The training is, as I feared, rather boring, and filled with acronyms. Like, 43 pages' worth of acronyms, and that's not an exaggeration, it's the real number. Luckily I don't have to learn them all by heart. The instructor is very experienced in his field, but he doesn't exactly have a flair for pedagogy. He spent the day reading PowerPoint slides to us, of which we already had paper copies. I practically faceplanted on my desk out of boredom. I'm not the most engaging speaker ever, but I flatter myself that on the whole, I can do better than that.

It didn't help that the poor dog kept me up half the night with digestive distress. Again. He's very sweet about it: he just comes and stands politely by my bed until I wake up, but the fact remains that I was up every hour and a half and was therefore very tired today. Combine that with hours of very boring class and a darkened room to allow for the PowerPoint presentation, and I had a hard time keeping my eyes open. I hope the instructor didn't notice. That would be super embarrassing for the both of us.

The plan today is to go to bed early, in the hopes that I will be better rested tomorrow. It's been a refreshing change to be able to get home before dark, in any event. Eight hour days practically feel like a vacation these days. Almost.
