I'm 25 years old today. Crew scheduling has given me the gift of 10 consecutive days without working: 3 days off, 3 days of reserve that I didn't get called on, and another 4 days off. Tomorrow I go back on reserve, and I'm kinda hoping I get used. The time off was nice and allowed me to catch up on some projects, but I'm going to go a little stir crazy if I continue to sit around the house (rainy weather has prevented me from getting in some early-season hiking).
Eight years ago today I was passing my Private Pilot checkride. Jeeze, where has the time gone?
