Things I'm Glad I Did, But Don't Ever Want To Do Again
-Spring board diving
(I was on the diving team in high school. Now I'm a big old wimp.)
-Dancing on a bar
(I'd like to include in this one anything else dumb I did while drinking too much during college. It was fun, but it's just not as cool when you're 30.)
-Kissing a boy who name I didn't know
(I think the husband would disapprove a bit.)
-Wearing a uniform
( I don't think I've never mentioned it before but I went to college on a ROTC scholarship and then served 5 years in the Navy. I really glad I served, but I'm also really glad that I'm done. I love spending this time home with my son. And don't be too impressed I only sailed a desk.)
-Submerging on a submarine
(Just for a few hours.)
-Running while somebody is yelling loudly and timing me
(I learned I could do things I didn't know were possible. But it hurt...a lot.)
-Moving cross country
(I grew up in nothern CA and went to college in upstate NY. I didn't know a soul when I arrived.)
-Studying for finals week
(Never a pleasant experience for myself or anyone around me.)
-Taking classes at night after work
(This is not the fun way to go back to school.)
(Freshmen year, spring break, Jamaica.)
I'm glad I did these things. I learned a lot from them and they have helped me grow up.
But some of them were pretty dumb and some of them were really, really hard. I'm glad all of them are in my past.
What's on your list?
