Writer's Block: Apocalypse now?

It's the beginning of the end, according to Harold Camping. How will you spend what could be your last day on Earth?
I take all apocalypse predictions (whether or not I came up with them) with a "maybe it will happen, let's just wait and see" attitude, so probably the same as usual (i.e. on the same websites I normally go to, procrastinating the same things I normally procrastinate, and so on).

Yeah, I don't think the apocalypse will be anytime in 2011, but given the world we're in, it's not that far off either - it almost has to be in 2060 or earlier.

On one article I'd seen about the 5-21-11 prediction mentioned that a survey of how many Americans think that the apocalypse will definitely be 2050 or earlier.

When I read about it, I initially thought I agreed, and I was almost gonna say 2050 instead of 2060 in response to your comment, but then I decided there was probably at least a 15% chance (or so) that we'll make it past 2050, and so I said 2060 instead.

Plus, 2060 is Issac Newton's apocalypse prediction...and it contains the number 206 ;)

I feel like I would've lost my head/moved to Antarctica/become a hermit if I listened to all the apocalypse predictions, so same. I mean, it's like the bloody apocalypse is always impending, regardless of how many times the past apocalypse theorists have been wrong. :P

Given the state of society, I feel that it definitely is impending (just look how many posts I have tagged "apocalypse" or "ominous signs"). It probably won't be in 2011, but I'm almost certain that it'll be, at the very latest, 2060.

If I had to pick six words to describe myself, I would panic and ask someone for help because I am so downright random and weird that there is no possible way to describe myself or my journal in only six words.

So here's a list of things you'll probably see in this journal, in no particular order:
- Posts about my life
- Posts about my worrying about being disliked for any number of reasons
- Posts about the fact that I'm trying to fix all the things that are messed up in my LJ and DW and catch up on lots of websites that I'm behind on reading
- Backups of my posts on Miiverse now that Miiverse is discontinued... so if you want to know what some random guy was saying about New Super Mario Bros. U or Nintendo Land five years ago, this is the journal for you :P
- Quizzes and surveys and such
- References to random things I'm obsessed with
- Whatever else I feel like posting

Some of the random things I'm obsessed with are:
- LiveJournal (obviously)
- Looking back at things that were made years ago... old posts on LJ, etc.
- Math
- Weird dreams
- Video games (mostly Mario, Super Smash Bros., Kid Icarus, and Chip's Challenge)
- Video game music
- Homestar Runner
- Enya, my favorite singer and biggest celebrity crush
- Too many comics/webcomics to name... Garfield, mezzacotta, Terror Island, and Circle Versus Square might be the ones I'm the MOST obsessed with though. Oh, and Super Mario Maker Crash Course - that counts as a comic, right? It certainly counts as something I'm obsessed with :P
- Speaking of Super Mario Maker Crash Course, my biggest *fictional* crush is Mary O. Yes, I have a crush on the guide to a video game MANUAL. I'm so weird...


For a (hopefully) complete list of interests and Q&A about me, visit my profile. :) (Which is still in need of an update...)

This journal is semi-friends-only, but there's not much rhyme or reason to which entries are public and which ones aren't...
