The circle of life has nothing to do with one's maturation and eventual acceptance of death, fam ("fam = the friends you are closest with"). The circle of life is 1) teens coming up with super-cool ways to describe banal things, 2) parents sucking the life from those wonderful phrases by using/even understanding them, and 3) teens coming up with new jargon.
