I don’t want to sound mean, but since you mentioned the word “ridiculous” I have to say yes.

This world sucks… Tragedies happen all the time… It’s a part of life and it’s something we can’t control.

So relax, take a breath, tell everyone you love them daily, and you’ll feel better.

Terrible things happen when we least expect it- Pearl Harbor, 9/11 etc.  I seriously doubt that you have anything to worry about.  I refuse to live my life hiding out in my house.

I don’t blame you for being worried, I can only imagine the stupidity that’s going to occur on Friday. Ugh.

FWIW, my daughter goes with her dad to visit his family that weekend and they are leaving Friday morning. I hope the doomsdayers stay off the roads. They have a 6 hour drive and I worry about it enough on their regular trips without adding the stress of an influx of crazy people on the roads, too.

@ForeverBirds:  I can understand that you’re more worried about other people being assholes but I would think these folks would already have geared up by now, no? They have had years to prepare!!

Has anyone seen Seeking A Friend? It’s newish with Keira Knightly and Steve Corell and basically it’s the end of the world and while there were a few riot scenes, most folks were just partying their asses off. I imagine a lot of people will be going to work hungover on the 22nd and that’s the extent of it. Ha. Shoot, I should think about planning an end of the world party!! Thanks for the idea. Always like a good shindig… 😉

@Rubbs:  +1.

 

Nothing is going to happen, try to relax about it.  Give them hugs and kisses and tell them you love them all the time.

The world was supposed to end mulitple times in my 29 years and there was not mass chaos on those days… I think you are, yes, being ridiculous.

I think you’re feeling the way you are because people are making such a huge deal about the date and any horrible tragedies/devastations that occur. 

IE:

  • Superstorm Sandy to hit NJ.  One of the most devastating storms in our history.  People assume it’s because the world is going to end.
  • Zombies?  The drug addicts who smoked PCP that turn into cannibals.
  • Tsumani and earthquakes.
  • Global warming.
  • Our economic status.

…the list goes on and on.  The media and our social networks have used it to their advantage to attract us all.  They’re making money off of our obsession of crazy, unexplainable/unpredictable things and events.

@ForeverBirds:  I always have the worst end of the world nightmares. All the “end of the world” talk and my SO’s zombie love have been killing me lately.

I know people probably think it’s ridiculous, but my family has a plan in case the world goes too crazy someway somehow (I doubt zombies or end of the world, but there are other terrible things that COULD happen!!!) That does make me feel a bit better….

Like you, I’m also a worrier. And if I don’t have something to worry about, I go find it. And no school for a few weeks!?! I’ve been obsessively reading, playing video games, working out, and working. lol
