So we had another non-driver here other than Viper? How many more are there? We need to out then harangue them immediately! Membership should be conditional on a driver's license at minimum. The ability to change one's own gears should be mandatory too IMHO.

:woot: So, your first own drive goes where?

My first drive (well, sort of long drive) is gonna be on Saturday evening from Sachsenring back to Kissing where I live. Our company cars are only insured for people over 25 years of age, and I turn 24 in a week. I probably have to butter my boss into changing the policy on atleast one of the cars so I can drive it. Right now there are more cars in the lot than employees :p It's high time though, I've been doing my license since March this year but continuous schedule conflicts between me and my instructor meant I only managed to finish just now. I did have a few sessions of careful hooning at the Boxberg Test Facility though. :)

Pretty sure Jedd doesn't have a license.

Second achievement unlocked! Just took a Porsche 968 CS for an hour's tour of Augsburg outskirts. Man I have been missing out on this new fad driving thing!

I just got a job for a national retailer, only contracted for 10.5 hours. But allegedly you get constant overtime.

... and remember "It's not insurance, it's 'extracare'" (That's the Comet word, I don't work for Comet but you get the idea.)

You're discriminating against us poor Americans in a sea of automagic boxes and no practical access to manuals! Except for that one time my friend let me drive his decade-old Saturn around the high school parking lot for 15 minutes!

I am now helping to plan our first ever black tie fundraiser for the March of Dimes, and I'm in charge of finance!

Eleven months of planning later and we finally pulled it off. We had four companies sponsor us (and an equal number saying they would next year if this year's went well, but we'll see) and raised $1,500 for the March of Dimes.

Pre-dinner.jpg

The event was on campus at the University Club, the school bought it a few years ago and poured millions into renovating it.

March of Dimes gave a speach during the dinner. One of the things they talked about was the size of premature babies- they brought plastic baby feet that were the actual size to give an image of how small they are. They were only just long enough to reach from one end of a quarter to the other.

Also, the cake was fantastic.

The planning team- I'm on the right.

Next big achievement! Attended my first instructed track session. Did four laps of Sachsenring yesterday in a new Clio RS with colleague and instructor as the passenger. I drove like a pussy and got overtaken by stock Twingo :(

I just had a client who is court-ordered to therapy ask if they could continue to see me once they are done with the mandated course of treatment.

That. Never. Happens.

Phew!

I've finally found a room in Cologne. The market here is an absolute horror for students like me with a limited budget - or rather already stretched beyond what had previously been the maximum. The solution, however, is pretty decent: a 14m2 room in a small two-bedroom flat which is owned by the parents of my future roommate and in very, very decent shape. ?330 per month including all utilities is pretty steep in general terms, but (unfortunately, you could say) fair for what I'm getting.
