YOLO Added to the Oxford English Dictionary
Drake said it first, “You only live once, that's the motto.” And now it's an official term. Check a dictionary if you don't believe me.
The Oxford English Dictionary has added more than 1,000 revisions and updates to its latest edition including “YOLO,” an acronym for “you only live once.”
Other additions include: “yogalates,” a fitness routine combining pilates and yoga, “moobs,” unusually prominent breasts on a man, and “gender-fluid,” meaning a person with an unfixed gender identity.
