25 Things That Seem Fun Until You Actually Do Them

You can probably think of several things off the top of your head that you think would be really fun to do. To some extent, we are all dreamers. Now imagine if the way you are thinking of your dreams in your head are very unlike the way they are in reality.

For example, you may have always wanted to go and live in Switzerland. It’s an amazing and beautiful country. But when you actually go live, there you may not have realized that you need to learn another language, that the people aren’t as friendly as the English speaking country from which you are coming, that there are very strict ways of doing things (no flushing the toilet after 10pm), and that it will take some time to get acclimated to such a different culture and way of doing things.

This is what this list is about. It’s about the things that you glamorize in your head, but then in reality, they are nowhere near what you had expected. Of course, as usual, some of these will just be for fun (as in they are not serious, so don’t get mad). These are 25 things that seem fun until you actually do them!
