¡Feliz Año Nuevo!

I don’t really do “resolutions” but here’s a list of things you don’t have to apologize for, at least not around here:

  • You do not have to apologize for being a feminist.
  • You do not have to apologize for approaching media that’s meant to entertain with a critical mindset.
  • You do not have to apologize for being organized.
  • No tienes que pedir perdón por hablar en Español, even when you don’t translate it into English.
  • You do not have to apologize for needing to point out prejudiced language.
  • You do not have to apologize for what you like to watch, read, or listen to.
  • You do not have to apologize for not liking what everyone else seems to like.
  • You do not have to apologize for never leaving comments.
  • You do not have to apologize because you think you leave too many comments.
  • You do not have to apologize for telling me something on the blog or the forum is broken.
  • You do not have to apologize for liking cats.
  • You do not have to apologize for noticing “unimportant details” in the background.
  • You do not have to apologize for being you.

Be your badass self. And in 2019…

Kat is 5ftLatina. She is really 5' tall (and probably shrinking) and Latina. She is not actually a cactus, but she is both prickly and cute. Mr. 5ft is actually married to Kat, but is not 5' tall or Latina. He is also not a form of plant life.

The world is a better place because cats are in them.

This is awesome!

“You do not have to apologize for not liking what everyone else seems to like.” (or in my case, liking what no one else likes.)

“You do not have to apologize because you think you leave too many comments.”

These two right here. They spoke to me.

Quick question – do we have to apologize for short, lazy recaps?

Kat, Nice list. I consciously make an effort to NOT apologize as a form of speech- speech I am personally unlearning as a female. It is interesting how automatic the phrasing is. Apologize with integrity, I say!
