carpe diem. carpe everything.

Someday, I'd like to have "Carpe Diem" tattooed on my wrist. Someday.

While indulging myself in some restaurant's eat-all-you-can promo while studying for an exam, I came upon this sudden realization. I was looking outside, at the people (Yes, I was supposed to be studying). And then, this intense sense of well-being just hit me. With exactly the right feel-good song playing in my iPhone, with all the people having fun outside, it hit me. 

Yes, this is it. 

We only have one life, one go, one chance at living. Do you get it? We don't get another try! (Well, unless you're Hindu and you believe that you'll live again as a locust or something.) This is it. The one shot we get. We won't be able to start again when we die. This is our chance to do the things we want. To make mistakes. To fall in love. To go to jail. To scream "penis" at the top of our lungs while in front of the church. 

You only have one life. Don't be afraid to live it. You'll never know when it will end.

Make it count.
