According to the Mayan calendar, the world was supposed to end on Friday December 21st 2012. All I can say is if this were true I would have been sincerely disappointed that I didn’t get the chance to go to college. Since this was another fluke like 2000, which we all knew it would be, let’s not become overly ambitious and try to outdo, or rather undo, our past.
For those who were honestly scared, as well as those who thought it all a bunch of hoopla, this apocalyptic end has given us the opportunity to reflect on the experiences we have had. This also gives us the chance to think about what would happen if and when, the world does end.
A little heavy for an article, but what I’m getting at is not a Y.O.L.O. moment, but more of a theme of remembrance and acceptance this might even be better than a New Year’s Resolution. You can make a new one of those every year but an apocalypse-wintersolstice-doomsday-resolution is once in a lifetime.
