AUD Class 2

171 days remaining
Mood – Tired
Study Time – 4.0 hours (26.5 total)
Sections Taken/Passed:  none/none 

15 hours days are not something I'd recommend to others.  I got out of bed around 7 am this morning and the first thought in my head was "it will be 15 hours before I get out of class tonight."  Here we are 15.5 hours later and I'm writing my post.  The work day started with loading a dozen printers in the pouring down rain (wet and sweat).  The work day concluded with getting behind overly dusty server racks in a noisy server room trying to help solve server/switch issues with our corporate IT folks.  After that, the real fun began.  I was pretty pooped going into class.  I felt good about the class itself though since I did so well on the questions on Sunday.  The class was mostly like the first.  The first seven pages of the section have been replaced by new material that is testable.  Thankfully, it is mostly the same as the old, just different terms and a couple of additional bullet points to learn.  There was a lot of highlighting and notes made.  We'll see if I can get over the 90-95% mark on the questions tomorrow.

The fun for tonight:  periodic chirping.  We've been fighting our smoke detector for the last week.  A couple of times we've woken up hearing the periodic (every 20ish seconds) chirp from the alarm.  Normally this would be a low battery chirp.  I put a new battery in it on Friday, but the chirping continued, but went away by time I got home.  Apparently it started back up sometime today, so now we get to try to go to sleep with the loud chirp every 20ish seconds.  Oddly enough, the chirping continues even when the alarm is disconnected and no battery is in it.  It sounds like the chirping is actually coming from the wiring in the ceiling, but that could just be a function of the pitch and shortness of the chirp making it hard to tell.  I'll have to see if the warranty guys I work with (work for a home builder) have any ideas or can get me the number of someone who will.

Off to the showers and bed for this CPA Exam preparer.
