What I thought was going to be a f***ed up stressfull day turned out to be one of the slower days ever that turned out to be a f***ed up stressfull day. Yesterday I planned to take a surfing lesson in the morning and do the physical examination in the afternoon and catch the bus in the evening. Decided against the surf lesson, since I might miss out on the exam, and then I'd have wasted 300 $ on the diving. So that relaxed everything and in the morning I'd just chill. Daylight comes and I crawl out of bed. First things first: book a bus!
Turns out the bus was full so there was no way of getting to airlie beach, and therefore Magnetic Island until tomorrow evening which meant I would be there noon on friday. A bit late when I have to be there at 9 AM, thursday.
Started panicing, realizing that I was going to miss the dive. Figured then there would be no need for the exam then, so I could atleast save the $63 for 20 min exam. But I figured no harm in calling the company and ask if they can reschedule the course. Slim chance, but better than nothing and sure as hell worth the shot to avoid wasting 300 bucks.
SCORE! Changed the date to saturday instead.
Next obstacle: arrived at the medical center well in time and waited for 30 min for the check-up. Soon as I came in and Said I wanted a diver cert exam the doctor said they didn't have the equipement there to do one. Damn, strike-out again.
Called up to airlie beach and they could do it. All that remained was to book tickets up to cairns and then to Sydney.
PERFECT match, although I'll have to spend 12:30 am to 5:30 am in townsville til the ferry starts moving.
