N162HG Emily 1.3

More closed pattern work with new-ish instructor.

Advice was to not fixate on traffic, and not be anxious as that causes me to be reactive. Also we discussed the need to guesstimate a "weird" pattern -- e.g. if I am asked to extend my downwind, when do I begin my descent? The idea is to imagine the pattern as a set of "squares" -- if I make the first base turn, then I begin my descent abeam the numbers; second, I begin my descent while turning base; etc. Conveniently, the Shoreline Amphitheatre is right around when you'd want to begin your descent if you come straight in.
