On the path

So, I've made the decision to get my Fire 1. I really don't know if I want to be a fire fighter, but I know a lot of agencies require you to have your fire certs and then you work in the ambulance. As it appears, to get into a lot of those places, you need to have fire experience.


I'm currently in training to be in top physical condition (because at 4'10", it's not going to be easy!) in order to take the testing required so that I can go and be a fire fighter, and then a fire EMT (and eventually, a fire medic)

That being said, I had my first training session with the personal trainer, Michael. He's not too terribly cruel yet. I'm hoping he stays that way :)

Burpee's suck, just so you know!

I know why I do so horribly at keeping these things up-to-date. A. My grammar is atrocious and I hate proving that by writing where everyone can read it (without an editor, anyway.)
B. I have a paper journal that I can carry anywhere with me.
C. I'm pretty sure nobody reads this anyway.
But occasionally, I feel like I should at least attempt, just incase there is somebody out there who cares what might be happening in the far-away life of me.

So, that being said. If you actually read this, let me know and I'll try to be more diligent. If not, I'll just keep this to follow everyone else :)

Testicular cancer

I found out a few days ago that my best friend has been diagnosed with testicular cancer. He went into surgery this morning to remove a tumor and they've discovered that the cancer's spread to his abdomen. He'll meet with the oncologist in the next couple days to get the next line of attack/defence in order.

Keep him in your prayers

At least today is over... Bring on tomorrow. I need a sunrise.
