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.

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.
