Life usually doesn’t fit into nice neat little lists, but that doesn’t keep me from trying. Welcome to my Tuesday 10, where I try to fit the messiness of life into a list of ten.
It doesn’t really feel like it, but 2012 is already halfway over. I have a few thoughts and expectations concerning the remainder of the year and thought that I would share them. Understand that this is purely speculation on my part. I don’t know the future. That’s obvious. In six months I might be able to revisit this list and see that it is really obvious. Or it might be prove to have been frighteningly accurate. Here are my predictions for the second half of 2012.
1. The world will continue to get crazy, and the global economy will not substantially improve.
2. John Cusack will not save the world, but he might ride on a big metal boat.
3. Glee will remain the craptastic assault on our pop-culture senses we all either love or hate, but mostly hate.
4. People who watch the Total Recall remake will remember why Colin Farrell disappeared for a while.
5. Conspiracy Theorists and doomsingers will live to conspire another day as the Mayan Calendar rolls to an end, and the world keeps going.
6. Michael Jordan will still be the best basketball player that ever lived.
7. My son will walk, and talk.
8. I will make significant progress on my book and my Master’s degree.
9. Mitt Romney will defeat President Obama in the presidential race. Many conservatives will claim it’s a huge victory, but no one will really be that happy about it, except for Mormons, rich people, and hyper-sensitive culture warriors.
*note* I consider myself an independent conservative, but have a fairly low opinion of pretty much every presidential candidate that took the field this round.
10. Regardless of how the rest of this list turns out, Jesus will still be the one and only Savior, Redeemer, and hope for mankind.
