Hey everyone! I am the one that used to be called Lil Carolina and here is an update! Yes I did attend Celadon/Quality Drivers back in 2013 Yes I did go home early.. I had too much going on back then and I just wasn't prepared for what this industry really is about. I do not blame Celadon or any of the other students.. I simply had to figure some Life out before I attempted this again.. So here it is 2016, and yes I am heading back in the next month or so.. I am not sure when I will leave as of yet. So update on procedure.. back then we had to transfer our licenses to Indiana and become a temporary resident in order to get our permits, well now you get a permit in your home state,which I have done. Oregon on the other hand has really got to get there stuff together, I have a permit just not in my hand.. Instead of sending me my permit they sent me 3 copies of my DL LOL yes funny but frustrating.. I will be handling this on Friday.. They want me to retake the combination portion of the tests as it has been a few months back. After I finally receive that in my hand I will contact my recruiter again and let her know so that we can schedule a date.. I know that its a long journey, I know what to expect this time around. I also know that I will be sharing my practice time with possibly hundreds of other students! I am going to utilize my down time to practice and work on the pre trip. I will not let anything get me down this time! Trucking is what you make it!! Secondly, I don't expect to be rich my first year, I know the wages suck.. I am not about making money at this point, I am about learning, and getting the experience I need so that I can move on to better things..

Best of luck, if I'm in Indy anytime next month I'll have to PM you and buy you lunch.

I am not exactly sure when I will be there yet.. The Oregon DMV is super slow and they messed up with my Permit.. You can find me on Facebook under Monica Carpenter if you like..
