I Can Do IT; I Must Do it

There's nothing revealing about my posts regarding the training for the position that I have been working on for the past 14 months  or so. This note, like any other ones that I have posted so far so far in the past 15 years and few months, are for my own. If someone enjoys reading them, and at times gains information, which might happen, good. If they don't, they don't have to read.  Having said that, we will have our mid-term examinations next week: Tue. and Wed. We have been working to be ready for them in the past 7 weeks . I'm not very confident but what I know is I can pass them, both because I know my areas of weaknesses and I have time to study for them. I need to manage my time for the studies, and as well, get the necessary material. Then during the practical examination, which will come first, I will have to make sure that I take my time, pay attention to detail and focus.  We had a chance to practice our written test and I didn't do so well (I g

A Disastrous and Disappointing Start!

I woke up by a noise early this morning. Not that I had a good sleep the night but when I looked at the clock, the face was blank. I immediately realized that we had a power outage.

I intend to have a productive time by studying, doing laundry and exercising.  Today we had an hour of fitness which was turned out to a 40 min. light exercise session by the lazy assess who do nothing but laughing at everything they can. The thing about these guys is that many of them are in their late 20's and still act like teenagers! I guess some haul their stupidity all the way to their grave! A good example of these guys this fella whom his ethnicity is not going to be revealed here because I then would be accused of racism. A total clown. He's 29 and he thinks by telling stupid jokes and laughing hard at almost anything could become popular! Wearing backward hats and shorts with no shoe or socks and beard, make him looks like a total jerk
