Hello again everyone! Four days in a row of blogging? I’m getting back on track it would seem!
Yesterday, I had a guest post on Jade’s blog (http://www.simplyjadey.co.uk/) entitled ‘My Anti-Bucket List’ and so I wanted to link to it here, and also post it where you can find it easily, with a little bit of editting and extension.
This was an idea I got from the girls over at Birds on the Blog so check them out if you have a minute! Next week, I’ll post my bucket list so feel free to pop in and give it a read. For anyone who’s wondering, an anti-bucket list is exactly what it sounds like – a list of things I never hope to do or see. Some things I won’t put on the list, as hopefully there are quite a few things that we all mutually don’t want to do – who would want to bite off their own finger, for example? – so these are the less obvious.
- Touch a big spider. I’m sure we’ve all had those baby spiders crawl over us and while we may shudder we tend to let them be. I never ever want to touch one any bigger than that. Have you noticed how many massive spiders have been in our houses recently? Thank goodness for cats that can chase and kill them!
- Go Skydiving. Yeah, not being one for heights, this certainly does not appeal to me. To be honest, anything involving heights doesn’t appeal to me so…
- Sing in front of people. I used to love the idea of being a famous singer – so much so that I actually auditioned for and attended a stage school for the guts of two years! However, I turned 15 and was all too suddenly aware of the fact that not many people liked me and singing in public was just another excuse for them to tease me.
- Inter-rail. Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure it’s a fantastic experience, but it just doesn’t sound like my idea of a holiday. When I go abroad, I love to be able to relax at a good hotel, explore the city/country in my own time, and know that my flight home is the most travelling I will do. I adore travelling and experiencing new countries and cultures, but I would much rather do it over a prolonged period of time when I can enjoy it to the full.
- Attend a festival. Similar to above, the dirt, crowds and general camping part of festivals just does not appeal to me at all. But go, be free and enjoy them! I just know they aren’t my sort of thing.
- Stay in Ibiza Town or San Antonio when visiting Ibiza. Anyone who knows me is aware of how much I adore Ibiza. It’s my all-time favourite holiday destination and not only because of its reputation. I go to Ibiza to see friends and stay in the quiet parts of the island. If I wanted to go clubbing, I’d stay in Glasgow for free entry and cheap drinks!
- Drink instant coffee. Okay, yes, this one is me being a snob but hear me out. When I was first introduced to coffee, my friend poured me a long espresso, forbid me from adding milk, and gave me some dark chocolate to have with it. Since then, I’ve been hooked. There’s nothing better than proper coffee and now I won’t drink instant.
- Put on any more weight (unless pregnant). I’m not saying I’m a good weight, I know I could do with losing some weight, but I’m not unhappy. My confidence is slowly building, I finally am beginning to like myself, and my weight has played a major part in that.
- Smoke. Each to their own, but this is one thing I’m always tempted to do but manage to resist – long may that continue to be the case! My health isn’t the best anyway so why aggravate it?
- Eat rabbit. I can eat most other meats but for some reason, rabbit crosses the line. They’re just too cute to eat!
- Fail my university course again. I need to actually pass this year if I ever want to be a teacher!
- Play beer pong. I don’t know why but actually playing beer pong has never appealed to me. I’m happy to sit and watch a game though!
- Become famous. Now don’t get me wrong, I had that little girl’s dream of becoming a famous singer and/or princess but I quickly got over that when I turned 8 and started to have my confidence issues. Even now, the lack of privacy has me shuddering in fear.
- Climb Mount Everest. Again, I’m sure this is something that’s actually quite high on other peoples’ lists. However, it’s just not my thing.
- Work at the cinema. I don’t know, is this something people want to do? I used to think it would be great because of all the free films but just imagine working the food stand during a busy shift…
Hope you’ve enjoyed my list of things I don’t ever want to do! Do you agree with them or is there anything you would add? Let us know!
