Blog Post #1: the apocalypse begins.

Do aliens exist?


Let me tell you why.

In 2012 I was on a red eye flight on my way back from Alaska. As the plane was asleep, I looked out my window to see a spinning chrome “dome like structure” that was blinked with red and green lights. I thought my eyes were deceiving me, so I shook my dad up who was passed out in the seat next to me.”I JUST SAW A FLIPPIN’ SPACESHIP I SWEAR TO GOD”, I practically screamed in disbelief. Annoyed I woke him up, my dad fell back into sleep after rolling his eyes at me. I couldn’t sleep at all during that flight. My legs were shaking, and my 10-year-old self was shocked and delusional at the thought of aliens actually existing.

Since that flight, I have always believed in aliens. Sadly, my family doesn’t believe what I saw that night, BUT I SWEAR…I saw what I saw.

I’ve always been a little bitch when it came to scary movies, so I’ve spent most of my life swerving away from anything aliens and or zombies. The only apocalypse movie I have ever seen is called Warm Bodies. It’s a comedy, and I only saw that movie because I was on a date with this nerdy cute boy from High School and I didn’t want to be a bitch and ask him to see a crappy rom-com. I thought I would hate the movie, but I actually LOVED IT. It was the perfect amount of Apocalypse and comedy mashed into one. Besides that, I truly haven’t read any sci-fi type of novels or seen any movies that have to do with the apocalypse. The closest thing to a sci-fi book I’ve ever read was the Hunger Games, and I only read that because EVERYONE was reading it. This class is for sure going to challenge me since I truly haven’t seen much media regarding aliens or apocalypses. I’m more of a Cupcake Wars and Gossip Girl kinda gal, however, I am extremely excited to get out of my comfort zone and dive in to everything #TheEnd106 will be.

I’m not sure what my favorite genre seems particularly interesting to me because frankly it ALL seems interesting. This is all new to me, so if I seem dumb when it comes to aliens eating other aliens or preparing for the world to end- be patient with me. I am excited to emerge myself in all things alien invasion, zombie madness, and plague type of things. Although this will be a challenge for me, I am ready for THE END.
