Thinking over the upcoming summer


Lately I’ve been stressing over my plans for this summer. I don’t know where I will be staying, if I will be working or not, or if I will have to cover the flight fees flight out of my savings. It’s a lot to think about/stress over, and I’m a little worried. I think it is a very poor rule that EKU has for students that they have to stay on campus for at least 4 semesters,be over the age of 21, or have a primary residence with parents to be able to stay off campus. It makes life on aviation students very hard. I would love to grab a cheap apartment to stay in, and hold down a couple of jobs this summer, however I’m not sure if I can find one that would allow me to only rent for a couple of months. I would also love to keep it for the rest of my education at EKU, but the silly semester rule prevents me from doing so and makes summer flying a difficult time to plan. Right now, I am leaning towards finding an apartment of some kind, and only signing up for the next flight lab which I believe is multi-engine. Even if I have to live in Lexington for the summer, I think this is my best option. I would also love to keep a room mate in order to keep living costs down, because money is becoming stressful too as I mentioned before with the savings. It will also be hard being away from family for a stretch of months during which most college students get to spend at home. I guess the struggle is all a part of chasing your dream of flying. All of this has been floating in my head these past couple of days, and I need to sit down and plan it out when I finally have some free time after UPS. I’m sure it will all work out.

Have a fantastic week,
