I apologize for the shortness of this post. Although you are probably grateful as they seem to be long posts all this week. I didn’t get home until late last night and thus I didn’t get to bed until almost 1pm. And I went straight to bed. I did not read like I normally do. I was sleeping so hard that I had to wake up with my alarm. I am quite exhausted. And because I am running behind this may be another double post for the day.
Two things happened last night. The first was I don’t think I am cut out to be a scuba diver. I don’t find it a challenge to be overcome. I just get down right terrified. It is something that is no longer on my bucket list. The second thing is I may have done some damage to my left ear. I still was having problems getting it to equalize but when it did I got a sharp pain and it has just been a dull ache ever since. Right now I noticed the difference in how my typing sounded. All this being said my instructor still wants me to take the exams on Sunday. Which means it will be a scuba reading session at work tonight and then the next few days I will tackle the online material. It won’t be a lot to get through but some of the tests will be a stinker because they don’t use legit answers at times. So that may gum things up.
I don’t know if I will even be able to try any diving Sunday with my ear in it’s current condition. I am tempted to go to the doctor but I don’t have the co-pay so I am gonna have to wing it and hope for the best. My instructor is going to bring his wife to give me some one on one training Sunday (she is a dive master). If my ear is not any better I will call and tell him what is going on. I may show up for the written either way. Truthfully I don’t care if I make it or not. I tried and I learned a lot of new skills and I was able to over come some fears.
I will give a breakdown of the day once I get home tonight. It will be nice to just stay home for once instead of rushing off. I hope everyone has a great day! Cheers!
