I admit I didn't know what Carpe Diem meant until I watched that Dead Poets Society flick with the late Robin Williams. (DPS isn't one of my favorite RW flicks, though it WAS better than Popeye!)
However, for those who haven't seen DPS, Carpe Diem is a phrase that comes from the Roman poet Horace & means "Pluck the day", although it's usually translated as "Seize the day" as in DPS.
So, like Robin Williams, I say seize the day . . . by the BALLS! (Or, of course, any other appendages you wish to grab!)
