  • THINGS I DON’T DO…

    This past year for me has been all about CHANGE…Inside and out.

    And it has got me thinking, I know  I know…never a good idea… it got me thinking about all the things I DON’T DO in my life.

    So I took a very scientific Facebook and Twitter poll and asked people…If they had a life resume and had to list “Things they DON’T DO” …what would be on the list…here are a few answers…

     I don’t jump out of or off of anything. I don’t run unless something or someone is chasing me. I don’t go out on the ice regardless of how thick it is. I don’t go in water I can’t see the bottom of – lakes / oceans – I don’t like being in the dark. I don’t do camping, I don’t do oceans, I don’t do ironing, I don’t do Chucky Cheese, I don’t watch horror movies. I don’t touch spiders, I don’t ride on a motorcycle or skydive. I don’t do make-up, I don’t parallel park, I don’t do vomit. I don’t do snakes, I don’t do upside down, I don’t pierce anything, I don’t do tattoos.

    When I reversed the question and asked what “DO” you do to remind you that you are still alive, the list changed drastically. There was a lot less danger.

    One of my favorite things to do when I travel is to stock up on all the latest magazines for my flight. I love flipping through the pages and seeing all the latest fashion and design trends or reading the latest celebrity interview. However there is a HUGE downside to this love of mags… They are heavy and expensive…

    I would easily drop over 20$ on 3 or 4 magazines and they would make my carry on bag not so ‘carry’ friendly.

    This is where my NEW FAVOURITE thing comes in…
