I got into a VanPool today. This is good because A) I don’t want to ride an hour each way on the bus; and B) I don’t want to pay $120/month in gas to drive in. The VanPool meets at the Greenlake Park and Ride and leaves promptly at 6:35am (6:34am rolls around and the doors shut. All eyes are on the clock. 6:35am and the we take off pronto). It costs $55/month, but Boeing has a shared ride subsidy that effectively cuts that in half. So I end up paying about $30/month.
Here’s my typical schedule:
5:30am – Wakeup
5:40am – Get out of bed/Take shower
6:10am – get out of shower/get dressed
6:25am – Leave for Greenlake P&R
6:35am – Leave Greenlake P&R
7:05am – Arrive KSC
12ish – Lunch
3:40pm – Leave office to meet VanPool
3:50pm – Leave KSC
4:25pm – Arrive Greenlake P&R
Today was more Java programing. Just about halfway there. Intense though. Had two meetings today and my role is starting to develop. Looks like I’m going to be working on developing a software application from scratch which will be pretty cool. There isn’t a internally assigned name yet, but I’m going to reference it as Deicer for the time being (although it has nothing to do with de-icing). Requirements still aren’t set yet, but that will be taken care of tomorrow with my first conference call.
Note: This wasn’t posted until 6/1/2006. I needed to review it and didn’t have time until now.
