A Genital Herpes Bucket List ~
Do you have an STD? Do you have an STD and feel like life is over, things will never be the same, the universe hates you, and the world is simultaneously ending?!?
If you answered yes to any of the above, I understand; nevertheless, I am here to tell you you’re wrong.
Gasp! How could you, right?!?! How insensitive of me.
Well, not really. The deal is…..STDs suck, they aren’t fun, and they’re not something someone ever hopes to get, especially, the ones you’re stuck with for life, like genital herpes.
But, STDs are not the end – even herpes.
They do not mean you cannot be a lawyer, a ninja, Mother Teresa, an athlete, Chuck Norris, the next Oprah, a great mother/father, an American Idol, etc., etc….. I think you get the point. :-)
So, to prove this point, I am going to post my personal ‘genital herpes bucket list’ or rather, Jenelle Marie’s bucket list. As I achieve the items on here, I’ll cross them out – this list isn’t new, so you’ll see I’ve already achieved ninja status.
Well, not really……but I could.
