    I'm getting old, it feels like. Things just hurt for no reason.

Question: What would you do if you knew that you had only one year to live. Is it changing anything in your goals, day by day routine etc? [permalink]

    That's a good question... I imagine it would change just about everything, yeah.

    Edit (some hours later): well maybe not so much change, just shifting of priorities, and some things on an accelerated schedule. I'd definitely want to get a rim-to-rim-to-rim grand canyon run in, which otherwise would probably be a few years out (I'll probably do rim to rim before trying the return trip). Also other skills which I've been developing could probably be put to a use sooner than they would otherwise (a live improv super8 album, maybe?). I'd spend less time coding, unless it was something I wanted to use immediately...
