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 .

beer on the beach

Summer is hot and humid, and it's almost like summer was made specifically to drink the refreshing, cold, crisp wonderful, delicious, nutritious nectar of the gods. Which is none other than beer; wonderful cold beer. With summer playing peek-a-boo around the corner while we finish up this semester, it's time to discuss the only important part of summer. And if you haven't already guessed, it's beer. There are few things I take more seriously than my beer, in order are: sports... and beer. Here are my favorite summer brews:

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

You cannot beat the beach. Believe it or not (which many people may not), New England has a long and beautiful coastline. Most of my high school summers were spent sitting on the Wall at Hampton Beach, getting sunburnt and eating Acai bowls from The Secret Spot. The Wall was the place to be both during the day and at night. We begin our days there with a KB's bagel and coffee, and end them with pizza and ice cream. It’s not a New England summer without that 4 p.m. text from someone, “Who wants to meet at the Wall tonight?” Nighttime is for Tripoli’s Pizza, the sound of waves, and wishes on shooting stars. Wednesday nights are especially important, as those are the nights that Hampton Beach sets off the weekly firework display.
