11 Reasons To Make A Zombie Apocalypse Plan

11 Reasons To Make A Zombie Apocalypse Plan

We live in a world full of dead bodies.

We live in a world full of dead bodies. I mean, if you really think about it, there are thousands of bodies buried all over the world, meaning if there is ever a zombie apocalypse, there are going to be a lot of zombies and it won't be that easy to survive. However, if you are prepared when it happens, then your chances of survival increase tremendously. If you still aren't convinced, you should spend time making a zombie apocalypse survival plan. Here are 11 more reasons to consider.

1. If it happens, you're prepared

The worst possible thing that could happen to you in a zombie apocalypse is you die. If you have a plan in place, you can avoid that.

2. You might be inspired to take survival courses

Survival courses are a fun and important thing to consider, because they teach you how to do things like build a shelter, start a fire, and find water. They are a helpful thing to know in life, anyway. You never know when you might get stranded or crash land somewhere and need to survive on your own.

3. If any disaster happens, you have a base

By having a zombie apocalypse plan, you have a good place to start with survival techniques (because you took the survival courses) and you will already have safe places in your mind to go to in case of a disaster of some sort.

4. You won't be miserable if you're prepared

A lot of movies and T.V. shows that are based in a zombie apocalypse have characters that are sad and upset. But if you're prepared, you can avoid that. Make sure you fit books you love and GameBoys into your plan so you aren't miserable and bored.

5. You'll find out who is useful and who is not

When making your plan, you have to consider the fact that you can't save everybody, and the people who you are saving will be put at risk if you take too many people on. So you have to start thinking about people's skill sets while planning: your best friend is great at hunting and turning buildings into fortresses; her boyfriend, on the other hand, is good at beer pong. Sorry, boyfriend, you can't be in our survival party.

6. If you survive to the cure you'll be remembered as a badass

Imagine making it through what seems to be a world completely destroyed until one day people show up and start curing the zombie disease. While the scientists were off in their cushy labs coming up with a cure, you were leading a party of survivors through the war-torn streets of your city. If that doesn't equal badass, I don’t know what does.

7. Your friends will worship you for saving them

Well, the ones that made it through the usefulness test. But how could they not adore you for being so prepared and saving them from certain death? They will have to treat you the way the alien toys treat Mr. Potato Head in "Toy Story" after he saves them.

8. You get to do zombie research

You can't plan your survival without any knowledge of the enemy. You now have to watch as many zombie apocalypse movies as you can and play video games like "Left for Dead" to gain as much knowledge as you can on zombies and the types of situations you'll face.

9. You'll realize you need an all-black leather wardrobe

While watching these movies and playing those games, you will soon realize the coolest characters wear all black and a lot of leather. These characters also either survive or go out in a stylish blaze of glory. Making a survival plan gives you an excuse to go shopping for the coolest wardrobe ever.

10. It gives you something to talk about with new people

Trying to find a conversation topic when meeting new people? Easy, just ask them if they have a zombie apocalypse plan in place. If they are an intelligent, rational person, their answer will be yes and boom, you now could talk for hours comparing plans.

11. They are fun to make

In all honesty, making a plan with friends or family is a really fun way to kill a couple of hours. So go have fun trying to figure out how to survive when the zombie apocalype hits.

5 Perks Of Having A Long-Distance Best Friend

The best kind of long-distance relationship.

Sometimes, people get annoyed when girls refer to multiple people as their "best friend," but they don't understand. We have different types of best friends. There's the going out together best friend, the see each other everyday best friend and the constant, low maintenance best friend.

While I'm lucky enough to have two out of the three at the same school as me, my "low maintenance" best friend goes to college six hours from Baton Rouge.

This type of friend is special because no matter how long you go without talking or seeing each other, you're always insanely close. Even though I miss her daily, having a long-distance best friend has its perks. Here are just a few of them...

1. Getting to see each other is a special event.

Sometimes when you see someone all the time, you take that person and their friendship for granted. When you don't get to see one of your favorite people very often, the times when you're together are truly appreciated.

2. You always have someone to give unbiased advice.

This person knows you best, but they probably don't know the people you're telling them about, so they can give you better advice than anyone else.

3. You always have someone to text and FaceTime.

While there may be hundreds of miles between you, they're also just a phone call away. You know they'll always be there for you even when they can't physically be there.

4. You can plan fun trips to visit each other.

When you can visit each other, you get to meet the people you've heard so much about and experience all the places they love. You get to have your own college experience and, sometimes, theirs, too.

5. You know they will always be a part of your life.

If you can survive going to school in different states, you've both proven that your friendship will last forever. You both care enough to make time for the other in the midst of exams, social events, and homework.

The long-distance best friend is a forever friend. While I wish I could see mine more, I wouldn't trade her for anything.

This past week, the Jonas Brothers released a song and music video starring their wives (and in Joe's case, fiancee), completely shocking fans given the fact that there was pretty much no prior warning. As rumors are running rampant about their getting back together and a possible tour, now seems like a good time to reflect on their past. Specifically, my favorite songs that they've written. And if the rumors are true...I hope to find new favorites soon.

1. "Inseparable"
