Hey, if life is a test, you're into the extra point questions now. It's all
gravy now!
Interesting you decided on your lifespan so young. I knew 2 of my
greatgrandmas & all my grandparents.  Most were hale & hearty into their 90s
so I decided early on I had a shot at a century & a quarter, given the
improved hygeine & nutrition. Not quite that optimistic these days, but
still looking at the century mark.
Like Kitty said, I think we have to plan for the future, but live in the
moment & it seems you do that well.

to bloom, but looking shaggy.
