Mateo and Rufus are total strangers, but, for different reasons, they're both looking to make a new friend on their End Day. The good news: There's an app for that. It's called the Last Friend, and through it, Rufus and Mateo are about to meet up for one last great adventure and to live a lifetime in a single day.

After reading Adam Silvera's newest book, I questioned a lot of things in my life. I thought it'd only be fitting to write a post about it and share my thoughts with you guys. Hopefully, I get some feedback and am not the only one feeling this way.

If you didn't know, TBDATE takes place in a world like ours with one difference- people know when they are going to die. This changes the game. A system called Death-Cast is responsible for these death notifications. On the day you're going to die, you will receive a call from them and the way you spend your last hours are up to you.

It's no doubt that TBDATE made me think about a lot of things, death especially. Death, although inevitable, is something I don't like to dwell on. There comes a point in our lives where we ask ourselves: Is it better to know when we are going to die or stay oblivious? I'd rather not know when I'm going to die because then I'll be spending the rest of my days or hours in fear of that moment. It's better to live life to the fullest and not take advantage of anything, so that when the time comes you have no regrets. But let's say for some strange reason, Death-Cast existed. If I was called, how would I spend my End Day?

1. Goodbyes

Goodbyes are the hardest. If it were my End Day, I would likely want to get the goodbyes out of the way because I'm not the type of person who does the hardest things last. I wanna rip that bandage off as soon as possible, so the wound has time to bleed. Goodbyes are pretty self-explanatory. I think I'd rather do it like it was done in the book, with everyone saying a personal eulogy in front of me. 

2. Adopt a pug and give it a home

If you guys don't follow me on Instagram and Twitter, you wouldn't know that I have an obsession with pugs. It's always been a dream of mine to adopt a pug and to satisfy years of pining for one, I would adopt a pug from a shelter. My parents don't want one at the moment because they don't like the breed, but I think they'd make an exception for my last day. This wouldn't just make me extremely happy to spend part of my last day cuddling a FREAKIN' dog, but I'd be giving a homeless dog a new home and family. 

3. Record my End Day on Youtube

I have a Youtube channel,  so I think it'd be a good idea to record my End Day and have someone upload it to Youtube if I don't get the chance to. I use my Youtube channel as documentation, whether it's documenting my vacation to Florida or the books I've read in a month. It's all there for memories-sake and for people to stay updated in my life. I think posting my End Day video will serve a purpose to family and friends who could rewatch it from time to time. It would also allow me to get one last video up for my subscribers. You rock! 

4. Send my love to my loverrrr (channeling Adele) 

I mean it's my End Day; might as well go with a bang! Those feelings I've been harboring for that special someone? I think I'd have major regrets if I never told my crush how I felt about him. The best part of it is that you can't get rejected because I probably wouldn't be alive to find out. 

5. Cry (a lot)

Of course, I'm going to end up crying.... a lot. If I cry just from watching Wicked on Broadway, you can be sure I'll generate a bucket of tears on my End Day. There's something sad in knowing when your time is up. I would cry for all the people I am leaving behind, the things I have yet to experience, and the people I have yet to meet. 

Overall, my End Day would be pretty lowkey. I'm not gonna lie and say that I would spend the day crossing off everything on my bucket list- skydiving, seeing the Great Barrier Reef, freediving and etc. Truth is, I can say that I have no regrets in life. There's nothing I'd rather be doing than spending time with friends and family, crying, cuddling a pug, and making it right with the most important people in my life. 

How would you spend your End Day?

  1. This is a very creative review! I still need to read this book. I have no idea how I’d spend my last day. Probably panicking a lot.
