Journal Entry:
I got to sleep in a little again today and woke up feeling quite a bit better. At the dive center Stacy and I spent the morning studying for the physiology exam and then taking it. After a huge lunch at the pizzeria we were back in the classroom. We spent the afternoon studying for, and taking, the equipment exam. Today was the second day in a row out of the water, but it was good to give my ears a rest, and now we're completely done with the bookwork and exams.

After finishing the equipment exam I grabbed a beer and read my James Bond novel. I spent an hour on the Internet then went with Stacy to a light dinner at the Sharks Club (French fries and thick shakes).
