Have you ever written an obituary?
Until today I never thought I would have to.
No someone did not die.
It is our English assignment for the next two days. It wasn’t until about halfway through writing it that I realized one day someone would be writing mine.
But I don’t want an old traditional “she was a good person… She was this and that” I don’t want people to remember me that way. I want honesty. I want people to remember the way I do things or the way I think or how I was afraid to cut my hair or even how short I am. I think that an obituary should state how they will actually be remembered not some made up stuff about being a great person.
I know I said I wouldn’t write anything new but I guess I changed my mind.
