    My trainer was not having a good day today. Right before coming into the yard at the start of my shift he had a deer collision (which he managed to keep from being head on so at least it didn't damage the truck or cause him injury). After we left, we had to return to the hub right away because the bag with the dealership keys was left behind. After we hit our third stop, which is the recipient of the majority of the truck's load, we got a call that they had received some items which belong to other ...

    Something seemed strange about the end of work today. His demeanor seemed different somehow, as if he was annoyed. I'm not exactly sure what problem there would have been, though. I drove the entire day and didn't have much of any real issue at all (a few minor dumb things but nothing that caused damage or wasted time). I feel like I have a decent handle on the job in its entirety. Regardless, yesterday is gone and today's a new day of work.

    I was able to get home earlier than usual ...

    Someone besides me wrote a blog post today! http://www.the-nextlevel.com/tnl/ent...-Day-Trip-2014 . Make sure to give it a peek.

    I'm a few pages into Extraordinary Popular Delusions and I'm already enjoying the style and tone. The edition that I have is rather large but I think I might be able to turn it over in a few weeks with a standard hour or two of reading per day.

    Work went out really late today but ended at about the same time. We were able to make good ...

    The Japanese School, by Benjamin Duke.

    This was a struggle to get to the end, mostly because the final three sections are essentially one massive epilogue where the well established points stated earlier in the book are repeated yet again and a few more times in closing. It doesn't help matters that the book was written in 1986, which is significant for the subject matter and how so much has changed from then until now. I can only imagine that if this theme was revisited for writing ...

    We made it to the party. The time of night was between rain, so the few remaining people were inside in one small kitchen which didn't have enough chairs to seat all of us. My wife elected to stand the entire time we were there. The house had no air conditioning and lack of sunlight and the cross breeze through the windows wasn't enough to keep the room from feeling hot and humid. There was talk of things that happened at the store, and being removed from it all was a sentiment that my wife and ...

    Today was a detour from the normal training route, as the situation required a different route to be fulfilled but, long story short, the driver who normally had the route couldn't drive it today. So I did dutifully depart with the straight truck and went about doing his route instead. It was a nice change of pace, though I didn't have my morning coffee and I definitely suffered for it.

    I wanted to write more here but I'm up against the clock.

    Songs definitely feel ...

    I had assumed that I would have been able to report to the jury duty summons late and told to join in the wait, but instead I managed to get my name punted down the road for it to be available to be called upon in the future. The clerk told me that I would have been able to call in to explain my situation and not necessarily have to physically report, but I have a feeling that they get people constantly calling in to try to talk their way out of the summon. I felt better doing this in person and ...

    I misspoke yesterday - the jury duty summons is for this Thursday the 10th.

    Job felt much better today than previously. I just might be able to get the hang of this.

    I kept meaning to do so before but now I'm looking over 2ch in earnest to see about actually reading Japanese content that comes directly from people and isn't printed material of some kind. Sometimes I feel like I get it, other times I don't. For instance, I don't seem to ever recall reading 害人 ...

    First day on the road and I'm still bad. The guy makes it look as natural as breathing. One gear shift to another comes like smooth creamy butter.

    My mother in law had a medical procedure to do which would leave her unable to use a car for the rest of the day, so we made arrangments for me to pick her and my wife home after my shift. I wouldn't be home until 1PM. I fell into bed in a heap.

    Tomorrow morning I'll need to see what happens when I report to jury duty roll ...

    This has been a rather annoying past few days.

    Yesterday I was compelled to do a few thinsg which led to me never getting to exercise until early this morning, and while playing Dodonpachi in the process I found myself to be very unfocused. I knew that if I were to play songs at that point, it would have been a fruitless effort so I resolved to simply try to read a book instead. Even after removing myself from the computer here and going upstairs to do it I simply couldn't find a ...

    In bed at 300PM and up now at 930PM. As opposed to writing this at the end of my day, this comes as it starts.

    There's still a lot of individual little questions to be answered about how I'll go about doing everything, such as home meals and time to do routine things like exercise and songs.

    This morning's fun event was helping my sister perform a moving operation. Their neighbor had a children's playground set that they were willing to give away rather than throw out. ...

    The next week starts this coming Tuesday at 2:00 AM.

    Everything will now be flipped around, and I'll be back to sleeping in the day as I did years ago before. I think I'm ready.

    The work environment there is pretty laid back overall, and I believe that as long as I keep a level head I'll be able to make myself become a useful driver with a minimal amount of training. I just need to be patient and attentive, and both of these things I can do.

    One of the ...

    Up against the clock. Today was better than yesterday - what a difference halving the commute time makes.

    I should have more time to talk tomorrow.

    Songs could have been worse.

    This is a hell of a way to lead off the second half.

    The storm weather that came through last night did indeed inflict some respectable damage all throughout the area. My new commute takes me twenty miles out, and throughout the entire trip there were random spots of uprooted trees, some of which landed on power lines or houses. There were many stoplights that were operating on flashing red only. The trip to and from work was painful today. Getting food for lunch was an ordeal as ...

    At the moment that I'm writing this, the website for the Fukuchiyama radio station stream that I listen to is inaccessible. Their entire website was down when I looked earlier. Therefore I had to resort to Youtube to have something to listen to while I banged my head against the Diablo 3 wall, and I figured to find something that I haven't heard from in a while - Infected Mushroom. I had no idea they were out of Israel.

    While I find the swift passage of time that I'm doing this to ...
