  1. When it first happened, I was really amused by it...but the Netflix documentary really delved into Bahamians who were assisting with the festival were screwed over and weren't paid...and one lost her life savings. Awful. Six years in jail isn't enough for that asshole.
  2. We watched BOTH documentaries on the Fyre Festival. What a bunch of assholes. I feel like both documentaries compliment each other, because each delves into something the other doesn't.

    EET WRE Couse with Dr. Nazrul Islam

    Yep, even though I'm enviro, I took the water resources/environment depth. Nazrul is just as amazing as everyone says! It was a great course and I think was one of the main reasons I finally passed!
  4. Texas now lets you sit for the exam without having the work experience. This is a pretty recent development, I think around 2016/2017.

    Third time is a charm?

    Hello there! I'm a third timer who finally passed in October 2018. It can be done! What helped me was first, focusing the majority of my studies on what I was weakest in from my diagnostic reports. The second thing was identifying what study habits needed to be corrected. The first two tries, I was pretty lazy about studying. I studied on the couch, and read the texts without doing as many problem sets as I should have. Third, were you studying during any major life events that took your focus away from studying? I was planning a wedding during my first two attempts, and while there are some people out there who are awesome and can multi-task like that, I was not one of them. Acknowledging my weaknesses and figuring out how many hours *I* felt comfortable with really helped me. There are some people on here who passed without having to study much. That's great! But again, I'm not one of those people. I had to put in 200 hours before I felt comfortable about my chances of passing. For the third round, I made sure I only studied at my kitchen table, away from distractions. I worked as many problem sets as I could. While work was still keeping me busy, I didn't have other life events to distract me. So all I had to do was come home, cook dinner, then study. The month leading up to the test, I'd study about an hour before work, then another 2 hours or so afterward. I finally put in the quality time I needed to on my third attempt, and that helped me pass. Are you doing any review courses? I took EET because I was so weak in water, and can't recommend them enough. Best of luck! You got this!

    Late Bloomer Questions

    I'm not a mechanical PE, so I won't speak to any of those questions. But as someone who took the PE 10 years after graduation, I most definitely do not recommend the "try it and see" approach. It's a really difficult and expensive test, and since I didn't take it seriously enough the first time around, I failed. I finally passed (after, ahem, three tries). I finally got serious the third time around and logged 200 hours studying. I wish I'd done that the first time around, I would have saved myself a lot of money and misery. Seriously, just study as much as you can and get it done the first time.
  7. Yeahhhh the whole "thanking items for their service" thing is a bit much, but I guess whatever makes people feel better about tossing their junk lol.
  8. I'm being a basic bitch and watching Marie Kondo's organizing show. It's fun, I like it and it's giving me ideas for my home. Just watching some of those houses stresses me out though. I'm not going to pretend I'm a super neat freak, but I'm clean and too much clutter stresses me out.

    PE Exam time

    4 hours max for each session. And proctors are very strict about pencils being down when they call time, otherwise your results could get invalidated. You certainly have people who finish early during each session, but I was not that person...I used up every minute!

    It's Friday!!!!

    I remember a higher up proudly talking about his team pulling together a proposal that was due on Christmas. I mean, I get that the entire concept of consulting is winning clients, making money, getting projects, etc etc etc BUT if a potential client wants a proposal on Christmas, DO WE REALLY WANT TO WORK WITH THEM? Ugh, anyway, I'm sorry to hear that your proposal is due on Jan. 2nd, that's awful. I hope you all win the work!
