Today, as I was sitting in my packed car in my parent’s driveway, saying my final goodbyes through the car window to my family before I drove up state to start my freshman year of college, I jokingly asked my dad if he had any final bits of wisdom for me. He said, “Yeah, never let success get to your head and never let failure get to your heart.” MMT

While all of the thoughts posted on this site really MMT and inspire me, I have questioned how this site really works. Some of these stories are so crazy that I find them hard to believe. And even if they are true stories, why do they all start with "Today..." Does that mean to say that everyone who enters these writes them on the day of the events? And this one...what colleges are starting now??? This isn't to take away from the motive of this site, which is unbelievable. I was tired of hearing about all those websites which depict how bad life is, so when I stumble across this site, it instantly became one of my favorites, and I visit it daily. I would just like some clarity to how it works. MMT.

When you press 'submit' it says above the box that they must all begin with 'Today' and end with 'MMT', yashi. This could have been submitted over a month ago but only accepted now though it is also possible that it could be a college that starts quite late on.

Many of the stories have nothing to do with "today", but for some strange reason the web owner insists that only good or bad things happen today. Maybe they don't subscribe to the time is linear philosophy, but the one that says what happened in the past and what is going to happen in the future is irrelevent. The only thing that matters is what is happening now.
