About

First semester at mortuary school! (September ’12)

even more obligatory selfies

After a year at mortuary school, everything blurs together into this face. (July, ’13)

Marissa is a mortuary science student at Lincoln College of New England. A girl of many passions (though most of them are robots, comics, and nebulas), she spent most of her formative years trying to persuade her peers that Robert Frost’s poem “Stopping by Woods on Snowy Evening” was about death, attempting to learn dead languages, and writing bad poetry. After struggling through four years of a partially completed human services degree, she realized that she was deeply unhappy with her lot in life and summarily made plans to run away and join a jazz band in New Orleans. Realizing how insane that was, she instead determined that perhaps her career choice was to blame and enrolled in mortuary school. Once there, she realized that not everybody understood what they were getting themselves into. She quickly decided to start this blog, so as to inform said students about their impending doom potential careers. Marissa is the author of “Flowers In Your Soul”, available via Lulu.com. Should you meet her in person and happen to have a copy with you, she’ll happily sign it for free. Currently, Marissa is a member of Phi Theta Kappa International Honors Society and is a resident advisor at LCNE.

Projected graduation date: May 2014.

  1. You know I stumbled upon your blog here after turning to Google in search of potential books for mortuary science students to read. I’m enrolled at LCNE too ;D Finally first taking my first MOS course next week — Psychosociological & Ethical Issues of Death.

    • That’s great! You’re going to love Death & Dying. Are you taking it with Doctor Warren or the other professor? He’s new so I don’t know his name. If you need any help at all, don’t hesitate to drop me an email and I can do my best to give you a boost. 🙂

  2. It’s with Dr. Warren (finally a class with him!). Thanks for the gesture, I just may! 😀
