1(ish) Day to Slay-a-Thon: My One Favorite Buffy Quote

"The hardest thing in this world is to live in it."

There are so many ways to interpret that line, so many deeper meanings it can have, but I think each person who watches "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" takes something different from it. 

I'd love to go into what it means to me, but quite frankly it's a little more personal than I'm willing to get on this blog. Let's just say that whenever I'm down, I think of it and realize that once I've made the decision to wake up in the morning and live my life, everything else is easy.

I loved the line so much that I got it tattooed on my right arm (my first tattoo, helping me overcome my paralyzing fear of needles). It's just a single line in what I think is the best scene in "Buffy" history. So watch and enjoy.

(oh, and as for why this post -- which is actually going up just about 10 hours before Slay-a-Thon -- is SO late, check back later today for a fun recap of how a 2-hour flight turned into a 13-hour travel day)
