I can’t believe February is almost over 2 more weeks and it will be March even though we may get some bad weather in March still it will not last long and Spring is not too far away and I can’t wait soon it will be bike season. I have been having thoughts here lately about selling it, I made a list of my priorities financially to try to get through these next 10 months and unfortunately the bike is at the end of the list. Not that I want to sell it but my house is at the top of the list, next my utilities, then food and then my credit cards and last the toy which is my bike I will see how things go. I figure I can always buy another after I find my ideal job.
We have begun the third semester it is electronics interesting but hard right now we just covered Semi conductors. What I realize you can’t catch up on 40 years of technology in just the 10 weeks we will be in electronics, but it gives a good basic understanding and something good to build on. I am thinking right now, electronics is the field I want to get into.
I went to eat with Cris Friday night I enjoy our Friday nights out but that will soon end I just can’t afford to buy dinner every Friday night. Mom and I went to lunch Saturday and then we went shopping, after we got home she gave me a big meatloaf she had cooked for me, damn is it good I have been making sandwiches and trying to make it last.
My cold has been trying to come back I never really did shake it 100% but these last couple of days it has been dragging me down. Last night I actually went to bed at 9:00 and slept really well. I totally forgot about the Pro Bowl game, and I wanted to watch that too being the last football game for quite a while
We got our second semester grades and I got another 4.0 I was shocked as much as I struggled with Algebra but I guess I pulled it off I am thrilled, but now I see how I needed that tech math in electronics. That is it for my life for the time being I have a big test so I am going back to the books.
My second semester was over Monday I was pretty upset with myself after missing a question on my NEC final Friday our final was in 3 parts 44 questions they were not too easy Thursday I did not know if I missed any I thought I had done OK then Friday the instructor graded them that is when I found I missed the third question which I was almost at the answer in the book it was right on the next paragraph but I ran out of time then the third part was Monday he gave us 2 periods then later he graded them I got them all right so I ended up with a 95% so as usual I have too high of standards I was pretty upset at first I am now happy with the 95% especially since I actually saw where people failed it and I saw a couple 68% that would really upset me, So 95 was good I am anxious to see my GPA for the second semester I may find out tomorrow. It has been nice having 2 days off I went to apply for a job today that was advertised in the paper for a part time repair person for a retirement home however the position was filled yesterday but it got the jitters out of my system it has been 23 years since I have had to look for a job.
Our weather has been so nice and even though the Ground Hog saw his shadow it was beautiful and the long range forecast says the rest of the week is going to be warm and they are even calling for 50 degrees Sunday Maybe just maybe I might go for a ride the battery was dead in my bike I had the alarm set and forgot about it and it killed the battery so it is charging right now I hope it is going to be OK a dead battery will freeze in the winter and there is no heat out in my garage so the battery might be junk, I was going to bring it inside but I get so involved in my studys and life in general I tend to forget some things I am going to try to start it here in a bit if it took a charge I am going to pull the battery and bring it inside and give it a nice long trickle charge inside where it is warm.
I am really burning through the wood I am working on the last row I am going to be pretty low by the end of February I have a large supply but it is not split or cut but if I run out I can split enough to get me through..
