Great things have been happening lately and I am very excited! First off, I have finished ALL my holiday/birthday shopping as of today. The only one on the list that is left is ME... although I have already treated myself to some new wool shirts, I am thinking about one last thing for myself. Its a pretty pastel pearl bracelet I saw in a catalogue. I will continue to think about it.
Next in news is that I FINALLY sent ,y VAIO out for repair. I sent it via Fedex ina special computer box. Sony hasn't called me with the verdict yet, but when they do, I will definately ask them to use my shipping account for the return trip home. I want overnight delivery. I don't want my precious VIAO in a shipping can longer than necessary.
And now for the even more stupendous news::::: I started driving the tractor trailors!! YIPPEE!!! I started my training last week. I learned how to drive the clutch on a straight truck first then I moved on to "the big dog" as they call it in my school. I'm pretty good too! I was pleasently surprised. I hope I can get my road test by the end of this year so I can get my reimbursement from my job. Then I am off to a better job! YAYYY!!!!
But that is about all the crazy news I have. Not much else has been going on except for work and shopping. I guess that is a good thing. The only thing I think about is that this month (or is it technically next month?) marks the one year away from school mark and boy am I ever so happy school is a thing of the past. Well, stupid school anyway. I think its hilarious that my "alma mater" solicits me to donate money to their alumni society. HA! They are barking up the wrong tree. My mother suggested I send them a leftover 500 peso note from our last trip to Mexico. LOLLOLOL!!!!!!
Speaking of Mexico, once my birthday rolls by, I will begin to save up for my two vacations I have coming up. I am taking one trip to Mexico (most likely Mexico City... again... in the ghost hotel) and the other to a sunny destination. I am thinking cruise. However, I will settle for a trip to the Carribean. If not, maybe I will go back to San Diego or something. But I am definately going to Mexico.
After I get my new job as a "Ramp Transport Driver" (i.e., tractor-trailor driver for Fedex) I will begin my quest for grad school. Depending on where I land my first tractor job, I may consider school around that area, but I am not limiting myself to that. After 18 months, I would be able to transfer anywherehiring again. There are a lot of options. But that is the general, overall, big plan. After I get my license and get my new position, I will be studying for the GMAT and taking it sometime next year. I will then use that preliminary score to judge what schools I can get into and then start a tour of potential schools culminating into a great choice (most likely a private school) which will have elements of: me being able to keep my job, living in a great place, fabulous school environment, and fabulous school curriculum. The curriculum may not be in logistics, but I will settle for operations if it seems interesting enough or I am able to do it.
So now I must eat some leftover turkey. Then go to work. Oh joys!!

Must Fix VIAO
Its been almost two months since my VAIO went crazy and Ive not fixed it yet. I think I need to do this fixing business on Monday. I just can't stand this computer downstairs.
So in the meantime, I went to Niagara Falls, had some fun, bought some souveniers and played some slots (on sacred Seneca land btw). I wish I could post up some of the footage, but like I said before, my VAIO is still broken. But I got a lot of good footage just so you know.
So what's new for me? Hm, not much. No good jobs have come up lately, but I did figure out how to do the tuition reimbursement at my job. So finally I can go and get my CDL-A and get my money back! Now all I have to do is figure out how to get my reimbursement for my CDL-C and we're in business. I am going to see my manager this week about the newest reimbursement and see what the progress is on the old reimbursement. I have a feeling I will have to ask the senior manager about getting my money cuz I need to fix my computer!!!! Dang it!!!
There is a full time shuttle position opening up in Ronkonkoma. I think I will put in for it. Why the hell not you know? I doubt I'll get it but whatever. I have nothing else going for me and when peak comes, I cant go anywhere anyway until January.
I am getting bummed about not having a real job (i.e., a job with a nice title. Shuttle Driver/CDL hardly makes the cut). I want to move away already but I don't think it's going to happen just yet. Ugh! There has to be a job coming up soon! Preferably in a different area, har har.
Bah, Im just rambling now. See you in a month, hehe.
