Well, I have been given the word that (barring any unforeseen circumstances) I will be “going solo” as of July 7th! This is what I have worked for and prayed for over the past 6 months. What a satisfying accomplishment! My training has had it’s ups and downs, but lately things have just “clicked” for me, and my trainer has really noticed that.
I have a ride-along scheduled with the fire department/paramedics for this Thursday, and then Friday I change shifts to start graveyard. That will be a big change for me, a morning person! But who knows, it might just work for me. It will be a totally new experience, whatever the outcome.
When I am solo, my shift will be swing shift. That will also be new – but I think it will allow me to have time to spend with my daughter and take care of her activities this summer. Here’s hoping. And I will try to keep up better with this blog. I know I haven’t been posting as often as I would like, or as often as I think about wanting to post something.
So this next month will be exciting -the challenge of switching shifts, and the anticipation of seeing my training come to an end. But then, if I am honest, I will probably never stop learning or training. There’s always change, and always the need to grow and adapt to that change. This past 6 months have taught me that very clearly! 🙂
