Tell Me What You Do All Day Now That You're Retired

Retired people, you live beautiful lives. You are in the rich, ripe August of your life (around 65-70). The work life is finally behind you. So now that you have more time, please tell me: what do you do with it?! Tell us all what we have to look forward to.

Maybe you spend time traveling the world with your spouse, friends, or family members. That sounds idyllic. Where have you been? What beautiful things have you seen?

Maybe, if you have them, you spend a lot of time with your grandchildren. Tell me the most rewarding part of that.

Perhaps you've turned what was once your hobby into a full-time thing. Do you spend all your time farming? Writing a novel? Sewing the coolest outfits known to man? I need to know!

Or maybe you spend time doing something so niche, so amazing, that it hasn't even occurred to my naïve, underdeveloped, 20-something brain. Enlighten me.

It can be funny, it can be tender, it can be earnest — but I want to hear about it. And who knows; your story may be shared in an upcoming BuzzFeed Community post!
