Council Bluffs, Iowa: Day 2

Well today got off to a fast start. I had tossed and turned all night. I guess because my sleeping pattern was of slightly for being off work these last couple of weeks.

I woke up at 330am to hear someone talking loudly on a phone in the room next to me. I finally got up and put some ear plugs in and went back to sleep. I woke up again at 530am. I thought to myself that I could at least sleep another 30 minutes before my alarm went off so I then took my ear plugs out. I suddenly woke up again and looked at the clock. It was 635am! Obviously one of two things happened. Either I didn't hear the alarm or it didn't go off. Anyway I jumped out of bed, threw my work clothes on and headed toward the job site. I arrived at about 705am but luckily I wasn't aware that the shift begins at 715am.

The first thing I had to do today was go through safety orientation with about 20 other inviduals. Even though it was very informative at times I could've fell asleep because it lasted until about 230pm. After that it was off to the welding test both. Upon arriving there another guy and I were informed that instead of taking a tube test we were going to take a plate test. Plate tests are a little more easier. I began the first of two plates to be welded and then it was almost quitting time. So anyway I'll finish up those tomorrow morning and hopefully I'll get the results back soon. I'll post more on this tomorrow!
