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.
