Oh poor livejournal, how I neglect you. I really don't mean to do these things, It just seems to happen. Either I lack time, or the ability to write words.
Work is work. Did the first two shows at Carlisle, now kinda done. On a furlough for lack of a better term. We arent really making money due to show turnouts and due to weather. So i don't know if I am working any more. Just gonna try and pick up some odd and end local gigs for a couple bucks, or maybe try and sell of more stuff.
College is consuming my life. I have 18 days of class left until I graduate. @____@ I have not decided if this is a good thing or a bad thing. Classes are going well. I finished Advanced Aircraft Maintenance: I wound up repairing a bunch of fiberglass parts to a homebuilt airplane, and repainting the landing gear covers, engine cowling, and wings. Looks tits. I'll take some photos and upload them later. Also completed "Composite Structures" This was one of my favorite classes. We learned ll about composite design and repair, and actually made two parts. The first was a dry weave of Carbon Fiber and Kevlar that we had to put resin in ourselves, the second was a Carbon Graphite and Fiberglass Prepreg setup. Cooking them in a vacuum oven to cure them. Then we made repairs to both. It was a very informative class, and I wouldn't mind getting into that kind of work. Now I'm in Hydraulics and Environmental systems, and then welding... Ugh. Too close.
June 14th I go for Orals / Practicals for my Airframe license. So nervous. wsoifghsknkdhaspjhj!*(@$ ugggggggggh.
On the job front, starting to have things come around. I interview with Air Wisconsin on June 13th, and I had an interview with AvCraft Friday. I want the AvCraft job. I wouldnt mind moving to Myrtle Beach. haha. I have some interest from Sikorsky, but for a job I'm less than interested in, and waiting to see if Air Methods (Medivac Company) are interested as well.
I've also had some really cute boi up in New York win my heart over.. heeeee. He was here for the weekend and it was just awesome.
Racing has been going well. It's my outlet. I put my helmet on, and strap in, and I'm just free while I'm out on course. Burned up all the Hoosier tires I had, switching over to BF Goodrich G-force R1's. I mean, I got my money out of the Hoosiers, 3 test and Tunes, and 9 events. Lets see what new tires do. Here's a shot of her at speed during the "Fast Track for a Cure: Race to Cure Huntington's Disease" last weekend. Just call me "Black Stig"
Phoenix Got new Stainless steel brake lines, Hawk HPS Pads, ATE Type 200 Fluid, oh, and some sexy new wheels for the street. Sparco 17" Wheels, with Hankook Ventus V12's on them.. Murr.
Yea, so thats it for now. More before I graduate, really.
