So. I’m really not the swearing kind, but at the moment I can’t think of any title more suitable to my list. My mother always scorned those who swore, saying they were lazy with the English language. Oops.
This whole blogging shenanigan popped up as part of my f*ckit list; things you really shouldn’t do if you want to arrive at the end of life all clean and sparkly. I used to want to do that. Live safe, live clean, and live for the long term gain. Well, I managed to keep my nose clean and stay our of trouble, which was all fine and dandy for a while, until I decided that I wanted more. I didn’t really care about being safe or ‘right’ or having a Five Year Plan. There’s plenty time to do that yet. However, there may not be plenty of time to do the following:
Throw on clothes in the morning without scrutinising myself
Dance until dawn
Make new friends
Kiss a stranger
Dress like a bit of an oddball
Laugh at yourself Oh goodness. Every day. Every damn day.
Learn new languages
Learn new skills
Get an extracurricular piercing Tragus and forward helix. I want more!
Meet new people
Drift a bit
Let life happen to you
Get yourself on the path you know you need to follow without knowing exactly what it leads to. Well, I’m starting out.
So that’s exactly what I’m going to do. All that and more. It’s all a bit hippie, but quite frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.
