What Was Your Last…? Journal Prompts for the Last Day of the World

Falling

Turns out today is the last day of the world. So I thought I’d provide you with a list of “Lasts” prompts for a page about yourself. Better hurry if you’re a slow scrapbooker!.

You can also print it up and give it to each of your family members for a fun little mini-book. Or, perhaps you’re having a Last Day of the World party tonight? You can give the list to each of your guests for a fun activity!

(Why didn’t I think of that before?)

What Was Your Last…? Journal Prompts

Along with my own answers.

  1. What was the last song you listened to?
    Unnamable, by Matthew Santos on Rhapsody
  2. Who was the last person you kissed?
    My man, Izzy.
  3. What was the last book you finished?
    Riven Rock, by T. C. Boyle.
  4. Who was the last person you apologized to?
    I’m sure it was Izzy — I probably felt bad for sleeping so much because of these drugs I’m on for my crazy neck problems.
  5. What was the last television show you watched?
    Treme, which was good. But we just finished a season of Survivor, and it was brilliant. I know, it’s embarrassing, but I am completely enamored with Survivor. One of my very favorites!!!
  6. What was the last thing you ate?
    Pizza from Papa John’s with tomatoes, onions, olives, and mushroom. No cheese.
  7. What was the last thing you drank?
    Water. But the last non-water thing I drank was Chai Tea with soy milk. The last adult drink? Wine. Red. Unfortunately, it was a Pinot Noire. Obviously, I wasn’t the one who bought it. But I admit, it was a decent Pinot, so I enjoyed it just fine!
  8. Where was the last restaurant you ate at?
    We had lunch at the Blue Nile today — Ethiopian food. Usually we love it, but today it seemed to be missing the variety of spices we love so much. We had vegan cupcakes afterward at the brand new 98% vegan restaurant next door! We’ll be eating there very soon!
  9. Who was the last friend you spent time with?
    Izzy and I met Mitch for wine at D’Vine on Tuesday night. But he’s a cousin (and the one that bought the Pinot!). Does it count that we had a really good chat with our dance teacher, Jacqueline, since I kinked my neck and couldn’t really dance? She’s becoming a friend and we love her. But if that doesn’t count, we had fun with Chris and Sarah at their daughter’s birthday party last Saturday And I got to spend a little bit of time with my best friend, Tami, and good friend, Rhonda, at Tami’s daughter’s baby shower, also last Saturday.
  10. When was the last time you hugged your mom and dad?
    Since we live across the country, hugs with mom and dad only happen about once a year anymore. It would have been last July 2010 when we said goodbye after our fun trip out there.
  11. What was your last twitter or facebook status update?
    Twitter update: @FrancineClouden Happy birthday!!!
    A funnier Twitter update just before that: @Gela65 Yes. And it’s also a reminder that we have crazies running around.
    Facebook Status Update: We’re currently having more than half our house painted in bright happy colors. So bright, in fact, that it feels like a Dr. Suess house.
  12. Describe the last picture you took.
    at home 4107
    I took a picture of a scrapbook page in progress. But that was for work. My last picture for just for fun — I was taking pics of my oldest in a shirt and tie for a school presentation. We rarely dress up like that, and it was weird and funny seeing our thirteen-year-old looking grown up. The actual last shot I took in the series was after he’d swung his backpack onto his shoulder and turned to walk out the door.
  13. Who was the last person you called?
    Izzy. I was giving him a status report of my doctor visit.
  14. What was the last thoughtful thing you did for somebody?
    Hmmm. Hard to think on this one, as I’ve spent the last three days trying not to fall down from dizzy spells, or drugged up and asleep on my bed. I seem to remember…okay, I can’t remember doing anything thoughtful recently.
  15. What was your last creative act?
    Other than blogging? I spent some good time painting the other night. I’m falling in love.
  16. What was the last thing you did that was brave?
    I went to Berkeley for four days on my own. That doesn’t really require much bravery, but it does get you out of your comfort zone to go car-less to a new city all by yourself. I’ve taken little adventures for creative getaways every year for the past three years and it’s one of my favorite things to do.

    I like Survivor too.  Was it the most recent season you caught up on?  I thought it was brilliant, as well.  Survivor Night is my scrapbooking time around here.  Hubby watches baby and I head off to my craft loft.

    Ok, so today is supposed to be the end of the world, and then I guess from what the CDC was hinting at, tomorrow the zombies come.  As my sister said “I’ve seen Zombieland 8 times, so I think I’m prepared for the zombie appocolypse!”

    We saw the finale on Monday. Survivor is the only show we stay caught up
    with — we watch the day after it shows on TV when they release it online.
    :)

    I have to go find out what it was the CDC was saying now…

    I’ve had neck surgery so I know how much the neck can hurt and hope that you are feeling better.  Funny ( odd funny- not haha funny)  how heavy your head is when your neck hurts.  Take care and baby yourself for awhile.
    As for today being the last day,well he has been wrong before and we all have tooooooo much left to do.

  • http://www.paperclipping.com Noell

    Thank you! It’s true! Neck problems effect how you feel overall!

    And yeah — there have been so many assertions of the last day of the world,
    it boggles my mind that people continue to make predictions like this! I
    feel bad about all the money he and others have put into this! :(

    Thanks for the list idea and the other links. I am always looking for these kinds of ideas to scrap more of me and DH and not just the kiddos.  

    Hope your neck pain gets better soon, I can completely relate.  I just had foot surgery and have spent the past 2 days in pain, dizzy, drowsy loopy and sick from the pain medicine they gave me. My doctor changed the prescription last night and I feel so much better today.  

    PS –  I love Survivor too and thought this was one of the best seasons ever. ;)

    Afraid the world didn’t end here in Europe just yet. Or it’s a late start. As of now it’s  1½ hour late for the ending. And I’ve finished all the popcorn! So really happy to see this post, and all these prompts to get me going with the creative stuff. Now that I apparently missed the great finale. Hmm…maybe there’ll be a rerun later on for The World Ending!?

  • http://www.paperclipping.com Noell

    I agree — best season evah!

    Much luck on your foot healing! I’m glad the new med’s work for you! I’m
    already seeing a lot of progress with my neck and I wish I had gone to the
    doctor about it long ago!!!

    ROFL!

  • fancyscrapper

     Noell, you’re  a hoot! Thanks for the great prompts here. =)

  • scrappysue

    Oh my, Survivor is the only thing I ever watch on TV and we are about 1 week behind the USA.  We have watched it since the first season (DH and I) and now we watch it with our kids.  We all vote who we think will win and I make sure the votes are written on acid free paper, LOL!  Oh well, if the World ends, I’m happy as we really enjoyed the finale together.  Thanks for the fun ideas too, I am going to write them down now!

    Love these journaling prompts! My husband and I just finished watching “127 Hours.” I’m feeling so inspired to enjoy every minute of life right now. Gotta love survivor type shows and endless predictions of doom and gloom(;

  • Gab

     These are fantastic – thanks Noell!

  • Cindy Wick

    I actually did a layout. The kids saw the coolest pic of a billboard on Facebook. I downloaded it and made a page to remember the non-event, lol. It’s the first time I’ve ever gotten a layout done so quick! http://wickworks.blogspot.com/ is where the layout is. :)

    Because of your posting, on my way to turn on my first and last horse race, I stopped in the kids room, asked them some silly question about what they were doing in their ‘last’ moments and then I gave them both hugs and kisses… Oh, yuck mom was their reaction of course. And when I made them write the answers to the quiz on Sunday, not one of them answered #10 as “yesterday”! At least I knew what my answer was.

    Of course this was all just practice, right? We have another couple of months for us to get our activities to jive with the answers we would like to see.
