I'm in total shock right now. I just found out that my next-door neighbour died on Sunday night. He was only 17, a month older than me and we used to be best of friends all through infant and primary school. He died from a heart attack whilst playing Six-a-side football in the local leisure centre. I really can't believe it. We had each gone our seperate ways through High School and College but we always spoke whenever we saw each other despite the old friendship we had not being there.
I hadn't seen him, nor spoke to him for months but I am still in shock at the moment in time. I guess it really goes to show that if your times up and the bloke upstairs calls for you then thats it. Strange that I was just saying to a colleague this afternoon that your only here once, and you should make the most of it and do the things you want to do.
So, I've decided. I'm not going to miss up on any opportunity and I'm going to take them all. If I see something I like, I'm going to buy it. We only live once, after all.
The strange thing is that I don't feel any loss really, it just feels kind of numb that someone the same age as me, and someone who I really used to be best of friends with is gone.
Anyway, I felt I had to just say something to all of you at CW.
Take care people,
