thinking about “how” it would effect you is always different when actually experienced
I would be overdosed on anxiety whenever that date approaches.
That’s tricky if we don’t know the year; otherwise we would plan exactly to fit in everything we wanted to do. I think we would be busy getting our life in order each year as the date approached, then relax and not bother for a few months and never end up fulfilling some ambitions.
I would be fearless and really LIVE life! No holds barred.

1) Quit my job.
2) Go back to eating (lots of) pepperoni pizzas and (lots of) ice cream sundaes.
3) Take a closer look at Netflix and catch up on some stuff in my list.
4) Tell everyone I see, every day, wherever I’m at, that I love them.
One could plan a lavish funeral on the same date every year and (for a few funerals at least) enjoy listening to people who feel obliged to say nice things about you. And actually dropping dead at your own funeral is a very impressive and considerate action – it would add a great deal of excitement and anticipation to the occasion for the guests. One might also gain an interesting perspective on one’s friends and family in noticing how many of them turn up genuinely hoping that ‘this might be the year’.
Although there might be a few nerves approaching the date, imagine the feeling of bliss once the date has passed! One is then immortal (though only for the next 364 days).
Lots of prayers and nervousness before that specific date plus making sure my cats are covered, just in case.
