Hello my fellow EMS'ers,
Things sure have been crazy for me. I am working my way through Paramedic orientation while finishing out my "basic" shifts. That pretty much means that I have no life what so ever. Thats ok though. I am actually learning a lot. Its made me open my eyes to a whole new world. I knew that once I passed medic classes and testing that the "real" learning was just beginning but I had no clue as to how! I kind of have had to have a slap in the face to wake me up. I think I am finally starting to get the hang of thinking like a medic and not like a basic. Yes, I know basic skills before medic but it was hard for me until recently to step up and play medic rather than hiding behind the medic. It was hard for me to get out of my thinking that way. Since then things have been going a lot better!!! I have one more orientation day next week then the week after I start taking over as medic. To be honest.....I am scared $hitle$$. Its intimidating.
Well in other news, I am getting ready to go on vacation next month. I am going to Wyoming to see family and to meet my new nephew!! He will hopefully be born the first week of September. I am getting excited. I think it will be a fun trip. I am driving so it will be a long trip but thats ok. I am up to the challenge. Once I get back, I will start orienting on the other ambulance that I will be working on. I am excited for that but it will be strange not being the student on that rig.
I also started my classes for my bachelors degree. I am doing a lot online so thats nice. I am actually really enjoying my classes so far. That could change by next quarter LOL. I am going for my Bachelors in Psychology. YES....I know.....I am crazy!!
Well I think that is all that is new with me. Life is busy but boring non-the-less around here. I hope this finds all of you doing well out there in EMS land!
