Congratulations! Let us know how your first week goes. Tell your trainer about us. Maybe that will scare him or her into being nice.confused.gif

Really Happy for you.

Prayers for traveling mercies. Stay safe.

Congratulations Amanda!

A very exciting time. Remember all trainers are not necessarily the greatest, but we take what we get. Just do your part and hang in there - it won't be long and you can do this all on your own. Please, keep us updated as you can.

AMANDA !!! I'd been wondering how you were doing !!! CONGRATULATIONS !!! I'm so glad that you stuck it out and finished school !! Now on to the open road with a trainer ....its both exciting and scary...but remember...learn ALL YOU can...if your trainers lips are moving, yours should not be, your ears should be open. If you have ANY just hop in here and hollar...we'll do all we can for ya. If you have a question for your trainer ASK IT....they won't know you need to know...and if it isn't clear for you, ask to have it explained. And I can't stress enough to learn how to trip plan...It is sooooo very important. Get that atlas out and make it your bible..... But be sure and find time to BREATHE...and enjoy what you can of the amazing things you are getting ready to see..... Enjoy your adventure !!!!

So I did my first day of orientation yesterday, it was so boring our schedule said we were suppose to be in class from 7-4 and since I went through the academy along with 3 others in my class, us 4 got to leave by 9 30 am. all we had to do was our drug test and fill out some paperwork and watch 3 (15 min.) movies.

today we are suppose to be in class from 7-4 again I hope today isn't like yesterday. sitting in a hotel room by myself sucks.

I have decided for my first 2 years of being on the road, that I will be teaming with someone, and I just hope the best for the two of us.

I will post later today or tomorrow morning.

hope everyone is doing good chat soon smile.gif

Amanda - Don't hang out in the hotel during your "down-time" go explore the area.

Don't worry, things will get real interesting before long. There's going to be a lot of days that you'll be wishing you had nothing to do!
