My Obituary

I had to write my own obituary for one of my classes and I thought I would share it with all of you.

Esli, a Nurse for the United States Air force who died at the age of 30.  She was accidentally shot to death while practicing her shooting skills at a shooting range.  She died at the scene and felt no pain.  Esli was an average looking person and a very charismatic individual.  Almost all those around her loved her.  She enjoyed playing music with her flute and occasionally the piano.  Writing was one of her passions and she wrote many short stories that many of you will never read.  Like many, she did have a nasty temper that was sometimes uncontrollable; that will not be missed.  It is amazing to say that she lived up to accomplish her goals at such a young age.  She traveled the world, and therefore managed to get one of her photos printed in the National Geographic magazine (March 2020 Edition).  She graduated from Arizona State University in 2013 with a Bachelors in Health Science.  After working a few months with Anthony Robbins, she decided to attend Graduate school at Utah State University, however, she was unable to finish due to the latest event in her life.  Esli never found love; therefore, never married and she is only survived by her 6 younger siblings.

The way I see it

Class of 2013

In exactly 10 days(Not counting finals week) my four year journey will be over.  I will be graduating from Arizona State and stepping into the “real world.”

Everyone congratulates me when they hear I will be done this year, and they are just so exited…in fact, everyone is- Except me…well no, I am exited-but not really….Only those graduating with me understand this complicated thought in my head.

Truth is I am terrified.  I am scared because for as long as I can remember I always knew what I would be doing through out the year- School & Work.  As I approach this future everyone keeps mentioning (& I realize ) that I have to go out and find a real job.  I refuse to work at Coldstone, Burger King, cashier at Walmart or any other fast food restaurant with a Bachelors degree.  I want something relevant to my field.  Many people tell me that they got a degree in lets say Nutrition, and now they are out there selling houses (terrible example, but it is the best I can come up with).

I am afraid of never living up to my dreams- Even my subconscious is freaked out.   I was sleeping the other night and I woke up, looked up see my grandma staring back at me. I wasn’t scared or anything…. until I found out that my grandma was my reflection.  I don’t want to grow old in my parents house….that means that I never moved out.
