This is completely random and perhaps a bit awkward for some, but I want to make it this known publicly. If I am to die suddenly or am in a serious accident, this is what I want to happen.
First, call everyone on my “Favorites” list on my iPhone. My phone is passcode locked. My sister has an email with a list of all my passwords lost somewhere in her Gmail. You can find passwords for my social networks and notable accounts (e.g. banks) in my 1Password app on my phone. Please link the story of my death or obituary to my Facebook and Twitter followers. I’d prefer if you made it public how I died. I think this helps with the coping process. Don’t delete my pages.
Please keep this blog live. I’d love for people to have a “living” document of my thoughts and feelings. It’s a self-hosted WordPress blog. Daisy has the password logins. Also, make sure to renew TalkAnything.FM. It’s where I host my podcast and I think it’s important for people to be able to hear my voice if I’m gone. I buy all my domains via Name.com.
Do not let me live in a vegetative state. I do not want to live on a ventilator and suck up resources. If there is nothing that can be done, just pull the plug. I do not want to live with no quality of life and be a burden on everyone else around me.
Please donate all my organs. Save as many lives as you can with whatever organs I can donate. Eyes, skin, heart, lungs, kidneys, liver, whatever. Take it all. Cremate the rest of me and dump me on a baseball field (preferably Frame Park in Waukesha, WI), at the shortstop position. (I would do this at night, so no one knows the next day that they’re playing on a dead dude’s ashes.)
I will have a will made for all my assets. But I want my sister Daisy and her daughter Aya to have whatever I have.
I’m really hoping I don’t die in the next 54 years. But if something shitty happens, I want to be sure that someone knows what my dying wishes are.
I’m not dead yet, but I love you all. Thanks for being a part of my life.
