You never know.

Got some strange, sad news this morning. One of our circle of friends died suddenly Saturday night. She was 36. I met her in university; we were roommates for a while. I hadn't seen much of her in the past few years -- since she moved away -- and of course I feel guilty for that, too.

It's still surreal 12 hours later... it's hard to wrap my head around mortality in my peer group. I have been lucky in that this is the first of my circle to die and I know that mid-thirties isn't unheard-of for death by natural causes.... but it's still jarring.

Now all I've been thinking is where my not-yet-witnessed will has been filed and how much it will cost for a notary.
