Yes, I'm a Gen Y-er but even I get lost in the maze of hashtag acronyms ruling the twittersphere.
Kids these days.
My new fave . . .
I looked at my friend Alice the other day when she used it in the context of talking about her upcoming holiday to Positano, Italy.
"Kate. Come with us! Yolo! "
What on earth could she mean?
"Um, Yolo? Year Of Living Opulently? I guess, I've got some spare spending money now that my US plans have changed, but TWO overseas trips in one year? That's a bit too opulent, I would've thought, Alice."
She laughed and congratulated my creativity, but went on to explain 'yolo' stands for 'you only live once'. Kind of the same thing, I guess!
I love the sentiment behind this, seize the day, carpe diem!
I try and live my life like I'm always on holidays - I stay up really late and try to squeeze as much as I can into each day. I play tourist in my own town and make lots of dates with friends to try new restaurants and bars. I'm a yes girl, count me in, I'm there.
What do you do to seize the day?
