– The world is going to end.
– You can’t stop it, so you might as well do the best you can with what time you have left.
– It’s not like we want this to happen or anything – no one does; but if we’re being honest about our human nature and all that stuff, then yeah: there will be some people who are relieved when everything goes down in a nuclear apocalypse because they don’t want to deal with their feelings anymore (they’ve been feeling really bleak lately) OR maybe an earthquake destroys them for reasons beyond anyone’s control – everyone has things they struggle with doing/being in different ways. Whatever your usual go-to reason is for why life sucks: chances are good
I lay awake last night thinking about the end of the world as we know it. I’m not scared, just curious how this all will happen. What’s your take on what will be happening? We’ll probably have some sort of warning before anything too drastic happens right? (This is a rhetorical question – you don’t actually need to answer). If you’re still reading by now, then here are my thoughts on what could cause doomsday:
-A catastrophic event like an asteroid or nuclear war that wipes out all life in its path; World War II seems inevitable with North Korea and America at each other’s throats. The next big cyber attack might wipe our computer systems clean so no one can communicate anymore; Imagine if the power goes out all over America. The population would be cut in half!
-A pandemic sweeps through, leaving most of us dead or diseased; The last time I had a cold it felt like my world was ending for a second until one day later when I woke up and it was gone. It took me about two weeks before I could tell that anything happened to me at all (that’s not how the flu works). What if we were attacked by something like Ebola? Imagine what life would be like without electricity – let alone computers or phones.
I hope this article has helped you think more deeply about your own personal apocalypse plan as well as how those plans might change based on who starts fighting first: North Korea or the United States.

Please note that this document is not designed to be a tutorial on how to use Google Docs; it’s just an example of what you can do with them! If you have any questions about formatting your content for long-form writing, please refer to our blog post: The Dos and Don’ts of Crafting Your Own Long-form Content.
Benefits of Google Docs: You can access them from anywhere that has a web browser; no worries about lost files or hard drives not working properly; you always have the latest version of your document because it’s constantly syncing with all versions on the internet; they are private and collaborative – for example, if someone else is editing at the same time as you, you’ll be able to see their suggestions and edits automatically without having to email each other back and forth.
Costs of Google Docs: There is currently an issue where people trying to edit a doc simultaneously will lose work due to saving conflicts when one person saves after another person does so (a bug in Google Drive). The best solution is to save after every other person saves.
Costs of Gmail: The free version has a limit on how many emails you can send per day, and there are ads in the sidebar that sometimes get annoying when they’re for things I don’t want or need anymore but have forgotten about because it’s been so long since I last used them. Plus, not everyone uses email these days (I know this isn’t true for most people). It would be better if Google switched over to their new chat app instead of sticking with Gmail; then they could also offer unlimited chats like Skype does. Overall though, it still works pretty well as an email service! You just have to make sure your inbox doesn’t fill up too quickly before you delete anything.
Costs of Google Photos: The free version has a limit on how many photos you can upload per day, but there are no ads and it supports uploading videos as well as still images so I have less to manage in my phone’s storage space! Plus they’ve recently added the option to back up your settings from one device to another which is actually really cool because now when I get a new phone all my stuff will be put onto it automatically without me having to do any work (or worry about not being able to find something important that was lost)! It would be better if we had more options for backing up our contacts though–I’m never sure what should go where and some people don’t use GChat or Hangouts but still want to stay in touch and it’s a lot of work to keep my contacts up-to-date.
The Cost of Gmail: I was really excited when Google finally introduced the extra storage space for free, because I had been running out of room! But now that they’re going away with personal accounts altogether..I’m not sure what’ll happen if I ever need more than 15GB (which is definitely possible). And am I supposed to move all my email onto Drive? That doesn’t seem very practical as well–especially since people don’t always have access to internet or use GSuite at their jobs. The whole thing just feels like another way to get me hooked into using Google products instead of competitors’ ones
Haven’t you heard? Gypsy Names is the end of the world as we know it.
The founders, who are so ‘social media savvy,’ made a big splash when they unveiled their new website at SXSW this year in Austin–the same place where Twitter launched six years ago and Foursquare was created four years ago. A lot can happen in five years on social media networks!
Gypsy Names stealthily built up an audience for its launch by pre-selling some names to celebrities like Oprah, Beyonce, Serena Williams and LeBron James–which might be why I just bought “Beyonce” for my future daughter without ever hearing about them until two days before its launch day (oops!).
The site is pretty easy to use, with a clean design and fun features like an “auction” section where you can bid on the names of celebrities that have already pre-sold theirs.
Gypsy Names isn’t just for parents who want their child to have celebrity status–it’s also great if you’re looking for something more offbeat than your run-of-the mill John or Jacob (or Olivia). There are some wild choices out there: Think Kolobok, Mowgli, Wren..I could go on! And other gems worth mentioning include Armani, Chancelor and Daenerys. I’m not so sure about those ones but they were all taken when I tried them this morning! I’m not sure if it’s the end of the world as we know it. But at least I’ll be ready to meet my little one when he or she arrives–with a name that will never get lost in translation. Links: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Google+, YouTube Channel
