I am extremely happy! NOW I can finally get started on a career! The only problem is that I will not get reimbursed until I am actually offered a trailor position at Fedex. Hopefully, I will get one soon because I am out a couple thousand dollars!! This also means that I will have to use tuition reimbursement money from the 2007 year so that means that I cant get any tuition money towards my MBA schooling until 2008. This may not be so bad in that I may have to first go to a crappy place to drive then transfer to another station near a school I like. We'll see. Right now, my main focus is getting a job. Tomorrow I will go to the DMV to take my last endorsement test, then go back again next week to officially get my license. Some driver dude from JFK Informed me that there will be some open position soon, so I must keep an eye out for that.
I STILL cant believe I passed! Holy Cow!
GO me! GO ME!!
Today I have a long day at work, so I better eat something and get ready to go.
So can I now officially say "Keep on truckin'!" ??

HONK If You're Nervous!
It's 2:21am and although my bedtime is not usually 'till 3:30am, I don't foresee sleep in the near future. I AM SO FREAKIN' NERVOUS/ANXIOUS/EXCITED about what Lou called my "Mack Truck Driving Test." OMG the truck has a little mack dog on the hood!! (Not that one in the link, silly, this one is more like it)
I went over my pre-trip and air-brake test in my brain before.
My test is on Long Island. Probably right near where I used to work.
I definitely don't want to stall, though I made every conscious effort not to stall (well, not more than twice so I don't fail).
Hills (upgrades) kill me. I go into overdrive in my head and focus all my energy to make sure I DO NOT ROLL BACK. I get exhausted after a hill.
Though I have only bumped the curb once, I definitely don't want to on the road test. When I park I switch on the "PARKING PROGRAM" and follow through methododically. (is that a word?)
Speaking of words, I bought a 2007 Scrabble calendar filled with 365 scrabble puzzles. I've done all the puzzles through February 4th. With the help of the answer key of course, har har. I like Scrabble, but I wish I was "more better" in vocabulary. I need to brush up on, er, correction, build up, my vocabulary if I want to do well on the GMAT.
UNLAME is not an acceptable Scrabble word, but UNLICKED is. How?? How does one UNLICK something?? Oh lord, I need to keep playing Scrabble.
I think Lou's Pecan Pie made my skin itchy. Either that or I am more nervous than I think.
I have to "wake up" at 0800. 8AM People!! It's almost 3! I have no idea what to eat in the morning. I should eat a quesedilla. Not sure if that will work with coffee. I always feel like crap when I have to wake up so early. I am not a morning person. Don't plan on becoming one either unless it means salaried position at something cool.
Im hoping I pass because those jobs at JFK are coming soon. I NEED THIS. ARGGHHHHH!!!
Ive "thunk" myself to sleep! Im going to bed. Goodnite!!
Bonne chance, mucho lucko, bueno suerte, yadda yadda, all that jazz.
Tomorrow could quite possibly be the best day of my life. I should shut up. I dont want to jinx myself or something equally annoying.
Hey it's Christmas Day and I am very excited because my road test is tomorrow!! I hope I pass. Then I can get a nice new job! Whee!
My birthday also passed and I got some great things! I got a cake from a few friends at my job (pineapple filling! Yum!) I got a perfume kit and a swanky pair of earrings that perfectly match this English ruby necklace replica I got from the museum. For christmas I got more perfume, chocolates, filet mignon, and a hat. Im still waiting on some stuff, so I will see what I get later.
Other than that, not much else is going on. I am definately excited about the road test. A coworker informed that a couple of truckers were retiring and thus two poitions would be opening up very soon. I would be so happy if I was able to stay here and work out of JFK because then I can move to Long Island and have a lot of schools to choose from. But then again, my rank is low so if someone else puts in for it and has a higher number, they may be considered. However, this guy was telling me that if ten people ahead of you have permits, but you have the license, they will take you over all of them. Im keeping my fingers crossed!!!! I want to finish this license this year so I can use the tuition money next year in case I am ready to start school next fall. I doubt I will be ready, but maybe I will be insipred or score good on the GMAT.
All this means that next year will be awesome! All my dreams will have come true finally - no more school, a great job, me finally moving out (I HOPE!!!) and starting on my way to a great career and/or grad school experience and new USEFUL degree. I cant wait. :)
So I hope everyone out there has a great holiday and new year, and I will see you soon, hopefully with some good news and a new license!
P.S.: I only have one more endorsement test to take (combination vehicles) and I will have ALL endorsements on my license!!! WHEEE!!!

Hey Laa, Hey Laa, My VAIO's Back!!!
Finally! My VAIO Has been fixed and I am officially online and ready for action!
I have a LOT of catching up to do, especially on that webpage of mine. I really need to change it around. It's been basically the same for years now. I wonder what I should do.
Well, in any case, I am very excited to tell you that my ROAD TEST for my CDL-A is December 26! Hurrah!!!! I hope I pass because I want to get a new job ASAP. I was sorta offered a position at my current station, but I think it would pay less. I guess I will see how it goes, but as of now, I am going foward with my trucking. I should have put in for a full time gig in New Orleans, but those always pop up. That and Atlanta. I would prefer Tennessee, but I don't think my ranking is high enough yet.
Other than that, I dont have much else going on. I have to wrap up my change and deposit it, if that counts as something, lol. I also have to get new eyeglasses tomorrow. Monday I go to the dentist.
Oh yeah, I think one of my friends forgot my birthday - AHEM. I guess I will send a friendly reminder when I send the Christmas gift.
Well, I like my refurbished VAIO. Now Im going to play tetris fusion.

BRRRR!!!! Its cold in here living room!!!
Welcome to December! This month, I turn 26 and start on my quest for the "good job."
This month already started with a bang. Make that a bang to my bank accounts. I spent so much money on myself this month that after paying off all my bills, I will have a record low checking account since 2003. Of course that is just my checking account. Im not including my savings which looks ok to me. Har har. ANYWAY, I am very excited about this month because of many things:
First and foremost is my birthday. I have bought/received so many great gifts that I can be happy for many months to come. Which is good because I have to be on saving mode if I want to go anywhere good for vacation. I also want to finally get started on losing some weight, so my eating out spending will decrease dramatically. I must return to cooking meals at home and buying things at the supermarket.
Ive not received all my gifts from people, but I bought myself lots of clothes and jewelry, beads to make jewelry, shoes and other crap I don't need. I know I will be receiving a cashmere sweater and Givenchy perfume set from a very special person. THANK YOU!!!!!!!! The sweater will be awesome! :) Then comes Christmas! Im excited because I got some nice gifts for my friends. I cant wait to see what they think hehehe!
Anyway, Im very excited about the CDL-A as well. I have been doing well on the truck that I think I can pass my road test on the first try. I got my pre-trip inspection down, Im almost up to par on my 4 point air-brake test, and I only have to get better clutch control. Im so EXCITED! I hope I get a job in a nice place. I wouldnt mind JFK, but that will be unlikely given my ranking. When I get my license, I have to check out b-schools again and pick some choice cities in case they pop up. I can't wait.
Not much else has been going on in the meantime. Im waiting for my vaio to come back from the service center and I will be working on getting that up and running for a while. I also hope I can continue updating my webpage soon. Ive so many new pictures I want to uplaod but CANT. I also think my webpage really needs to be revamped. I am just not sure I need all those pages you know? My life isnt as exciting as it once was. I am also not as awake for as long as I used to be. I am sleeping regularly now so that takes an extra 3-4 hours of "online time" away. Not that I am upset about it. I like sleeping like a normal human being.
Hm, thats about it for now. Besides, Im freezing. I should go to my snuggly bed.
