Live like there is no tomorrow

"If time came to an end today and we left too many things to say
If we could turn it back what would we want to change? But now's the time to take a chance
Come on, we got to make a stand
What have we gotta lose? The choice is in our hands
And we can find a way to do anything if we try to

Live like there's no tomorrow, (cause all we have is here right now) Love like it's all that we know. (The only truth that we ever found) Believe in what we feel inside, Believe and it will never die.Don't ever let this life pass us by. Live like there's no tomorrow.

Take a leap of faith and hope you fly, feel what it's like to be alive
Give it all that we've got and lay it all on the line 

Nothing is impossible. Nothing is impossible!"
-Selena Gomez & The Scene

"Live life like there's no tomorrow" is a great quote because it completely states the truth of life--it doesn't guarantee a tomorrow. Life is unpredictable, it can be taken from one in the blink of an eye or the stop of a heart beat. I believe that living life like there is no tomorrow is a great style of life, but it is very risky and can lead to many consequences. The situation that comes to mind automatically is when you go out to party and you hook up with someone. If you live life like there is no tomorrow then you hook up, but this could lead to many sexually transmitted diseases which could end your life prematurely which isn't worth one night of fun. But if you don't take risks and have fun, you end up being a party pooper and a downer which is no fun. Being a stick in the mud is not the type of person you want to be. I think that with measure and some sort of reason and depending on the situation, you could live like there is no tomorrow and be safe.

Failing with the Truth :(

So on November 12, 2012, I tried to accomplish #08. Be COMPLETELY honest for a whole week.. well it didn't turn out so well. I did get questions and I answered them truthfully, but I didn't feel accomplished. I went to the Model United Nations conference in UCLA on the 17th and 18th and a friend of mine asked me who I liked. Well I honestly didn't want to tell him so I kept avoiding the question by saying, "Oh, I'm sorry, I can't talk right now I am eating." This was kind of a lame attempt at avoiding answering him truthfully, which meant I failed at #08.

Nine hundred thirty (09:30)

Reading military time has always been a struggle for me. I had always needed to count from 12 over. I would also not know whether to say "oh nine thirty" or "nine hundred thirty hours". At around 9:30 am, while waiting for the optometrist to open, I had asked Tony the grand question: "What do you want to do before you die?" Like the funny kid that he is, he said some things I'm not going to mention. He then asked me, and I showed him my blog. He saw #53. Know military time, and I explained how I knew how to tell it, but that it just took me a while. I also explained how I didn't know how to say it. He then shared his little secret that he discovered by himself. He said that whatever time was over 12:00, to subtract 2 and erase the tenth. For example: 16:00 - 02:00 = 14:00. 14:00 - the tenth = 04:00. Therefore 16:00 = 04:00 pm. :D

Get shot.. That's crazy!

Now I know that as you read #36. Get shot and survive you would think, "Wow what's wrong with her? Is she crazy?!" No. I am not crazy, I am just very curious.
I have always wondered about the pain of being shot. It all started when I had a dream that I had an incredibly intense and feirce feeling, which could be described as pleasantly painful, on my leg. In the dream I felt this pain intensify untill it became pleasant and then I died. The pain hadn't come from getting shot, but it came from getting sliced by a machete by a zombie who was a Boomer from Left for Dead 2. Although I got sliced on the leg, I think that the pain would be similar. I obviously wouldn't like to get shot and die, but I think that getting shot on the leg or shoulder or somewhere where it wouldn't be fatal would be worth while, as long as I didn't die or get dangerous injuries. After getting shot I think it would be cool to tell my kids, if I have any, "You think you're tough? Huh? You don't intimidate me, I got shot once you know? I can take you!" Haha that would be funny, but seriously I think it would be a great experience to feel the pain, not saying I am masochistic or anything like that, but I think it would be a good experience.
