Commercial 2 - Done!

I passed my Commercial 2 checkride on friday, which is good news although I would have liked to do better. There are always 2 parts to a checkride, the oral exam and the flying exam. I know, I know, everyone makes jokes at the oral exam. Anyways, the oral part was mostly a joke were we sat there reading some weird legal definitions from part 1 of the Federal Aviation Regulations. The flying part was worse. I had never flown with, or even really talked to the instructor I was doing this with. I didn't understand a lot of what he was asking and he mumbled a lot. All that on top of my anxiety and bad decision making and you have one lousy checkride. Still managed to pass and I guess that's all that matters. I hate commercial manuevers. Now I'm flying the retractable landing gear Cessna 172's for Commercial 3 for about a month until my Commercial 3 checkride where I will become a commercial pilot and can be paid to fly.

After that, on friday we went to see Serenity. It was just Rick and Alison and me. It was a really good movie, but they killed some characters I liked. I was hoping another tv network would pick it up, but I don't know if I want to see any more without them. He didn't even need to die. There was no point. But I guess there never is...
