The Anti-Bucket List

The Anti-Bucket List

When a fresh and dazzling new year begins everyone seems to get busy with their resolutions and updating their bucket lists for the year to come. Admit it, we've all got a few things on that list don’t we? Mine is very, very long and I won’t bore you with the details (seriously is a Golden Retriever and a Chelsea loft too much to ask for?), but what about your anti-bucket list? You know the things that you definitely, absolutely, categorically don’t want to do. When I asked my husband what’s on his list - his response was: I don’t want to get rabies, visit Chad for a holiday and I definitely don’t want to sleep with Justin Bieber. (Sorry Beebs, I know that news must be pretty devastating). So it got me thinking about what was on my 2016 anti-bucket list. I can 100% say that 2016 won't include:-

  1. Camping. I don’t even want to go glamping.
  2. Living in a landlocked place. This Pisces needs a liquid horizon people.
  3. Bungee jumping, sky diving, swimming with sharks or riding in a hot air balloon. No. No. Just no.
  4. Going on a cruise. I worked for a cruise company once. All those activities and interactions for an introvert like me = hell. Plus I now get horrifically sea sick.
  5. Deep sea fishing. See above.
  6. Being one of those people who has long, personal phone conversations on public transport. People just don't need to know.
  7. Wearing crocs. Who invented those? Seriously.
  8. Trying hard drugs. I’ve seen Trainspotting.
  9. Being part of a flashmob. I’m crazy shy.
  10. Being one of those people who don’t have time to read. I give permission for you to disown me if I ever utter those words.

Don’t get me wrong, I am happy for you to be a bungee jumping, croc wearing, flash mob dancing enthusiast but please don’t make me come with you.

So, how about you? What’s on your anti-bucket list for 2016?
