So maybe you’ve seen these around on other blogs and wondered to yourself what they are. Or maybe you haven’t seen them and you have no clue. Well since a bucket list is like a goals list of things you want to do in your life then an anti-bucket list would be the things you would never do in a million years, even if someone paid you to. I thought this was an extra special fun post to share with my answers and you can (please do) comment below and share some of your anti-things. I bet we can come up with some not so fun things together..
Here’s the things I could NEVER DO:
- Go Tech Free// forever
I believe in a little tech free day or an afternoon without tv or electronics but I couldn’t survive without Instagram and Pinterest and my Snapchat addiction.
- Learn the Chinese language
I’ve heard many people say it’s the new “spanish” but I have no desire to ever learn such a complicated and choppy sounding language. I can barely speak my own. I tried to learn French and that was pretty difficult.
- Wear CROCS
Those feet coverings are just wrong.. I can’t even. A fashion travesty.
- SKY DIVE or BUNGEE JUMP
I have a severe fear. of. heights. nope!
- Get Plastic Surgery
Now, honestly I joke and will talk about getting my “boobs” done. The desire is there. But I know that I am 100% too chicken to follow through with it. I have never had surgery or even broken a bone so to “fix something” that ain’t broke=no pain please! NO thanks!
- Own a reptile
Snakes, Lizards, Geckos- some are less creepy to me than others but owning any slimy crawling animals, I’ll pass. I don’t trust anything in a tank in that case.
- Visit NYC
I have had a bunch of people near me go to NYC, but all the glitz and glamour and Times Square magic can really cloud your brain. Sure it’s fine for some people and I’m sure it’s honestly a fantastic place to live. But I have no desire to go to such an overrated place. Too busy, too rude and just not worth it to me. Bye Naked Cowboy!
- Go on a backpacking hiking trek
HIKING, for several hours carrying heavy cargo?!? Camping outside probably on the side of a cliff in the middle of nowhere…?? BUGS? And things that bite and go bump in the night- don’t bother to sign me up. I’ll be in my bed dreaming of sugar plums dancing in my head.
I sing. I sing, well. I do not feel comfortable singing well- in front of others in a half empty bar. I’d rather get drunk and listen to everyone else instead. (Keep the Long Islands coming…)
- Swim with Sharks
Let’s tell you a short story: I have never been able to swim. Okay that’s the story and after lessons all my life- I still cant swim well enough to save my own life. So being terrified in the water with a 2500lb shark outside a cage- um, not my personal idea of fun or cool or even fascinating.
- Go to jail
I do not commit crimes. I can’t imagine doing anything that wrong or against my morals but
- Eat Indian Curry
It’s spicy and that’s pretty much my reason. I don’t think I’d like the flavor of it. It’s for some people maybe but not for these taste buds.
- Cheat and/or get a divorce
I have never cheated. I would never get a divorce (please leave your “well you don’t know so… blah blah blah” at the door, I don’t wanna hear it.) I know I wouldn’t ever do this. I would try. I would invest and do the work. I came from a broken home and a shattered family- I do not want to turn into yet another statistic.
- Write a post, article etc about pro-choice/pro-life
I am middle fence with this one. TRULY! I can’t even explain my standing because I’ve never been in this position. I DO NOT judge or shun someone for their choice either way. I would not be one to write about it or other conflicts in the world (i.e war, death, trafficking, religion, policy, politics etc.) It is your body, your choice either way.
I hope you enjoyed my list and explanations of the things I’d never do. I’m sure I have a ton more so maybe there’ll be a part 2? Would you like that? Tell me what you think below. I’d really love your feedback.
Now go out and chase the dreams and goals you DO WANT! No better moment than the present.
