Top Ten Things I Avoid

· The one where I talk about shit I avoid like the plague. ·

March 1, 2017 10 Comments

Top Ten is a monthly feature--the topic changes.

In no particular order:

  1. Conflict. Because–ugh–who likes it?
  2. Empire-waist dresses. They just look really shitty on me.
  3. Working right up to a deadline…even though I do my best work under pressure.
  4. Being passive-aggressive…even though sometimes it’s emotionally safer.
  5. Peppers and fish. No one likes a trip to the ER.
  6. People that don’t do what they’re supposed to, when they’re supposed to (I know, I’m behind…but I won’t be soon)
  7. Shopping for clothes. They never fit right. Ever.
  8. Judgmental/prejudice people. Just…ugh. I don’t have time for that in my life.
  9. Being sick/sick people. My immune system sucks, thankyouverymuch.
  10. News. Because there’s nothing more depressing.

Check out what everyone else avoids:

    OMG…SO MUCH NUMBER SIX. (My rage isn’t aimed at you. Promise. However, other people… )

    Great list. I’m nodding emphatically at #6 right now, but all very good things to avoid. 🙂

    nice list. I’d love to avoid working up until deadlines but it seems to be the default, lol.

    I love your list especially the clothes shopping and prejudiced people. As Sis and I always say – People suck. We like individuals, but as a whole people just suck big time.

    It’s a real thing. When we plan and organize shit, we like follow-through. *nods sagely* This could also be a Gemini thing…

    Yes. #6 is a favorite pet peeve. When I was in college I *hated* group projects for this very reason.

    Oh, I know (says the girl that has fucked up deadlines twice now). It seems life gets in the way of all my grandiose plans. Either that, or I get a huge endorphin/adrenaline rush with a looming deadline and it’s soooo much easier.

    I knew you’d like this one. Sometimes I want to walk around in a bubble with a cloud of Lysol spraying outside it. I should probably buy hand sanitizer in 55-gallon drums.

    See, I thought about putting ‘people’ on my list, but that’s kind of antisocial and one of my goals for 2017 is to be less antisocial. **whispers** I agree, though. 100%.
