The Anti-Bucket List

You know what I hate? Bucket Lists. Why? Because there’s things I want to do, things which I’ve already done and things which I’ve already done which should have been on the bucket list that I have been trying to create for years. For. Years.

I recently read a blog entry for some blog inspiration. There was a whole bunch of ideas but the one that jumped out at me was that of the Anti-Bucket List. A list of things you have already done. I mean, it’s a no brainer really! Just make a list of all the shiz you have already done and keep adding to it everytime you do something new. That way there’s no pressure to come up with a 25, 50, 100 + list of things you want to do in your lifetime. Additionally, it’s reflective. I like it.

So without any more delay, here is my anti-bucket list (In no order…although I am categorizing them) –
