Well thatâ€™s yet another week been and gone. Itâ€™s been pretty much the same as the rest although we had our timetable changed, so we now get Navigation Aids last thing on a Thursday â€“ there goes one of my afternoons off. We also had a lecturer change for Navigation Aids so hopefully now Iâ€™ll start to pick up what there trying to explain to us, which so far has been about co-efficientâ€™s B, C & D that you use to correct deviation in a magnetic compass.
I have finally got the hang of chart work, although I seem to be consistently out by a mile or two when it comes to writing the answers â€“ either I canâ€™t read the Latitude and Longitude off the side of the chart properly or I canâ€™t measure the right distance!
On Saturday a group of us went paintballing nearby which was brilliant fun. I only got shot twice â€“ although I got hit plenty of times that didnâ€™t count.
Next weekend Iâ€™m off to St Malo in France for the day â€“ to pass the time with some people from college, and Iâ€™m off to the US Embassy on the 1st of December to attend my interview for my visa application.
Just in case youâ€™re reading this Kathryn, Happy Birthday for Friday.
