I tried to find a ‘picture of the week’ but there were only two options and I didn’t think either of them were suitable. One was a picture of the resident squirrel attempting to break into some bin bags left over from a party and the other was the address of a local dentist. See what I mean?
It has been a crazy week, there has been so much to do. In each of the subjects we are more than one hundred pages into the text book. Some of them we are more than two hundred pages in. I managed to get some studies done at the weekend but not as much as normal because I went home for my Dad’s birthday. When I first decided I’d go I almost talked myself out of it thinking that it would stress me out too much with the amount of work I had to do. When the time got closer, taking a break and seeing my family became ever more important. Now, post-weekend, I can definitely say it was the right decision. It’s not something I can do too often but it was a great refresher.
We’re in our fourth week of ground school and today finished the third day of that fourth week. In two weeks we will have our T1’s. Test 1’s are some school tests to see how well we have understood the things we have been taught so far. They will be a good measure of how on track we are – something I’d quite like to know. Before our JAR exams we have school finals but they are a little further down the line right now. Not as far as you think though, by the end of this week we’ll be a third of the way through Phase 1.
I’m finding Meteorology and Principles of Flight the hardest right now, for reasons that I’m not quite sure how to explain. Simply put, they are complicated subjects. I’ll see if I can expand some more on this later, I’m not even sure what you want to know. All I know is that it’s time to get a decent sleep so I can pay attention tomorrow. On occasion the only thing keeping me awake is the freezing cold air conditioner blowing in my face.
Quote of the day: You know this stuff, you just…forget it.
