World peace, not so certain. But world unification, definitely. We will stop fighting amongst ourselves when there is an outside threat forcing us to unite. There needs to be a bigger threat than our neighbor in order to get this petty fighting to end.

Not saying I want a zombie apocalypse or extraterrestrial invasion, but it would be nice to see all of humanity getting along for once.

Honestly, I am my biggest bully.

On September 11,2001, I was a senior in college.

I was sitting on a bench in front of Ruby Diamond Auditorium.

My Italian class had just ended.

I was eating a hard boiled egg because I was attempting the "Six Week Makeover" and since I was a vegetarian and had a certain body type, according to the plan, I needed to eat a lot of eggs.

I looked around and thought that this was the most perfect weather on the most perfect day.


I didn't find out what had happened until I spoke to my apartment complex's land lady. She seemed very concerned by my happy demeanor and would only say that I needed to go home and turn on a television.


So I went to my apartment and turned on the television.

Where am I going, and why am I in this handbasket?

I am fine with anyone trick-or-treating. My only requirement is you put some effort into your costume. Being a middle school kid dressed in middle school clothes and carting around a plastic grocery bag you found in the bin is not going to cut it.

I understand not everyone can afford an expensive costume, but be creative with what you have around the house.

A stick of eyeliner is $1, and that can do wonders as face makeup.

I believe handwriting lessons will no longer be taught to children in school, if not in the next decade, than definitely in my lifetime. Your average child is quite adept at using the computer before they even start school. Your average college student takes notes no longer in a beaten spiral notebook, but on a laptop they drag from class to class.

Think about the last time you needed to write something down that wasn't a signature verification for purchasing an item. Even that requires no real writing. I've verified purchases by drawing a scribble the cashier barely looked at before finishing my transaction.

Sure people still jot down notes on bits of paper, but with everyone and their flying squirrel carrying an iPhone with the note jotting application, there is no need for notes scribbled on bits of paper anymore. You don't even need to write on the tablet. Just pay $1.99 for the handwriting font and give your typing a more personal look.

With the green movement becoming so popular, I can see there being pressure to stop writing on paper, or incentives given for going all electronic in your day to day dealings.


I believe cheques will no longer be offered when you open a checking account. Bill payments are available online, just a quick click here and here and money is transferred from your banking account, or PayPal account, to your landlord's, utility's, or student loan company's accounts.

Purchases in brick and mortar stores are made with a credit or debit card. Just a quick swipe and you are done.

Especially in this day and age, people want the most for their time, and writing out a cheque takes too much time for your average person nowadays.

Last, I believe privacy will become obsolete. With the advent of mobile phones, social networking sites, and everyone "needing" to be plugged into the system, it's harder to not know what is going on in someone's life. People like their information, and they like it fast.

Gone are the days of people beginning to worry if they haven't heard from you in a week or two. Now, panic spreads when someone doesn't update their Facebook status every couple of minutes. If you don't retweet, reply to a Facebook status, tumble it, or leave a comment, then comes the wave of phone calls, instant messages and emails to see if you are alright.

Honestly? I could die today, that would put a damper in my plans. Anything else that could go wrong is small potatoes with an easy enough plan to initiate to correct whatever wrong occurred.


(This is the wrong question to ask the girl who believes it could always be worse and we should be thankful for what we have right now.)


Bonus Question Answer:

Well, with death comes the answer to "What happens after we die?". Also no longer tied down by the asinine tasks we deem important in this day and age.
