Just got home from my last shift. Last night I sat down and re-read everything that I had written in the past. Now I sit here with my iPad in front of me wondering where to begin. I honestly don't have a clue. So much has happened in the last two years it's rather daunting when I stop to thnk about it. I also took the opportunity to look over my reading list of other bloggers. It seems that I'm not the only one who's been MIA, several others have stopped writing as well. Be that as it may, I wish them well in their endevours.

Over the past 2 years I've seen a lot of changes, both in myself and in EMS. Personally, my daughter was born, I've gotten divorced, met someone else and fallen in love again, gained hopefully a little wisdom in both of those areas but by no means am I an expert in either. Professionally, I'd have to say the same. The fundamentls havent changed but ive seen two total protocol changes, lots of meds have left and new ones hace taken their place and the same with equipment. I'm considered a senior medic now with my service, only 3 others on my shift have more time in. I'm still teaching and I still love it. I've found a definite calling in being an instructor. It seems as though I'm fairly decent at it, if you take the students and staff comments and add in pass rates. I've also participated in 2 state and regional paramedic competitions, I'll be writing about those experiences later on.

All in all, I feel like I've hit my stride in life. Sure, there are still quite a few things on my list of stuff I want to accomplish, but I'm a little more patient now and all things come to those who wait, or sonthy say. Till next time...


Long time coming

Wow, it's been a long time since I've even taken a look at this blog. For whatever reason I've been thinking about it for the last few days. So today I read through all of my old posts and had a little reflection time. Thinking about all that has happened in the past few years. I reckon I might try this writing thing again and see how it goes.
