    A gent I used to work with would do a modified 2 handed seal even when he was the only person bagging. He'd basically look like he was duck winging it and held the seal with both hands, squeezing the bag with his elbow between his abdomen. Was always super interesting to watch. I managed to try...

    My mother has a story she loves recounting; got asked what I wanted to be when I was older when I was about 8. I responded with "well, a college student". The person (can't remember who it was) said "what about after?" I apparently acted like it was the day I found out Santa wasn't real and was...

    Hot Take?

    In my area, SOP was a LEO would do a pat down. Now, I've never seen it happen, but I doubt anyone I worked with would've been cognizant enough to do that themselves if PD happened to arrive a significant amount of time after us, myself included; but I worked in Phoenix, so arguably it was a few...

    It's truly not that bad. I was nearly finished with my emergency ops degree anyways, so just added a class for that. The biotech degree is built into it already, so no extra coursework. The program is highly chem intensive, so that minor is nearly built into it (just had to add ochem, which I...

    Kinda forgot to have basic mannerisms in that post and say thanks for the well wishes 😂 sorry. Hope everything is going well with you as well and I do appreciate the kind words! I'm sure once I'm further in the program, I'll be on here more. Spend 2 years of the program on a research project...

    Hi gentlemen and gentlewomen! Just wanted to say hello. Trying to lurk on here more. Not a medic anymore, but still enjoy the talk; actually a full time student again, hurray student loans! 😬 (also deleted fb and all other social media, so my fingers need something else to click on whenever I...

    Well. Guess that postpones that. I found one that did but it's a few hours drive. Might be worth a hour and a half drive to get that included. Also included itls. Debating on whether a 3 hour drive each day both ways is worth saving the extra few hundred.

    Groupon it, my dude. Last I checked Sam's was 25 on there. And yep I came back from a 2 year hiatus to tell someone to Groupon. Try to keep myself browsing here every once in a while, but I got out of ems. Debating on whether or not to get back into it . How's everyone been?

    I'm looking pretty much everywhere. Nevada, Texas, Iowa, Washington, Tennessee have all been viable options that I've found decent places hiring, sign on bonus and relocation funds. Might be too much to hope for, but hey, if I can get all that, then all the better. The job in Iowa is actually...

    For the moment. I got kind of shafted by one of the larger ambo companies in the area and am really considering relocating out of state. Going to talk to the girly about it this evening when I see her, actually and see how that goes before I put out apps, but I would really like to get out of AZ...

    Can't do anything, but roll with it. Unless you were referring to me not seeing Star Wars as the part that sucks, in which case, I can always watch it in the future... Hahaha

    I know this is blasphemous, but I actually haven't seen that movie. Or any of them. I only recognized it by the actor and the meme which I've seen like once before, haha. I'm going to try to be more active here. I'm trying to get back in the field currently, had some health issues and lost my...
