Apocalypto 2012: No Excuses
I didn't worry about Y2K, and I wasn't too upset about some other hullabaloo between now and then either. When my HD TV died last night and then my keyboard connection to my computer fizzled - then I panicked.
As much as I credit myself as a barbarian capable of enduring all things, I enjoy my technology, I enjoy my entertainment perks and writing tools. Sure I have loads of books and oil lamps too if I need them, but when I have deadlines I want to be able to write.
Luckily my sister in law had a keyboard I could plug into the USB port and here I am. Did I then write since the ability was restored?
No. Copped out and fell asleep until after midnight and the lack of Mayan apocalypse.
Sometimes a miracle makes us lazy.
We look up at God and say "Oh, I took care of it myself, thanks anyway."
Maybe that's when the apocalypse really comes because you cheat yourself.
I have got to get more disciplined. I thought I was going to lose Internet for a week or so last week, and it didn't happen, did I work more? No.
