthy outlooks on life, on really appreciating myself and others. So I’m not going to be talking about food, or how to cut calories out of your favorite recipes, I’m going to be talking about my life, my food and my choices.
Thus, here is the blog of all of my thoughts and adventures, because for some reason I like to put things on the internet. If you don’t like to read long thoughts you can follow me on twitter for 140 characters or less of my shenanigans. Or if you just want to see filtered photos of my life (I’ll be honest I love a good vsco filter but who doesn’t?) you should follow me on Instagram.
 I know I am not without flaws and I hope that by me sharing my experiences, others will feel drawn to do the same. So be sure to visit often for the hot mess that is my life as I navigate my junior year of college, the starbucks drive thru line and trying to achieve a 4.0 GPA.
