So the idea is pretty great; “you only live once” (so live it up.) Though people seriously take it the wrong way. Like “I’m going to smoke weed cause YOLO” or “I am dating him because he likes me and why not, YOLO!” or “I’m going to give up on education and do what I want cause YOLO!”
In theory, YOLO could be a great self motivation tool. For example: if you tell yourself that you should learn a new language for self betterment since you only live once and should try to make the best of it so that you can eventually live your dream of living where you want or travelling where you want and getting the full experience. Another example: pushing yourself in school to achieve your goals and realize your true aspirations because you only live once, why not make the best of your time and do what makes you happy?
(just used random examples from my life, though there are MANY others that can be used based upon personal adaptation)
So what do you do to fulfill your life and make it the best you possibly can?
I’d love to know :)
Which are really good telescopes, in the perfect location (middle of the ocean, no interfering lights, one of the tallest mountains in the world) But I have no access to them :( It makes me really sad that I have such a strong interest in astronomy, and such prominent resources within my reach, though I don’t have any access to them. Sometimes I really want to be an astronomer, though others I think engineering is the right path for me. I have about a year until college, well about half a year until I have to start working on applications so I don’t have much time to figure it out. My strong interest in science makes it really hard for me to decide what I want to do with my life. But I’m sure that with time it will come to me.
