Happy New Year!

It has been an inordinate amount of time since my last entry. For that I apologize.

The holidays have left me in a daze of sorts. I went home for a few weeks to visit family, and friends. It was really great to see my parents again, and have dinner somewhere other than Taco Bell, or crappy canned food.

I came home to a very cold Florida. No, I don’t mean 50s cold, I mean 30s cold. Almost as cold, if not colder than home. Idaho. Think about that statement. Anyway, after the initial shock, I got my sweatshirt and jeans out of my suitcase, and wore them. Wasn’t exactly expecting that, but whatever.

Going back to work, really slapped me in the face. After a few weeks of hanging out with my friends, and not working, it really sucked getting up at 5 am to go to work.

I got back in Florida on the 3rd, and I haven’t flown since I’ve been back. I’m feeling a tiny bit apathetic about it. I’m not really sure why.

I start Zlin ground school tomorrow, as well as Crew/Cockpit Resource Management. I’m excited for that, and hopefully I can get motivated again. I’m just in a rut right now. I feel like I’m on the outside looking in.

Anyway, I will try to take lots of pictures of my Zlin flights, and keep the site updated about my progress. I know a lot of prospective students look to this for a kind of ‘in the trenches’ view, and I apologize for not being around lately.
