50 Things I Would Rather Do Than Watch March Madness
All Rookie

It's no secret that I'm not a big sports fan. While I love going to games and having fun cheering with the rest of the crowd, I don't particularly like watching games on TV. This is a list of things I would rather do than watch the March Madness tournament:

1. Homework.

Yeah... read that again. I would rather work on homework than watch the basketball tournament that has everyone else going crazy.

2. Not eat sugar for a week.

Anyone who knows me, knows how much I love sugar and candy.

3. Clean a public restroom.

So many people, so many bodily fluids...

4. Watch a film in a foreign language, without subtitles.

It would be tough, but I would still like it more.

5. Relive middle school.

I think most of us can agree, those awkward, emotional middle school years were the worst.

6. Count to one million.

Can you imagine how long that would take??

7. Give Megan a foot message.

My sister Megan has weird, clammy feet...

8. Travel to the coldest place on Earth.


9. Take an Econ class.

The only class I've ever done badly in because I just don't understand it, is Economics.

10. Alphabetize my DVDs and books.

I actually like organizing and alphabetizing, but this would take a very long time

11. Eat the spiciest wings available at Buffalo Wild Wings.

I can barely handle the medium wings. I usually eat the mild ones.

12. Listen to only the Kidz Bop versions of songs for a week.

That would be the worst.

13. Stare at a wall.


14. Go on a vacation and not be able to leave the hotel.

No beach. No ocean. Just hotel room.

15. Be spit on by a llama.

Ew, gross!

16. Do a 10,000 piece puzzle.

Do these exist? That would take forever!

17. Learn a new language.

J'aime apprendre des langues.

18. Watch every episode of Teletubbies in a row.

Can you even imagine?

19. Hold a snake.

I don't like them!

20. Sing in front of a huge crowd.

Since I was a child, I have loved to sing. However, I also have an extreme fear of singing alone in front of others.

21. Order a supreme, thin crust pizza.

I don't like supreme pizza. I'm not a fan of thin crust pizza. But I'd rather order one than watch the basketball tournament on TV this month.

22. Teach a subject I know nothing about to high school students.

Teaching a subject I don't know to a bunch of teenagers who don't want to be in school anyway... sounds like a blast! ;)

23. Plant a garden.

I don't do well with plants, they always die.

24. Read the dictionary.

Learning new words could be entertaining...

25. Be interrupted by Kanye West.

I'm going to let you finish this list but...

26. Smell vinegar.

I despise vinegar, it literally makes me gag.

27. Have a squirrel throw an acorn at my head.


28. Go to a circus full of clowns.

I'm terrified of clowns...

29. Eat only vegetables for a week.

If you know me, you know I don't do vegetables.

30. Go to a country music concert.

I like almost every kind of music...except country and rap.

31. Paint my walls gray.

That would be so dreary!

32. Do the dishes with soggy food on them.

DISGUSTING. Dishes with food on them in the sink freaks me out.

33. Watch all of George Clooney's movies.

I don't know what it is about him, but he irritates me.

34. Change a baby's poopy diaper.

Self-explanatory. No one wants to do that.

35. Go to the doctor.

I try to avoid going to the doctor as much as possible.

36. Take quantum physics.

I actually wouldn't hate this, as I used to study physics, but it would still be really hard.

37. Try escargot.

Slimy, icky snails.

38. Get lost in a city I don't know.

Wandering around an unknown city would actually be fun.

39. Listen to every "Eddie" song in a row.

Inside joke. Basically, every time my mom plays Eddie Vedder I sigh and complain.

40. Smell like onions for a month.


41. Watch the Weather Channel.

So boring, but the music is relaxing!

42. Go through a haunted house.

I really don't like scary.

43. Sleep with socks on.

I can't...

44. Clean the windows of a skyscraper.

So. Many. Windows.

45. Study for finals ahead of time.

I'm the queen of procrastination.

46. Count the rocks in my driveway.

That would be a long, dull job.

47. Go through my entire inbox.

I currently have 7415 emails in my inbox... not exaggerating.

48. Go to a wedding and not eat cake.

I really like wedding cake.

49. Not read for a month.

I would go crazy. I am a huge bookworm and could not live without my books!

50. Be sneezed on by Macy.

Last but not least, I would be sneezed on by my sister. This comes from a (funny to others) story. A couple years ago, my sister was eating a salad and randomly sneezed and spit a piece of lettuce on me. It was so gross, and I instantly started gagging. As disgusting as it was though, I would still prefer it to being caught up in the whirlwind that is March Madness.
