Hey, everyone. Sometimes, when I’m way too busy to write, I come across something that really warms my heart and forces me to put everything else aside so I can share it.

This is one of those times.

100 year old women, Kathleen Connell (known as ‘kit’ by her those close to her), says that she keeps her mind sharp and active by playing her Nintendo DS daily. She’s been playing since she was 96, but uses it every day. Kit lives alone in a small Scottish village, even though both of her legs have been amputated – and she’s probably the biggest inspiration I’ve seen in a long, long time. I mean, come on now – 100 years old, and she’s filled to the brim with spirit and happiness from playing video games. “It’s absolutely super” she says, I don’t feel a day over 80. I can’t speak highly enough of it.”
