I plan to spend the rest of my years getting really, really ridiculously good at something. Like, something artsy or creative, but I want to remain in relative obscurity. Then, when I reach my early 70's, I'll activate my top-secret invention: a youth-alizer. It will reduce my appearance to something like, say, 17... but my cellular age will remain the same. Moving forward, I will finish my years by doing what I've always been doing, but impressing and astonishing everyone, and growing in fame and fortune, for being so brilliant at it for such a "young" person. Wink wink. 

Then when I die, satisfied in my long life and body of work, I'll become even more famous; the tragedy of the prodigy who died too young. The value of my undiscovered works will explode, and four generations of my children's offspring will be guaranteed financial stability, all while I've accomplished playing one of the greatest and biggest pranks on humanity, ever. Win.
