Things I do not have to do

I’ve been really tense lately, worrying about things I have to do or things I want to do but can’t, or things that are completely out of my control.

It’s oh so very much fun.

What I’m doing to combat that is to list the things that I really don’t have to do at all.

2. I do not have to reupholster a couch.

3. I do not have to forage for my food. Well done there.

4. I don’t have to realphabetize my books.

5. It is not necessary that I bench press a refrigerator.

6. I don’t have to stop drinking beer.

7. Learning a new language is not required.

8. I don’t have to worry about a flock of starlings taking up residence in my home.

9. There is no reason for me to calculate algebraic equations. Specifically matrices. I could never understand those goddamn things.

10. I don’t have to conjugate Latin verbs.
