The Bump It List

So today, I hopped on Bloglovin' to read some posts and had decided I wouldn't post today because I was lacking some motivation due to the overwhelming exhaustion I'm already feeling from my new (awesome) position. Until I stumbled upon Kalyn's post.

The Bump It List.

We all have a "bucket list" of things we want to accomplish in life but we all know there are some things we would just never ever do.

one // Bungee jumping. For some reason, I have a giant fear that the bungee would snap right after I throw myself off a bridge and I hit the bottom and die. Nope, no thanks.
Although this looks beautiful... I just don't think I could do it. Yet, I want to sky dive.. for some reason parachutes don't scare me as much.

two // Move any farther south than where I am now. I'm from GA and I slowly made my way farther north to NC. Once we are here long enough, we plan to move even farther up north. Or even farther west. Anything but farther south. I will never live in South Carolina, Alabama, Louisiana, Georgia (again) or Florida. The only other place I'd live would be Tennessee, but I highly doubt I could ever get Christian to do that.

I prefer four real seasons - beautiful fall leaves for more than a week, majestic snow falls (although I really do dislike scraping ice off the windshield), green springs with light breezes and summers by the pool. In the south it's literally always summer in my opinion...

three // Give up meat. Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope. I'm not sure this needs any explanation. I really love burgers, bacon, pepperoni pizza and chicken and dumplings. How could I give those up??

four // Become a runner. As a competitive cheerleader we ran a lot. A LOT. And in the middle of the day in the middle of the summer in the middle of Georgia. Around a a track. Or up and down bleachers. Or around buildings. Or across parking lots. Pure torture if you ask me.

Yes, I loved being in shape and I totally see how all the running made us as awesome as we were because we didn't get tired during competitions. Yes, I get it. But, no, I don't ever want to do it again. There are too many other ways to get in shape when I decide I actually want to exercise..

There are a few other things that popped into my head to list, but then as I thought about it I realized I might actually end up doing those things so I really shouldn't rule them out because you never know where life will take us, so these are my four and everything else we'll just play it by ear!

Hahaha your "no running" thing made me laugh! That ecard is awesome!! I could never give up meat either. As far as skydiving? I highly recommend it!!! :) but I really DO want to try bungee jumping!

Move to PA!! And I will probably never be a runner either

I couldn't imagine eating veggies and never having meat. I'd overcompensate with the carbs.

I agree with you on skydiving vs. bungee jumping... I think it is because you're SO HIGH when you're in a plane, it seems more surreal and when you're bungee jumping, you're only a couple hundred feet up and it is VERY real!
