You've all heard of the Bucket List -- things to do before you kick the bucket (i.e. die). I like the idea of having goals, experiencing everything, and living intensely - but I always found the Bucket List concept irritating (a topic for another day).
Anyway, the Bucket List are things you want to do before you die. The Fuck-It List are the things you did already, things you kind of had to do in order to find out who you were and what you needed. The Fuck-It list are those things that you are so glad that you don't have to do anymore.
TODAY, I woke up grateful that I was waking up in my bed in a life I had struggled for years to make coherent. I was
glad that I didn't have to wake up in some strange room
glad I didn't have to spend time with people I didn't like
glad that I didn't have to be drunk or stoned because the person I was with wanted me to be drunk and stoned,
glad that I didn't have to be under-appreciated by employers
shit - my Fuck-It list goes on and on.
Do you have a Fuck-It List? What's one thing that you're glad you don't have to do anymore?
