indeed! think I might take a welding class this summer at the community college. Get certified and learn to weld like a boss plus have to walk past the gym every day means no excuses not to keep working out come summer.

ya i wish i had the time and money for something like that. i feel like if i do anything BUT study EE my dad will come out of nowhere and bitch me out all the time... which is odd cause he BOUGHT me a welder... that man sends some up messages.

also first day at work recap in 3...2...1...

guy i work with is cool, basically feels overworked because he's the only one in the lab... so he wants me to work more hours. he's glad i'm a hard worker and that i don't mind getting dirty (and actually enjoy the work tedious as it may be) so that's good... i'm gonna work 5-4's and then he's gonna start bitching at management to let me work more like asap. he basically wants us to be working together in the lab instead of having me be under him... so i'd be running my own tests and managing equipment, etc. with minimal guidance from him.

TL;DR
not gonna be a glamorous job but it makes time go by and my boss wants me to work more (if he can get approval)

also alternator for wilhelm is in... only has a single belt pulley on it, which makes me a little peeved cause i specifically asked for an alternator built up for an '85 300D (aka dual pulleys smaller diameter because of diesel's lower redline, etc) so now i'm wondering if the thing will actually develop the advertised 120A... but finding an ammeter that big will be tricky. if it stops my "omg wilhelm won't start" problems i'll be happy enough. provided fit and finish is as factory as they claim.

ok.lol

the st will hopefully be gone soon, once i find out how much a new focus will cost me after me discount :).

im going to get sonic blue in hatchback SE, moonroof and sports package which includes rear disk brakes :). i get the D plan which i believe is $1800 off cost of focus and i might beable to get something more off going through my dealership, even though they sell lincoln there is a ford hines park somewhere?
