I jacked this from the INFJ thread, but I posted this on here because I was curious. :) What would you guys do?

This was my reply:I would drop out of school, and work part-time at a medium-paced job, doing something I like. I would aim to save up a certain sum of money so that it can be used to provide for my family after i am gone. I'd most likely use that money to buy some kind of bond or a 5-10 year CD, so that the interest would accrue and this can be used for something worthwhile by my family. Ideally, for a summer vacation sometime down their lives. Our family has been planning to go to this specific place, and has been saving up for that so I'd want my savings to be used years later, when my family has gotten over the grief, and can think back of me and smile.

Outside of work.. I would feel free to enjoy life. Go to the beach as often as I want. Paint a lot. Sing a lot, even though I suck. take dancing lessons, take more music lessons, do all the things i wanted to do but wasn't able to do. Eat a lot of chocolate, go on a cruise, enjoy all the small things in life. Ironically, the idea of having a certain amount of time to live is very appealing to me. It gives me a sense of closure... and because i know my timeframe, i would act accordingly. With life right now, I feel like things are unsettled which kind of irks me, I have to often balance the ideal and practical -- what i want to do versus what i should do. but since i have the time frame, i'd just do what i want to do instead of pursuing my ambitions in grad school. the idea of knowing this makes me feel liberated in a sense.

I would live life with no regrets.


And. as one of the last, last, last things I would make amends with everyone, whether i wronged them, or they wronged me.

I'd go on a 6 month vacation with my wife. Probably go to some beaches, lounge around, drink, scuba dive, eat a bunch of good food (especially desert), and probably die with sand between my toes, a drink in my hand, and about 15 pounds heavier.

Well, certainly, a lot of my time would be free, since it is currently allocated to fulfilling long term plans, so i guess i would try to spend most of my time as quality time with my girlfriend on different occasions, in different places, etc. this might sound superficial, but... i really tend to aim for long term goals, so... i would not have much to do. Of course, i would want to try the usual, bucket list crazy stuff like skydiving and that, but i guess that is very common.

If I could fight whatever it was (cancer, tumor) I would. I wouldn't be willing to go down without a fight. There are too many people depending upon me.

I'd be very concerned with setting my family up for survival without me. Not that my ISFP husband couldn't do it, but I pay all the bill and handle the accounts. I also do all the laundry and clean the toilets. I don't like to think of day to day life without me to run it.
I would plan my funeral so my family wouldn't have to worry about it.

Beside that, I would want to be at the beach as much as possible. I can't really explain it, I just feel freer and happier at the beach. I would want to do a lot of simple, everyday things together that my kids would always remember us doing. I would also make videos for them, reading their favorite books, saying their favorite prayers, singing their favorite songs with them.

I would eat as much chocolate and cheesecake as I could. I would try to eat at as many good restaurants as possible. I would buy fancy underwear. Probably in a size bigger to accommodate the chocolate and cheesecake and fancy cuisine.

Was it egotistical for me to assume that 6 months to live was an impending doom like an asteroid or meteor (but for some reason, the world operated as usual with no panic)?

If it wasn't and it was just me dying, I'd like to add that I would try to impregnate my wife to ensure my immortality.

I also won't go down without a fight. I refuse to just 'believe' that fate (doctor, priest, witch doctor, spirits, universe, deity..) says that I'm gonna die in 6 months, I'm too stubborn to die.

So, I don't think I'll do anything different in particular. I find the idea of quietly, obediently accepting a foretold demise as distasteful. If absolutely must, I'd rather die not believing that I'm gonna die to the last second.

I'd be sure to impregnate my girlfriend. Then I would take some heavy loans, buy the necessary equipment and then proceed to kill everyone that makes the world a bad place to live.

If I am going to die, I might as well make the world better by removing some pests.

Iv had the "6 month to live" thing very seriously in my personal life. I had a three percent chance to surive after surgery and treatments. I took that damn three percent and ran with it. All the time before the risky surgery, I spent alot of my time with my family. We went places, mostly to the zoo, because at the time I was 13 and loved animals. I lived much simpler. I experimented with cullinary skills. I simply took life as it was and realized just how wonderful it was. I still got in fights with my parents, I didnt focus on school so much, and threw myself headfirst into religion. Now, I am proud to say that I am in my last year of highschool, still going through a different form of treatments, but living life as normally as I can in my situation. I am still involved with my church, and have a part time job at the local burger place. I have big dreams of going to college next year, and have just recently started a relationship with a very wonderful man. :laughing: that damn three percent didnt define my life. I define my life.

I would fight it as hard as I could, as long as I could, assuming it's some sort of sickness.

But ignoring this fact, I would visit every person I've ever had any sort of relationship with, whether it be good or bad, and talk. Then I would travel the world and become a foodie, throw the opening pitch in Fenway, cook an eight course meal for my closest friends, sky dive, and write a best-selling novel.

What's that you say? I couldn't get all of this done in 6 months? Well you're wrong. :laughing:
