Never Doing This Again

Recently I created an anti-bucket list of things I never want to do. That got me thinking about things I wish I had never done.

Candy making class

Candy making class
This is one of those ideas that sounds good on paper: group of girlfriends takes a candy making class together. Here's where it went horribly wrong. 1) Unless it's chocolate I don't really like candy. 2) The instructor was a bitchy queen who obviously wished he was anywhere but with us. 3) I def do not need to know how to make myself endless supplies of candy at home. 4) The end product is def not worth the effort. Candy making is HARD!
