The Bump It List - A link up!

When Brooks came to me with the idea of co-hosting a link up with her, I was so super excited. First of all, I love link ups, I think they're a great way to discover new bloggers and make new friends. Second of all, this was a great idea! It reminds me of my unresolutions because instead of a "bucket list" we are writing a "bump it" list.... a list of all the things I never want to do before I die!

Who: Link up with myself or Brooks
What: think about all the things that you'd never want to do before you die. Basically the opposite of a bucket list.
When: Today!
How: Grab the button code above and paste it on the bottom of your post. Link up and visit other blogs and see everyone else's list!

I've talked about running an Iron Man and going Paleo before, but here a a few more things I don't think I'd ever want to do:

1. Get a lip tattoo.
You may or may not know (I can't remember if I've talked about it) but I have one tattoo. It's located on my upper middle back and it's my name in Japanese. No, I've never been to Japan. Yes, I know it's spelled/written correctly because I did a lot of research and created the tattoo myself and had a Japanese friend double check my work. Anyway. I don't know what the deal is with people getting tattoos on the inside of their lips. Don't people know that your mouth is the part of your body with the most and grossest bacteria? Not to mention you have to pull your lip out like a baboon for anyone to see it. To me the idea is just ridiculous.

2. Move to another country.
Being a blogger, I guess I am exposed to a lot of different travel and expat blogs and it gives me wanderlust like whoa. There are so many places I'd love to visit (Thailand, New Zealand, pretty much all of Europe, and Italy just to name a few) but I could never see myself living in another country, even if it was just for a short period of time. It was something I would have loved to try in college, when I had no responsibilities or serious relationships to worry about, but now it is just something that wouldn't work out.

3. Open a restaurant.
Been there, done that. Although it was pretty cool to say my parents owned and ran their own restaurant, it wasn't always fun. There were late nights and weekends where I couldn't hang out with my friends because I had to help out. I don't (in any way) resent my parents for the restaurant, but I truly believe it is an experience that I can have just once, and I'll be okay with it.

4. Get another perm.
I will spare you guys the pictures. It wasn't that bad... but my hair is naturally pretty wavy so it isn't like I really needed a perm. But I was 16 and I didn't listen to anyone and I got a perm. Then I cried and cried. Then I cut my hair off above my shoulders, making the whole thing look that much worse. Hand on the Bible, never ever again.

What are some things on your Bump-It list?? Link up below!

That was fun! My bump it list would be like "wearing socks with sandals", "having old lady chin hair" - stuff that's a red flag to society that you no longer have self respect / care. :)

Lynsey @ Eternally Wanderlyn said...

I would love to live in another country! But I could never get a lip tattoo or those giant gage earrings.

Rachel said...

I had not even heard of lip tattoos before. And good job doing all of the work to make sure your tattoo was correct! My cousin has a kanji tattoo that is upside down...I don't think she knows but I know because I can read Chinese characters...most people she'll meet can't, though, so I figure I probably shouldn't tell her.

Meighan said...

no perms?! oh come on...

Helene in Between said...

haha this is so great. a perm tho, i can see it! i am with you on lip tattoos! but i could maybe move to another country if the opportunity presented itself, you never know!!

Amanda - Voyage of the MeeMee said...

SHOW US THE PERM!!!!!!! I'll be the judge of if it was "that bad" or not, thankyouverymuch! ;P

alyssa said...

What a cool idea for a link up! I definitely hear you on the living abroad thing. As much as I am dying to travel and see as much of the world as I can, all I know is how to be an American Gal and at this ripe old age of 25, I don't think I'm up for learning how to live anywhere else!

Jamie Vespa said...

Love your list! I like the theory of moving to another country, but then I think about all of the differences & realize that I'd rather travel frequently & still call America home.

brooke lyn said...

i want photo proof of this perm you speak of!

Corie said...

When I was younger, around 7 or 8, my step-mom at the time made me get a perm and it was HORRIBLE. I looked exactly like Shirly Temple!

Margaret said...

I did live in another country for a year after I graduated high school. And while that year was amazing- I definitely couldn't see myself doing that now! Heck, I don't even see myself ever moving out of Ohio and being away from my family.

Good list girl! Especially the lip tattoo- gross.

allieology said...

I feel like I heard somewhere that lip tattoos eventually fade away all together. Sorry, but not letting someone shove needles into my lip for something not to be there FOR-EV-ER.

Kellee the Caffeinated said...

Hahaha years ago when I worked at the tattoo shop, a bunch of us wanted matching lip tattoos... Unfortunately or fortunately I was pregnant and couldn't be tattooed... My brother, sister in law, ex husband and a bunch of our friends still have them 8 years later... not me!

Steph G said...

Ugh, lip tattoos. Everything about them seem painful. Also, I think it would make things taste bad. This is coming from the girl that doesn't have a tattoo :)

Kayla MKOY said...

AH a perm?! I can never imagine getting one of those!! LOL

Brianna said...

This is such a clever idea! All of those sound like things I would actually like to do, but I know I never will. Too much work!

Jessica Mitchell said...

LIP TATTOOS ... They look SO painful.

I always wanted a perm... because I have stick straight hair .. But everyone has told me not to. I'll just take the extra time to curl it!

Great List!
