Obeying Signs

Tuesday, January 19th, 2010

I have a friend who will not cross the street if the crosswalk sign shows red/don’t cross. Even if it’s 4am and you can see a mile in either direction and no cars in sight. Me, I’ll go ahead and cross. For a sign like this, my thinking is that it’s trying to help you out when the intersection is busy and set some standards. But ultimately, you need to trust your own judgment of when it’s safe to cross a street, not a sign. If that sign shows white/walk, but there is a car speeding to the intersection, you had better trust that judgment.

I Suck at Vacation

Wednesday, January 13th, 2010

I’m not sure I’ve very good at vacation. Whenever I do something, I want to really get into it and try and be the best I possibly can be at it. I know I can never do that with something like, say, snorkeling. As such, I have very little interest in it.

I also like to be mentally engaged. I like to relax in short bursts, but I can’t just “relax” for a week. My brain won’t let me.

I also don’t like to be hot. So sitting on the beach really doesn’t do it for me. I get hot and I get bored. I like to go on vacation where we all sit in the shade and do figure out logic puzzles.
