March is Awesome, but…

Alright, time to get serious. March is awesome, but now that it’s over, I can dish out the dirt. This particular March was not that pretty.

The unrest in the Middle East and North Africa, especially in Egypt and Libya, really scare me. Not only will this crazy dictator Gaddafi not step down, but now for some reason, we’re sending fighter jets, or whatever the official term is, to bomb them? Won’t innocent people get caught in the crossfire? This just doesn’t seem like the best idea to me. Plus, the kidnapping of Iman al-Obeidi scares the everloving bejeebus out of me. I mean, that is some Big-Brother-1984 crap right there.

And then there’s the horrific earthquake and tsunami in Japan. I probably cried my eyes out that night, after watching the news because, wow, that footage is how most of my nightmares these days are formed. Not only that, but there’s a fear about nuclear radiation that’s growing. I’m so scared and anxious for the people of Japan right now.

So, as of now, I’m almost convinced that the world is going to end in 2012, one way or another. I’m half-joking, but half-serious. I mean, look. There has always been earthquakes. Hell, I’ve had more than a couple myself. But there has been so many big ones, and they are so frequent that the crazy 2012 believers are beginning to win me over. I’ve always kind of thought that when you die, you’re going to die, and there’s nothing you can do about it, so if it’s going to happen, it’s going to happen, and I’m more or less alright with that.

But earthquakes are frakking scary.

Of course, I’m obviously not saying this month has been all bad, I’m just trying to say that I’m not blind; these past 31 days haven’t been the best. But March is still awesome.
