Passed my EMT practical August 1, 2011, 5:30 am
Still not finished though, need to take the written. The practical part was 6 stations used to physically demonstrate the skills. I failed two stations, had to retake them, and recently found out I passed. Nothing motivates me to get off my ass and do something quite like seeing the rest of the EMT classmates post status updates about their EMT jobs. I've kinda been putting the written off since I wanted to make sure that I know my shit going into it. Hopefully I can pass it on the first time whenever I decide to sign up.

Staying out of the way of Paramedics February 26, 2011, 7:01 pm
So I never really wrote a blog because despite some significant things in my life (graduating high school, getting into college, deaths, trips, relationships, etc) I figured you people really wouldn't care. But I thought this was kinda cool so I might as well share it. I'm currently taking an EMT class at my college and part of the requirement to pass involves spending 10 observation hours either in a hospital or riding along in an ambulance. So tomorrow from 6PM-12AM (yes I know it's 6 hours, I'll be taking a second shift in a couple weeks) I'll be doing a ride along. I heard Sundays are slow so I'm not expecting to see people tripping over their organs, but I'm still pretty excited. I got the slot to ride along with the instructor teaching my class since I already know him and he might be able to get me a job once this is all over. He said I'll probably just be taking vitals or assisting with CPR which is more than I expected, but I'm still down with that. If anything interesting happens I'll probably post it here.
