My apologies if this has been posted before and if it's in the wrong place. I stumbled across this site while looking for information on Time Wave
Zero. If anything this site has left me more dazed and confused than better informed, yet over the last year I've returned daily to check out the hot
topics. Some are wonderful and have introduced me to things I knew nothing about, some have helped me to see things in a new light, while others just
give me brainache!
I have to wonder, as I'm going about my daily business, why, if the TPTB know the S is going to HTF, why they continue doing things, like improving
water and sewerage systems, building new roads, schools, etc. Generally improving infrastructure where they can and when they can afford to. Why do
all this if they know it's going to be obliterated, surely that would be a complete waste of money, which, according to some, they seem to want
regardless of anything
?? Especially this close to 'D' day. It makes no sense. I know some will say, 'Well they have to keep up the pretense
that all is normal.' And I'm sure they do, but projects get put on hold etc all the time, that is quite a 'normal' thing (even more so with all
the budget cuts). Yet almost everyday I see huge amounts of money being spent on things that should be there for the next 20+ years....
Which brings me to my choice (or choices) of the moment...
I've never been one to trust my intuition, I do try, yet when I'm faced with a decision to make, I end up humming and hawing for ages, trying to
make the right decision, eventually make a choice and BAM! Wrong choice
!! Or I make a spur of the moment decision and BAM! Wrong choice
Rarely do I get it right, not saying it never happens, it's just rare.
With those thoughts in mind, the whole '2012' dramarama, and my very poor track record on making good decisions, I find myself really
questioning whether or not I should go ahead with my dream and open my own business that I've been scrimping and scraping for, for the last 2/3
years. I now have what's needed to go ahead without going into debt, about €2000, not a huge amount for some, but it's all
that I have. It
wont make me rich, but with hard work, I can reap a comfortable living out of it.
Enter stage left .. the 2012 monster, which I knew nothing about until a year ago. I don't know what to make of it
?? There are some compelling
arguments for and against it. Here I sit with the money for my dream, wondering if my dream and me will be dust in 2 years time! Do I take the money
and blow it on a reasonable holiday for my family, a sort of 'last hurrah' while we still can? Should I be sensible and stock up properly on food (I
have about a months worth stashed away) and survival goodies for the coming apocalypse? Or forget everything I've ever read on ATS, go back to being
an unquestioning sheep, go ahead with my dream and hope that if the SHTF it's quick and over before I know what's hit me? With limited finances,
only one is do-able.
For better or worse, I have actually made my choice, which I wont reveal just yet because it would be interesting to hear what other ATSers have to
say if faced with the same or a similar dilemma...
So go ahead, gimme your best 'fors' and 'againsts' ...
