30 Days of Blogging Honesty (+1 Dare) – Day 20

“I’m half-naked, cold, tired, hungry, hurt, wet and just washed up on a deserted island.  The first things I need to do to survive is…”

So I’m gonna be completely honest, I am not an outdoorsy kind of gal.  I like going for walks, or hikes, but I hate extended periods in the wilderness, especially if I’m far from civilization.  Part of it is that I get bored with nature easily, but a big part of it is, I’m absolutely useless when it comes to survival skills.

My boyfriend and I went for a hike, and nighttime came before we got back to the car.  Every bit of wind rustling the leaves made me freak out, I hated it.  I kept thinking “gee, this is how a horror film starts”.

If the scenario in this question actually passed out, I know I probably wouldn’t survive.  I’d probably end up eating poisonous berries, or getting mauled by native animals or something.  Or I’d die of thirst.

I know the question asks “the first things I need to do to survive”, but honestly, the first thing I’d do is probably cry.  I’d throw myself a big pity-party and just cry-cry-cry.  I think after that the first thing I’d do is search for water or food.  Making more plans than that is probably a bit too much for someone like me to handle.

  1. Haha, funny you! The part with “gee, this is how a horror film starts”, had me in stitches. I’m the opposite from you, I love being out and about, even camping and going somewhere faraway from civilization is a YAY for me. But don’t think that I don’t go fully prepared about it 🙂

  2. I don’t think I’d cry first but there’d definitely be some serious weeping at some point. I mean, I’m assuming there isn’t much else to do on this deserted island but try to survive and then cry, right?
