On Saturday, I'm going to be taking what is know is Oral and Practicals, its (you guessed it) and oral and hands-on exam for my FAA government-issued aircraft mechanic's certificate.
I have to find $200 by Saturday. Considering its the holiday season, I don't think I'll find many people to borrow from. In addition to that, I need a new tire - which is $95. Add gas, birth control, water and small amounts of food to that...its a lot more.
Now, later in December I have to take more tests, only these are writtens. There's two of them, a practice test called the "Comps" which are mandated by Lewis and you have to pass with 80% or greater to be able to take the "FAAs" which are the government tests, of which there are two subjects "Airframe" and "General". So...that's two more tests.
Those are $90...each.
Right now, there's $75 in my checking account. I get paid next friday...and it'll be about $150.
I'm so stressed, I'm physically ill.
