Journey to the Race: Day 65

“When adults say, "Teenagers think they are invincible" with that sly, stupid smile on their faces, they don't know how right they are. We need never be hopeless, because we can never be irreparably broken. We think that we are invincible because we are. We cannot be born, and we cannot die. Like all energy, we can only change shapes and sizes and manifestations. They forget that when they get old. They get scared of losing and failing. But that part of us greater than the sum of our parts cannot begin and cannot end, and so it cannot fail.”
― John Green, Looking for Alaska

Today's been...interesting. Started well, with me driving all over town job hunting. I've driven more today than in the last year. I applied to about 10 places, only about 2 of which actually seem at all promising but we'll see what happens. After I got home was when the day took a turn for the worse. I came home to find a post on facebook letting us know that my moms best friend, who has been fighting breast cancer which spread to her spine, had sepsis and was no longer responding to treatment. She's now in a drug induced deep sleep so she's not in pain and will very likely pass in the next few days. It was very hard news to get, and even worse to have to pass on to my mom as she's been relying on me for updates. Needless to say I was in no mood to workout and my left arm has been aching so today was deemed a day off. I'm exhausted so I'm going to read then go to bed. Night all.
