    I'm like you except im already enrolled in my advanced class their just waiting for a good date to get it started to work around everyones schedules. But im excited I can't wait.

    I cant think of many things more adrenaline pumping then to be over 60 ft. underwater in pitch black darkness and then to shine up your light and see a shark close to your position

    You don't have to worry about seeing the shark. You aways HEAR the music before the shark strikes.
    Don't read this link if you are squeamish about night dives.

    A fun thing to do once you are comfortable is to turn off your light and just sit still. Amazing what you can see at night. I recently found a large turtle on a night dive in the Bahamas. Turned my light away and just hung out with him. It was delightful.

    Oooooh and turn off your light and then dance in the phosphorescence !

    I thought you had moved down to Deliverance Country. What happened?
    Did you miss the cold too much?
