Pro tip: Digging up a 4 year old thread to make your first post a response with a link that is related to the topic by a margin so thin you can see through it will get you introduced to the ban hammer immediately and permanently.

Well applying again for that flight job. Resume is a little fluffier and I know someone inside now, so hopefully I can make some progress this go around.
Even though I am generally very satisfied with my life and career the way it is now, I still miss and often reminisce about my HEMS days. Good luck.

Sitting at sky Harbor with my girlfriend waiting to pick up her friend and the greenbay packers just rolled by.

Thanks! This one would have a nice blend of some of my favorite things about my city and county job with really good insurance and some nice education benefits to put towards my post bacc. It'd definitely be a good move for a few reasons.

Another SWAT bg extra scene tomorrow woot! Even if I don't actually get in any shots it's still a fun way to earn a few extra bucks :D
Hard to be in any scenes when me and all the other Swat sat in the Extras holding room all day, they literally never pulled any of us to set lol. But they're doing another shoot day next week so maybe then? At least we still get paid for showing up all the same haha

I got a chance to meet @DrParasite in person. We had a couple of these tiny beers.

Well, it’s no Das Boot…in all seriousness I’ve been off the booze for a few months and I’m kind of enjoying it. Like. A lot.

In other news, the older I get the more I am grateful for learning to separate my identity as a provider, i.e., my job over who I actually am—a husband to the best wife and a father to the most awesome kids.

Just got back from a trip to Co Springs just the wife and I. @Tigger it was our first time but what a great town. Garden of the Gods was amazing.

The less I say that "I am a paramedic" and the more I say "I work as a paramedic" the happier I've been and the less burned out I feel.

Unrelated note... Anyone is Wisconsin?

When you walk into another station and the crew left a whole intricate board game version of like Civilization out (its actually Pax Pamir?) They also have like 3 other game boxes out. Just something one doesn't expect to see at a Fire station haha

Funny how you can change your mindset with one little change of phrase. I still enjoy being a paramedic, but it’s not all I am.

Also, finished my BS in EMS admin last week, getting my ducks in a row to start a Masters in Public Administration. I‘ve shifted my career goals over the past year and believe moving to state level EMS is where I can make some impact on our EMS education standards and instructor development.

Every now and again we’ll play a quick game of risk.

Is that when you sit down in the recliners and say it is a quiet day with a bowl of ice cream?
