New Years’ 2012: A New Year, A Fresh Start

Unfortunately, WordPress doesn’t have a New Years’ blog theme, and I ain’t spending money on a custom theme, so… I hope you guys enjoy the regular theme. 

Wow, time really flies by doesn’t it? I still remember when I was a Junior at MSJHS, going to the Junior Prom, being depressed because I couldn’t get a girlfriend, and learning about Transcendentalism, reading the Great Gatsby, and other pieces of literature from the best English teacher I’ve ever had. Of course, then there was Summer School for Alg. 2/Trig Second Semester, which I’m SO happy to have over with. But I’ve also wanted to get into drivers ed, so I convinced my parents to pay for it. As the 2011-2012 school year began, I was ready to make the most out of my last year of High School. Now, I’ve probably told you guys enough times about the college friend and columnist who inspired me. Heck, it’s probably imbedded into your head by now. As I turned seventeen, I said that I’d try to change myself to help out my parents and not be a lazy bum. Well, it looks like that’s going to be the number one priority and battle going into the new year.

Now, there’s previously been talks about 2012 being “the year the world ends”. Mayans predicted the world would end in 2012. 2012, the movie, depicted the doomsday scenario being a total continental shift in the Earth. Heck, even the Russian president talked about possible doomsday scenarios in the new MI. It’s spread like wildfire all over pop culture. Yet, there’s one problem. Remember the last time this doomsday hype was set off? The Y2K incident that was supposed to happen, but never did? So, the question is how the hell are we supposed to believe that “the end is near”? Now, as I mentioned in talking about religion in another column I wrote that I’m a scientific person. However, I’m still in doubt that all this “scientific evidence” proves that the world will end then. Regardless of my opinion or anyone else’s for that matter, that question is still up for debate.

As a method to try to motivate myself, I frequently use the phrase “carpe diem”. As I mentioned in my “Dreams” column, others have seized the day. Why not me? The ongoing battle between laziness and working my ass off still continues. I often try to immerse my brain into the murky waters of real life, but I just can’t. I feel I’m way too soft on myself, and as a result, my mom has to constantly help push me. Yeah, there’s one problem with that. What if my parents are both going to be physically impaired later in life? What happens when they’re gone and I’m on my own? These are all problems which I just don’t want to think of, but it seems I have no choice.

In the newest MI movie, Ethan Hunt (actor Tom Cruise) is alone with three other former IMF agents, what’s left of the IMF. The President of the United States had just activated operation Ghost Protocol, which disavowed the entire IMF. With no back-up, no plan, and no other choice, knowing that they’ve been implicated in the bombing of Kremlin which strains the relationship between the U.S. and Russia by a Russian mad man code-named Cobalt, they use everything left in their arsenal to try to capture Cobalt before he gets the nuclear launch codes that will erase the entire human race. Life often throws challenges at you, whether you like it or  not. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to counter and improvise to overcome everything that creates problems for you. Well, if it means “Carpe diem”, then as I’ve said before, I might as well quit complaining, and either doing something about my situation or move on with life. Yes, moving on with life doesn’t really solve anything. However, when you’re facing a difficult situation, it’s best to try to alleviate the stress before trying to think it through and thoroughly.

With the economy still quite bad and the government  and political atmosphere just too hot to handle right now, I believe the time has come for our turn, for our generation to step up. We may perhaps the laziest generation ever to have existed, considering our heavy reliance on technology to do things for us nowadays, really, we’re not all that lazy. How the hell do you think students are voicing their opinions and innovating every day? How are students like MSJHS Senior Sumukh Sridhara spending so much time coding? For one, please do not think it’s the whole stereotype thing; that Asians work harder than other ethnicities. I mean, I really don’t get why race sets us apart so much. But anyway, it’s simple. They’re extremely dedicated to what they do. So I really don’t think we’re as lazy as some people claim we are, because with success comes hard work. And by the way, it’s not just technology. It’s the daily chores that we have to do, the daily domestic tasks that we have to commit ourselves to do when the time comes for us to own a family. It’s  important to be a great role model for the youth because these are the lessons in life that we will be passing on to future generations. So this year, let’s do society a favor and step up to the plate. Let 2012 be not just a year of motivation and productivity; let it be the year to remember to remember, especially for us Class of 2012. Let’s do this; let’s carpe diem. Happy New Year, everyone.
