The most engaging life I've ever had

exciting, fun, a little intimidating, definitely worth it.


Just got out of my ATC exam

The prof said it was going to be a lot harder than the other exams we had, so I studied a ton. Then I went in and did the whole 50 question exam in 15 minutes. It really helps to be a pilot and to fly in all the areas that we were questioned over, cause I practically had to memorize everything about them already. So now I have:
CORPS Thanksgiving dinner
make a great dinner
Psalm sing in Elkhart!
go home!

All that party stuff should probably be replaced with project/essay/creative/airline application writing.

Joy out.


I gave blood today.

Shhh! Don't tell mom or she will go postal on me. Apparently my blood is a precious commodity and I gave it up for a couple juice boxes and a cookie. Afterwards I went to the admissions hall for a meeting with the assistant dean of student activities for our group project and Mrs. Alberson and Eric walked right past me on my way out. Unfortunately I didn't know it was them at the time, so we were like two blades of grass being cut in the dark. After helping another lady find the building she was looking for and my class, I went to the Wycliffe banquet with Ryan Harrison. It was a really great banquet. If you've never been to one, you should go.


Isn't Life Ironic?

I'm the one person in the world who thinks that really salty and greasy potato chips do not make a great snack, yet I'm also the one person who has to eat them.
Give me a fruit bar any day.

Sim was fun. I flew cross-country from San Francisco to Las Angeles. Had a beautiful smooth landing at the end. Still got chewed out though cause I was a couple feet off the centerline.



I finally got the hang of landing a 727 in 20 knot crosswinds. I sure didn't have it last week, and I don't really know what the difference was, but felt really nice to put that big baby right down on the centerline. Maybe I just needed to watch the other guys I fly with do it right, so I could get a feel for the visual. Whatever it was, I need to go prep for Bible study, so I'm out.
