It’s this time of year again! January 19th, two years since I started this blog. Every year I like to look back to see what I have accompli shed. Looking back, I’m satisfied to say that this year has been very productive, a bit stressful and I didn’t get much of a break, but productive.
Here’s a quick timeline of my accomplishments since last year to getting into the ambulance service:
Jan 19 – March 2010
Worked my butt off my last year of undergraduate studies
Did a bunch of volunteer work, some for the olympic winter games
Finished the Bike Patrol Course with SJA
Got OFA3 Certified
Graduated from University
Finished the EMR course and got certified
Got EMR Licensed through the EMALB
Finally had time to procrastinate a little
PCP in-class starts
I know when I first started this blog I wanted to outline the journey from where I was, to working with the ambulance service as paramedic. I guess you can say I “sort of” got to where I wanted to be. However, the journey is far from over, because in this profession the journey never ends, the learning never ends. I still have many more goals yet to achieve (PCP, ACP, and possibly CCP?) and so this blog will keep on rolling.
For the blog’s anniversary, I decided to make an effort to help others who are going through the same journey as me. Hence I started the Questions page, and also posted Got Questions? Need Answers? Hopefully these pages will help others find the information they need to get to where they want to be.
I just want to say thank you to all the readers, and especially those who left comments and had given me advice along the way. This blog has grown immensely because of all of you. Also, I can’t thank my family, friends, and mentors enough (you know who you are), without your support I don’t think I could have gotten to where I wanted to be in such a short period of time. So a big Thank You to all of you!
