While I consider myself a fairly rational person, most of my unfun tendencies stem from the fact that we simply have no control over certain aspects of life. Some days I am seemingly cool with it, others I find myself Googling “how to stop asteroids…”

I first heard of the upcoming Mayan prophecy back in 2009. Though it was constantly on my mind, discussing the end of days three years out seemed a little excessive, so I tried my best to suppress my fears…until now.

Whether you refer to it as “Doomsday,” “The Apocalypse,” or simply “Friday,” December 21, 2012 is just around the corner. I tuned into a National Geographic special earlier this week that invoked so much panic I had no choice but to follow up with Snooki’s E! True Hollywood Story.

A few people I know have decided to throw parties, as this might be our last chance to really let loose. Considering I won’t have to worry about a lactose-induced hangover, I plan on hitting the cheese bar hard. But really – feel free to pick your poison.

I took the liberty of creating an Unfun Party Playlist should you also be attending an End of the World Soirée.  At first glance this mix might seem a bit eclectic…play it on a loop and you’ll realize it sounds more like a mediocre prom night.

  1. Till the World Ends by Britney Spears – Duh.
  2. Die Young by Ke$ha – No doubt this crazy bitch has all the tools to survive the apocalypse hidden in her glittery weave.
  3. Dancing on my Own by Robyn – What I consider to be the greatest dance song of the century…Get it girl.
  4. Countdown by Beyoncé – Vaguely appropriate, yet upbeat enough to get the party started.
  5. 1999 by Prince – Because I haven’t had this much anxiety since Y2K.
  6. Cha Cha Slide by DJ Casper– One hop! One last time…just for shits.
  7. Let’s Have a Kiki by the Scissor Sisters – Like they lyrics say…A kiki is a party, for calming all your nerves.
  8. Umbrella by Rihanna – An inspiring tune that celebrates both friendship and bad weather.
  9. The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly) by Missy Elliott – On second thought, who needs an umbrella when you can pop and lock it inside an inflatable garbage bag?
  10. Graduation by Vitamin C – This 11th grade tear jerker is sure to reveal your party’s weakest links.
  11. Desert Rose by Sting – When I close my eyes and try to imagine Earth after people, this song is all I hear.
  12. Stayin’ Alive by The Bee Gees – One last attempt at positivity. Shout out to the optimists!
  13. My Humps by The Black Eyed Peas – A look back at one of our generation’s most cherished gems.
  14. End of the Road by Boyz II Men – Classic R&B with a side of impending doom.
  15. Shoop by Salt-N-Pepa – I once dreamt Queen Latifah and I performed this as a duet at karaoke…Will it ever come true?

Unfun Fact: Even if you don’t believe in the apocalypse, I think we can agree that a Xanax prescription is in my foreseeable future.
