There's just plain too much stuff out there. I mean, it's going to take me a few decades to get sick of games. After that there's compsci research, I imagine I could get half a century out of that no problem. I still haven't started art, I could easily manage at least two dozen years with that, and then there's creative writing, and drama, and really, I can probably burn a century or two on the combinations of those.
And that's without travel. I need to spend a few months touring the US. Then I imagine another few months for Europe. At some point I'll want to visit Japan, only I really should learn Japanese first, and I'll almost certainly get distracted with Japanese history in there (five years). Same with Russia. I don't know much about Africa, so I could probably spend a few years on that. Maybe a few humanitarian projects at some point, I really should do that. That's a few decades spent on travel so far, and I haven't even gotten off the first planet yet! (Well, I *did* spend a few hundred years already, I imagine Mars won't be tough to get to at this point)
At this point I should have some nice long-term investment maturity - and be well past retirement age - so I'll do the rich lifestyle thing for a while. A house in the woods, another by the beach - perhaps built into a cliff face - and I'll be the eccentric investor. Relax for a decade or two, paint the waves breaking on the rocks, learn falconing. Maybe I'll drop my name, pick up a new one, and run a diner in the midwest or a bar on the east coast. It'll have curiously low prices (after all, I don't really need to make money off it), a very low BS tolerance, and - of course - be named Jake's Place, for no explained reason.
Eventually I'll get bored and go back to school. I still haven't done anything with engineering, but since I'm only halfway to the 30th century, there's still plenty of time to catch up.
All I need to do is figure out how to not die.
Anyone know how I can get in contact with Death? Maybe she'd find this interesting.
(so, if you could live forever, what would you do?)
