You're at an awesome point - it can only get better! Well, maybe it can get worse, too, but with a little work on your compass skills, you'll be on top soon. Are you on the CSU-training email list?
Heh, thanks! Chalking it up as a learning experience helps take the edge off. I'll remember sucking that bad for quite awhile, screw my head on right in future starts, and be a bit more methodical. CSU-wise, I'm definitely on the list, and hopefully my schedule will play nice in the near future - I was real bummed to miss out on both your night-o and Brendan's tufts course. I'm particularly motivated now, what with the fresh (and thorough) reminder of needing more training.
