a little somethin to ease your mind

so let's bring up the big elephant in the room shall we?
that's right i'm talking about the date that occurs 10 days from now...

december 21, 2012

yup i did it, i brought it up.  now i know we are all thinking about it.  we know it's right around the corner, some could give two sh*ts about it, while others are a little nervous about what may happen.

now i tend to be a bit of a worrier.  ok a little more than a "bit".  i get anxious and nervous, i worry about things all the time.  it's a problem.  no i'm not a crazy person who you will see on the next episode of doomsday preppers, but i will admit that the date, and the fact that it's only 10 days away, kinda freaks me out a little bit.  do i think the world will end?  no.  i think my fear and worry come from the fact that what will happen on that day is "unknown".  but then i have to think, how is that day any different than tomorrow, or the next day?  the events that will happen on those days are "unknown" as well, but we don't fret or worry about tomorrow, or the next day.  we fret about that one date that has been haunting us for years, december 21, 2012...
so anyway, i've put together a little list of things to ease your minds about this"date"
jennifer's "not so end of the world" list

1. (and i'm talking to myself here as well), remember that famous verse in the bible?  mark 13:32?
"No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father."
 well if you have faith, than that should ease your mind right there!  i think at the end of that it should read... "not even the mayans"...
2.  if you have done any research on this at all (which let's be honest, most of us have) than you should know that december 21, 2012 is actually the end of the 13th baktun... not the end of the world!

3. the mayans actually celebrated the end of an era, which means on december 21st we should also celebrate instead of hiding out in a bunker preparing for the planets to align... (so grab a beer, or two,  and sit back and relax)

4. speaking of the planets aligning, NASA already proved that won't happen.

5. and earth will not be colliding with any unknown planet either...

6. my calendar has december 22nd on it... (yup that's right, it sits right there between the 21st and the 23rd)

7. i still have to go to work on the 21st, and i've already made plans for december 22nd.

8. i've already bought some of my christmas gifts, so if the world ends than that's a huge waste of time and money.

9. there is no astroid, or near earth object projected to hit earth in the next 10 days...

10.  don't you think if something serious was going to happen that we would be warned??  exactly!  and if something were to happen we have no control over it anyway.  hate to be blunt but it's true!
so there ya have it guys, my list of reasons the world won't end in 10 days.  
check out this article that a friend of mine emailed to me today.  i think it will help ease your minds a bit.  it talks about how to approach december 21st with a christian attitude.

so don't fret guys (and again talking to myself here) enjoy this christmas season and don't let this stupid date get in the way of your life, and especially focusing on what this season is really about.

i hope you all have a blessed day!


  1. The way I look at it is that IF (and I highly doubt it) the world does end...then I'll be strolling down the golden streets of Heaven. I def won't need 25 cases of water and toilet paper and 1000 canned goods!

  2. ahh someone finally posted about this big elephant!! thanks for the list, i feel better now :)

    and ps, i am a worrier on some days and other days it doesnt phase me that the world could end 10 days from now!

  3. I am an anxious wreck, and you just made me really happy.:) Thanks lots!

  4. It’s been some time since I seen the website. Wanted to prevent by
    way of and wish an individual, along with yours, an extremely
    happy vacation!
