*sweeps art trade journal under rug* okay guys hiding that one until I feel like taking art trades again, if you commented there I'll be sure to check it out when I am in a ' tradey' mood.
Also I finished a MAP part today so yay!: www.youtube.com/watch?v=uWGkF1…
Anyway thought I'd make a new journal to hide that one *ahem* 150 odd comments is a lot to sieve through XD
So, new topic, today O was watching Tv (I tend to do that sometimes funny enough) and a documentary was on about how people are living longer and why and how things have changed and clips from past documentaries on old age (blah blah you get it) and it got me thinking of my opinion on it all.
I personally Do not want to live till I am old at all, the oldest I ever want to be is 40 and that is if my live is going good and no this isn't just some 'oh I am an emo kid who wants to die' it's nothing like that, I just generally don't see the point in living long enough to suffer from memory loss and not being able to care for yourself.
Any animal that got to that stage would surely die without aid
And rightly so any human at that age would die without medical care and helpers (we are talking 70+ here by the way just to keep you up to speed) now I know there are people who live this old and are fine and take care of themselves but they are few and far between and this is not to say I want old people to die (hell no I love my grandma and she is in her 60's) I just personally don't want to die of old age, I guess you could just shrug me off as some youthful pride after thought but I've always thought this it's just how I personally see things,
If I got to a point where I needed daily drugs to keep me going or serious surgery (that was needed for an ailment and not me breaking my leg getting hit by a car or that sort of thing) I would simply refuse and except my time is near. I don't want to live forever or plan for a long future I like to live in the moment I very rarely put thought in to what's a head, hence why I have done so many courses in random things and still no idea what I want as a career.
You don't have to agree with me but I can't help but wonder why is it people want to live forever? Is it because of fear of death? Does anyone else here not fear death? I am not scared of death but I'm not exactly wishing for it either I just accept its a part of life.
So what is your opinion of long life spans? Do you want to live forever? Why?
