I Don’t Have The GUTS…

By |
So over at Moments That Define Life, Nicole (a super cool blogger) hosts this fun list meme called Listable Life. She provides the perfect little prompt to get you thinking and then writing. Best of all, it’s in list form. That means its fast, concise, and quirky. Today’s list is about guts.

 Five Things I Don’t Have The Guts To Do: 
1. Touch, hold, or even look at a turtle. I hate them. I know some people find them cute, but to be quite honest if I were given a choice I’d rather be holed up somewhere with a spider than a turtle. *shudders.
I can hardly handle the copy and pasting that took place just now.
2. Quit Facebook. I have been so annoyed with the supposed “book” of faces lately. It seems as if I’m only friends with weird brands like Land ‘O Lakes Butter, and people I used to babysit. Most of the cool kids have left Facebook. People like my brothers and my sister. They’re so much cooler than me. But somehow, I just don’t have the guts to walk away just yet. The real reason is, I will avoid, at all costs, the inevitable and morbidly disgraceful RE-entrance to facebook. Because it seems like they always DO comeback. I’d rather wait til I know for sure that Facebook is DEAD before I leave it.
3. Go blonde. Highlights, sure—but they really don’t look that great on me. My forte is a nice, solid brunette and sometimes a little red thrown in the mix.
 But to just go all out BLONDE is craaaaaazy. Confession: I have entertained the idea just because it would be so drastic and different. I mean, I’m pretty sure if I did it—without telling anyone first—people would flip. This sounds like SO much fun, doesn’t it? Ah, but those danged guts. I don’t have them.
4. Move my blog to WordPress. Again, like Facebook, all the cool kids are doing it. But I just don’t have the energy to try all that. I was actually, long ago, going to revamp my whole site. I was even going to meet with a web designer and do it all professional-like. But then my body started falling apart and the next thing I knew I was scheduled for two hand surgeries. So…yah. Suddenly WordPress wasn’t so important.
5. Vlog. I don’t have the guts to talk into a my webcam and then post that on my blog. I hate the sound of my voice, I look confused whenever a camera is on me, and I sound so much better when I can go back and delete stuff/revise it. I’m not tech savvy enough to know how to edit a video. Therefore, I have no guts to vlog. And I’m actually fine with that. I don’t think anyone’s really missing out on anything in that department. 
There you have it. What do you lack the intestines for?

    Sick! I’ve never held one and I cannot imagine the horror of one peeing on me! Someday, I’ll summon the guts for WP…someday.

    I’m the same way with mice. truly the most frightening thing I know of.

    Hmm. I guess their tales are pretty disgusting, now that I think about it. And ones with the pink eyes? Yah, they are truly frightening.

    You know, I actually paid for hosting too–I think it’s expired by now, or I need to repay or something. It’s just so scary. Are you sure you’re not afraid of turtles too?

    Holy Crap, did you just crawl into my brain and steal my thoughts numbered 2-5? I literally JUST NOW finished recording my first vlog. I sat down to upload it and saw this post and read it first.

    Great list! I would also love to walk away from FB but I just.can’t.do.it. Sigh. And vlogging…that would be awesome, but I hate listening to my voice on voicemails, videos, etc. I can’t imagine willingly loading up a clip of me talking for the world to see. *shudder* ????

    Did something traumatic in your life happen early on with turtles? Just wondering – cause I don’t remember any event that would justify the creepiness you feel about them:) Now spiders…. that’s a whole different situation!!

  8. hilljean

    Your list is a good one ???? I love turtles but wish I had the guts to hold big spiders. And as for the blonde thing – I’m not entirely sure it would suit me but I’m going to do the black with red highlighty things soon.

    1) After being peed on by one in elementary school, I’ve also had a life-long aversion to turtles. 2) Get on over to wordpress…you’ll love it.

    You could TOTALLY do #4 & 5 for sure. I understand #3, I had a mild panic attack when I got highlights, I’m bad with hair changes. Quitting Facebook! No way. Couldn’t do it.

  11. hilljean

    Seriously! I know that Facebook just bought instagram so maybe that will provide the perfect exit strategy for us all.

  12. hilljean

    Ha! Well, for the sake of all the gentlemen out there, maybe you better stay away from vlogging ????
