One of the biggest things that has happened in my life was when I found out that my mom had to get a pacemaker. This is because she had a third degree heart block, which had the bottom of her heart stop communicating with the top. She was legally dead, so they had to bring her back with shocker paddles. ...

Most of us have had that moment:the moment where you’re laying on your back in bed, holding a phone above you (scrolling through Instagram, playing a game, taking a selfie) and *whomp* -- it lands right on your face.
