WRITING ABOUT YOLO CAUSE YOLO
I YOLO. You YOLO. He, she, we YOLO. You only live once, they say. The phrase YOLO seems to have originated from modern musician, Drake. His song "The Motto" is all about "YOLO." This blog article will be dedicated to YOLO.
People say YOLO before or after they do something dumb. But hey, guess what! Riddle me this: if you realize that you only live once, and it is a concern of yours, WHY WOULD YOU DO ANYTHING TO JEOPARDIZE THAT ONLY LIFE YOU HAVE? It just doesn't make sense! I understand that you want to live it up and have a great time in life, but YOLO just doesn't work. Try the Latin phrase "carpe diem," meaning "seize the day." If nothine else, you sound intelligent saying it...until that becomes the new YOLO, that is.
Many people say it when they do dumb stuff. "I just drank four energy drinks. YOLO!" Or "I got in a fight with that guy! YOLO!" It's absolutley ridiculous. However, I won't lie. Sometimes, I do let slip a YOLO here and there. For example, at a social event at which people were asked to hold all clapping to the end, I clapped for my friends. I then proceded to say "BROKE THE NO-CLAP RULE! YOLO!" The difference is that I'm joking. My best friend even told me she was going to make a YOLO Jar. Every time I say it, I have to put in a quarter. So, I hope to be dropping the term from my vocabulary soon.
Now I conclude my speech on YOLOs and YOLOing. I'm guilty of it too. I'll drop it if you will. Go make a YOLO Jar. The world will be a better place.

I agree completely with you about "YOLO". Its really over used so that people have an excuse when they have nothing else.

Wonderful points you've made here, I enjoy them! And of course you're absolutely right, the whole idea of this fad is nothing but nonsense made up by a dribbling turbospaz. Some refuse to realize how silly they sound.

I feel so special to have understood almost all of those inside jokes. Like the spongebob reference to i wumbo you wumbe he she we wumbo. And yes, clapping at public events that you shouldn't is at least not as stupid and recless for a reason to say yolo
