On the plus side, I tested out on the single person 24ft extension ladder raise yesterday and I made it in 2:01 and the time limit is 2:20. The extension and roof ladder are on the same rack, you have to take the roof ladder off and put it out of the way and get the ext. ladder off the rack and onto your shoulder, walk about 25 feet then turn right around a cone, walk it to the building and set it down, then walk it up and do everything to extend it, then say the whole “4 pts of contact dogs are locked halyard tied proper climbing angle” shpeal. I haven’t even done it 10 times so I’m still figuring out what works for me and getting the muscle memory down. By state test day I want it up in well under 2 minutes.
And another thing, there is a problem when we get shown for the first time how to do three of the POs the week before the last week. And every time we do practice on one of the POs we know, its a different instructor showing us how to do it a different way every time.
God this is such bullshit.
There is a problem when only one person out of the entire class passes a performance objective. I don’t think its a student fault there but an instructor fault. Plus only being shown once and not told what NOT to do on the ladder with certain tools and then forcing us to test on it two weeks later without a refresher and getting mad at us for failing is wrong. Yesterday was our second time working off of the ladder, you can’t expect us to test properly if we haven’t even done the whole objective individually before. Thanks to your bullshit teaching, more than half of the class only has two more tries on passing that PO and if not then they fail out.
Good job certain instructor.
Someone’s probably in love with you right now, even though you think you’re boring and stupid and smell bad most of the time, someone probably saw you last week and wiped their sweaty hands on the insides of their pockets and thought about your body under your clothing and about how you would look asleep in their bed

Such a strong reminder of why living in the moment is so important.
So I was in EMT class and we were learning about trauma and our instructor started talking about MAST pants and she said that they were inflatable pants
and I started laughing and nobody else was
When your patient starts crowning.
I literally have been laughing at this gif for the longest time now- caption fits perfectly with it 😂👌
I’m so ready for fire school to be done. 8 more weeks 8 more weeks 8 more weeks! The day class is brutal, I’m getting worn down and I started getting sick this morning but I took some meds and stuff and chugged OJ, it helped. We were outside all day today, only went inside to go to the bathroom. I got dehydrated along with a few others because we didn’t get a lot of breaks and someone started having chest pain at one point and was dizzy and throwing up as well. I’m ready to be done so I can pretty much live at the station and finally do what makes me happy.
