All In

Today is Go For Broke Day! Today is a day to put everything you have into doing something that might earn you a very nice prize or reward. I hear this phrase used a lot in poker games or movies about poker games, but every once in a while people use it for random situations. However, in my opinion, it doesn't make much sense. Maybe I'm missing out on something but shouldn't it be something like "Go for it" or "Risk it all". Oh wait those phrases already exist. Still, "Go for Broke" makes it sound like you are going for the end result of being broke. I was under the impression that was not a desirable outcome in any life circumstance. Oh well, enough of that. Today, if there is something that you've been wanting to do, but thought of it as "too risky," it's time to put all your chips in and hold your poker face. Who knows? You could finally get that job/girlfriend/verdict you've been after for a while.

Thanks for reading!
