Confessions – Words I Will Never Quit

I am probably showing my age when I use certain words, but I don’t care. I can’t see myself quitting these words, well….ever! Words these days are wack. Like on fleek? Bae? Yaaaas? and all the other ridiculousness the other generations are coming up with now. The words of the 90’s and early 2000’s were way chill, ok?

–Dude and Sweet – Sometimes together or completely separate. Either way I can’t quit them. If I am about to say something serious, I usually start with dude.

–Hells yeah and hella. As in do you want to grab a drink? Hells yeah!!!! Or that show was hella good.

–Dilly-o – As in what’s the dill-yo?

–Whatever – This could be an answer to a question, an end to a conversation. Whatever.



–My bad

–Word – Sometimes this is used as an agreement. Statement :”Kids are wack today” Response: Word.


The Bomb

Damn Skippy – As in you damn skippy!


Mad- As in mad skills or that burger was mad good

Oh snap!


What are some words that you just wont quit?

Confessions in ecard

I'm bilingual: I speak English and Dog. Pin if this rings true for you!:

"I pretend to like people everyday. It's called being an adult and THAT is why we are allowed to buy alcohol." Some eCards:


My inappropriateness has no boundaries... and I think you like that!:

You'll never disappoint anyone more than I disappoint the fitness app on my phone every single day.:



I get drunk off that old book smell in the library. Hammered? Nah, son. #Grammared:

    Hells yeah and whatever are two of my favorites that I’ll never give up, I can’t live without whatever in my vocabulary.

  • Reply Amy March 23, 2016 at 8:46 am

    I say word all the time and I don’t plan to stop. Also Hellz Yeah. I say cool way too much which I am sure makes me look hella old!

    Also – every. single. one. of. those. words. DUH.

  • Reply Julia Strong March 23, 2016 at 8:48 am

    LOL I use almost all of these! And I totally do the “W” hand symbol when I say “Whatever!” too! 😀

  • Reply alyssa March 23, 2016 at 8:59 am

    “Whatever” will never die, be still my ’90s loving heart! I still use “word” and I totally overuse “awesome,” oops!

  • Reply Cara March 23, 2016 at 9:00 am

    Ahh, I love this and relate to so many of these words! I still say sweet and dude way too much but that’s okay! Our 90’s and early 2000’s words were so much cooler than the words they say now 🙂

  • Reply Amanda Elizabeth March 23, 2016 at 9:41 am

    This post cracked me up. When I lived up north everything was “wicked awesome” but the Floridian in me now has stopped with that one 😉

  • Reply Audrey March 23, 2016 at 9:52 am

    Hahaha. When I was a teenager I tried to work “hella” into as many conversations as I could… Also, that last photo about being #grammared. HAHAHAHA! I still use, like, 80% of these words, too! My future kids will be so embarrassed of me someday…

  • Reply kathy @ more coffee, less talky March 23, 2016 at 10:02 am

    confessions: i didn’t post one today 🙁 i am a bad host.

    i will also never quit those words!! i also love using the word “son” in sentences as in “you ain’t got shit, son!” LOL

  • Reply Michael March 23, 2016 at 10:04 am

    Sweet Jesus I hate when people say ‘hella’ or ‘wicked’. No, I’m sorry. It’s not ‘wicked cool’. However, I’m 100000% with you on ‘dude’ (I say that at least 7461697 times a day), ‘sweet’, and ‘word’. I’m also a big user of ‘yo!’.

  • Reply Monica March 23, 2016 at 10:23 am

    I say Dude all the time and Awesome. Awesome is my favorite. I’m not letting them go ever!

  • Reply Rebecca Jo March 23, 2016 at 10:35 am

    haha… I use Oh Snap WAYYY too much in life

  • Reply marie March 23, 2016 at 10:56 am

    I will never stop saying whatever! Never! haha And I totally over use the the word awesome. I also say wicked all the time. It’s totally a Boston thing. I can’t stop saying it. It’s horrible. In fact, when people meet me for the first

  • Reply Amy @ Getz Girl on Fire March 23, 2016 at 11:27 am

    This was too funny and I totally “get” all those words! I try really hard to learn the teenage lingo but seriously – so confusing! I just figured out what 420 was this week and my boys were all like, really mom? Word.

  • Reply Andrea @ Living On Cloud Nine March 23, 2016 at 11:35 am

    Too funny, I put some of them together even, like Duh, Whatever Loser!! Lol. I am so glad you will continue to say whatever the heck you want, Hells yeah!

  • Reply Kate @ Green Fashionista March 23, 2016 at 11:52 am

    Awwwww I love that we speak English and Dog! And lol at this list, I pretty much still incorporate all of these into my vocabulary as well 😉

  • Reply Dani March 23, 2016 at 11:58 am

    Yup, I use all of those, except dilly-o and whatever! If I say “whatever” it means I really do not care and am in a pissy mood. I also say “on the regular” a lot. Love all the perfect gifs!

  • Reply Teh Megan March 23, 2016 at 12:05 pm

    #Grammered lolz
    I like to say “Bro” to people just because it’s annoying. And most of the other things you listed. 🙂

  • Reply Stephanie March 23, 2016 at 12:23 pm

    I will never quit ‘dude.’ It’s how you know I’m about to say something important, I’m all “DUDE, listen….” “Dude you won’t believe what just happened…”

  • Reply laura March 23, 2016 at 12:49 pm

    hahahah, OH SNAP!!! this post is totally on fleek. sorry, I had to do it. Word.

  • Reply Jana @ Jana Says March 23, 2016 at 1:00 pm

    i am DEFINITELY the person who plays with the dog at a party. #dontevencare

    I will never quit “awesome”. I also say “just peachy” and “dude” a whole lot. I don’t think I really ever even used most of the words you listed. I mean, I use slang and all but not that frequently. Slang doesn’t sound right coming out of my mouth.

  • Reply Erin LFF March 23, 2016 at 2:07 pm

    HAHA- right with you on SO many of those words! I say sweet ALL the time 🙂 Jared and I also laugh when we start to tell the other one a story and start it with “dude” … it’s weird to call your sig. other dude but we still do 😉

  • Reply Laura @ Life with Lolo March 23, 2016 at 2:13 pm

    Pretty sure not a day goes by without me using “dude” or “my bad.” I also say pretty much everything else on this list too!

  • Reply Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders March 23, 2016 at 2:37 pm

    Love all of these so much, and the fact that you used Lizzie McGuire memes throughout the post too! I don’t think that I’ll ever fully understand all of the words that people use now, but I totes love to use “totes” on a regular basis, just to annoy my husband! It’s the best because he seriously hates that word lol!

  • Reply SMD @ Life According to Steph March 23, 2016 at 2:44 pm

    Like. Totally. Awesome. Dude.

  • Reply Jessica @ Pleas(e) & Carrots March 23, 2016 at 2:59 pm

    I totally use a lot of these words! My family and Brian and I use “son” a lot, like, “cool son,” or “ok son,” haha!

  • Reply Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis March 23, 2016 at 4:51 pm

    That brought back some fun memories! Clueless had a big impact with terminology and Michelle’s DUH! was always the cutest.

  • Reply Rach @ This Italian Family March 23, 2016 at 5:09 pm

    Oh my goodness! I use so many of these still as well! Dude, My Bad, and The Bomb are totally part of my normal vernacular. 😉

  • Reply Tricia Coniglio March 23, 2016 at 5:13 pm

    Bitchin’ – hahaha! There’s a guy in his late 40s that uses that and I always chuckle to myself. I use dude all the time and I asked if it was out of style – to which the answer was yes. Hooooweeeever, I heard some 20 something kids using it so I’m not feelin too old when I use that.

  • Reply TexErin March 23, 2016 at 8:57 pm

    When I saw the title of this, the first word that popped in my mind was “duh!” 🙂 Dude is my word. You know, Aussies say “mate”…and it’s not always used the same way. But, my husband will call his son “mate” often. From the very beginning of my relationship with my stepson, I called him “dude” or “little dude”. And, I’m the only one that calls him this, so it’s become our little term of endearment.

  • Reply March 24, 2016 at 7:35 am

    i need to incorporate more of these into my daily vocab, hehe. i do say awesome and totally a lot. and dang!

  • Reply Biana @ Blovedboston March 24, 2016 at 9:07 am

    These words totally take me back…like my bad and duh…definitely still say those! xo, Biana BlovedBoston

  • Reply Lindsay March 24, 2016 at 12:53 pm

    I still say many of these words, too! I say “whatever” all the time… so much so that my niece started saying it, and my sister made her stop. I said it one day and she said, “um, you’re not allowed to say that.” So I’ve tried to cut back! 😉

  • Reply Katie @ Running with wine March 25, 2016 at 8:09 am

    This post is totally on fleek…just kidding I don’t even know if I used that correctly. I have two embarrassing phrases that I use. Sometimes I say hashtag, like I’m talking on Twitter or Instagram or something. I also say “I can’t even” that phrase is from like two years ago but I can’t stop. Oh just thought of one more “you can’t sit with us” but that one is cool and not embarrassing.

  • Reply kristen March 25, 2016 at 1:01 pm

    this is fabulous. we had a tv show about a kangaroo named skippy so i definitely don’t use that haha.
    but i say the bomb and awesome (i say awesome way too much) and all sorts of other weird words. why the bloody hell not haha.

  • Reply Carly March 30, 2016 at 4:02 am

    I’ve noticed that I say cool and awesome way too much. I throw out some dudes every once in a while too!
