      So I sat down to write a journal about how long it takes me to write a journal, bunged open the stopwatch on my phone to time myself, and found this lovely gem: lkdjg%20422_zpsodiiypc5.png

      Alright. Well that's nice. For those of you who can't/won't do the maths, that's a total of 138 days the clock has ran. and upon further inspection, I apparently knew about this because there's photos of when the time was a tad bit lower. lkdjg%20416_zps7zfyhjjx.png

      Oh, past me. You never fail to disappoint the future me. Whats sad is you can see how good I was at keeping my phone charged, and how it slowly slips away to what it is now. Constantly meandering around the 20-30 percent. Meandering is a sold word. I think I'll use it more often.

    • Fire Department Ride-Along

      Hey guys! So on New Years I was able to go on a ride along with the Fire Department (meaning I went on calls and such with them and learned a lot of things) and I thought I'd share the details of my escapade with you guys.

      When I got ready and headed outside the first thing I noticed was the snow on the ground and the car absolutely caked with the stuff. I didn't really think much of it at the time, but looking back on it, it was the first time since I was 7 that I've seen snow. IMG_0618_zpsa17cffc7.jpg IMG_0619_zps6438c57f.jpg
      I worried about the animals in peoples backyards and such because there was snow place to hide.
      Sorry about that pun. Maybe if people weren't so cold I would make more of them. Seriously though, I'll see myself out.

      So when we arrived everyone was gathered around the dining table to do their end of the year paperwork, which was interesting to see. A lot of spreadsheets and printing. We finished at around 10:30 AM, and the cook for the day needed to go to the store to get food, and since he was on the truck, we took the truck to Costco, which was an experience of its own. (There is a squad, engine, and truck. I was on the truck. Squad is the busiest because they handle the all medical calls, to the point where its not unusual those guys don't sleep.)

      Its apparently its a big deal when a fire truck shows up to go shopping for food at a Costco. People managed to un-learn how to drive in a parking lot while we were there. To be fair, I wouldn't blame them. the truck is huge So we went in and people were friendly, talking to us and such, when we got a call on the radio, so we had to jet.

      Without the food.

      Why.

      Anyway, as we were running to get to the truck, there were people taking pictures of their kids next to it, which I thought was cool. Usually if they're little kids and we're not busy we let them sit in the Captains seat (passenger seat in the front) and its a lot of fun. Sadly when we got there, the fun was over and it was time to work.

      I don't know what it is, but something about running red lights and speeding down a busy street, watching people scramble to pull over to the right always excites me. I've been on ride alongs before, and that feeling is always there. Its the best when its freezing cold at night and we're hurtling down the street, lights and sirens blaring, with the horn to convince those who don't want to pull over to move. (Seriously, if you hear sirens, pull over. Everyone is safer that way.)

      So we got there and it was a fire! Sadly though, it wasn't a good one. Just some piddly abandoned building with its roof on fire on the inside. Still awesome though.

      I stayed with the Engineer and he showed me some of the ropes of the hoses and pumping water, it was really cool. Guys cutting holes in the roof with chainsaws, police showed up and I got to talk to them as well, it was a rather nice time.

      After that we went back to Costco, and the exact same thing happened except they cancelled us after we left. We were tired of going back and forth by that time and decided to see the rose bowl floats. I got my picture with them before they actually paraded, and took a photo of some news guy as we left. You probably can find him on TV somewhere. It's a bit blurry because we were in a rush. IMG_0583_zpsb1054d47.jpg

      Later we finally managed to get the food and enjoyed some soup, and that night (night= 10:00 Pm-3:00 AM) we went on a few medical calls, I talked to the EMT guys and more police. All of them were really nice. No photos though. I thought it would be incredibly rude if I was taking pictures of people in/and their houses.

      In the morning before we were relieved from duty we got one last call. It was a fire alarm for a Target. It was a false alarm, but I still got some cool pictures.

      I did leave a lot of stories out, simply because this thing has turned into an essay. Maybe some other time. Anyway, thank you, first journal, New Year, all that good jazz. Anyway, enjoy the rest of the photos. Cheers guys!

        I've been a fan for about 4 years now, and I've always used the site, so its not super new, the only thing that different is that I can communicate with people. And I'm loving it, I wonder why it took me this long to make an account :)
