well, after the orientation for college, i found out theres alot of stuff i have to do to get ready for college. some being i have to rent my PPE, which is pretty hard, seeing as i had to find a time when my dad could measure me, and then had to try to find my size on this website im renting, so i had to call the guy, and hes like yeah,, i have something close to that, so now im waiting on a call back from him, and the total PPE ensemble to rent for 40 weeks is like $865, expensive! and i have to buy my uniform, another 200. take a background check, another 50 bucks, oh, and i had to take a Compass test, which i took yesterday, and passed! so glad about that. and mix with all that stuff and working 40+ hours a week is pretty brutal! but to tell you the truth, i wouldnt have it any other way, Firefighting is what i love, what ive wanted to do since i was little, and im not going to let anything stop me, no matter what it takes, im going to pass, with God's help that is!
