So I suppose I should write something that's meaningful... or at least more than a few words. Perhaps I'm too used to facebook and being brief that I've forgotten how to write more long-winded updates on my life.

Either that or I'm just lazy. I'm going to go with the lazy excuse.

Also, forgive any typos, I'm on my new (old) laptop. My sister got a new one and handed this one down to me. It's useful for writing and random web browsing, which is all I need it for, since my PC is a gaming rig. ...That is going to have to be replaced in February when I get my tax return, I think. Either the RAM is going bad, or the graphics card is, because every so often, especially when I'm running intensive stuff, my screen will turn into horizontal lines and completely freeze up. Google tells me it's likely RAM...but I'd like a new computer anyway. Boris is hitting three years old soon... though that's not as bad as this laptop, which is five.

SO I've been married for four months now, and I really can't believe how happy I am. I never thought I could be this happy. It's like, I can't evenn describe it, but knowing that I'm with a person like Luke is just astonishing. Back in high school and college I had kinda thought that I would never find someone who compliments me so well... And it only took a random computer game to find the love of my life.

We have no plans on having kids, at least not for a while. Years, if at all. Right now he's more open to the kid idea than I am, but only in random spurts. He comes to his senses fairly quickly. We have enough going on with work and three cats that a kid just isn't something we can handle at the moment.

Oh, work...

My doctor wants me to do some physical therapy before I start applying to ambulance districts, as my shoulder has been acting up a LOT lately. He's worried that I'll tear something with all of the lifting before I'm ready... I probably should have gotten physical therapy soon after the car accident, but I was stubborn and didn't think I needed it. Oops.

Right now though, I'm happy that both Luke and I have stable jobs. I'm still doing registration and he's a med tech at the local treatment center. It pays the bills and gets us some extra things... like video games. For my birthday, I got FF9 for the PSP. It makes me happy.

Speaking of games, I'm playing Deus Ex: Human Revolution and it's awesome. The main character is sex appeal in pixel form... saying that makes me feel like I'm in high school again, but it's true. That is a very, very, very beautiful game.

RP-wise, still playing in JC and bitching about it every day. I'd love to find another Star Wars game like SWFL or even SWTA/SWGB. Forums sound fun right now. Maybe a generic fantasy game would be fun too. I want to play a busty barwench who secretly wants to be a knight. Or something super silly like that.

.. I also have a cold. And only one nostril is plugged up. And a half an hour to go before I can take more cold medicine. Yuck.

..Oh. By the way.

So yesterday I took my National Registry EMT practical exam.

Tomorrow I find out how I did.

I was really confident walking out of the testing site, but now I'm starting to second guess myself. On one thing only, really.

Did I remember to give the bleeding control/shock management patient high flow oxygen?

I don't remember.

But I don't remember not giving it to them either.

We'll see tomorrow.

Now....to work for 12 hours!

Whoo! Caught up on [livejournal.com profile] legendland stuff. Off today and tomorrow (Of course, I still have to sleep yet), and Saturday and Sunday are both day shifts-- and I'm gonna be getting 8 hours of overtime this week. Hello, pretty paycheck.

Aced my latest EMT test...granted, it was scene size up, vital signs, and assessment, so nothing too hard, and Tuesday is a pharmacology test(Oh boy! Know the only SIX medicines that EMTs can give!)...

but I'm still absolutely scared to death. When I get my license and get out on the field, I will be helping to save lives. I will be responsible for people. My patients lives in the hands of myself and my partner.

I sometimes wonder what I'm getting myself into.

....Yeeeeeeeah. Considering it's 9:30, I should probably get some sleep.

ALSO. Dexter is made is complete and utter win. So is my new snuggie. ....don't worry, I will never wear it in public.

Friday: 6:45 pm = 6:45 am

...Yeah. Week from hell, anyone? Still, I love my job. A lot.

ALSO! If anyone has a used anatomy & physiology book that they would like to sell, please let me know. That's where I'm struggling the most in class.
