I'm always thinking of things that I can add onto my bucket list. Some are so silly, like: go to the mall and glue quarters to the ground while watching people try and pick them up. Others are more serious, like: start a family or get sealed in the temple. Then, I thought just the opposite. "What are some things that I DON'T want to do before I die? Things I would absolutely hate to experience before I died? Things that I WILL NEVER do."
• I will never skydive.
Though this might be on many people's bucket list, including Mr. Schroeder's, I can honestly say that I will never go skydiving. I'm not afraid of heights or anything like that, but I can't skydive. I won't skydive. Bungee jumping? I'll do that. I've done that. But I can't and won't jump out of a plane. I ain't budging.
• I will never complain about my husband being too busy at work.
My husband is fortunate enough to be his own boss. These past few months have been slower with work, and it's been a little more stressful. Each time Mr. Schroeder and I pray, we thank God for work. I hate when people complain about being too busy, because what if they didn't have a job? Obviously, if Trevor has too many jobs and it's taking away family time for a long period of time, there will be some changes. On the other hand, I will never ever complain about Trevor being too busy. We are far too blessed for that.
• I will never enjoy a musical.
My old room mates were shocked when they heard me say that I hate musicals and plays. Ugh. I hate them so bad. I can't enjoy them. I've tried way too many. They're far too cheesy and unrealistic for me. I just...can't. Musical fans, please don't hate me for saying that.
• I will never say, "I can't handle this."
Recently, I had some health issues that made me repeat this phrase on the daily. "I can't do this anymore. Why has God trusted me with this? I can't do it." Well, guess what? I did it. I conquered it. And I firmly believe that there is nothing you can't handle. God has trusted you enough with this trial, so do your best to conquer it.
• I will never have a pet cat.
For one, I am allergic. For two, I sort of believe that cats (not kittens) are evil creatures.
• I will never care about materialistic/designer shiz.
I like to think that I could spend my money on much more important things, like traveling with my husband, or even spoiling my husband. Better yet, saving it.
• I will never be too old for trick or treating.
Though it may be a little less often than every year, I still love to trick or treat. I just hide my face so that people don't know that I'm an adult. I'm secretly super stoked to go trick-or-treating with my future kids so that I can get some candy, too!
• I will never lose sight of who my closest friends are.
Though there are only 2 or 3 individuals out there that truly care about me and my happiness, I will never allow myself to forget about them or what they have done for me. I vow to myself that I will never become selfish enough to put me before them, either.
What are some things you will not do before you die?
