Here we are, it’s already December. It seems like just yesterday I was all jazzed about starting a build project, a new weight loss program, and going back to school.
Let’s get the ugly out of the way first. The build project was basically abandoned. I had only built two bulkheads and had not spent that much money, so it wasn’t a painful decision just a pragmatic one. The airplane would not really meat my needs in the long run, so it wasn’t a good choice in the first place.
Going back to school was a bit more interesting. My initial plan was to work towards an aeronautical engineering degree. After some thought and talking with some other people it seemed wiser to work on a more practical program like getting my FAA Airframe & Powerplant certificates.
I signed up for the Spring semester at San Jose City College and began working on my general education requirements. In the Fall I signed up at Gavilan College in the AMT (Aviation Maintenance Technology) program and work on my A&P.
One of my instructors and a fellow student are electrical engineers and they both confirmed that going after the engineering degree, while interesting, wouldn’t really help me with my plans.
My first term is just about over now and things are going well and I’m looking forward to next term. Admittedly, at the moment I am looking forward to winter break a little more.
Till next time,
