Test your English!

I said this to my friend today, “I don’t want a cookie cutter life.” What do you guys think is the meaning? I’ll be super impressed if you get it 😊

    You guys are mostly right! Good job. :) As someone mentioned earlier, cookie cutters are used to make the same shaped cookies. So a cookie cutter life is a life that is routine and like everyone else. For example, a cookie cutter life is a life where you go to school, graduate, get a job, marry, raise a family and then grow old. Saying you don’t want that kind of life implies you’re bored or want new challenges and excitement in your life. It means you don’t want to fall into the trap of having a routine, be too comfortable and follow normalcy. Good job guys 🥳

    You don't want a life of one size fits all, you want to have other interesting things to do, and you don't like what you're busy with every day, but you can't help it. You feel your time is occupied by what you don't like. You want to try something new! It's just my personal understanding, because I've had similar experiences.
