Who is YOLO anyway?
October 1, 2013
I just realized we have failed to explain YOLO. Is it a boy? Is it a girl? Is it a HE-SHE? Is it an alien? All good questions. It could be all or none of these. I’m not confused yet, are you? “YOLO” is an acronym for the phrase “you only live once.” It is often used as a hashtag on Twitter to bring attention to exciting events or excuse irresponsible behaviors. I guess our planned voyage could certainly be considered an “exciting event” and/or an “irresponsible behavior.”
SV YOLO will be the actual name of our yacht. SV meaning “sailing vessel.” It has also given us this ultra bad ass website as a vehicle to talk a lot of nonsense. In the philosophical sense, we ultimately just want to YOLO like it’s our job. You could also say: “take the bull by the horns, seize the day, make it count, etc.” I’m sure you get it now.
