There has just been too much going on in my life. Things are busy. I’ve got the podcast mostly recorded, just a couple of fillers left to do. I haven’t even started a video. So the podcast and the video will be delayed until next week. I also think that I may have been to optimistic about getting one of each done every week. I may have to rethink that schedule.

I finished my finals for the semester. I didn’t do as well as I hoped, but I did better than I expected given the content of the tests… There was a lot there that didn’t get covered in the class.

72/80 (90%) HVA 276 Adv Air Cond Refrig & Heating
37/45 (82%) HVA 250 Basic Boiler Operation

So with those two classes out of the way I can concentrate on getting some other things done for the website, for work, and around the house. A week without school is going to be nice.

Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year’s eve, and that the new year is treating you well. I’m back from my vacation. We went down to Florida and visited my mother and sister for Christmas, celebrated the New Year in West Virginia, and made it back in time for work on the 2nd. It was a nice trip, and despite the length, it didn’t feel long enough. But then it never does.

So, back to real life.

The new semester started for me on the 7th. Just two classes this semester and each is just a single night… it’s like I’m not even in school. I’m so used to being in class four nights a week that this lighter schedule is a welcome break. The added bonus is that both classes start at 6:00 PM, which means I’ve got time between work and class to take a breath and maybe grab a sandwich. These are my last two HVAC courses and I’m really liking the way this is playing out.

In other news, I watched Ready Player One last night. I thought it was entertaining enough, but I still am not interested enough to read the book. It was one of those movies that I enjoyed, but will forget pretty quickly.
