Thanx for the invite!.......oh and don't quit school, I'm kinda in the same boat as you. I recently took the written firefighter exam and still attending school but not stopping bcuz you just never know what kind of change may happen in your later future. Keep up the good work, I know its hard now but you"ll thank yourself and be proud later on. Good luck, take care & have a great weekend!!!
