I know Bucket Lists are really "in" right now, and there are definitely things I want to do before I, myself, kick it. However, I have a life that feels more full than it has ever been, and there aren't many things I do that I do for reasons other than genuinely wanting to do them. I don't need a Bucket List to be happy, excited, and motivated every day. So instead of a wish-to-do list, I'm starting a who-cares? list. These are the things I am choosing to not let bother, worry, or annoy me anymore -- the things that aren't worth my time and energy. I call it my...
F@#$ IT (rhymes with "bucket") LIST:
+ tree trunk legs -- They ain't pretty, and so what? I love wearing shorts ALL THE TIME!
+ house quirks -- I have no stove and one really small, awful bathroom. I'm going to invite friends over anyway.
+ skinny jeans -- They're stupid and I hate them.
+ beets -- Nobody has to love all the vegetables. I'm done trying to like beets.
+ That Mean Girl -- I'm not naming names, in case she ever reads this, but she is THE biggest narcissist I've ever met. (Literally. I don't do hyperbole.) She's conniving, manipulative, selfish, greedy, lazy, and deceitful. She thinks she's hot soup, and people feed her ego by constantly telling her how gorgeous she is. She's not. Her face is hit up, and she looks old and orange. I know that's all terrible to say, but this is the last time I'm going to complain about her, so I had to make it good.
