This Election Will Be The Death Of Us

The apocalypse is totally happening this time guys I swear!!

This Election Will Be The Death Of Us
USA Politics Now

"THE END IS NIGHT!! THE END IS NIGH!!" This seems to be what everyone is saying nowadays whenever politics gets brought up. Whether you support Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, a third party candidate, or you're just waiting for the sweet release of election day it seems that everyone can agree that the apocalypse is coming and this presidential election has been the bringer of the end days.

Now though I may be a simple 18 year old and this may be my first time voting in the rodeo that is American Politics, i know when something is up. And this year something is way way up.

"But Jacob Sir," you may say -- and while i do appreciate the manners, sir is not necessary, a simple "Oh Captain, My Captain" will do -- "I don't smell any sulfur or see any headless horseman. How can you be sure that this is the apocalypse? We've survived dozens of so called apocalypses (Y2K, The Mayan apocalypse, and even the temporary discontinuation of Twinkies). There's nothing we can't get through!"

Wow, reader I am impressed by your modern day apocalyptic knowledge, you must be well versed. But while you are a mere novice in the apocalyptic arts, I am a master and i have seen the SIGNS.

Simple things you may have seen as just idiosyncrasies, I have seen the SIGNS in. Now give me a minute to finish this sacrificial ritual dedicated to the almighty Pooh Bear and I'll show you these SIGNS so that you too may prepare.

*Now if you will, imagine what in the blue blazes a sacrificial ritual dedicated to Pooh Bear will look like because I have no idea but wouldn't that be something to see!*

Okay now that i am finished here are a few signs to look out for the next time you see one of the *Cough* Horseman *Cough*, WHAT who said horseman?? I meant candidates, i swear....CARRYING ON!!

Firstly it is stated in several early drafts of the goofy movie script that i found in an ancient cave in Babylon that "He who shall inherit thy title of Antichrist shall warn thine public thusly by sniffing 666 times in front of thy entire world."

And i know this sounds crazy, i swear I'm not crazy, but if you look closely at all of the presidential debates so far you can see that Donald Trump has sniffed exactly 666 times. Now there's no need to look and count them all, you can just trust me. The other SIGN though states right after the part where Bigfoot shows up on Goofy and Max's camping trip that "She who wears only thine glorious armor known as the pant suit shall be the one to open the gates of Hades and let forth the Antichrist known as he who sniffs!"

THAT'S NO COINCIDENCE PEOPLE!! The end is nigh! Now build your arks, gather your animals, sacrifice your goats, and prepare!!

Separation Anxiety in Pets

Separation anxiety in pets is a real thing and recognizing the warning signs is important.


Since March, Covid-19 required most of the world to quarantine in their homes. Majority of people ended up working from home for nearly five months. This meant pet owners were constantly with their pets giving them attention, playing with them, letting them out etc. Therefore, when the world slowly started to open up again and pet owners began returning to normal life work schedules away from the home, pet owners noticed a difference in the way their pet acted. Many pets develop separation anxiety especially during this crazy time when majority people were stuck inside barely leaving the house.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.
