About Me

When you hear the word “YOLO” (you only live once) screamed out somewhere, you tend to roll your eyes and wait for something interesting (and sometimes stupid) to happen around you.  The idea behind YOLO is that you should give everything a go at least once as you don’t know when or if the opportunity will arise again. As much as I hate to say this, but I do agree with the principle of YOLO.

And when we see that opportunity, we need to grasp it with both hands and we just need to run with it.
