  1. Go to Walmart and treat yo self to a $2 dollar special kids watch. They usually have an assortment of themes like X-Men, Spider-Man, Minions, Star Wars, Ninja Turtles, etc., etc. I went with a John Cena WWE watch. I had to punch a hole in the plastic band to fit my beefy wrists, but it was worth it....lol. The looks that I got alone was worth it....people take themselves too damn serious. Just a simple way to lighten things up in an already stressful situation. Watches shouldn't add to it.
  2. Ballz....you're totally right. Oh well, Engineer Seals has been good so far despite being a little more expensive. They were quick to send me my electronic seal (within about 4 hours). Excited to get my pre-inking stamp....should be here Monday.
  3. I just ordered a self-inking and electronic stamp from engineerseals.com . I wasn't super happy about the price, but the state of Utah requires your stamp to be 1-1/2 inches in diameter, as opposed to the more common sizes of 1-5/8 or 2 inches. I tried going to pestamps.com and they only offered 1-5/8 inches, while engineerseals.com offered both 1-5/8 and 1-1/2 inches. Again, not totally happy about the price, and I tried searching everywhere for a coupon code, but found nothing. I will be happy to post an update on shipping speed, quality of stamp, customer service, etc for anyone that cares
  4. And in comes our glorious big brother mounted upon his/her/their steed of righteousness to right all wrongs and bail all entities deemed "unfailable" out. Okay, so a little sarcasm there, but in all honesty, I don't know what the answer is here. I believe in a very limited government, and a free market. But in our recent history, we've seen big business in bed with big government....blurring the line between the two. The government should have no say in the functionality and serviceability of the internet. However, I also don't believe that a company should be so big that it is a complete mo
  5. DO NOT let worry, or doubt, or any of those negative thoughts creep in to your head! My failure was totally on me, 100%! I even said that in my review of EET. I either psyched myself out, or worse, my dyslexia got the better of me and I was off on filling in my answers on the scantron sheet. The only reason I think that might be true is I only got 10 answers right in the morning. More specifically, I only got 1 out of 7 on the water section, which is my bread and butter. Then, in the afternoon, I did better than average on those same topics (Hydraulics and Hydrology). Afternoon problems are ob
  6. Also, if you take the EET WRE Depth course, you learn about what Nazrul calls the "friend equation". It's the friend equation because after you learn it, and learn how to use it, you end up using it so much in the afternoon session that it becomes your friend! Ha, ha! I found this to be true. Anyone else?
  7. You know what...I have to be honest here; I didn't really change much of my studying. My studying was just more focused on the areas I did the worst on according to the exam diagnostics. When it came to EET stuff, I mostly just went through the binders on my own instead of following along with the online webinars....especially Breadth. I focused more on getting practice problems done, which the EET binders provide PLENTY! Other than that, I got out of my head a little bit.....took a deep breath, and strangely found a way to relax more. I firmly believe you can play mind games with yoursel
  8. I passed the 2nd time in WRE. I highly recommend EET! My weakness was in breadth. I don't feel like EET is as strong in breadth as they are in depth (specifically speaking about WRE). I should say, their content is good but their instructors just weren't my style, so I went over the content on my own. As for the depth... Nasrul is the man! He genuinely cares about your success, and he guarantees it. The only thing I took with me in to the exam was my EET binders and the cerm. I used the cerm on maybe 2 problems, that's it. Look at your diagnostics and see what areas you need to imp
  9. Yes, it does give you a breakdown on your NCEES. This was the 2nd time taking it for me. Fortunately, I passed this go-around. When I failed the first time I took it pretty hard since I took EET courses and studied like a mofo. The craziest part about it was I walked out of that test feeling pretty confident. When I got my results, it showed I failed and failed hard! I didn't even know where to begin to study for attempt number 2. But I was pissed and I used that rage as fuel to do as many practice problems as I could get my hands on. When I walked out of the test this time, I didn't feel very
  10. The a-holes in the free sample lines at Costco. Raaaaaaaage!!!!
  11. Believe me, believe me.....I would know. I've seen a lot of tots in my day. Absolute yuge amounts of tots....believe me.
  12. Those are some of the best looking tots I have ever laid eyes on!
