So things are slowly starting to get busier. I officially got the NCOIC position at work, which means more responsibility but less pay... for now. I will be going to the promotion board on the 7th of November. I am trying to get promoted in December so I need to have all the points I can by then. That means working mindlessly on coorespondence courses. I was almost maxed out, until they decided to change the points system again.

So things are really starting to get crazy around here. My third class has started, I'm trying to keep up with the first two, and I have to get ready for the promotion board on the 7th of November. Also, along with everything else, I have not officially been given the NCOIC position at work, I pretty much have the job, which means more responsibility, and more to have to worry about. Of course, I don't mind, its all for the better. While I am really hoping to make points before the beginning of the year, I'm not sure if that will be possible. While I am doing everything I can to help, I'm not sure how many of my classes will count, so I don know how many points I actually have. Guess I will just have to keep an eye on the points for this month, and get a feel for what the trend will be for the next couple of months. Then to make things even harder, they are changing the point system again, so all the work I am doing on correspondence courses may not matter any more in January. Guess that means I better get on getting into more actual classes to get the points that I need. Wish me luck.
