  1. I'm not a kid, but I (embarrassingly) never learned to drive manual. It's rather difficult to learn when you have never had access to a manual car.
  2. Oh man, it was a bad ending for KC. KC scored a TD with little time remaining in the game, to make it 18-16. They then actually GOT the 2-point conversion (the guy was wide open in the end zone), but were called for holding, so it was taken back. The points were erased, the line of scrimmage was pushed back 10 yds, and they had to go for it again... And missed.
  3. I did a 5k with friends around Lake Merritt in Oakland yesterday. Slower pace than I would have done on my own, but it was a refreshing change to run with others and get to chat along the way! Hoping to get a long run (read, 10 miles) in this coming weekend, as I do have a half marathon coming the first weekend of February...
  4. Action
  5. The flowcharts really only apply to people who are presumably taking the national PE Exam before they are approved by the CA BPELSG to take the state specific seismic and surveying exams. For example, my coworker, who graduated in June 2016 with his M.S., has registered to take the national PE Exam this spring without sending in the application to the CA Board. As he does not have the one year of work experience needed to take the state specific exams, he will wait to apply to take those exams and will, by design, be spreading his exams out over two test periods. I think the general idea now is that CA is giving the opportunity to people to take the national PE exam without needing Board approval. Thus, one can absolutely register for and pass the national PE exam before they have the required work experience to take the state specific exams. Nothing is stopping anyone from waiting any number of years (i.e. one year with a master's degree, two years with an undergraduate degree only) after graduating college before taking the PE Exam. In this case, as long as you have Board approval, you could take all three exams in one cycle and assuming you pass all of them, be done with it.
  6. Sounds good to me! My study plan is to mainly do practice problems during the week, and tackle the videos on the weekends. I'm going to try to stay slightly ahead of the schedule, but that may vary a bit depending on any other commitments I have.
  7. Yep, I agree with @Dleg. I think the main idea behind it is to make the roads safer.
  8. Today's the Friday!
  9. By "save your route", I do not mean that it saves a map of your route. It will simply save that you biked X number of miles, so your donation will not disappear.
  10. Finally, blue skies after a stormy past week.
  11. I'm not a WRE taker (doing structural, third time... Ugh) but am signed up for EET's on-demand breadth (and on-demand depth structural). Have you started any of the videos yet? I have started the Estimates one, but just barely. I wouldn't mind doing collaborative stuff, at least for breadth since that's where we overlap.
  12. Copying this over from the running thread! Because it applies to those who bike, also! To those of us who run, or bike, with our phones... Has everyone heard of Charity Miles? It's an AMAZING app where you are sponsored by a company (like Johnson & Johnson, or Wanderlust, etc.) to run indoors or outdoors, or bike outdoors, and donate money to the charity of your choice during your workout. It involves zero money on your part, as it is your sponsoring company that is making the donation. It can run in the background while you are running any other apps like the NRC app, MapMyRun or MapMyFitness, or Strava. It can even save your route and upload it later if you (like I do sometimes) forget to turn on your data but lose wifi during your run. Seriously, Charity Miles is my favorite app I have ever come across. It can take a little bit to get the hang of remembering to turn it on, but it is such a feel good way to exercise.
  13. Nice job, @wilheldp_PE! I have trouble pacing myself sometimes, as well. I generally slow down inherently as time goes on in my runs, and still burn myself out sometimes. I find I need to run on a really consistent basis and be doing the same or similar routes repeatedly before I can really pace myself well. Granted, I do all of this without any means of really timing my run, other than the clock on my phone. Which reminds me! To those of us who run, or bike, with our phones...

  14. That is AWESOME!
  15. I wish I looked as chill as you do after running a half marathon! My face gets SO pink and ridiculous. Haha!
