I Regret Nothing - Jen Lancaster (2015)


In her latest memoir, I Regret Nothing, Jen Lancaster has decided to craft a bucket list in order to live life more fully and with no regrets. Now that she's over 40 (basically middle-aged), she reasons this is the perfect time to work towards all of the things we tell ourselves we want to do "someday". With her sharp sense of humour and stream-of-consciousness reasoning, she sets out to build, and begin checking items off, her bucket list; items which include learning to ride a bike, getting a passport, learning a new language, and having a conversation with an icon. Some of the items she is able to check off fairly easily, others take a bit more effort. All are accompanied with a large dose of the laugh-out-loud humour we've come to expect from Ms Lancaster. I've enjoyed all of Jen Lancaster's memoirs but there was something different for me about I Regret Nothing. This particular book inspired me to write my own bucket list. At a certain point in one's life, it seems natural to take stock of what you've done and what you would still like to achieve, whether it's travelling to the homeland of your ancestors or learning something new just for your own enlightenment. When all is said and done, I'm sure we can agree that regretting nothing really is the new black. (LEK)
