  1. LB log - 20140604

    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 ...

    Work ends and there's no rest, as another week of class shall begin.

    I managed to condense the entire packet into a single side of a page. Granted, it resulted in some lists becoming checklists without the words attached as far as the relevance, but that much is basically assumed to be known by everyone regardless. Just the relevant items is all that is necessary.

    Songs suffered for me starting them late, and this is due as much to me wanting to get the paper done and ...

    Curfew is here. Busy trying to get work done on a master study sheet. I'm tired of repeatedly flipping through a book of a dozen pages when I can probably condense everything I need into one or two at most.

    Songs weren't too hot today.

    56.5 hours in 8 days of attendance. The minimum to move on to the next phase is 70, though there is a secondary phase which I can start sooner than that. It has a requirement of 20 hours, but because of how the school is run I can't even get a fixed time (beyond two days of the week when I'm scheduled for work) that I can earn hours in that category.

    On that subject, tomorrow is the day when I believe I'll be having The Big Talk with my manager at work. If I try to reconcile my present ...

    Only today do I come to discover that the school doesn't allow for the logging of more than ten hours in a single given day. I suppose it's just as well for me to find this out now, as the day concluded with the two lecture events which are mandatory for me to attend at least once. So there, that's done.

    A response came today from the IRS for the second batch of submissions I did, and I don't think I'll have time to so much as look at it until Saturday, as I intend to spend another ...

    Second batch of submissions is sent, complete with a response article that probably has a higher word count than what was sent to me in the first place. Let's see how that goes over.

    Haircut acquired.

    I am going to treat tomorrow as another work day so that I hopefully don't have another two hour commute to the school. Time is short.

    Songs felt really good today. Can't get through a session without at least one chart busting my balls, though. Thanks Ryu. ...

    Finally reached the end of necessary revisions. I'm grateful to see that most of my issues for which I have some contention and argument to make are basically contained to one of the test scenarios. Without looking back at this moment of writing to confirm otherwise, I think there might be a case where I made some substitutions in other scenarios that were sustained.

    I probably could squeeze in the act of resubmitting everything right now, but I think instead it would be better for ...

    The response to the IRS receipt of the 1120 test submissions can finally go forward, and it remains to be a very painful process. I'm glad that there are indeed some errors which are actually my fault or omission rather than it all being the case otherwise. Otherwise, here, refers to the IRS telling me that I have a value wrong which would result in the return being rejected if the information which they want and mirrors the test scenario document was what I would have actually supplied. I do not ...
