Life is like the early video games, it just keeps getting harder and harder until you die.
Another little anecdote for life. "Life is like a tree..." "Life is like a cake..." "Life is like Jimmy Saville..." Ok maybe not that last one, but life can be described as many things. I would just say life is whatever you decide to do with it, but yes untimely in the end you die, so why worry about little things you won't remember in a few years! And I swear to God I will kill the next person who says #yolo! You won't know when, but I will find you, and when I do, I will get the pliers!
