One week closer to starting, and i'm pretty much ready to go (I hope). I've been completing checklists, getting all my flight gear and all that good stuff. Trying to get cable set up...what a pain in the ass. I decided to go with Time Warner (whom i've heard is not so good in Texas) and the tech who came out to install the stuff was from some other company that Time Warner contracted out...he didn't have a clue what was going on. It's like they gave him a box and said install this at this address, and no questions were asked. Well, I ordered an HD DVR and he came out with a regular DVR; he said they didn't have any of the HD ones, whatever. I went with regular cable and when the guy comes back out a few days later to install the stuff, the box that he brings in says "HDDVR" on the front...WTF!! I now hate Time Warner.
In other news, a buddy of mine in my class just got bumped for something that I consider stupid. The Air Force doesn't agree with me, and I understand where they are coming from, but i'm still bummed (and so is he). I have a mask fitting on monday, and then it's down to the wire! I'm still excited to be in pilot training (almost)!
