Hello, my name is Julianne and I’m a Zombieholic.

(There’s a pause as all the other Zombieholics in the room chant “Welcome Julianne”.)

So what would you do if the dead rose? Would you be paralyzed by fear or do you think your survival instincts would kick in? It’s an interesting question and one I’m sure many of you have asked yourselves.

What would I do? Well, I’d like to think I’d attempt to survive. I do have a plan that involves packing up and going north into the relatively uncivilized wilds of Northern Ontario. Let’s face it, the cities are going to become death traps fairly quickly as the epidemic takes hold and people to try to escape. Utter, freaking chaos will rule the streets. Sure, some will be able to get out, but many will not, That’s just fact. And it’s fact that I will be avoiding areas like that.

While my plan is simply to head north, I honestly have to wonder if I’d be able to survive. I do have some skills: I can fish, collect wood, start a fire, be observant of my surroundings; but how would I truly last out there? Would I get bored too quickly? Scare the crap out of myself? All of these things are highly possible…

At the moment, my supply of weapons is limited, though I do have a few connections on my survival team – provided I can get to them or they can get to me after it all goes down. While I’m not worried, I guess I am a little. I have a few items that I feel are important and if push came to shove, I’m relatively certain I’d be able to kill a zombie (I’d give it a good go, that’s for sure), but could I kill lots of them? They make it look so easy on television and in movies, but getting through a cranium isn’t actually all that easy…

So tell me, what would you do? Would what you be willing to do if it meant survival? Let me know if the comments section—there’s strength in numbers, but that’s something they’ll have too!
