I'm commuting on Delta Flight 1038 from SAN to ATL trying to get to my last two day trip of the month. September concludes with my schedule being completed @ 89% on-time arrivals and departures and the awesome fact that I was able to break the 100 hour credit mark! The Captain was an awesome character to fly with as we always went out and enjoyed the town. We always had some lunch or dinner with great conversation and even visited some random places like the mall in downtown Stamford, Connecticut or Orange Country Choppers in Newburgh, New York. It was one of the best months that I have had here at ASA.
The paycheck on the 15th of October is something that I'm really looking forward to! I've been working hard with the commute and all so hopefully it will it will pay off in one way or the other! :) You have to realize that I usually get credited about 70-80 hours a month and with the extra ~20 hours, it's going to boost my pay about a third of my usual. I'm young right so I should be trying to do this each month, but it just really depends if you could hack it. Exhaustion is something that I hate feeling, but when you fly with a good crew and have good trips, it only adds to the pleasure.
Being back home in San Diego more and more helps out in the "being grounded" feeling department but with the split of our crashpad in February, finding another place in Atlanta is up in the air. I'll have more on the living situation later but being with friends during the weekend in San Diego helps in recuperating the lost time.
With the impending launch of a new Macbook Pro, rumored to be announced on the 14th, my paycheck is going to be accounted for. I've been waiting for almost 7 years now and am in bad shape with my Titanium Powerbook 667. (I've been mainly using my IBM T43p on trips though so it hasn't been that bad)
