Sorry, not sorry.

5 Things You Should Never Apologize For

I'm a firm believer in saying sorry when sorry is due, but I will never say sorry for something I shouldn't have to apologize for – and for good reason.

1. I will never apologize for a day when I feel grumpy and antisocial.

If I feel like a slob-kabob and want to hide away in my dark cave of solitude (AKA my room), I will. If I want to start and finish a whole series on Netflix before returning to the outdoors, I will. If I don't want to reply to a single text in my inbox, I won't. (It's usually just my mom.)

2. I will never apologize for having the time of my life.

I'm in college and going through what many call "the best four years of your life." So, duly noted, I shall celebrate like it is. Yeah sure, some may say "You go out a lot" or I might get a lecture from my dad about multiple charges to my card in one night, while I call and beg for more money for groceries, but I mean, life isn't meant to be spent sitting on a couch at home. Well, it is when I'm being grumpy. (See above.)

3. I will never apologize for caring.

The next time someone throws adjectives like "crazy," "psycho," "delusional," or "insane" at you, please laugh it off. Unless you are hunting them down, probably a boy, and coming at him with a chainsaw, girl you ain't crazy! Don't apologize for caring about someone when they hurt your feelings. 99.9 percent of the time you are upset for a good reason and they call you those things as a defense mechanism in order to avoid ownership of what they really did.

4. I will not apologize for pigging out.

I won't feel bad about myself when I get stared at for eating french fries, Nutella on a spoon, and a family size bag of chips simultaneously. One, I'll probably feel so happy after indulging, minus the food baby. And two, I know this tastes better than your breadless, cheeseless, funless sandwich you're trying to enjoy.

5. I will not apologize for butting in when it comes to my best friends.

You hurt my best friend, that means you're hurting me. (I've probably already concocted a plan to shave your eyebrows off.) I definitely won't feel sorry for butting in and telling you how much you kind of suck for making my best friend cry, whether you wanted to hear it or not, because let's be real, you'll hear my opinion anyway.

    For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

    Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

    I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

    Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

    Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

    Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

    This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
