The Liebster Award

liebsterawardI was nominated for the Liebster Award by the fantastic zine-ster Jolie Ruin! The aim of the Liebster Award is to introduce blogs to a wider audience, build a community and give bloggers a chance to share something personal about themselves.


1. What made you want to start blogging?
This site started after I had my second and hopefully last mid-life crisis. No Apologies was a nugget of a chewed-up and spit-out idea that flourished during my collage years. And what can I say, besides that I really didn’t want to give up on creating a conversation about things that mattered to me? What makes it better? The awesome people I have pouring their heart and soul into all of our content.
2. What is your biggest dream?
If you asked me this when I was seventeen, I probably would have said “to be a rock star,” but I as I get older I am realizing how much of the world I haven’t seen. It’s nuts that I have never been to the West Coast. Someone…anyone…buy me a plane ticket.3. If money were no object, what would you do all day?
BUY A CAR, online shop my ass off, buy concert tickets, plan visits to see my friends, send my brother a shit load of cash, finance the hell out of No Apologies and backstroke in my large backyard pool.

4. What is your favorite country or place to visit and why?

I want to visit NYC so badly. I interned for The Village Voice back in 2011 and I was too immature to really appreciate what an amazing opportunity it really was. I would give anything to do that over, but since time travel isn’t really an option I think another visit would be perfect.

5. Oops, you’re stranded on an island (with plenty of water & food). What three things would you want with you?
A huge ass notebook, a companion and a boat. At first the island would feel like a camping adventure, but eventually I would want to get the Hell out of there.

6. Name a movie and/or book that you recently watched/read and can highly recommend.

Book: “Don’t Worry, It Gets Worse: One Twentysomething’s (Mostly Failed) Attempts at Adulthood” By: Alida Nugent 
I am going to say a show instead of a movie. I have been obsessed with Survivor lately. I love watching the challenges, alliances, lying and backstabbing. I would love to compete in that.7. What do you collect?
Compact Discs of the musical variety.

8. What do you do to get “zen?”
Lana Del Rey, Sky Ferreira, Vodka and candle dancing.

9. What is the wisest thing someone ever told you?

“She/She’s figured out/all her doubts/from someone else’s point of view.” -Green Day

10. What song do you like to sing out loud?

“Creep” by Radiohead. I don’t mind singing any song out loud though, really.

11. If you could learn something super fast (Matrix-style), what skill would you pick?

It’s a toss up between playing guitar and swimming/surfing.


1.  I would be much more likely to get in a fist fight with someone talking shit about my friend then someone talking shit about me.
2. I like melancholy music more than upbeat tunes.
3.  It is just as easy for me to forget as it is to a hold a grudge.
4. Sweatpants are my favorite style.
5. I’ve been vegan/vegetarian for 2 years now.
