It's been a long time since I've blogged.

I have been kind of down in the dumps because I have put in applications for about five different EMT positions and have not heard back from any of them, not even a rejection notification.

I just want to learn. I love learning so much. Not history and that type of stuff (although it is still important...). Sometimes, I just want to fast forward about three years so that I ,hopefully, have my Paramedic and am out in the field doing what I love. But, I am also enjoying the brand new stuff that I learn everyday. Medicine and the human body are incredibly amazing. We have drugs now a days that practically raise people from death's door. I've seen it. Trauma surgeons take people, mutilated and deformed from awful accidents and can cut, clamp, and sew tissue and flesh until everything works again. Its magical. One very muscular organ pumps oxygen rich blood to the very tips of our fingers and toes and allows us to live.

People are going to depend on us someday, the EMTs, paramedics, firefighters. We are the ones that are going to be there in a moment that they have had no preparation or warning of. They are going to place their loved ones, or their own lives into our hands. I just pray that God gives me the strength to take care of these people the best I can in the few short moments when I am with them.

I want more than anything to help people. More than that, I want to be excellent at what I am learning and striving to become.
