I was just looking at the date and wondering at it. There was a time in my life where I couldn’t have imaged today. If I thought of the year, 2015. It was a blank. Similarly if I look ahead to 2025. It is blank. What will I be doing 10 years from now. How will I have changed?
I remember first hearing about the 2012 event in college. I was overhearing students talking about how the event the Mayans predicted was a little miscalculated. It wasn’t until 2014 (or was it 2015) that it would actually occur. So they were talking about how the world was going to end in 2014 (2015?). At the time the miscalculation seemed mild to me. I equally couldn’t imagine where I would be at 2012 or the new date they predicted. I’d say it was 2005 that I overheard this conversation. 10 years ago.
It would be funny if this miscalculation ended up being the date of this coming September. It seems that the amount of miscalculation is a little in debate.
Steven Hawking: Mayans miscalculated by 8 years, 2020 is actual end of civilization. I do wish I remember the date I overheard. Articles about the miscalculation number range greatly. Either way, any of you upset by the lack of events in 2012 need not worry. The miscalculation is said to be up to 220 years off.
I wasn’t to into the 2012 hype. I was to busy being tired. I just thought it was cool to be alive during that event.
I have changed greatly indeed in the past 10 years.. It is true that I couldn’t have predicted my path. Now it is 8/8/2015 or if you add the 2015 together… 8/8/8.
It is an exciting time. It is a boring time. The wait is long. The wait is short.
“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way – in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.” –Tale of Two Cities, Charles Dickens
I think Charles Dickens wrote it far better then I could. I was thinking of cleverly intimating this for today, but there is not need. For “- in short, the period was so far like there present period”, that this opening could still be used today.
