My Life in Emojis

#LifePhilosophy • September 1, 2020

I am a male living in the United States. That means that my current life expectancy is ~76 years. That sounds like a lot of time, but I really wanted to see what that looked like visually.

 So I made a lot of boxes with each box representing 1 month.

I threw in some important milestones in my life to give all that time some context.

🐣I’m born in October 1993 // 🚸I start kindergarten // 🎒 I start elementary school // ✝️ 9/11 happens // 🏫 I start high school // 🎓 I start college // ⛰️ I start mountain climbing // 👔 I start my career // 🏠 I move into my first apartment // 💗 I fall in love // 💍 I get engaged //  😷The COVID-19 pandemic begins // ⚰️ When I’m expected to die // 💯 I live to 100!

My only takeaway after seeing it all laid out like this: life is beautifully short, wonderful, and precious. 

So much to look forward to.
