Good for me because I've been so busy that I have until tomorrow to pay my rent.
Note to Captain Kirk: Please stop trying to contact me. I don't care how great everything is, I dont need to know. The only crazy person I would ever talk to is the crazy professor. I think Im supposed to meet up with him in 2014.

My One Year Anniversary!
Hey can you believe that I have been in Arizona for a year now? I can't! It seems like I just got here. Well, I'm not sure how much longer I'm going to be here because I am on a full on attack to get either a) a management position or b) a full time position so I can have a better chance at getting a management position.
I recently spent a whole Saturday (which is one of my days off) "self-studying" the "sliding clear log" and "planet station" among other things. I am also self studying some "tortes" (which I like to pronouce 'tort-eez') that my manager gave me some copies of. I am wondering still how I will fit studying for the GMAT into my curiously busy schedule. You see, at Fedex anyways, when you are a part time worker you can work full time hours. Ive heard that when you are a full-timer, you sign your life away... well, at the minimum you work many, many hours.
Another problem at Fedex is that the better you are, the more work you get slammed with. I turned out to be a pretty darned good truck driver, and thus I am scheduled to do routes in places I've never even heard of or are not even on our maps! Just last week, I had to go to a place that was out of our map drawing jurisdiction, so I just made a really good guess and I found it, on time, and made super service that day, my dispatcher was amazed (as was I... I didn't even know I could drive/navigate like that). I'd upload my planet station map, but Im not sure if that is supposed to be secret Fedex information so I guess you will have to take my word that it was a crazy day. The next stop after that was not as successful at first because I was going the right way, so I thought, and ended up on a skinny dirt road that finally ended in circle surrounded by cacti. It is quite an experience to go "off-roading" in a tractor-trailer because if you suck, fear can easily land you in a ditch. And then you will get in trouble for being an idiot.
The only present conflict I have is that I really want to participate in the Truck Driving Championships, but can't if I get a management position first. I know getting a management position may be more important, but the TDC seemed really fun. I went last year and I liked it. All I had to do to qualify was not hit anything/anyone until I need to register (this year). I haven't! Well, I guess I will see what happens. In the meantime you can check this out.
I guess I should go to bed and ponder my life some more.
