July 26, 2016, According to the calendar, it's All or Nothing Day, or Seize the Day, as others would say. Carpe Diem. But unlike the cliched nature of what our modern world would have you inclined to believe, the saying goes farther than just a t-shirt slogan, Instagram caption, or Tumblr aesthetic.

There is no way you entirely like your life, so you can just stop pretending for the sake of appearing cool on the internet. Without looking, I can probably guess that if you're a teen, you're itching for more money and freedom. Twenty-somethings are likely stuck inside an existential turbine known as a quarter life crisis (looking for money and freedom.) And thirty-somethings are almost certainly bogged down by responsibility, (in the hopes of gaining more money and freedom.) With All or Nothing day, the calendar isn't necessarily urging your docile and domesticated self to pull a Jack Nicholson and head out to fulfil a lifetime of goals with a bucket list. But a risk will do you good. A single goal accomplished today, could entirely change the direction you're heading in to make those goals of yours that seem so far off in the distance, not so far away, after all.

But you'll need a soundtrack. So here are a bunch of recently released songs (minus Drake, because YOLO) that will help inspire All or Nothing Day 2016. It's summer, log off.
