Dear Mr. Dirkmaat:

Thank you for your application fee and tuition deposit payment, all required documents and especially for allowing FlightSafety to be of service to you.

We have scheduled you to attend the Professional Pilot Program on September 7, 2005.


Not that I didn't have faith of being accepted, but this is just another step into the right direction. I spent the good part of the evening yesterday throwing crap away. I cleaned out a drawer that I have been filling with receipts for about 5 years.

Exciting day for me!

My application for admission

I have submitted my application to FlightSafety in Vero Beach, Florida. I'm awaiting a response letter from them. If all goes well I plan to start on September 7th, 2005.

I have started selling practically everything I own. I still have a long way to go, in such a short time. Trying to get everything in order like this is hard. In the end I think I'll probably just give most of my stuff away.

I've been told that all I need to bring is clothes, and an alarm clock. Hopefully I can manage that, plus my computer. How else am I going to keep in touch? 🙂

Well I guess I should go do some work now…


I think I have everything the way I like it…


I had told some friends that I would set this up eventually to track the drastic life changes I go through during the next few years. Apparently I needed to do it at 10:30 at night. I’m not really sure where I’m going with this whole thing yet, but maybe someone will read it. I thought it would be a nice way to keep my friends and family up to date with my life.
