I'm Not Dead (but give me a week or so...)

Unfortunately, I won't be able to give you guys much of an update about what's going on, but the long and short of it is that I lost my job, was unemployed for almost two months, and am now starting ground school for another airline. For the moment, I'm not going to say who my new employer is, due to the fact that saying as much would give away my location and potentially spoil the latest mischief I have up my sleeve, but I'm now living in yet another hotel in yet another city I've never been to before. I'll be here for another 2.5 weeks and then have some time off (don't know how long yet, they haven't made our schedules, but it could be anywhere from two days to two months) before heading to the simulator. Ground school is shorter here than at Big Sky (3 weeks vs. 4), but covers the same amount of material, so I have to study that much harder.

That's about it for now, I really wish I had time for more of an update, but I really need to hit the books. Our first test is on Friday, our second one is Monday, and the third is coming up next Saturday, so it's a pretty accelerated pace. Here's a picture I took the other morning of the airplane I'm going to be flying in the near future (you have to admit, it's a much better looking bird than Big Sky's Beech 1900D's):
