[rant on] so I'm taking this class (name removed, I'd hate the prof. to read this ) so I have class 2 hours a day, 4 days a week, then I'm flying once or twice a day, 6 or 7 days a week (if I can) each flight takes about 2-3 hours by the time I drive my ass out there, grab the weather, do my calculations and preflight the plane. so last week was the first week, tuesday (second day of class) we had an un-announced quiz, wednesday we were volunteered for extemporaneous (I butchered the spelling eh?) presentations without prior warning and had a short essay due via e-mail, thursday I can't remember, I probably blacked it out subconsciously, today we had an outline due (mine was 40 pages) and another email essay kind of thing, MORE extemp. presentations (SURPRISE!) tomorrow we have a test, and another outline due (only 5 pages this time) wednesday I don't want to think about. to top it off, I have an hour presentation to give ON MY BIRTHDAY [rant off] ok, i'm done whining, back to studying.
