life is ours to choose, we just forget how to make choices

How to die without dying:


Learn something new 

change your name 

change your wardrobe 



cut strings 

tie new ones 

cut your hair 

dye your hair 

get a cat 

get a dog 

go to a fair

go to a festival 

listen to music you’ve never heard and listen to it loud 

learn a language 

learn an instrument 

leave town for a few days 

get an apartment somewhere 

find a bookshop find a hole-in-the-wall coffee shop 

become a regular 

stop going somewhere 

start going somewhere 

dance and dance badly 

lay on the grass 

look at the stars 

count them
