Life has taken over

Today has been a bizarre day.
I woke up nervous like hell because today I would know most of the results of my applications to MA programs in Madrid.
I turned on the computer hopeful that the people in charge to upload the lists would have been as excited as me and would have done it early. Instead, I found out a friend from my secondary school in Swaziland had died unexpectedly. When a young person dies, besides the world turning upside down, everyone says how joyful and fantastic the kid was. But in this case, he really, really was such a beautiful soul, so much fun, so terribly clever, so fantastic. He just was a fabulous character.
I can understand the sentece telling me that he is gone, but I can't fully grasp what that implies.
Mr M. and I tried to continue packing the flat (we are moving on Saturday early morning, so there was no option to take the day off), completely in shock.
In the afternoon, the lists were up and it so happens I've been accepted in the MA I wanted the most, despite the difficulty to get in.
I'm so sad I'll have to remember today forever.
I guess sometimes life simply takes over.
Sometimes you have a taste of two sides at once.
Sometimes you realize that you can really hurt for somebody you did not know that well.

What did you think?
