All I Want for Christmas…

is for the World Not to End.

There is lots of talk about the worlds end, to be quite precise December 21, 2012 is that date. The Mayan calender ends on this date which is odd that we follow it because it looks nothing like any calender I’ve ever seen, who’s to say that it’s even a calender. Oddly enough, predictions of climate change, aliens, zombies, blackouts, and many others have surfaced with relation to this date. However, people seem not to be  so shaken up by any of these events; with 19 days left you’d think everyone had lost their minds and began to cause mayhem everywhere. To be quite honest, I have a slight belief that something will be happening this month; all viral information has me in slight belief that there will be a significant change to the course of human life. Hopefully, these negative predictions are wrong and if not, I pray we survive it, learn from the mistakes that caused it, and change ourselves to prevent it from happening again. You see, how could I worry about an Iphone 5 with the thought that my mother would be investing her time and money in a gift that I will never be able to open. If these theories are true, we must add value to the time we have left. This Christmas I wish that we all put aside our differences as well as our wallets and spend this time with the people that really matter. What’s the Iphone 5 without a friend or loved one to call? A material item can never replace the wonderful feeling of love and joy. With the consumer qualities that we have all become accustom to since the birth of America maybe the world is in need of a life changing event. Not to say that consumerism is bad and money isn’t nice but what is most important to you? Throughout history we have witnessed many lives come to short and unexpected ends. Even if  you don’t believe the world will end in 19 days, live this holiday like it’s your last.

Merry Early Christmas,

Love Adventure

By Daisha Perez

Imagine a never ending vacation taking place in extraordinary locations  from the United States to Japan with your perfect mate and unlimited funds.

This fantasy vacation may  sound too good to be true but this is my idea of the greatest adventure and that is the adventure of love.

This vacation is ideal because it will be full of  intimacy, discovery, compassion, trial, understanding, and exploration.  There is no point to such a life changing experiences without being able to share it with that special someone who you plan to spend the rest of your life with. The perfect fantasy vacation is a getaway from reality where you and your lover can become one, migrating from continent to continent in search of beauty, culture, and love in earth crevice. With that one person by your side you need nothing else but to fall in love over and over again in a different place, at a different time everyday. Take pictures with the pyramids of Egypt, eat spaghetti in Rome, share a kiss at the top of the Eiffel Tower, relax on the beaches of Puerto Rico, Shop the streets of Tokyo, sight see in the Outbacks of Australia, and discover the creatures that inhabit the African Safari. Each night you would make love to the sounds of your surrounding culture and reflect on our daily activities; the people you met, the foods you ate, the things you saw.  The perfect setting for the greatest love story never told. I hope to one day travel with my soul mate (if I ever find him) to every destination on earth and share moments that only he and I will recall. Home is where the heart is and as long as I am with my love, I will be home.
