I recently finished Netflix’s new show No Tomorrow. It’s a witty comedy/romance about a woman (Evie) who falls in
love with a man (“Zavier” with an “X”) who’s calculated and predicted that the world is going to end in several months from to an asteroid impact. “The apocalypse is neigh”, Xavier half-jokingly, half-seriously says. And so begin some of the best times of Evie’s life, as they live “carpe diem” and cross things off their “Apocalists” (read: bucket lists) there’s no tomorrow. (Cue credits)
It was honestly such a fun show to watch, and from the first episode I was hooked by the fact that Evie is the TOTAL organization freak. She loves lists, which is partly the reason why she gave in to creating her own Apocalist even though Xavier’s apocalypse theory itself seemed wacky.
And so, since I’ve been a huge fan of “seizing the day” lately, and I’ve ALWAYS been a huge fan of lists, AND I’ve long wanted to make a bucket list but hated the idea of calling it a “bucket list”… I sat down and made my very own Apocalist in my Bullet Journal! This is the first page (of two):
So here are 11 of my favourite things on my Apocalist!
1. Act in a play 2. Learn salsa/tango/ballroom dancing
3. Do a 5k
4. Do a 10k
10. Write a novel
25. Get a tattoo
33. Paint a wall
34. Be an extra in a movie
71. Sleep under the stars
74. Learn to box
122. Become a certified yoga instructor
128. Study classical Latin
