So it's been awhile faithful followers and mom....

To sum up the last few years of my life I think a simple "eh" would do. Nothing cool has really happened. I mean I guess I got my private pilot's license (only a lifelong dream)and last year I worked my butt off to earn an instrument rating but beyond that I have just been sitting here in my chair (even though the chair has changed) thinking about things. And by things I mean a thing.

Anyway being here at central is great and I've loved most of the time. I mean when in our lives are we allowed to be irresponsible and do whatever we want? High school??? I think not, high school was where we were supposed to focus and put all of our effort and attention into our scholarly activities. Oh and I was just guessing college is where people do that because I haven't yet. I just did spell check btw and only three words were spelled wrong. I find that amazing because if you were to look at a homework I was supposed to type up you would find it absolutely rife with spelling errors.

So at this point I'm not quite sure what to do. I mean I could start throwing huge words around to make it seem like your reading a woody allen movie (I've only seen one) and make it funnier. But I don't roll like that, I roll like this; why do they even waste the materials involved with putting the "C" and blue label on a shower faucet telling us which side is cold?!?!?! Has anyone ever used that? I mean really who in their right mind would even want the water coming out of their shower faucet to be cold? OK, I know some of you out there are going to be like "Well incredibly funny and handsome blog writer, after I work out nothing feels better than a cold shower." To them I would say, "I've never worked out so I have no idea what your talking about." But seriously people, that cold part of the shower faucet is dumb and a waste of blue things. Isn't the color blue like a really hard one to make? I think I saw something on the history channel once about how blue was a tough color to make in ancient Egypt because how the ancient Egyptians did everything is how I base my everyday values in terms of what is easy to do and what is not easy to do.

I worked with this crazy sailor over the summer at my job at a boat store and it just dawned on me that writing what he told me here would have literally make me a hundred thousandair but oh well, I can't remember most of what he said. Maybe I'll try to think of some of the things he said to put on here for next time. So there owen, dont delete this from your favorites just yet.

Sorry about not making that many posts. Don't worry, it's not because I'm busy, I'm just super lazy. Also, I broke my arm the other day and i was going to have this big long-winded post on the year 2009 and how it was the greatest and worst year of my life. So yeah, once I get my right arm/hand back in a few weeks, that post will be up. Along with a few other things...so yeah look forward to that!

Because there were no big parties tonight, I am here sitting in my dorm room on a Friday. Yea, this is totally out of the ordinary...me just sitting here...doing nothing.

But anyway I was flipping through the channels and noticed that the MTVU Woody awards are on. Now I don't know why a Woody is called a Woody award but I am about to explain the reasoning behind my ignorance. I'm pretty sure the only reason there is an MTVU awards show is to visually and musically tell me how not cool I am. to give these awards to bands I've never heard of just shows me how out of touch I am with apparently my peers. I mean we were all the same in high school but now like they all wear flannel and have scraggly beards and are featured in Levi's commercials and listen to bands I've never ever heard of. I mean like where do these bands become popular? Word of mouth? I honestly have no idea.

Like what colleges do they even poll for these things? Obviously not Central Washington University. It's probably like all those liberal arts colleges back in the north east. Not like the good ones like Princeton or stuff but those second tier types. Or maybe just all those super cool kids that don't go to college and live in their parents basement and don't have a job and tell YOU how pathetic YOU are for wanting to be friends still...

I haven't posted in a little while and I'm not sure how much I will be in the next couple of days. School is starting to wind down because the end of the quarter in fast approaching and things are going to become very hectic around here. I really don't have much to say except Mike Rowe should host the Oscars. That guy would be perfect.

Well it's about time that I post again. I'm actually just trying to kill some time between finishing my homework and taking a shower before bed. I might have all this energy because I just ate a couple Reese's peanut butter cups or because I've just been in an overall state of nervousness because of college life...among other things. But school has been going really well and flying has been going very nicely. Both my instructor and I have seen steady improvement over these last couple of flights. We're suppose to solo before winter break and that's a little more than a month away...

SO some of you who read this regularly may be wondering what my roommates are like seeing as I've had over a month to get to know them. Well to tell you the truth I really don't know. The most I ever say to them is "Hey" or "Hey man" or "Sup" or "Sup dude." Little more than that is seldom spoken. But so far as I can tell, two of them leave pretty much every weekend and the one other guy like stays at his girlfriends house a lot of them time. So there have been a couple of weekends where I have had the whole dorm to myself. Not like I do anything with it. But yea, I fly tomorrow at 7 a.m. so I guess I better start winding down. I'll post up again soon.

I'm not really sure what to write in this post but I am mainly using it as an excuse to not study for my aircraft systems test...haha.

I guess I'll talk about flying. It's awesome. The one thing I am disappointed about is that I'm not really able to look out of the plane as much as I would like. To like look at how high above the ground we are or what types of building and such we are flying over. They're mostly farm houses but it's still cool looking at them from the air.

My flight training is going well and I look forward to every flight. But I'd be lying if I didn't say I had a few butterflies every time I contort myself to fit into the C-152 transport. That's funny because the word "transport" makes it seem like its a big plane when in fact it is apparently the second smallest primary training aircraft in the United States. They are really good airplanes to learn to fly in except it being a high wing, it's kind of hard to judge turns correctly to the left which is the traffic pattern we normally fly.

Today we did seven touch and goes and the workload is definitely starting to be transferred from my instructor to me. I have to take care of all the checklists and radio calls in addition to flying the aircraft correctly and safely. But I am getting them down and I notice definite improvement in my ability to fly and multi-task from flight to flight. Well that's all for tonight folks!
