The Survivors Club – Book Review

survivors-club-book-jacket-mdn

Ben Sherwood conducted research on how some people mange to survive traumatic events that have a high rate of fatality.

He interviewed survivors, talked to doctors, and other researchers and then he complied his findings in a book titled The Survivors Club.  He also explains how people can improve their chances of survival during a crisis event.

I thought it was an interesting book.

 

Nursing Home Shenanigans

I was thinking about what life would be like if I ended up in a nursing home in my older years.  I was also thinking about ways to entertain myself while living in the nursing home.

This is what I came up with

  • Pop wheelies in my wheelchair
  • Organize midnight parties
  • Steal the nurses clipboards and hide them
  • Set off the sprinklers
  • Pull all the emergency cords
  • Fake vomit on the doctor
  • Put apple juice in pee cups then drop them on the floor
  • TP the place
  • Set up wheelchair races
  • Throw noodles on the ceiling to see how long they stick

Reminiscing

For some reason, I’ve been reminiscing about my youth.  I’ve been thinking about what I thought my future would look like.

My life today is nothing like I thought it would be, but that’s not a bad thing.

I have accomplished a lot of things and experienced a lot of things.  I’ve enjoyed my life, even though it hasn’t always been easy.

The good and the bad times all brought me to where I am now, and I am happy about that.
