June 18th is International Panic Day
you're looking for something to do today then let loose because it's
International Panic Day! Don't bottle it all up inside; let it
out! Let's get right into celebrating International Panic Day!
WHY IS THIS A
Today is a holiday because everyone always tells you not to
panic and just bottle it up inside you. They try to tell you everything
will be alright and proceed to tell you how to think and go about
things. Well today you can say F them and just let loose. If you feel
the need to panic then get it out of you and then work on fixing the
problem. You might actually feel better after you panic a little.
When we panic we're usually afraid of something happening or
we're overly anxious and we let those feelings take over our thoughts
We might do something without thinking because
we're panicking or we might just throw a little fit. But once the smoke
clears we'll get right into solving the problem or feel calm because we
ran away from it. And the word panic actually came from the
Greeks, as it pertains to their shepherd God named Pan. Pan was told to
have enjoyed scaring sheep and goats... what a jerk! And if you've ever
heard of the battle of Marathon then you might have heard that the
Greeks believed that Pan helped them in their victory. Why? Because the
soldiers on the opposite side ran away with such fear that Pan must
have had some hand in it. Are you ready to let Pan take control
of your day?
So, how can you celebrate today? Well, you just let loose! If
you're afraid of something happening then let it be known. Run away
from it, scream about it, TYPE IN ALL CAPS... just get it all out. But
once you're done panicking then take a look back at the issue and solve
it. Get over that initial panic, that burst of fear, and then just move
on. Sure, you might get a few weird looks today... but just tell them
it's a holiday. I'm sure they won't understand ;).
And if you
don't want to be seen as a weirdo then tell everyone at work about the
day and say they should all take part too. Tell your family and friends
too... let them know it doesn't matter if they panic over anything
today. It's a day without restraint; a day to really let people know
what you're thinking and when you're afraid. But you could really
have some fun with today. Like if the littlest thing happens to you,
you could just run off screaming. Then come back 5 minutes later like
nothing happened. You'll definitely get some looks when you do that but
it's all about having fun with your panic, even if it is a bit
exaggerated. See how many times you can do it before someone says
something to you ;). Have a great day and... oh, crap did I leave
the dome light on in my car!?
