Curriculum Morti #1
Thursday, May 7, 1998
- When a boss wants to know sometime about a prospective employee they ask to see a curriculum vitae. A curriculum vitae details the stuff what you been doing in your life that you believe describes your current state of readiness for the job at hand. One includes reference to things such as education, previous employment, clubs and associations, honors, significant skill, hobbies, and training. Basically one includes anything that seems to have bearing on the question "Who is the person?"
Well, the curriculum morti is no different -- except in this case the stuff what you is being asked to relate is not details of your vitae (life), but rather details of your morti (after-life).
We'll talk later about how to organize this.

- In Curriculum Morti #1 the notion of a Curriculum Morti was introduced. Some broad hints were given on how to start. Let's get a little more specific.
Start by making a list of education, employment, clubs, associations, honors, significant skills, hobbies, interests, talents, training, etc. For the moment don't be overly concerned on whether ot not these items fit the bill as Curriculum Morti vs. Curriculum Vitae. Just make a note of the item. Next we will address the issue of categorization.

- Before we can begin the process of categorizing items into either Curriculum Morti or Curriculum Vitae we should have some idea of which is what is where. To this end obtain a copy of the American Book of the Dead and give it a read.

- From the cards and letters coming in, it is obvious that this little subject has piqued the attention of several folks. To help you get started on answering the question "what the heck is the difference between a vitae-moment and a morti-moment" I have posted the exercises from the "Just Because Club." You can find the first exercise at Just Because Activity #1.

- Remember what the movies about young high school students worrying about getting into college? One of the plot elements inevitably thrown into the mix was: building up a history of extra curricular activities. The presumption is that a college admittance officer would use his record to assess the prospective students character.
