Anti-Bucket List

Wednesday, December 12, 2012

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.

    Agree with all of the comments! Wonderful list - I think I am the only person on the planet who really likes beets - most people fake it :-)

    I love your list! And I feel the same way about beets, though I did make a tasty borscht a few weeks back--my family brought beets home from the grocery store, so I had to find something to do with the nasty things!

    Too funny! I'm going to do my own F*** list one of these days too.
I never realized so many people are anti-skinny jeans. I wear mine a lot!
Oh well, to each her own.
Great blog!

    While I will continue to strive for a healthier life in diet and exercise, and if shedding a few pounds is a byproduct of that, I say nuts to trying to look like one of those Victoria's Secret babes. Anyway, who wants a pair of wings? emoticon

    Great list! emoticon
Skinny jeans are the worst thing to happen to women since the perm! They are the WORST THING EVER! And the fact that men are also wearing them is just ridiculous..

    Great idea! I think we all waste too much energy focusing on things that belong on a list such as this. I can't imagine life without a stove, however. :-)

    LOLOLOLOL ! I love this, Rheyn -- I think it would be much easier for me to make a "F@#$ IT list" as well !!!!! Feel free to post this on the "bucket list thread, I'm thinking lots of people could relate!

No stove?? -- now, THAT would be liberating!!
