These are roughly 28,835 Jelly Beans. I counted out 500 of them and used those to weigh the rest. In this pile, there is one Jelly Bean for each day that the average American will live. You might have more beans in your life, or maybe less, but on average this is the time we have. Here’s a single bean. It’s your very first day. A special day, but kind of a rough day on everyone involved. Add 364 more and you have the first year of your life. Now for a sense of scale, here are your first fifteen years. 5,475 days. Which brings us to the threshold of adulthood. And at that moment this is the time that we have left. And this is, on average, what we will do with all that time. We will be asleep for a total 8,477 days. If we’re lucky some of the time will be sleeping next to someone we love. We will be in the process of eating, drinking, or preparing food for 1,635 days. We will be at work, hopefully doing something satisfying for the equivalent of 3,202 of those days. 1,099 days will be spent commuting or travelling from one place to another, maybe a little bit more if you live in LA. On average we will watch television in one form or another for a total of 2,676 days. House hold activities, like chores and tending to our pets and shopping will take another 1,576 days. And we will care for the needs and well being of others, our friends and family, for 564 days. We will spend 671 days bathing, grooming, and doing all other bathroom related activities. And another 720 will go to community activities like religious and civic duties, charities, and taking classes. After we remove all those beans, this is what remains. This is the time that we have left. Time for laughing, swimming, making art, going on hikes, text messages, reading, checking facebook. Playing softball, maybe even teaching yourself how to play the guitar. So what are you going to do with this time? How much of it do you think you’ve already used up? If you only had half of it, what would you do differently? What about half of that? How much time have you already spent worrying instead of doing something that you love? What if you just had one more day? What are you going to do today?

    I appreciate his time counting out the five hundred jellybeans + creating this video with the other guy shown in video. Thank you both. I was so close to crying the first time seeing this video. It is so authentic, I love it.

    The end amount of days of free time we have, according to the end of the video, is 2,740 days. This is roughly seven and a half years. That's seven and a half years to do anything, and how much of that free time have you already used? And like he said what if you only had half of that? or even a fourth of that? or even just one day? Think about who you're gonna be when you're at the end of your road. You don't want to look back and remember all the time you wasted. Instead of worrying about the change, go. Go and do something, go and be productive, go tell that someone that you like them, go get that job, go do that whatever you're scared of doing. Because, in the end, we aren't guaranteed that time. We aren't guaranteed to live 80 years. For all you know, you could be on your last jelly bean, or your last several jelly beans. Go tell that person you love them. Go do that thing you have always wanted to do. You haven't got much time left to. Go do it now, do it tomorrow. Don't wait any longer. Here's a quote for everyone out there who's gonna read this "Don't wait for the perfect moment. It's never coming. Take the moment and make it perfect."

    Not gonna do much as nothing satisfies me anyway. Probably just gonna play video games and pet my cat. All this does is prove how much society drains your life into nothingness and hammers home how pointless I am as an individual. Granted that might just be the depression talking

    To those who feel depressed by this, perhaps that response is a coping mechanism that let's you keep your discomfort neatly tied to this video while you go on with your life without having to change a thing. The philosophical equivalent to "thoughts and prayers."

    PS. Existential crisis is a great motivator if you can figure out how to use it. Still painting with my fingers, myself.
