As I've already said in the first No Regrets post, I'd rather regret the things I've done than regret the things I haven't done. And there are a lot of things I want to do besides the 19 previously listed 'tasks' because ideas seem to be popping up left and right. Therefore, since these keep coming out of nowhere, I really should get to them, because life is short.
Like I said in the previous post, I'm not talking about that YOLO bullshit, because you don't only live once, you don't get only one life to live. That's a fact. The sooner you realize that the better. Call me heretic, but one day you'll call me right. Either way, I think it's smart to make sure you'll be 70 and have as few regrets as possible so we should all go out and do stuff till we can. Not next month, not when you get a man, not when you find a better job, not when your kids grow up, not when you fall into a certain age bracket or annual income bracket or any kind of bracket, but now. Start planning and get to it. Time's awasting.
If you do in fact swear by the YOLO mantra, then you already have your clock relentlessly and quite viciously ticking away and when its batteries run out, you're basically screwed so there's no point in wasting time, right? But if you believe you'll one day come back and be able to do all the fun stuff that you aren't taking the time to do now, you still should rethink your strategy. What if you come back as a male elephant and you'll have to drink elephant piss every time you'll want to get laid? What if you come back as a penguin and all you'll get out of life is ice, snow, having sex once and only once a year, more snow and more ice? What if you come back as a mosquito? Even if you like S&M, getting slapped as a mosquito has to suck, right?
So life, as you know it, is short, even if there are 17 more to live and it would be pretty stupid not to utilize and squeeze the shit out of the one you're living right now. Right? That's how I see things. That's why I'm updating my original list so nothing slips my mind and below are things I want to get done before I go because there's a chance I'll come back in my next life as an alien life form on a planet where they won't have Malibu. Or segways. Or maybe I'll return to this planet as a sea cucumber and then I'll really be fucked.
