Unfiltered and Unapologetic

For those who know me, it comes as no surprise when I say what I am thinking of while in a group of people. For those of you who do not know me, I am not sorry. I am not sorry when someone brings up a topic or asks for advice and I tell them exactly what I am thinking. For a very long time, I would sit back and not say a word. I would do whatever people wanted me and not express any concerns until after I was home or when I was alone. Clearly doing that was not helpful. As I got older I finally started to take a stand for myself. I will admit, sometimes I am so strong-willed it gets a bit extreme, and sometimes it is completely useless to try and reason with me. Sometimes my mouth is a bit too much and gets me in trouble but again I am not sorry. I work with people every day and they always ask me my opinions on things, and that is usually one time I will scale it back. However, I have noticed that people genuinely appreciate the honesty. Who's 100% honest anymore? Come on ladies be honest, share your opinions, your thoughts, share whatever you want.

I have come to find that girls commonly have the involuntary impulse to apologize whether or not they are actually right or wrong. It's about time that comes to an end. Girls need to understand that being unapologetic is a part of growing up as an independent, driven woman. Women who speak their mind and act according to their own interest, giving little thought to the thoughts of others, are the unspoken heroes of today's society. Being unapologetic does not make you a bitch. I think it makes you strong. In a world run by men who think they know it all, you have to be strong. You have to have the balls to accomplish your dreams. You have to kick ass to make it to the top. Call me stubborn, heard headed, or a bitch all you want but that is not the case at all.. Okay, maybe a little bit.

So if anyone ever dares to call you stubborn for a decision or something you say, remember that you are, in fact, a badass unapologetic independent person.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
