Suicide.

Seriously. I'm approximately 22 hours by plane from my fiance. Which means that with a moments notice, I'd probably take at least 40 hours to get there.

What am I going to do with my last 24 hours except brood over not seeing her again?

I would call all of my friends and family and say good-bye and tell them how much I love them.

Hmm ... I would have to agree w/ ThisGuy ...

I would hate knowing that i only have 24hrs left and that there was nothing i could do to control it. First i'd write to everyone or call them and tell them i love them and i'm sorry for everything ... and be on my way to 'a better place'

I'd write a letter to each of my close friends and family, telling them how much I love them. Then, I'd write one last entry in my journal, then get my dad to drive me to the lake, the rocky part, and I would watch the waves there until I die.

Yeah, that sounds good.

honestly? I'd probably go out and spend money on some extravagant things. Maybe I'd gather all my friends and family and have a huge dinner party in some fancy resort with all types of fancy food and people to take care of them and I'd tell each and every one of them just how much I loved them. I'd also love to go and tell off a few people who have screwed me in the past Oh... and I'd also like to have sex.. well, I'm being honest!

Interesting.

Yup, I would probably write letters to all my friends and family and then just spend some quiet, quality time with them.

Normal, safe and boring reply eh?

I'd have to tell my firends my true thoughts and feelings about them, for some that will include telling them off a few times. I'd go see my daughter whom i've not seen for almost a year (she's gonna be 2, Feb 9). Oh and Sex, sex would be good as long as it doesn't kill me earlier. Maybe visit my gf grandparents since they've never met me.

I might just stare at the ceiling breathiung through a tube in my nose though, depends on the events leading up to the doc sayin that i have 24 hours to live.

Thats so tough. I would probobly go to my friend (who is kind of my bf) and let him know that I'll always love him. I'd tell him all my deepest secrets. Then I'd go spend some time with my ex- best friend. We got into a fight over a guy about 3 months ago. So stupid. Then I'd sit and write a letter to everyone I didn't see, cos I don't have much time left. I'd tell them I love them and I will be with them forever. Then I'd get into my favorite outfit (my baggy jeans, my slipknot tank, and my coal-chamber hoodie). I'd put on all my fav jewelry (rubber bracelets, my paperclip necklace, evil necklace, and my ball chain necklace). I'd go find my bf again. And I'd lay in his arms as I died. Damn. Thats so depressing to think about.

I would spend it with my family and my friends and I'de have a party. I think it would be great to have a party to celebrate having 24 more hours...because not everybody gets to have that much time to say goodbye and do everything they want.

Tell one of my best friends that I love him and that I think hes one of the best guys on earth. I'de kiss him. (I atleast want a french kiss before I die.) That guy is sooo sweet. I'de want to have sex with him before I die. (but only if he wanted to, also)

At my funeral I want a plain unfinished cofin...I want everybody to sign it in bright colors of sharpie permanent markers.
Then I want it coated with something that will make the marker stay. Then I want to be buried next to a a little pine tree. And I wanted decorated in x-mas decorations. (all year round.) No matter what season it is.

Well honestly, first I would write personal letters to all of my family and friends. I would take a few minutes to just lay around and stare into the sky and think about absolutely everything. Then I would take the 22 minute long bus ride to my guy-friend's (not boyfriend's- if you've read my last question entitaled "I've lost him forever..") house and spend my last hours there in his arms watching the sun set, or sun rise, or whatever comes first. I couldn't imagine anyone better to spend my final time with than him.

I'd do the same as ThisGuy, because I am about 22 plane hours away from my guy... However, I'd only proced after teary good byes from my friends and sitting on the hill above my town and looking down on the city and all the way to France.

How good that we never know that sort of thing.

Go to as many broadway musical as I can with my family and friends. Then fly down the Las Vegas and eat at all those really nice resturant and pig out at the buffets, cause if you're going then you gotta go stuffed! Go on a shopping spree and see the golden gate bridge one last time.

George Carlin, the comedian, used to say that if he knew precisely when he was going to die, he'd go to a revival where they were doing faith healing and get up on the stage and die right when they were trying to heal him. And hey, if the healing thing worked, there was nothing to lose!

Me, I'd spend it with my partner and my cats. Update my will... call my parents to let them know... and the rest of the day, just be with my love. Can't think of anything that'd be better to do with the time.

I would have all of my family at my house... and I would just spend that time telling them how much I love them. And I would also confess my feelings for my best friend Stewart and do all I could with him! haha! But mostly, I would spend my remaining time with the people I love the most. Oh yeah, and I would pray to God to let me in Heaven... hehe...

If I had 24 hours to live I would spend sometime saying goodbye to my family & friends. I would eat spagetti bolognase and drink milk. I would write a will and leave instructions for my funeral. I would pray for my grandmother and great grandparents to look after me in the afterlife. My last 10 hours would be spent with my cats watching my fav X-Files videos and writing goodbye letters which would probably be tearstained.

For my funeral I would send invitations to all the cast and crew of The X-Files and everyone I knew in my life.

The service would be at St Johns church in my hometown, and if I could be buried there I would (It was closed for burials in 1939).

I also want to be embalmed in a Scully suit :0)

I'd kiss my love and my family goodbye...

I'd pack a few things to have a good time and climb a mountain...

Up there you can find the kind of peace I would like to feel in my last hours...

That's an excellent question.

I'd probably start hyperventilating and I know if I was getting any news even remotely related to that, then my boyfriend would be with me at the time. To calm down I'd want to go on a walk. Just walk to where no one else is and sit with him. Preferably near the ocean. I'd want to go swimming one last time. Then go crawl into bed with my boyfriend, listening to Pink Floyd and Led Zepplin, have sex, and fall asleep in his arms.

...what are you all waiting for?
I try to live each day like it'll be my last -- because, not to be negative, but it could be!
Death shouldn't be an excuse to tell everyone you love them, fix broken friendships, or enjoy yourself.
Why are you wasting today?

just a thought

adara...sometimes it's not that easy...

i had a dream the other day that i wasn't going have much time to live...and i went to my great friend/ex boyfriend/love's house and i went up to his room and he hugged me and cried for a long time. i told him i was "leaving" soon and i whispered to him that i loved him, and he said the same and he just held me. i think i would do that too.

i would tell him now....if i could...but that can't happen (im afraid of getting hurt some more)

i would also spend a lot of time with my very large family and friends and write like there was no tomorrow(well cos there wouldn't be) and hopefully get it all published. i'd also make a website sharing all the pictures of my life...so people would know who i was...

Honestly...
I'd have sex with my boyfriend. We've decided to wait for a while because of all the risks, but hey, if I'm gonna die, then I'm not going to have to worry about the consequences. Then I'd eat all of the chocolate I could find. Then I'd say my last good-byes to my loved ones, take my teddy bear who I've had all of my life, and go lay in the grass and look at the sky until I passed on.
