What’s On Your Anti-Bucket List?

We were pretty stoked when we read on Jezebel that one blogger had compiled an “anti-bucket list.” In response to the popular trend of compiling bucket lists of things do before you die (for instance: See Paris. Fall in love. Have an original idea) Jill has laid out some things that she probably could do, but will never do. They range from “raising chickens” to “hosting dinner parties with food I actually cook myself.” It’s fun to say there are some things we’ll never do! And it made us think of some of our own. They include:

Become vegan

Skydiving. Or bungee jumping. Anything that involves hurling ourselves through the sky, really.

Waking up early to go to the gym

Grow my own vegetables

Any kind of outward bound adventure where we’re left alone in the woods

Hot yoga

Feel free to share anything that you never feel a need to do.

    Ooh, ooh, me, me! Um, how about those “vacations” where people brag about how long they spent on a train? Like how the Trans-Siberian Railway will take you from Spain to North Korea by way of **all of Russia**. Note: if you have to drink vodka for two weeks straight to keep from killing yourself, it’s not a vacation. You can drink vodka anywhere.

    Write a novel. I’d love to. I think I would find the writing cathartic. Even if the end product would probably be mediocre at best. But I’ll never do it.

    • Jennifer Wright

      You know, a novel is really just like 500,000 comments strung together. You could totally do it.

  • Outshined

    @ Jennifer Wright, you summed it up nicely. Those are exactly my never-do’s. Well done! And thanks for making thinking less difficult for me. (what the hell is with the hot yoga anyway?)

    Growing one’s own vegetables though is easy! You can stick an onion into a vase with some water in your kitchen for some automatic scallions in your kitchen, for instance.
