Been There, Done That

Upon reviewing my bucket list, I realized that there are things I would have put on the list, except I had already done them. Instead of leaving them off entirely and risking them floating into oblivion and suffering an utterly meaningless existence, I felt compelled to make them feel significant and stately, and so I have created a list of things that were bucket list-worthy, except they were too accomplished to be included. After jotting down the obvious experiences, I discovered this is much harder than you would think, and that I’m really hungry and might start gnawing on my desk if I don’t eat soon, and so that marks the end of this exercise. I’m sure it’s not comprehensive, but it’s something. And something is better than nothing, right?
