1. it was only by a half point;
2. the guy who beat me is no longer in the class (due to the split I talked about at length in my last post);
3. now that we're split, I'm in the lead by 84¼ points (this may go down after the four Seamen a week behind catch up to us).
So now we wait for six days. And tonight, I get a full dose of boredom because I'll be doing watch quals. This is where they teach me how to stand watch in the school building so I can do that sort of thing when I finish A school. I have to do twelve hours of them - I plan on knocking out at least six (hopefully seven or even eight) tonight.
