this weekend, i had a taste of what being mortal feels like. i was on the 110 in LA, on the right most lane getting ready to exit, when a woman who didn’t check her blind spot when merging crashed into my car. my car spun out of control from the right most lane all the way to the left most lane (so across 5 lanes) at least 3 times. at that moment, the only thought going on in my head was that i could die. despite being ridiculously lucky in dodging the cars in LA traffic and a truck driving head-on towards us, it was a terrifying experience that made me realize how short and unpredictable life can be. as cliche as it might sound, you never know which day might be your last so live life to the fullest.
