So it’s finally 2018, and it looks a lot like the year past. No nuclear wars have happened, the Tom Brady is still playing for the Patriots, and Congress still takes a government shutdown to get anything done on taxes. I feel like it’s time to step back and take a look at what’s really happening. At least, this year isn’t quite as bad as last year, when a man got stuck in an ATM.
Some tragic news this year includes the debate over DACA (Defered Action for Childhood Arivals), which is a program that gives certain people protection from deportation and also gives them work authorization. We are also at 2 minutes to midnight on the “Doomsday Clock” according to the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists. This clock is supposed represent how close we are to the end of the world with midnight being the end of the world as we know it.
On a better note, NASA has sent the GOLD mission to explore the lowest reaches of space, and the new Star Wars is set to release. My advice to you would be that this year may hold some fireworks, so sit back, and enjoy the show.
