This is a short story that I made in class. I decided to share the story with you guys. (: Thanks for reading.

My name is Kyrie Higs and I am 17 years of age. This is my journal; it is the summer of 2012 and I will write in this journal starting on Dec. 1 to the end of the month. Everyone thinks that on December 21, 2012 that the world will abruptly end. I don't think it will but what if it does? I would like to keep it documented, something to do now a days.

The world has changed; it has been increasingly cold throughout this year. I don't think winter was ever this cold. For heaven's sake, it started SNOWING in LA! LA out of ALL places! Usually it's warm throughout the year, sure it could get chilly. But it never snowed! Maybe the end of the world is going to be some kind of ice age? I'm starting to get scared; every second is getting closer to the "end of the world." And my imagination is going wild to what may happen.
On my way to school, I have seen many people on the streets with signs saying "The End is here", I have seen many Christians out on the street telling people the word of God. And I have seen people carrying signs saying that the other sign carriers are daft. That everything's going to be fine, that it's just getting colder because of some scientific reason. I saw groups of people crowding around the other groups of people looking for some kind of sanctuary, the leaders of the groups speaking their claim and their "proof." Spitting revolting things at the other groups close by that don't believe what they do. The days are growing more and more disturbed and all I wanted to do is go home, but I went right on ahead to the bus stop to go to school.
At lunch, all I heard in all my classes is the end. Students giving others their opinion, on what's going to happen; arguments breaking loose because someone thinks someone else's thoughts are wrong. All I wanted to do was get home, thank goodness I'm here.

Today's Saturday. OH GOSSH! It's freezing!! I went and bought two parkas today because it was so freezing…this is LA man not the Arctic Circle! Gosh it's so cold; I boosted the heater up at my house, my parents are going to be mad. I was watching the news today in the morning and they were talking about how ice was found on the beach. Goodness sake's what is this world coming to! I seriously think it's going to be some sort of ice age. I'm going to take a shower [thank God for hot water] and get ready for work; I work at the Starbucks on the corner of my street.
I got home and I have no job now; I got fired. This sucks, now I have nowhere to get money from unless my parents come back from their never ending "vacation". I got fired because apparently I have more complaints than any other worker at the coffee shop and that it's not just hurting the business, that I'm also making the customers mad. Wow...I'm so aggravated. I just want to sleep but I think I might watch the news for a bit. See what's going on today.
Omgosh, I'm sitting here in disbelief the news was over HOURS ago...I'm sitting here and trying to figure out what I just saw. I don't know if it was added into the shot…but it looked so real…
