Well I am BUMMED!!! driving to school this morning, my car gave me the “ice potential warning” which warns me whenever the outside air temperature is below 40 degrees. I went golfing yesterday with a friend who was on his fall break and it was a beautiful day, perfect to go golfing. So needless to say, the ice warning threw me off. I hate winter, not December, just January and February, they are two awful months and there is nothing to do and its just way too cold, so I am enjoying it while it lasts.
As far as school is concerned you can tell fall is in the air. Our trees on campus are turning bright colors, it is beautiful to see from the air! I remember flying to Joliet airport and there was a forest preserve near the airport. The trees looked magnificent. I really want to take one of my lady friends up to Wisconsin to see the trees and rolling hills up there.
With school, I am finding this year’s workload to be not nearly as bad as I was expecting. The main complaint I had to restarting the school year is the fact that I HATE writing essays. Knock on wood, I haven’t had to write any! It is refreshing, and a great way to get back in the swing of things (even though the swing has been already going for a month and a half… no big deal). The studying is still there though, believe me on that one. Between instrument ground school, Flight lab, and Aviation Regulations, there has been no shortage of late nights with me. It is a little of a bummer though, because I have been getting up early to plan flights. I usually get up at 5:30 to get a weather briefing and plan the flight to be at school for my 8 o’clock class.
