Damn two birds of a feather

I found out today that a friend from college passed away from cancer. He was one of those people everyone knew and most wanted to hang out with. He was in my study abroad program, and I remember many nights spent in the local bars with him as well as dozens of other American friends, dancing the nights away.

He was truly a shining star, and he will be missed by us all. Having him in my mind reminds me to have a love for life and to make what you do with your one and only really count. His life was so full of love, drive, and passion, and I can only hope to follow his lead.

It’s a reality check for me, to look around myself and see who I am, who I want to be, and what I value.

And I wanted to take a minute to tell you I value you, reader, for sticking with me. You keep me writing, which is what I really love. So thank you Matt, and thank you readers. You are both in my prayers.

About sorellaaglio

I am 26. I love nature. I love trying new things, and I love children. I love cooking, baking, and sometimes even cleaning. I am an organized mess, and yet manage to eat three meals a day and get eight hours of sleep a night. If you stop by, I'll feed you and make you a mixed CD. Oh, and I am a fan of you.
