Went to see Collapse tonight...

I am still depressed.

One of the things that struck me the hardest, and honestly made me the saddest was this... If you were on the titanic and you knew it was going to sink well in advance what would you do?

The movie goes on to explain that there are three types of passengers:

1) They are doe eyed and confused... "what do we do?"
2) They know what to do and start building a life boat
3) They say "this is the funking titanic it can't sink", and go get a drink from the bar

It just sort of struck me... I am #2, and I do know what to do, but am I doing everything I can to build myself a life boat? The short answer is no. I am not doing everything I can do. We have taken steps together as a couple to do things, but we are not really feverishly building either.

I guess I'm not really building a life boat - I'm kind of shoring up my section of the ship and telling people I know that we need to fix the titanic or get a new ship.

I'm doing a little to make sure I have a life ring though, I suppose.
