The last 12 weeks

This entry was supposed to be published last week but I didn’t manage to complete the draft until today.

Unknowingly, 12 weeks seems to have come and gone in a flash. It wasn’t too long ago when I had to carry loads of personal stuff and prepare to stay in camp for the duration of my ground school course. I was apprehensive and doubtful if I’ll be able to survive and pass the 7 modules (8 papers) as laid out.

At least for the moment, gone are the days of mugging for exams over weekends and late into the wee hours if the paper is on a weekday. I dread of the many presentations that had to be prepared and research on, not to mention the tight deadlines. Certainly, there are advantages of living in camp and cool moments. This includes being able to wake up at a later time and avoid the morning rush hour traffic to work, group discussions and studies, LAN gaming and the list goes on.

It has been a great experience and most importantly, an accomplishment to have successfully cleared all modules and pass out from the ground school course. Although there might have been bad days and rough times, I’ve managed to overcome it with the help of my fellow course mates. On second thought, this is the just the beginning of my Basic Wings Course. There’s still a long way to go but before the next phase, I hope to be able to take a good break and gather my thoughts.
