My Anti-bucket List

We all have certain things we wish to do before we die. Hello bucket list. I know mine and it grows every day. But ever thought of things you never want to do or happen to you? Maybe, maybe not. This is just the tip of the iceberg that is my anti-bucket list.

Take on a client without a contract.

I know this looks like a no brainer. However, sometimes you find yourself taking on a job before confirming everyone is on the same page. So after being screwed over and over again, now this is a non-negotiable.

Stop learning new things.

A new day is always a new opportunity to learn. In this world you never stop learning unless you choose to. So I intend to keep learning until my last moments.

Cause a fire while cooking.

If you don’t know this yet, I love cooking. I bake to calm down when I need it. I always fear forgetting something in the oven or falling asleep and causing a fire.

Stop doing what I love.

There’s nothing as bad as waking up every morning to do something you hate. Something that drains you. I never want to be in that position. I was there at one time and it was hell.

Get a dog.

I don’t like dogs at all. I might get more cats though.

Get arrested/go to prison.

Let’s be honest, I doubt there’s anyone who wishes for this, but then again you can never be too sure. Why would I want to go to prison? Unless it’s acting, no thanks.

Keep toxic people in my life.

I have learnt from experience, if they add no value you don’t need to keep them around. I am the kind of person who believes it’s better to have 1 genuine friend over 100 acquaintances. Honestly, you only need one.  So you are either a ride-or-die or someone I know.

Go swimming with sharks.

Why would anyone want to do this? There’s adventure and then there’s a suicide mission. I like adventure just not enough to let it kill me.

Shave off my eyebrows.

I don’t get people who do this. I would never shave of my eyebrows to draw that black thin line above where they should be. Plus, I doubt I can pull off that surprised look every day.

Be normal.

Now why would I want this?
