So, thatâ€™s another week (well 2 weeks almost) gone by. College is progressing slowly, this whole 8 hours a week is beginning to get very boring, although Iâ€™ve ended up with a cold from power boating at the weekend so at least I get to sleep lots.
Last weekend saw Fran, Helena and me zooming around the Solent in the freezing cold and rain in a power boat doing our RYA Advanced Powerboat Course. I started doing the powerboat courses last year solely for something to do at the weekends and now there all done I never intend to do any more â€“ at least in the UK, itâ€™s too cold.
On the college front all is going well, 1st assignment was handed in on Monday, only another 6 to go. The wet cargo individual one which is basically loading a tanker is now done but its not due till January. I have 2 assignments for Meteorology one is due a week on Monday and is in progress; the other is due in 4 weeks and hasnâ€™t been started yet.
I also have a Voyage Planning (Passage Planning) assignment which is due the same day as the second meteorology one; it also hasnâ€™t been started yet.
For January I have another group assignment (loading a general cargo ship), a bulk carrier loading plan assignment and stability coursework assignment. The bulk carrier and stability one have also been started.
Its also 4 weeks to go until I go home to Scotland for Christmas.
And to be totally random hereâ€™s a Holland America Line Captainâ€™s blog I found when randomly browsing the net.
I assume people other than my family and Marc’s dad actually read this (purely based on the random emails I get and the sheer number of hits this page receives), so if thereâ€™s anything you want me to write about, questions to answer, or just to say who you are, etc. feel free to add them as a comment to this (or any of the entryâ€™s) and Iâ€™ll get round to answering them since I think my college life postings are a bit boring.
