Long time no blog

Well first and foremost I have to apologize for my absence from blogging. According to my boss what I do in my day is important to people. If you ask me I think the jury is still out. But she has given me the great opportunity to have this position as an ambassador so I kind of owe her. Also there is the fact that she can bring in a younger, better looking replacement in at anytime means there is no room for error. Anyways I have been pretty busy as of late in my life. This last term I have been going through what very well be the most demanding, challenging class I ever take. Being a paramedic student while also having 3 jobs has opened my eyes to the world of coffee, sleepless nights, and creative story making for the bags under my eyes. I always won in these stories, and they usually included me saving a baby from a wild animal. Believable I know. So as of late I have been attending class, pulling 72 hour shifts on and 72 hour shifts partially off at the fire station, and working part time at Bay Cities Ambulance Company. I am grateful for the busy schedule but it has gotten a little overwhelming. Trying to find peace in the chaos has become harder to do. I think now that I have an idea of what I need to do as far as the academics side of things goes this term should be much more structured for me. I haven’t been able to help the ambassador program out very much as late but I should be making up for that these next two terms. In other news today is my birthday. I am officially 22 years old and already receiving the old man jokes from my peers. So as is tradition I have had my eye on a cane at the 24 hour Wal-Mart across the street for a couple weeks now. Luckily it is close to the vitamin isle where I can find some Glucosamine which I hear is good for joints. I would say that I am adjusting well to this new me. Well until next time everyone, I hope you all had a great holiday season, and have cheated on your New Years diet at least once because let’s face it all those cookies and left over fudge still need some loving.
