So after yesterday’s post, I decided to do up my accounts and password list. In the process I also did up a list of ppl to be emailed, and also a list of ppl to be called in the unfortunate event of my demise.
Contrary to what you may think, the process itself was actually quite comforting and calming. I guess because death can be such a random thing, it feels good to be able to put a sense of order into it. It all feels very bizarre and kinda hard to describe in words.
As I was looking through the numbers on my phone and the e-mail addresses that I have, I feel really blessed to have so many ppl that I want to be notified if I die.
In fact I got so many on my list that I decided to trim it and stick to one or two central ppl in each of my different social groups, and they can help spread the “news”.
I’d still have to draft up a post-mortem blog post. It would read a bit like this:
“if you are reading this, then it means that I’m ….”
I would give the list of passwords and accounts to my parents sometime in the near future. Chinese ppl usually do not like talking about death – very pantang (taboo). However, my parents have already given me their life insurance policy numbers so I guess they would appreciate my thoughts on this. 🙂
And on a related note, YC wrote about what kind of funeral she would want.
