Apoca-what? This is just what I call my bucket list. I got the name from a short-lived series called No Tomorrow. No, I don’t believe in a pending apocalypse, but maybe we should all live like we do:

What if I told you the world was ending? What if I said that in six months time, an asteroid was going to hit the Earth? What would you change about your life? I know it sounds like a bizarre hypothetical, but what if it were true? What if you gave yourself permission to seize the day? What might your life look like? I would implore you to embrace the “what if.” What are your wildest dreams? What are your deepest fears that you wish you could overcome? Be honest with yourself about what it is that you would change about your life.

What would you do if you only had six months left?

–Xavier Holliday (No Tomorrow)
