13 Confessions Of The Girl Who Says 'Oh, I’m Sorry' Again And Again

I'm sorry I said sorry. Wait, I said it again.

Do you find yourself saying sorry multiple times a day? Does your family ever tell you to stop apologizing so much? Do your friends make you cough up a dollar for every sorry you say? Do your coworkers get kind of irritated when you apologize for the third time in less than 30 seconds?

If you said yes to any of these, you're basically an obsessive apologizer. You say SORRY way too damn much. More than likely, you've been saying sorry for longer than you can remember. You've just always been the girl who says sorry and then apologizes for saying sorry.

It's a totally miserable habit to be stuck with but it is relatable. You are not the only human being out there who says sorry too much and then curses up a storm for doing it again.

1. You literally say SORRY a hundred times a day.

It's an inside joke with yourself on how many times you say sorry each day.

2. You apologize to anything and everything. Yes, this includes walls. 

You trip going up the stairs and say sorry to the stairs for tripping. Then, you run into a wall and apologize.

3. You envy people who bite their nails because their bad habit is better than yours. 

It would be so much easier to just bite your nails and worry about how your nails look.

4. You try to catch yourself before saying sorry, but you can't stop the word vomit.

You try so hard to hold that sorry down, and then, it just bursts out.

5. Instead of saying sorry, you try replacing the word with something else thinking it could work. 

It does not work. You've been there and done that.

6. You really don't even remember when the excessive apologizing started. 

It's like you woke up one day and just started apologizing like crazy.

7. You tried the put a dollar in the jar for every sorry and went broke. 

It seemed like a great idea at first until you realized you'd eventually run out of money.

8. You totally reward yourself when you go an hour or more without saying sorry. 

Yes, you went a whole 45 minutes without saying sorry, so it is time to treat yourself.

9. Trying not to apologize feels like you are holding your breath forever. 

If you don't apologize, you might just pass out.

10. You get low key embarrassed when people tell you to stop apologizing. 

I'M SORRY. I'M SORRY. I'M SORRY. I'm sorry for apologizing so much.

11. Sometimes you wish people would tape your mouth shut or hold you down to keep you from saying sorry. 

Don't let me say it. Don't let me.

12. The harder you try to not say sorry, the more you say it when you finally explode with apologies. 

It's like a volcanic eruption of apologies. You apologize to everyone and everything for something.

13. You're obviously sorry for saying sorry so much, but you just can't help it. 

You know that people get tired of hearing it, but in all honesty, you can't control it. It's just something you do.

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.

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.
