Daily Prompt: Don’t You Forget About Me

Imagine yourself at the end of your life. What sort of legacy will you leave? Describe the lasting effect you want to have on the world, after you’re gone.

I’ve never really thought about having a legacy. I’ve always had the view that I’ll die alone; I won’t have children; the buck stops with me. I always imagined that I’d end up writing some kind of memoirs and literally document everything that has happened in my life – the good, the bad, and the ugly.


But as well as that, I’d also leave my computer with every single one of my passwords so that somebody whom I trust could close accounts and see I to the kind of stuff that I did online. For example, only a handful of people actually know about this blog, so I would leave them this address, and allow them to spend time reading through post after post of me and my ranty, judgemental writings hehehe.

If anything was possible, I would love to leave this life knowing that I got something started, or I had helped to create something. Whether it’s taking advantage of solar energy and making it mandatory for homes with a certain sized roof to have a certain number of solar panels installed in order to help reduce power usage and therefore reduce carbon emissions. Or whether it’s something as simple as setting up a performing arts fund / scholarship for poor country kids; the bottom line is I would like to at least achieve something! the problem is, I just don’t actually know what that something is yet.

Hell, I still didn’t even know what I want to be when I grow up!!
