    Mission complete. Today marks the second time that I have passed all tests necessary to acquire a CDL. The morning routine at the DMV includes turning on the radio over the speakers within the facility, and it's tuned to the local oldies rock station. They managed to turn it on today precisely with the start of the Yes song Roundabout; it was rather surreal to notice a faint yet familiar guitar melody suddenly come over the silence. While I performed the tests within the facility lot, I was observed ...

    Tomorrow is a personal D Day for me. Let's see how it goes.

    Before leaving from the facility area for the morning's practice, I watched a person perform the skills test to see it conducted by an actual examiner. He wasn't allowed to complete the final phase before he was failed out, or at least I assume that he had failed out because he had accumulated enough points beforehand to demand that he completed the last maneuver with zero penalty points, and I saw the driver shake his head ...

    Managed to squeeze it all in. Two spins in the morning followed by a full day of work. I need to take these last few days to assuredly do the test as close to proper as possible to ensure it's all wrote when the time counts. In the meantime, this just means I have to get to bed pretty much immediately.

    Songs were good today. A shame that I had my first fail of Still My Words this time.

    Tomorrow is going to be a long day; it's 930PM and already time to shower and then get to bed.

    Song session was relatively excellent today. Had a 78% fail with Shades of Grey but I didn't leave a record behind in doing so - no big loss.

    I think I'll resume the reading of the Civil War newspaper reprints from the books that I have. I need to get into a habit of being willing to pick up a book to read it even if it's only for less than an hour or even a scant fifteen minutes.

    It's time to buy a new set of ankle weights, as I've managed to wear through the bottom of the set and have sand starting to leak everywhere, yet again. At least this pair lasted longer than a week as it did on the treadmill.

    Glad to have two spins at the practice course today.

    I did manage to get the sound functional on my machine, thanks to the "sfc" command which I never had a reason to use until now. The resultant log file that came weighed in at 2MB. There was a lot of work that needed to be done, I guess.

    Not a lot of else to note going on. No response from IRS or anything else important to do.

    Songs started out ok enough but fell apart in a hurry. Maybe I'm ...

    I was the first to arrive to the location for making another test run with the vehicle today. He was 30 minutes late for his scheduled arrival. I only managed to get one turn. It was better this time, at least. I think a few more tries should be enough to get me comfortable to pass.

    There's a page on the IRS website for corrections to test scenarios. The page I found for the Form 1120 series listed fixes for the first 3 of the 7 tests. Numbers 1 and 3 were already indicated as Good ...

    No songs yesterday because by the time I came home from a visit to the parents, it was already past 9, and I had to be up at 430 this morning to make my trip. My wife joined me. It was raining and by the time I arrived to the location the second time after purchasing an umbrella for her to have, it was already past 630 and the practice runs end at 8. I managed to get in right at 740 or so and didn't even get to practice all three phases of the test. That was that. The vehicle also is an automatic ...

    I can't let this day go by without mentioning it but I can't give too much away. Let's just say that I received an email today from someone of importance, and the written content had a sentence which contained the following words in this following order: "you was". Another mail came where I requested the earliest hypothetical day for scheduling to be done for my class, on the basis of needing to know that information to make proper accommodations for my work schedule, and all I received ...

    In six months it will be 2015.

    So about that IRS response. Recall that I submitted a second batch of test returns, as is the usual procedure for testing; if you need to correct one, they want all returns resubmitted. I finally get to opening the document and come to discover that some of the notes refer to the second submissions, and a few other reported errors were still reported with the accompanying first submission ID. This means that I now can't even as much as know where to ...

    I think I might need a new set of sunglasses in the near future, and good quality ones at that. In respect of the classes I've been taking lately, the volume of traffic found on the commute as well as it occurring in the daytime is contributing to my feeling completely fully drained by the time I get home. This is not going to be acceptable if my near future plays out as I am intending.

    Now that I have a moment, perhaps I should finally get back to the IRS 1120 testing and see what ...

    First day of observation. I was later told that the sparse population was due to it "being a Friday" which I guess means that other days were busier, but what I did see didn't leave a very favorable impression. Instructors were on the field sporadically at best, and there was only one person assigned per machine, which means that when that person wanted to assess how they were performing the various tests, they'd have to come to a complete stop, walk over to the location, and see the result. ...

    My wife's graphics card decided to die today. Looks like something of a minor birthday present for her has come early. The extra stop on the way home from school cost me $240 and an extra hour of commute time. I bought a bag of Skittles for something to nibble in the middle of the expected solid traffic, which was very much there, and I think doing that right before dinner seems to be what is agitating me now. That or just the course of the day. I don't know.

    Songs sucked. I ran ...

    Perhaps nothing less than 14 hours of sleep is what I did need today.

    Today's goose chase led me to a location about 15 miles away just so that I can get the required drug screening and physical. It was the fifth location that I had visited on the day. The first one, where I had previously gone for the requirements of my retail job, no longer provides the service. The next two had their doctors who perform the service out for the day. The fourth conducted the drug screening, but not ...

    The instructor brews the coffee with such strength that I think it has affected me throughout the rest of the day and up to the point that I'm writing this now. Before dinner I felt lightheaded, and I still feel phased out now. I determined that I will stay home tomorrow in order to get some things done which I can or need to do around here, some of which needs to be done before I can progress further in the class. I think I just may need a long night's sleep.

    No heart for playing ...
