The world didn't end. Now what do I do?
As a prepper I find it a bit odd when someone is looking forward to an apocalypse. I've got a lot of great things going on in my life and I'm not ready to give them all up just yet. I, for one, would like to see the second half of season 3 of The Walking Dead, for example. My personal feelings aside, there are those people who feel let down when a predicted apocalypse fails to materialize. It's actually been happening for thousands of years. St. Peter, first Pope of the Catholic Church, was a doomsday prepper of sorts, firmly believing that Christ would return in his lifetime. He spent the rest of his days trying to get everyone ready for the second coming. I think there's a lesson there for the rest of us preppers. Every day that doomsday doesn't arrive is another day for us to spend preparing ourselves and those we care about. Remember when you were in school and a snow day gave you a chance to study for a test or finish a book report? This is kind of like that. It also gives us a chance to enjoy life and remember that until the world does end there are a lot of cool things in it. So grab some friends, fire up the DVD and watch a movie. Maybe “2012” or “The Day After Tomorrow.”
