11/11/11: Overrated

While I do agree that 11/11/11 is a pretty special date, it is also, I believe, overrated.

Yes, it happens only once every 100 years. Whoop-de-doo.

FB is plastered with "111111" or "11.11.11" or "11/11/11" statuses everywhere. And I imagined there was a flood of status updates at 11.11 am, maybe even at 11:11:11 am (by the kiasu fellas! xD)

Everyone keeps saying that we should make today memorable. Go out with friends, hang out with family, do "awesome" things that you wouldn't otherwise do. Drinking, partying, having fun! Wow. Sounds exciting.

If only we made as much effort to make each day in our life count as much as we do for this particular day.

We should make every single day memorable. Make every single day count. Spend time with family, friends, loved ones, every day. Not just on those days with repeated digits. Not just once every 100 years, eh?

Live your life to the fullest, EVERY DAY.

Then dates with repeated digits just won't be that big a deal :)
