Well, here it is, the night before my practical. I am writing this Notes from a Rookie Firefighter post after our very successful pancake breakfast at our firehouse this morning. Yesterday I spent the day with my captain practicing my knots on some tools, trying to aim my regulator in just the exact spot with my gloves on and my eyes closed. I was out in the bay for awhile and in came one of our newest rookies, who is going to the Academy in a few months. So he hung out with me for about an hour and I didn't seem like so much of a rookie anymore. I'm going to miss my number 5 on my red helmet.

Good luck Denise. I'll miss having someone who knows what they're doing on accountability though, haha.
