EMT-I Testing… Done…

Not sure how I feel about it. Everyone was right, it shutting off so suddenly is a very odd thing to happen. It shut off in 86 questions or so. I’m hoping against hope that I get my results later tonight but I’m figuring on Monday is when I’ll see if I get a new patch or not. I’d love to be sure I’m going to get it, but something just didn’t feel right.

I guess we’ll see, but work is going to suck this weekend.

I'm gonna get a lot colder

Sometime this next week I am testing for NREMT-I/85. This is to help with the move I’m doing in mid-March to the Denver area. Most likely near Lakewood or Littleton. I hate NM not having anythign to do with the NREMT before the medic level. I most likely will only get a CO EMT-B-IV license out of it, but it’s my ticket to trying to find a job and getting out of the dustbowl called NM.

I want a fresh start. A place where there’s not so many memories of personal problems. A place that I can get away from all the drama that somehow still finds me from all the people I went to high school with (granted, a lot of that is cause almost half of my HS moved here to ABQ for college, another third went to Las Cruces, and the rest are scattered either still in Socorro or out of state). I think in many ways it will be a good experience for me.
I’ll be moving the farthest away from my parents out of either me or my twin. That alone is a little concerning to them, but I need to finally do something just for me. And that is something I’m having to convince my new roommate of. Both of us have been in relationships of taking care of of family for so long that we have forgotten something very important. And that is how to do something that we know will be best for us and might now make other people very happy.
Right now I’m taking a semester off, and will pick up starting in the fall with A&P1/lab, followed by A&P2/lab. Then it’s going to be me submitting my transcript from CNM and finding out just what they’ll take from my medic school and what I’ll have to retake. I’m betting I’ll have to redo a good portion but it will be good practice if nothing else.
Looking for jobs up there I’ve noticed that if I’m a basic w/ IV skills I can find a job at an urgent care, ER, or on a bus, even if it is doing IFT. But I have no problems working on an IFT truck, since that’s what I did in my first EMS job.
All in all I just want to see what happens. I don’t want too many things planned out because I don’t want my plans to get broken to pieces.
So wish me luck on the written. Thank god I got them to allow me to use my medic practicals in place of the I/85 ones.
