Quick Update (posted by Lani)
And that's all it is, ya'll, I'm sorry but I don't have time or energy for anything else. I started my training on Monday with a class of 44 and a nice grueling 10 hour day plus the news that Saturday had been added to our training schedule, so we'll be doing 6-day weeks; by Tuesday afternoon we were down to 36, as of this morning we have 35 class members. I seriously did not expect it to be this difficult. To give you an idea, tonight's homework is reading 133 pages in the FAA crewmember manual and doing a 5 page worksheet, with a test on the material in the morning. Intense? Yes.
So, this week has been nothing but training, and that's just how it'll be for the month of October ... I'll try to blog in more detail on Sundays, but during the week it's pretty much class until 6 or 7pm, then study until I fall over from exhaustion, rinse and repeat. I haven't even picked up a hook or a pair of needles since Sunday night.
Ya'll wish me luck. It may not sound like much fun and truly it isn't, but ... I want this.
Oh and I'm going to be domiciled in Philadelphia initially. More on exactly what that means on Sunday.
