We had this homework for our PhilArts 126 class under Sir Chong to write our own obituaries. I was too lazy to do it at first because I hated writing. But as I started typing, I remembered Sir Chong saying that we think about how we want to be remembered. So, I imagined how I want my life to be. Then I wrote it.
My obituary is too long to paste here, it’s what happens when I get carried away. I will be including excerpts though. But if you want to read the whole thing, you can check it out on my Facebook.
After I was done writing, I found it funny that a life story of a 95-year-old woman in year 2086 can be very tech savvy. At least mine is going to be.
After years of hard work, Marj, together with her husband Ian, who was a long-time boyfriend turned partner in life, just as everyone expected, was able to turn their humble online graphic design studio, Witty Minds, to a full pledge advertising agency which earned them quarter of the shares in Multiply.com, from which they started, because of the unimaginable publicity their company was able to give them.
Yes, I plan to make our humble online business to something big in the near future.
Other than the successful ad agency, they also own a clothing company–shirts to be exact, called Monster Machine. Each design was meticulously vectored by the two during their younger years and now being continued on by their three lovely children.
Yes, too, I would want to be vector savvy until my hands go shaking.
And finally, my ultimate dream. Hope this comes true. Well, I’ll work on it if I really want to.
We will also remember her through her works of art: the print ads and ads you see on the television (or Youtube) so to speak.
Nowadays, we still find oldies who are tech savvy to be so cool and out-of-the-box like Lola Techie. But by 2086, all these will not be so new anymore and the oldies, who will be us for the next 50 years, will probably be called senior netizens instead.
