Everyone in my family used to say that my great uncle would live forever. He was probably the most health conscious person you would ever meet. Once my mom offered him a donut and he said, "I might as well eat poison." Everyday he'd go swimming at a local community college's indoor pool and grew his own produce. About two months ago, he was diagnosed with cancer and was given two weeks to live. Last night he died. He was ninety. He didn't live forever.
This all reminds me that we, as humans, aren't invincible. We're all dying slowly from the moment we come into existence. At any given moment it could all come to an end. We aren't going to be here forever; it's all just temporary.

I am head over heels in love with the Alexander Wang Kirsten Satchel, but no so much the heavy price tag attached to it. There's no way I would ever spend nearly a thousand dollars on a bag, even if it's as close to perfection as this. So, I found an alternative.
I bought this bag by She & Josh from karmaloop for about $55. It's certainly no Wang and looks rather inferior next to it, but I quite like it and I'm happy that I got such a good deal on it!

Okay, so I've become completely obsessed with 8tracks. I'm glad that I discovered a place where I can share playlists I make; I've done so many of them and I just love doing it. Here's one full of songs that keep me pumped up while working out!
