Today's Quote:

"Tomorrow is only found in the calendar of fools."

ーOg Mandino

 

= This quote hits me hard. It basically means that whatever you set for tomorrow, if you can do it today, right now, do it. Often times, I leave everything to that tomorrow that I always postpone to another tomorrow. There's a Latin phrase that is kind of related to this, which is "Carpe Diem". It means "Seize the day", or "Make the most out of the day".

Today's Grammatical Point:

"pandemic" vs. "endemic"

 

In relation to what has been the most controversial topic for this year so far, Let's talk about the difference between a "pandemic" and an "endemic". Generally speaking, an endemic is more serious than a pandemic, mainly because of the number of people affected and the scope of the affected area. An endemic refers to a group of people in a certain area, such as Malaria in some parts of Africa. However, a pandemic affects all continents, all countries, for example, COVID-19.
