19 Things I Will Never Apologize For Because I'm Tired Of Saying 'I'm Sorry' When I'm Really Not



I'm sorry but, I'm tired of apologizing. Oh wait, actually, I'm not sorry about it at all.

While I am an advocate for kindness and human courtesy, I believe there are some things we shouldn't be sorry for anymore. We shouldn't be apologizing for the things that make us who we are and the things that make us happy. Before you start judging someone or overthinking that somebody is judging you, remember that you should never apologize for...

1. Staying in instead of going out.

Sometimes I just want to stay inside and watch Netflix, okay? It's not a crime.

2. Having an opinion you don't agree with.


How boring would the world be if we always said "oh yeah, uh I agree" to everything? You're allowed to have an opinion and you shouldn't apologize for that.

3. Bringing humor into almost every conversation.

Okay, I can't help it. I was a born comedian.

4. Especially awkwardly laughing during situations where no one should be laughing.

Okay, I REALLY can't help it.

5. Not always ordering a salad whenever we all go out to dinner.

Sometimes, a girl wants a good burger. Or a bowl of pasta. You know, it's allowed.

6. Bragging about the healthy choices I've made that day.

You also should be proud that I woke up at 5am to go to the gym. I'll hype you up, you hype me up. Cool, bro?

7. Spontaneously changing my hair even though you keep telling me you "liked it better before."


My hair, my life. And I wanted bangs, sue me.

8. Going to a kids movie without any kids with me.


Maybe I too want to see a movie about a bunch of animated characters that get along and be friends and believe in magic.

9. Having unrealistic relationship expectations.

Why can't it be that simple?

10. Having unrealistic career expectations.


I'm sorry, are you saying you NEVER wanted to be a princess? Or you've never applied to a job you're under qualified for?

11. Having an unrealistic fantasy that you and your celebrity crush are actually going to end up together.


It could happen! Okay? One day, I could walk into a coffee shop and *BAM* there he is and we fall in love and then I find the doubters and say "HA!" Also, a crush isn't hurting anyone. Who cares?

12. Singing loudly in the car.


It's just going to happen and I shouldn't feel bad about it.

13. Making everyone pose for a group photo even if they don't want to.

One day, you'll thank me.

14. Taking longer than everyone else to get ready.


Personally, I like makeup and I want to take the time to put it on.

15. Being overdramatic when I'm sick.


Please send your love and prayers while I battle this cold.

16. Being different than everyone else.

Why would I want to be anyone besides myself?

17. Asking too many questions.


I just want all the answers!

18. Making mistakes.


It's part of life.

19. And mostly... growing up .

Someone's gotta do it.

I love listening to Christmas music just as much as the next person, but when I turn on my local holiday radio station each year, it just feels repetitive. No hate to musicians like Burl Ives or Nat King Cole, but Christmas music needs an update. Personally, I'm tired of the same "Let It Snow" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". So plug in your Christmas tree, make some hot cocoa, and listen to these amazing (and updated) holiday songs.

10 Christmas Songs For Your Festive Playlist

I have no shame in starting to feel festive super early.


All of these songs are definitely popular. However, I have the strong opinion that having the songs on your Christmas playlist be popular is extremely important. Having everyone sing to the songs is most of the fun; it adds to the festivity of whatever you're doing.

Personally, I love to bake cookies and hum along as I cannot sing and no one should ever hear me. Whatever you do for the holidays, enjoy your festive time and the season!

Every Track On Ariana Grande's 'Positions' Album Ranked

Ariana Grande has achieved major success with her new album and we're ranking every track.


Ariana Grande surprised fans in October, tweeting that her new album was being released. What followed was yet another number one peak on the Billboard 200 albums chart. The album's title track and lead single, "Positions," also hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

With "Positions," Grande took a much more light-hearted approach than the confessional nature of its predecessor, "Thank U, Next." It was a welcome and refreshing change of pace. Now that the album has been out for a solid month, it's the perfect time to see how the songs rank.

In the four Christmas' that I have spent with my boyfriend, I have realized one thing: boys are hard to shop for. Each year I have to rack my brain for gift ideas because when I ask my boyfriend what he wants for Christmas, he always says something along the lines of "nothing," which as a girl is hard to fathom since I literally give him a list each year before Black Friday.

After hours each year scouring the internet for the perfect Christmas gifts to get my boyfriend, I have come up with a pretty long and inclusive list. To help those girlfriends going through the same thing, I decided to put together some of the best gifts I have come across.
