Is it weird to write a will if you're a teenager?

Is it weird to write a will if you're a teenager? Topic: How to write a research paper medical
July 17, 2019 / By Agnes
Question: I mean, is that really morbid and stuff, or is it okay for me to do it? No, Luke, I'm not suicidal and I don't want attention. It's just an idea. If I were to die, say, in a car accident, I'd want people to know what I wanted.

Disclaimer: The laws in my home country are likely different from yours, but there are probably a cuople of reasons you may want to make out a will at any age. I've had one since I was 16, as I had a trust fund that I became sole beneficiary of and wanted it to go to specific people and places if something were to happen to me. So, if you have cash or property assets, even if they are in trust for your benefit, you may direct your administrator (the person who will handle your estate) how to distribute your property, including cash/accounts, etc. rather than revert automatically to the nearest living relative/spouse or, if you die without a will, the state, who will then settle your estate. (Again, trust laws vary by country, so don't take that for granted if you have one/will have one at some point). You also have one thing we all have that's very valuable - or costly, depending on what you want done with it after your passing. Your body. When you die, something will have to be done with it. I am doing full body donation. I will essentially be stripped of any parts that are still usable, my bones may be used for bone screws, my skin to help grow skin grafts - or I could be used for research. Any pieces of parts left over are to be cremated and scattered in my home country. You may direct your estate administrator how to dispose of your earthly remains in your will. If you wish to be buried, when you are financially stable on your own, buy a plot and prepay your burial expenses. So no, a will is not a bad idea for you if you are at the age you feel OK with making those sorts of decisions and it would help you feel better about the one thing we all have to wrestle with at some point - our own mortality. Speaking of which, a living will - what they're to do if you are ever so severely injured you cannot make medical decisions for yourself, among other things - is never a bad idea. Talk to your family about your wishes when you die, preferably without scaring them, please. You may not need a legal document as you may not have much to worry about right now, but the living will is a big one (google Terry Schiavo for what happens if you don't have one) and letting your family know how you prefer your remains be dealt with is also a very good idea, even if you don't put it on paper.

Timmy Originally Answered: Is it weird that I want to write young adult novels?
Write what inspires you! Young adult as a genre merely refers to the age of the main character (ie. teen, early twenties). Themes found in young adult novels are universals and cross boundaries. These days (ie. 21st century) people in the book business (bookstores/libraries) are beginning to place less of a distinction on the adult/young adult/childrens classification and pay more attention to the content of the story. If Game of Thrones had been written exclusively from Sansa or Danaerys' point of view, it would probably be considered a young adult series. Good luck with whatever books you choose to write. May your characters be memorable and your plots unforgettable. Hope this helps.

A person can write a Will if they have assets (possessions) which they want to bequeath (give) to their loved ones by listing who you wish to get what. I am not quite sure a minor can draft a Will because a Will is a legal document and legal documents are drawn by adults. Also, in order for a Will to be valid, it has to be notarized and again, I am not sure a minor is able to do such a thing. No, it is not weird to want to bequeath your belongings to anyone of your choice. However, it is odd for a teenager to draw a Will because Wills are usually drawn to disburse assets and most teens have not accumulated belongings or an estate to disburse.

Not really actually. I'm 14 and I have always wanted to write a will. I don't want attention and I am not suicidal. I just want to do it just in case. I want certain people (like my dad), to have certain things (like my pocket knife collection and my souvenirs to our trip to Arizona). It just gives me comfort that if anything bad ever happened the everyone would have there own stuff to remember me by.

I think its fine, I was listing one in my head the other day. Every person wakes up every single morning not knowing if they are going to live or die that day, whats wrong with writing a will?? You'll just be more prepared than others.

Jerry Originally Answered: Would it be weird to write a note and leave it in your crushes locker?
Put there a card with a shape of a heart, and things that you love to tell her if you are both alone with each other, but DO NOT TELL YOUR REAL NAME just yet, put it, "an admirer", and let her guess for a while who is this mysterious guy that put a love notes in her locker, she will not fall asleep or will keep thinking who is this guy that put the letter on her locker. Do not blow your cover, every time you meet her, act like you are not interested in her or kind of avoid her if you like by saying "ok sorry I have to go, but see you next time". She will die to know who this guy is. Put her mad about it. She will keep asking people or friends of her who could be this guy, and would investigate for herself who is the guy putting letter in her locker, while you keep laughing while looking at her behind a wall or a desk. She will be over excited, mad with fury, getting irritated to know this guy. Do you like to do this? Well it is up to you. And since you did not tell her who you are, you can now tell everything you feel about her. But do not over do it. There might have some stories in your letter that could blow your cover like" when I saw you talking with a guy I feel jealous, and when we meet in an elevator you smile at me" she will recall who is the guy that she smiled with. That is the end of your disguise. Do not synchronize event to your writing a letter. Every girl wants an adventure, and you surely put her in this type of situation. ---sorry I thought you are a guy, but a girl who have a crush on a guy. Well you could do it, but your handwriting could blow your cover, because any guy can spot a similar handwriting if she is included in the class, or ask girls who could have a handwriting like this. Much better if you could ask someone not from your school who can write those letters for you.
