life lists (aka sami ta-doos)…
so. i been seeing, lately, alla these “bucket lists” (and, yes, i have to put that in quotes cuz that phrase just kills.me. like “pet peeve.” the phrase “pet peeve” is my pet peeve.
it’s kinda fucked.)
anyway – “bucket list”, life list, major goals list, whatever you want to call it, it’s a phenomenon on the internets lately and i.want.in. dammit.
a life (bucket/major) list is just a bit too encompassing fer me. firstly, life is a vast experience spread over (hopefully) a long period of time and trying to list the stuff yer wanting to do before you are no longer living is going to be (again, hopefully) a big.ass.list. and that big.ass.list will just be made bigger by including alla this (whisper) not so epic stuff and, i dunno. things might get a little crowded, and, fer me? when shit gets crowded? i get Confused, so
– that said.
i have decided to create a small ass, manageable, immediate ta-doo (sami ta-doo!) list. of small ass, manageable and immediate things. things i would like to accomplish to better my life, my loves and the collective reality that i am a part of. and, ya know, this list is not epic. it’s not dramatic. there is no sky-diving, mountain-climbing or deep-sea-exploration. in fact, this list is prolly stuff that a lotta people do daily, with little to no thought. but it is my ta-doo, not yers. not yer mom’s. not any other more highly functional individual’s than myself. yes, i shall do what i please. so. without the ado of the further, here is my
small ass, manageable, immediate ta-doo list*
plant a garden/herb patch in my backyard
buy the little compostin’ bin from the city
ask my lover to marry me
try to cook one new recipe a week
take my son on one badass adventure a month
that’s it. i know. i am so.effin.boring. but whatever, cuz i like my little list. and i think it’s kinda funny lifetime committment is sandwiched between trash and cooking. here’s to manageability.
