Sorry Not Sorry
Sorry Not Sorry: Dreams, Mistakes, and Growing Up | Naya Rivera
14 posts | 12 read | 7 to read
Funny and deeply personal, Sorry Not Sorry recounts Glee star Naya Rivera's successes and missteps, urging young women to pursue their dreams and to refuse to let past mistakes define them. Navigating through youth and young adulthood isn't easy, and in Sorry Not Sorry, Naya Rivera shows us that we're not alone in the highs, lows, and in-betweens. Whether it's with love and dating, career and ambition, friends, or gossip, Naya inspires us to follow our own destiny and step over--or plod through--all the crap along the way. After her rise and fall from early childhood stardom, barely eking her way through high school, a brief stint as a Hooters waitress, going through thick and thin with her mom/manager, and resurrecting her acting career as Santana Lopez on Glee, Naya emerged from these experiences with some key life lessons: Sorry: - All those times I scrawled "I HATE MY MOM" in my journal. So many moms and teenage daughters don't get along--we just have to realize it's nothing personal on either side. - At-home highlights and DIY hair extensions. Some things are best left to the experts, and hair dye is one of them. - Falling in love with the idea of a person, instead of the actual person. Not Sorry: - That I don't always get along with everyone. Having people not like you is a risk you have to take to be real, and I'll take that over being fake any day. - Laughing at the gossip instead of getting upset by it. - Getting my financial disasters out of the way early--before I was married or had a family--so that the only credit score that I wrecked was my own. Even with a successful career and a family that she loves more than anything else, Naya says, "There's still a thirteen-year-old girl inside of me making detailed lists of how I can improve, who's never sure of my own self-worth." Sorry Not Sorry is for that thirteen-year-old in all of us. From the Hardcover edition.

This book surprised me. At the beginning of the book when talking about being a child actor I almost bailed. But the rest of the book was really good and she was really honest. I wouldn't call this a memoir, it more advice from lessons learned and her chance to clear some stuff up. But its really fun too, and she does spill some tea!😉

Clwojick I remember really enjoying this one! I listened to the audiobook a year or so ago. 1mo

Well, I suppose it was about time, but they forced my hand earlier than I wanted to. There was absolutely no effort to retain my membership. None. I don‘t care who you work for or what company it is. If you‘re not fighting for each and every customer - you‘re priorities are misguided. To think, I used to be a #botm ambassador. Pretty sad!

I will still look forward to seeing what there choices are, but sadly won‘t be giving them my business.

emilyhaldi Me too!!!! Such a shame 🙁 1y

I can only slightly remember playing this game, mostly because I remember family members favorite token colors to choose. I‘m old.

Tamra @callielafleur you need to play! It‘s very similar to Trouble. It‘s a great game for young kids who are learning to count & play board games. 2y
Ddzmini I want to play 😳 2y
Suet624 I played this game for years while my kids were growing up. 2y
Dolly @MaleficentBookDragon @CrowCAH @callielafleur @Tamra @Ddzmini @Suet624 Back in the ‘60s and ‘70s there were not many board games from which to choose. Hopefully they will be back in vogue again because they really are lots of fun. 2y
JanuarieTimewalker13 Oh, I loved Sorry! But my favorites were Careers, Clue and Go for Broke! 2y
Ddzmini @Dolly so true I remember playing games all the time growing up now everything is electronic and no one is playing like we did when we where young 😋 2y
Tamra @Dolly yes & yes! My kids like to play it. There is now a vertical version on a tower. (edited) 2y
rwmg I remember it! 2y

Just a quick note to say sorry to @Tiffy_Reads because I'm not sure I'll get much of the #slaythatseriesreadathon done today - I've just received my #litsypenpals from @steverogers and so I'm very excited about this! @Annl @Emiller

I wasn't really expecting much from this book, but I'm really loving to hear about her life. She's thrown some shade, but it's mostly owning up to her own shit and claiming her successes too. Santana 💯

I honestly wasn't sure about this one at first, but it grew on me. It was refreshing reading about life from someone who isn't afraid to put it all out there, the good and the bad. Honestly, it was comforting hearing that someone who's life seems so perfect now spent many years struggling to get there.

Her faith in God and relationship with Him is inspiring.

thegirlwiththelibrarybag I loved her in Glee - she has such an awesome voice (and not enough solos) 3y
Kenziejo @thegirlwiththelibrarybag I agree! I loved when she got the chance to sing. 3y
BookNerdBritt @thegirlwiththelibrarybag @Kenziejo ditto! Love her cover of "Valerie" ? 3y

thegirlwiththelibrarybag @BookNerdBritt, ooh yes! And Santa Baby ☺️ 3y
Kenziejo @BookNerdBritt @thegirlwiththelibrarybag Those were both great! I loved when she sang Girl On Fire. 😍 3y
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @Kenziejo, I just watched Girl on Fire - 😍 wow! I'd lost track of the show by them (were Rachel and Kurt living together?) 3y
Kenziejo @thegirlwiththelibrarybag Yep, Rachel and Kurt were living together by then and Santana even moved in with them. I think that's the last season I watched. They had brought in a lot of new characters after that. 3y
