I’ve been terrible about keeping up on here. I promise I want to! The downside to having two jobs and working a lot to save up for flight training means very little personal time and sleep becomes very important! It’s been a bit of a whirlwind the past week too. The airline I work for has been acquired by another (I’ll let you put it together) and now the question is – will I have a job? If I do have a job, we’ll have to move again and most likely take a pay cut (COL though does matter so it may not actually be a pay cut). Lots of things are uncertain now and no one knows the answer, so we just have to sit and wait for the information.
Ever since this news came out there’s been a LOT of speculation. I’ve stopped reading all the articles that people in my department keep sending with a new rumor every day. It’s just not worth it for me to worry. Again, just a lot of siting and waiting for information, ugh.
Back to flying, I’ve been desperately trying to find the time to study for my instrument written. It’s been difficult: 1. to find the time when I’m not working or exhausted 2. to really get passionate about it to want to study. Possibly starting to fly IFR and those practical lessons would help me get more into it, but I did want to get the written done first and then focus all my attention on flying and getting it done quickly.
What were your methods to study? Did you study and fly or do the written first?
