    Got offered a 25% discount (from a shop affiliated with a club I'm in) on a pair of DC One-X and I jumped on it. Arrived on my doorstep today and first impressions are good. Of course, with 40kt gusts in the recent days, I won't be flying very soon however, I can of course just put it on my head and see how it feels.
     
    It is very compact, relatively light, comfortable (clamping pressure is not strong at all) and when I decided to play some music through bluetooth, I've got to admit, I was pleasantly surprised as it sounds pretty good. I mean the bass is a little overpowering while the mids and highs are a little underpowered but I mean music wasn't even on the middle of the list so it's wrong for me to compare it to anything audiophile. The ANR also seems to work pretty good while passive NR is probably on the slightly weaker side (but still decent). 
     
    Anyway, I'll make my mind up after flying with em but so far, it looks good.

    Sigh, time to remake all my playlists in Spotify. Switched over from soundcloud premium (been using it for about a year or so) to spotify premium as although soundcloud's libary isn't bad, spotify's is just plainly better for the simple fact that here in the UK, a lot of songs are unavailable on soundcloud. I mean I can find 95% of the songs on soundcloud but about 20% is unplayable in the UK soooo....
    And this is without mentioning how as a student, Spotify is cheaper.

    Yikes, my mother (who is abroad) has just messaged me regarding three unknown transactions on her business account. All three are from real companies (a power company, an insurance company and a debt collector), amounting to a 4 digit figure.
     
    Only problem is we've never used the power or insurance company before plus debt collection would require a physical letter to our house first. Also, considering my mother's credit rating is in the "excellent" range, I doubt she'd be ignorant enough to let a debt default. 
     
    Ah well, time to call the bank and probably insurance/power company on behalf of her (I'll get her bank to contact the debt collector as that sounds like an awful time).

    Reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee...

    2018 flashbacks, my night rating flight just got cancelled again (second time). Last year, my first solo was pushed back 2 weeks due to medical issues, QXC being put on hold for 2 weeks~ due to weather (both my instructor and I were more than ready to send myself for QXC) and my skills test was cancelled 8 times. This resulted in my PPL being completed 4 months(!) after planned due to so many delays and cancellations . 
    Ah well, as much as I complain, when the weather is nice, the scenery more than makes up for the number of cancellations and delays so I'll stop complaining.
