My Anti-Bucket List

For today’s post, I was going to talk about my bucket list but decided to do something other than that and post things I would not like to do before I die (which should be in another 200 years if I’m lucky -wink wink-) So without further a-do, lets get straight into it.

1: Get bitten by a mosquito.    This has always been one of my biggest fears. If I go abroad on holidays, the first thing I would delightfully do would be to purchase a mosquito band. You know the ones, they stink but they keep mosquitoes away from you. I’d have about two of them on at a time. You can never be too sure with those pesky bugs.

2: Get stuck in an elevator.      I’ve done this once in a shopping mall. I wanted to see what happened when I jumped in a lift and unfortunately I learned the hard way. Of course, it stopped. It stopped for no more than five seconds but I was already in a panic. I would have loved to see my face when it started moving again. It was so much relief. I decided not to tell anyone until now.

3: Burn myself with a curling iron.     If I ever want to curl my hair, I still as my mum to do it as I have a really bad fear of burning myself. I don’t recall ever doing this to myself but I may have down the line a bit. I’m still not sure though.

4: Get pulled out to sea in a current.    I’m weird. Really weird. I have the weirdest fears ever. Anyway, this relates to being in a wave pool on a holiday abroad in Bulgaria. I was happily in a doughnut ring (I don’t know the proper name, it’s that inflatable thingy) and the lifeguard blew the whistle as the waves were pulling me to the danger end of the pool with a depth of two metres. Bearing in mind, I was only about 120 centimetres back then. For some reason or other, I jumped out of the ring thing and began to panic as the waves towered over me. There was about three woman in the pool trying to get to me along with my parents. Funny thing was, when it was over, I laughed my head off. Told you I was weird. Since then, I’ve been afraid of that happening in the infinite ocean. Without a ring thing.

5: Experience an alien apocalypse.       I’m not sure many people have this fear but I do. Well, its not a bad fear and I think its unlikely to happen as I’m under the illusion that aliens are trying to reach out to us and talk to us instead of running around earth causing chaos. I’m not particularly sure about this one. It’s up to your beliefs of paranormal life I suppose.

6: Go hunting.     No. Just no. I will never understand the need to kill an animal for sport. I often express this to my family and we could end up having an hours discussion over it. The discussions would be about me being against hunting, yet I’m not a vegetarian. We would have some laughs over this conversation as It can be funny sometimes. They would say that because I eat meat, it’s literally no different than killing an animal. I see what they mean but what I’m trying to say is, I would never be able to watch an animal die or shoot it. This leads on to the next thing I would not like to witness/do before I die.

7: Experience wolves going extinct.     Wolves are my favourite animal along with horses. Some wolf breeds are on the extreme of going extinct and I can’t help be worried for the poor things sometimes. I wouldn’t like any animal to go extinct in that case.

It’s not 100 things but with the length of the paragraphs, I think it’s long enough 🙂 What are your anti-bucket lists? I’ve been wanting to share these for a while now and I will soon have a proper “bucket list” up soon. Bye for now!

  1. Hi Aoibha, I am a feline – and fabulous, as you may have noticed by my name – lists are not for me. Since I have nine lives, it would be nearly impossible for me to do a bucket list or even an anti-bucket list. It would take, well, just forever! But your list was both funny and compassionate and so it’s got me thinking that maybe I’ll make up a list too. Happy blogging!
