I know exactly how you feel. Death is always on my mind -- time
is always on my mind. There's never enough, and it only gets shorter. Of
course if Vampires DO happen to exist, there are no absolute
facts, because no one has interviewed an actual Vampire. We don't know if
they're immortal, or if they burn in the sun, etc. We just... succumb to the myths.
Anyway, DarkPassenger, I too am afraid of the nothing I'll become once I'm burried in the ground. No thinking, no seeing. Just oblivion. And if I
could believe only one thing with unbreakable faith, I wish it were that there would be more after this life. But I just don't hold that belief
(permanently, at least - I believe in many a thing). I am also like you in the way that you want to live your life and acquire what it has to offer. I
want to learn to play the violin and the piano, learn to speak different languages, and see weather at it's most extreme in every climate. I want to
have the TIME to save money for University, and the time to be further educated without feeling like it's a waste of my short years. I want to meet a
man who I have a deeper than love connection with, a man with which I can stand beside and others can feel the love radiating between us, because
it's so true. I want a family to spoil, and friends who know the real me. I want to know who the real me is. I want time.
So yes, I would love to be a vampire if immortality/a prolonged life came with it. I suppose losing those you love over and over again would be
difficult, but then again I don't attatch easily and hopefully if there were a way to change me into a vampire, there would be a way to change those
of my choosing into an immortal as well. Another downside to immortality would be living through the end of the world.
But I'd be willing to sacrifice those things for the chance to live for a superbly long time.... If in fact, Vampires ARE immortal.
