It may not be news to you, but it will be when I say it.
It’s the end of the world! Supposedly. According to the Mayan calendar the world is set to end December 21st, 2012, 12/21/12. With the countdown of the days many people took this very seriously such as schools in Michigan who closed their doors for the school day as well as over 1000 “cult members” who were arrested in China for spreading the message. Whether or not you believe this is going to happen, you know what they say, it’s better to be safe than sorry. Here is your End of The World Checklist.
5. Make Amends.
We all go through problems with each other that may be very petty or something that can be resolved. Make amends with as many people as possible. Call them up, tweet them, send them a Facebook message and put your pride to the side. The exchange does not have to begin with you saying sorry, you don’t have to say that you are sorry at all. Just clear the air with that person so that if the Zombies run after you, that’s one less person that will trip you on the way to safety.
4. Make a List.
Get out a sheet of paper. On one side write a list of your accomplishments and everything that you did in your life that you were proud of. On the other side write all of the things that you didn’t get to do. If the side with your accomplishments are longer, then you’ve lived a good life. If the other side is over however, at least you have something to look forward to doing in the afterlife. Right?
3. Clean Your Spirit.
Face it. We all have something we believe in. Whether it’s God, Allah, Jah, Buddha, Sun, Moon and Stars, we all have something that gives us hope or solace. Take this time out to do what your belief says to do in these last days. Light some incense , pray, read a text. Go outside and breathe the air. Give to a charity or just a fellow neighbor. This way you know you went out with a clean heart.
2. Talk to your family/mate.
Whether the family member is near or far take this time out and talk to them about real life issues. Many times we pass our family members with small talk and wait until the holiday to “give thanks” or “love our family members.” Use this moment to hash out past disputes about who was right or wrong. Get physical, give some hugs and kisses. Get on Skype, buy a calling card, do whatever is right for you. With your mate, talk about the good times that you have had so far and what things would make it better assuming the dawn of reckoning won’t come. This way you can move forward knowing what to do.
1. Drink a Nantucket
Jadakiss was onto something when he said that he would “drink a Nantucket” if he had 24 hours to live . If you are unfamiliar Nantucket refers to Nantucket Nectars, a fruit drink sold in a bodega near you. Sometimes you just have to sit back, relax and enjoy the life that you have. If you don’t want to sit back and relax, do all of these things on the list while you are drinking a Nantucket. A Nantucket Nectar has to be involved somewhere.
