So today is the infamous first day of flurries here in Romeoville, NOT GOOD!!! Now for me, I love summer and despise winter. Now that the snow is here is not a good thing! I hate being cold and yea, it isn’t a good day in my book. On the plus side, though, Christmas is near! 44 days! (Don’t question my logic, Christmas = Epic, Winter = Misery) What happened to this semester??? All the grounds faculty have strung up campus with Christmas lights and I can’t wait until they start lighting them up.
As far as classes go, I can tell that they are starting to wind down. The assignment schedules are getting shorter and the talks of final exams have started. I have just picked out my classes for next semester, and it looks like it is going to be mostly uninteresting gen eds (philosophy, music for listener, Search for Faith). But, on the positive side, this should be the last semester with mostly gen eds, which is very exciting. I also have determined what my minor will be, well actually double minor: Flight Dispatch and Business, so I pretty much have the rest of my time at college mapped out. If all goes well, I found out that I actually might be able to graduate early.
Onto the interesting flying stuff, I just signed up for airplanes for next semester. I am going to be flying Cessna 172′s with glass cockpits. I know that means a lot to you, but its a computer screen that I look at instead of the gauges of older aircraft. I also get to keep my time block of 9:30. Last year, I got stuck with the 7:00 A.M. flight block, which was very early, and I am not a morning person. I was waking up around 5-5:30 getting weather briefings and I resembled the walking dead once 6P.M. rolled around.
That’s about all I have for you, ’til next time!
