Any time one of my friends wants to go out and do something fun, but I am just not in the mood and I would rather stay home, I just think to myself, yolo. And then I go because I only have one life and I don’t want to spend it staying at home and not taking advantage of fun activities.
Yolo is also how I convince all of my friends to go out and do fun stuff. Any time my peers don’t want to go out after a football game or go to a school event I hit them with a yolo. I express to them how we only live once and, as seniors, we will never be in high school again. We won’t ever get to go to a high school football game and stand in the student section for the rest of our lives. That is why it is so important that we take advantage of every little thing that presents itself because we may never get the chance to do it again.
I encourage anyone who is reading this to always remember yolo. Any time you are debating if you should do something, remember that you only live once. Maybe that means you shouldn’t do something because it could mess up your life or be dangerous, or maybe that is what tells you that you can’t waste this opportunity. Whatever the decision is, I promise you that thinking about the fact that you only live once will help you decide what to do. #YOLO
