A Do Not Want List For 2011

These are things I could do without next year.  Just for the record.

Insomnia/heartburn/bad stress.  Who needs that?  Even if it does mean blog posts can run through your head at four in the morning.

My internal Editor.  Shut up, seriously.  When in doubt, let it out.  Just do it.  Write it/say it/send it.  And do a little dance when you’re done.

Mail that consists only of bills.  See Item 1.  Anyone want a pen pal?

Fear of turning 30.  It’s happening in March.  If I was scared, I’d be screwed.  Considering that on any given day I feel 8, 19, or 83 and half years old, 30 is just a number.

Cabin fever.   Get out of the house.  Now.

Bad coffee.   I don’t have the time.

Out-of-Order signs on accessible toilets.  Or said toilets being used as supply cupboards.  Or no accessible toilet at all.  Because I don’t want to pee on the floor.

Living in a place called Procrasti Nation.  Do it today.  And then do something else tomorrow.

Unfinished/Neglected projects.  Do SOMETHING towards SOMETHING every day.

Scatterbrain Suzy:  Put your cards back in your damn wallet.  Put the phone back on charge.  Tape your keys to your head.  File your paperwork.  Don’t leave books in the fridge.  Throw stuff away.

Inspired by a Reverb10 prompt.


What’s on your Do Not Want list for next year?

  1. I have put the milk/juice in the cupboard and the washed out glass in the fridge. I have put the asparagus in the pan I wanted to cook it in and then promptly put the pan back in the cupboar. (not a nice surprise a week later, trying to find that strange smell) And with all the very random places I do find my books and keys, I’ve never left a book in the fridge. (I have found my keys there)

  2. I especially like “Don’t leave books in the fridge.” I note that it’s not “Don’t PUT books in the fridge.”

    Mail that consists only of credit card offers would be on my list. I got three or four yesterday. I am digging OUT of debt. Not going to add any new.

  3. Like your list…it could be mine in MANY ways except I just turned 50…wow, 30 was just yesterday…what happened to the time. It flies so be sure you ARE living in the moment. And you’re so right it’s just a number. I remember when my mom turned 30 (I was 11) and I thought she was soooo old. Now I’m fast approaching double that…now that is scary.

    I finally found your blog…I was the one on BlogFrog who asked if you had one (didn’t see it on your profile). So, you’re found. Feel free to come visit me, too whenever you have a moment or need to know something about Photoshop. I’m offering a free kit (or elements thereof) each day for 12 days of Christmas if you’re interested. digitalscrapbooklessons.com

  4. I could do without a lot of that stuff too! The bills one especially. Anyone else let themselves get way behind to do that extra Christmas shopping? Well, that’s me.

  5. I’m with you on the “internal editor” business…it’s the number one reason why I’ll probably never write anything lengthier than a blog post or magazine article–I’m my own worst critic!

    Good luck with your non-resolutions 🙂
