I almost died yesterday. No joke, the day after i write a blog post sarcastically poking a little bit of fun at the 12/21/12 hysteria I spin out on the highway while driving to school.
How fucked up is that?
Obviously i am glad no one is hurt and that i have had the ability to reschedule my final presentation for my Rhetoric of New Media class. But i think i am more hurt about the damage to my car than i should be.
I’ve traveled a lot in the past 7-8 years and in that time, my car (whose name is Jade) has been my constant. She’s seen me through various jobs, homes and girlfriends – i actually joke that she is the one woman who hasn’t cheated on me. The damage to the car isn’t drastically serious and i am waiting to hear a number from the insurance company. I guess if i had to look on the good side of this, it’s better my car blew out a tire before we have to escape to higher ground – this way the family and i can find better transportation.
If the world does end on friday i will be sad i am late discovering “Live with Kelly & Micheal.” Strahan is actually really funny on the other side of Ripa. They have a nice give and take. Plus it is kind of funny watching him give interviews. They just had Seth Rogan on and Mike kept laughing. It was like watching a really bigger, black Jimmy Fallon.
I feel like i may be wasting these last waning hours of existence. I’m sitting inside one of Bridgewater State University’s Cafeterias, waiting for my rescheduled final slot, watching the aforementioned television show and thinking about what if the world does end on Friday? I will be surrounded by my biological family, people who i do love and care for, but i can’t say that i really know them yet. I have been on my own and away for roughly the last seven years. The people who i know are spread throughout the country. If the world ends who and what do i depend on other than myself?
DECLARATION! If there is an existance beyond 12/21/12 i will be doing more top tens with hilarious in the title. People keep searching for them. Does that mean i am a whore for visitors? We all are, why the fuck would we be doing this if we weren’t?
Hopefully i will make it home fine. My dad lent me his truck so i could get up here (BSU) today. I just want to go home, finish my take home final and then sleep for the next month. Or three days. #Rapturewilling
