Marine World

Fun place. My favorite rides in the area. New shows. Medusa, Roar and Vertical Velocity are great! Didn't have a chance to do everything I wanted to last weekend, so I might have to end up going again.

Saw a lady have a heart attack...

Sunday, after a long day at Marine World, my cuzins and friends and I where heading out when this lady had a heart attack right in front of us while her family was waiting for the tram. At first, the women appeared to be trying to sit down, and I've never seen anyone actually having an heart attack, so it didn't register in my head. When she collapsed completely, her family noticed. Forturnately, the staff responded quickly. Now that I've seen what one looks like, I will likely respond much faster if someone has one around me again. I hope the lady is ok.

"I became disillusioned by the delusions"

"I became disillusioned by the delusions" is a great statement made by John Nash (of A Beautiful Mind (backup link) fame, played by Russell Crow) when talking about how he apparently aged out of his schizophrenia. It's a powerful statement that I'd thought I share. Yes, I know schizophrenia is not curable, but there is a small number of people that seem to be able to age out of it. I haven't seen the movie about him yet, but did see a documentary about him where he was interviewed. He has a few quick, power statements. He seems able to sum up quite a lot in a very some number of words. Another great statement is how he likened dealing with his disease to "Putting your mind on a diet". In other news, this weekend ended up being pretty good. Spend some time with a friend in Monterey Friday night and spent Saturday with family in the Modesto area. This statement doesn't quite do this weekend justice, but I can't give every detail about thangs here. :)

Work and Play

Recently, I've been busy with work and play. Not getting online too much. But here I am, with another blog entry. No new news or much to say just yet, but I will, don't worry. LOL
