It’s hard to believe I’ve been in New Zealand over a month now. When I first got here I had this grand idea that I would make a bucket list for everything I wanted to do, see, accomplish. Pretty common these days I think. People are always wanted to cross things off a list. In fact, I always hear talk about how good it feels. How satisfied they are when they can look down and scratch out something they set out to do days, months, or years before.
I’m going to be honest. I think it’s bologna. Yes. BOLOGNA.
If you are going to set out to do something significant why would you want to cross it off once it’s finished?? Shouldn’t you be outlining over it in permanent marker and then framing it on the wall? That would make it distinct, give it some pizazz and also make a nice decoration piece.
I’m halfway kidding. I do hate bucket lists but I like the idea of feeling like I’ve accomplished a lot. So I bring to you a REVERSE bucket list. Genius eh? Here is everything I’ve done my first NZ month… No crossing off necessary.
