I roamed around with bad intentions again last night hoping to lose a ship or two (it's definitely time that I had that experience and something I need to get used to) - but had no luck finding anything less than a battlecruiser-size opponent. That seemed like just too easy of a way to lose a ship, so I passed... There seems to be a real absence of reasonable targets in low-sec (something that I had read about on blogs by other frigate PvPers) - several systems were totally empty and others had just one or two occupants (often resting in stations).
I also finished training Science to level IV so that I could train Thermodynamics (it's now at III). And now I'm again back to training Small Projectile Turret V - two more days to go on that one. Then Electronics to V (I think that might be a 4 day training period).
