“I want to be an immortal jellyfish”

If I could be any animal in the world, I would be an immortal jellyfish, a fascinating creature that never dies naturally.Its scientific name is Turritopsis dohrnii. They are barely visible. The Turritopsis dohrnii is bell-shaped and it is at maximum 4.5mm (0.18 inch) tall and wide. They are tiny creatures. Younger Turritopsises have only 8 tentacles while adult ones can have up to 90 tentacles. It only dies when killed.

I want to be an immortal jellyfish because dying scares me so being mortal would solve all my problems/worries. I could also be part of a new social group with turtles and dolphins and the bully would be the shark… Also I have always wondered what it would be like moving around under water like a jellyfish. And being able to breathe/live underwater would be a new/probably amazing feeling.

I also think that maybe my soul was meant to live in a body that can breathe underwater. I love the water. I could spend a day there and not even be cold.I feel like my body belongs there with water moving freely and I think that is the sole purpose of a jellyfish.

So I connected the dots a realized I want to be an immortal jellyfish (Turritopsis dohrnii).
