Checklist Day
A checklist is a type of informational job aid used to reduce failure by compensating for potential limits of human memory and attention. It helps to ensure consistency and completeness in carrying out a task. A basic example is the "to do list." A more advanced checklist would be a schedule, which lays out tasks to be done according to time of day or other factors. (source)
Any kind of checklist you would ever want

Create a Great Funeral Day
A few years ago a friend advised me to create my memorial service (funeral) playlist, songs, and scriptures or readings.  I thought it made sense so I've been mentally thinking it through for years but haven't committed it to "ink." Today I'm going to commit some of it to "paper" so at least there will be something should I fly away unexpectedly.
(Version linked to song title) Amazing Grace, How Great Thou Art, I am found in You, Doxology, I AM
There's more, clearly music says for me what I cannot seem to find the words to say myself.  I'm going to continue working on it!

Mischief Night
What is mischief?
You could watch this movie instead of engaging in mischief that could cause trouble.
In high school the kind of mischief we caused was toilet papering someone's house. I can't remember that I did anything else!
