I'm going to do it!

I'm going do dive right in (pun intended) to underwater welding. I found the school I want. I even got a call from them today. There is just some stuff to fill out to see if they will even take me. If all goes well I plan on getting my Associate of Science degree. Seeing that they only have classes twice a week, I'll be able to work part time. Not any of this working 47 hour weeks and trying to take a night class bull shit. It works out even better, because I was starting to look for a new part-time job so I could start taking classes during the day. Now I don't have to do that...just yet.

So right now I'm thinking sometime around March or April I'll end up moving down to LA. That's only 400-500 miles ('m guessing), no biggie :P I should have my car paid for by then. Then I'd just have to worry about rent and stuff. This might just work out just fine.

I think sometime in February I'm going to take a drive down and check out the school. I'm thinking on a three day weekend and take a day off...weeeee four day weekend!

So I just gotta tell my would be roomie, that unless she plans on moving to LA (yeah, I really don't think so). I don't think we're going to be able to be roomies.

It has been almost 2 years that I have been out of the Air Force, it's time for a change...

You were in the Air Force?? For how long and what did you do? Sorry for all the questions...

Anyways, Underwater welding is very interesting to me...I think its awesome that you want to learn how to do that.

Congratulations on a new direction in life! I wish you the best. But I have to admit...underwater welding...I never even knew there was such a thing. It makes sense, now that you say it...but just not something I ever thought of.

Dirk_Star said...

Knock, knock. Anybody home?

Chucky said...

nope

Dirk_Star said...

M-m-m-m-m... Pie.

Yes, we always have pie and milk on hand.

When my wife and I got married we had everyone bring their favorite pie instead of having a wedding cake.

Everyone shared and it was very cool...

Well good luck with your new adventure....I think it is a great idea to go scoop it out first....oh and the laundry thing...don't get me started...

Ranting said...

Good luck!

Echo said...

Chucky said...

nope. A friend of mine since my good ol' college days.

We were going to get an apartment togerher in town. But that's not going to work out if I'm in LA.
