9:12pm: sooo long
well now once again i have slacked on updating this deal. since the last blurty plenty more has happened. two days after updating the blurty, my company held the mock DUI accident for the pre-prom deal. hopefully kids get the picture but who knows...i had fun working with everyone. that morning i had an exam so nonetheless i jumped outta bed 15 minutes before it and left to take it. eating nothing for breakfast! after the exam which i didnt hafta take becuase I had an A in the class....i hauled ass outta there and to the firehouse. during the accident deal, i had felt a little dizzy and shaky so i backed off for a little figuring it was just because i hadnt really slept or ate anything. after the mock accident we went back to the station and had a barbeque. so i ate lunch and went home to sleep for a while since we had drill later that night. i took a nice long ass nap and woke up just in time for drill. at drill we were doing the burn trailer and so i first said i wasnt going to go in because i still didnt feel good. well after watching everyone i packed up and went in.....then a second time, well shit hit the fan. i passed out and ended up being carried out of the trailer and then transported to the hospital because i didnt know what happen and i couldnt breathe. i laid in the ER for two hours only to learn that i was out of service until cleared by the doctor because i was freaking dehydrated. obviously, most of you dont understand what this meant to me and how much it killed.....it meant for a solid week i could not step foot into my turnout gear and onto a fire truck!!!! tears.....but the quack doctor was a real smartass. he says to me everytime i see your type i tell em before they go into a burning building to drink a quart of gatorade. haha how bout noooooooo! anyways other than that i'm working at my dad;s company this summer and its actually not tooo bad. it just sux having to work 40 hrs a week.
on other news, i got my grades back from this semester and holy shyt i shocked myself. 3 A's and 2 B's with a 3.6 GPA. quick impressive esp coming from me who proscrastinated the whole semester!
house-sititng was nuts last week with shannon! hahah cant forget saturday night.....the ppics just tell it all. staying up with b til 7 in the morning watching the ends of half baked and bebes kids and the ring. shannon spilling the beer bong on herself....whacked ass game of kings cup...passing out for an hour...kenny jumpin on me...shannon puking out...bea hanging out and getting trashed.....hahaha too many good times..
well thats all for now....ill try and update it soon

20th April 2004

11:07pm: well its been a while since ive updated the blurty so i decided that i should since soooo much has happened. lets see where to begin....
i recently went to arizona to visit my sis and her hubby but to also look at arizona state university. OMG i wanna go there sooooo bad!! its amazing out there but i def would miss everyone here esp my grls and the boys. but im going to try and see if i can get into asu for spring semester next year. hey it never hurts to take chances or try new things. the weather was so "clean" and gorgeous out there. surprisingly, i wasn't too bored either because we were always doing something or there was always something to do.
other news:
well like forever ago, the boyfriend and i broke up....and surprisingly i wasnt that upset. he cheated on me with a grl from trainer and then lied to me. hmmm hes obviously stupid but thats a whole other issue. i dont think he ever realized that i have like quite a few good "brothers" that dont like it when ppl hurt me.(lol thnx boys ILY) one other thing, boys id like to hear your input on this question: why do guys seem to get all flustered when you ask grls if they were mad or upset that you cheated on them? honestly is it really that hard to understand why we are flipping upset! sorry i was little heated about that subject.
hmmmm...the other night, my fire company had an outing at shady maple smorgasboard in lancaster; i was a little late since i had an ambulance call but it was good i had some good chats with floebe, who i havent hung out with in forever(cant forget the country singer quiz: im getting there :) ). it was a good time at the restaurant as well, everyone got to mix and mingle with their families and friends. but one of the horrific migraines seemed to have come on that day so i was in a shytty mood. i passed EVOC, o boy thats a scary thought...ill be driving the firetrucks in a few years. :) it was a fun time tho, i spent some quality time with joe....hahaha too many blonde moments those days.
today was so beautiful outisde!! i luv this weather and cannot wait for summer.....and house-sitting. i saw my two of my boys today who i hadnt seen in forever....."are you following me?!?!" aww i miss the good ol' times with them :( i wish we still had what we had a few years ago and this past summer...but i still luv the memories! and i got to see my floebe...hehe what would i do without you buddy? thanks for everything! and keiser!
well thats all for now...maybe more later if not tomorrow.

9:47pm: Brotherhood


From my point of view, theres no right or wrong way of defining brotherhood. The fire service, as a whole, defines brotherhood as having an infinite number of brothers and sisters wherever you go, whenever you need them; as well as, people who band together when one piece of this family falls whether they know them or not. Its something that is so incredible that there will never be one true definition. It will never be a perfect thing since even in blood related families "brothers and sisters" always have their ups and downs, therefore even our brotherhood will have ups and downs for each of its relationships. Even though company A may not like company B for an amount of time, there will always be in the back of their minds the thought that if something may happen to anyone in either company they know they will let down their grudges and help their "brothers and sisters" out. For each company, brotherhood holds yet a similar but so unique sense of definition that you seem to be amazed each time you encounter a different fire company. I've seen so many individual bands of brotherhood that prove each company, although it does the same service, is as unique as each day that dawns upon us.

For my own definition of brotherhood, I believe its knowing that I have infinite number of brothers, "second" fathers, uncles, and grandfathers that I would not want to give up in any lifetime. Its knowing that wherever I may go that I know I have someone that will be there for me if the need arises. Brotherhood is knowing that I have so many protectors that I have no worries if something goes wrong or I need help with any type of problem whether it be school, family, work, relationships, friends, or even other brothers. With the brothers, "second" fathers, uncles, and grandfathers that have enlightened me in so many ways, I don't think I could ever truly thank them or return the favor since there will never be enough thank yous in the world

1:12am: well since its been a while since the last entry, this one's gonna be a long one. lets see where to start....
im finally done emt, i thought that class was never going to end. but im gonna miss it. too many laughs were had in that class. good luck with all you do everyone!
the holidays are over finally....those were pretty fun! i was in disney world for christmas. that was a blast! on christmas day, the boyfriend and his fam were flying down to begin their vaca there. we planned to meet up at magic kingdom but since it was closed becuase it got filled to capacity we couldn't. so i had to leave my fam and head over to epcot to meet up with his. it was so nice to spend the day with him. their friends from england were a blast to be around too. we were standing in line for a ride and the wait was two hours so we were talking and jane said to me how did you guys meet and i had said at a fire(cheyney university nov. 15) and she was like "aww it was love over flames instead of love at first sight." too funny! then her and mrs king asked how long we had been together and kev answered a month.....it seems longer than that tho. i left for home the next day and it sucked not being able to spend more time down there. but my 'rents did buy a condo down there so thats all good. after driving two long days, we were finally home and i got to see my sis and her hubby since they were in from arizona. it was good to catch up with her since i havent really tlaked to her because of the busyness i had this semester. she passed all her finals and had a gpa of 4.0....needless to say i was a little jealous but i did receive my grades and they werent too bad considering i carried 24 credits. new years eve was pretty fun i got to chill with my grls lindsy and shannon.....o boy we do have some fun times: "did you buy and put liquor freeze in there?", wathcing the pron director with mom(too funny), and me falling the down the steps. it sucked not having the boyfriend up here for new years but he still called at midnight!
lets see what else has happened. i went down to the university of maryland to visit my cousin and her boyfriend. we went to visit her boy toy at fairfax county fire department then to dinner. i spent the night down there but it sucked cause they werent having a party since all the boys were working but she said she let me know when the next one is.
im dreading to start classes again but its a fact of life. at least im not taking 24 credits this semester. but i do hafta take vehicle rescue, truck company ops, Fire 1 nationals, and fire 2, so ill still be overloaded but not as bad. im quite excited.
well enough updating all of you for now...be back soon....

10:55pm: ahh what a long week~
hmm lets see where to start....
turkey day~ ahh what a good day. vball with the fam and lots of talking in the am...i luv going to st.ed's and chatting with the fam over donuts and vball games. so many pics were taking at such an early hour. my fam didnt eat until 7 since the pops had to work, which sucked but someone has to make the money. my crazy aunt and her fam were here for dinner. i ate and then headed over to kevins to meet his fam and what not. fun times...then we went out for a lil. i got to see my linds and shannon for a few...so exciting cuase i missed my linds!
friday~ completely caught up on my sleep, which was def needed. i did a lil hw and then headed to workout at the firehouse for a smidge. that night the 'rents left for annapolis, wha wha. went to kevins for a lil and then got a dispatch for a working building fire. i was pissed since i didnt have my car but kevin went on a call and let me take his truck. i got to the scene and did a secondary search on the first floor and then overhauled with my longwood boys on the fire floor. o wat a fun time! i had to stay at my sis's house that night due to a lil incident that happened the week before. not a prob tho since i had to wake up and go to the airport anyways. well saturday morning came and my freakin sister didnt make her fligth so i had to wait for until 3 before i could go to annapolis for sum good food. no worries tho because i got to spend time with both of my sisters on the way to annapolis since there was mad traffic. visited the fam down there and ate sooo much good food that i slept the whole way home. when i got back in the area i called brian since it was his bday to wish him a good one.
sunday i spent pretty much the whole day with kevin. we went to church(he called and asked me to go, shocker) and then we went to lunch with his buddy mike. i actually watched the whole eagles game too and they won! we watched some more football but i fell asleep for a lil.
monday was a long day too. i had the funeral for my aunt mary( you're a divine angel now...its been your calling) and all the cousins stayed together. the luncheon proved to be quite interesting. my fam seems to be quite the gossipers as well as gabbers. we were there forever but no worries cause it was fun to reminisce and chat with the cousins. haha ily guys! i got to talk with my uncles and we chatted about different war stories of the fire service and i saw claymonts trucks.
the rest of this week was pretty blah since classes are basically over except for finals.....wooo! thank god tho because college is quite the stress causing thing in life.
tonight was horrible! i learned you cant always trust the ones you love and are related too. a good friend told me of a situation which involved myself and some other ppl that i didnt know about. im glad she called in concern for me and thinking that i should know about it. ILY squatter! some people need to realize where the line should be drawn when talking with other ppl.....such as personal life matters!!!!!!!!!! and then have the nerve not to step up and realize that they were at fault for the madness that occured. it makes me wonder why some people talk about other peoples live?...hmmm maybe could it be that they are a little jealous or want other people's so-called friends to be upset? i dunno its ridiculous. this world is full of ppl that are jealous and that take their angerness or upsetness oout with other peoples situations. i thought i could trust you and the fact that we never talked about it fully makes me even more ANGER and UPSET. i guess this friendship should either end or there should be a break taken.
for those involved: life goes on. tru friends stick by each other and support each other not freaking try and break them down. thanks i really appreciate it and to think i called you tru friends.

18th November 2003

2:33pm: whoa what an exhausting weekend! ill give ya a lil recap: well friday night i had emt and it was my midterm retake, which with the grace of god i passed. so excited! then i get home and im about to relax when we get an accident with entrapment. since 90% of the boyz were up at penn state, i had to respond. it wasnt too bad...we had oxford fire company, chester county station 21 covering so they went responding too.
saturday~ i had emt all day which was pretty fun. it was all different scenarios...pretty interesting id hafta say. plus i found out i could take my final burn the next day which was pretty f*ckin exciting for me! well i get home and eat dinner when we get dispatched for a building at cheyney university. i responded and i ended up waiting for the 2nd truck since we needed a crew for that. wait till you hear this craziness, fireboard tells our asst. chief that its an alarm tripped by the sprinkler so the chief says recall the assignment. not 30 seconds later, does fireboard tell our cheif psp on location reporting working room in contants fire.....i was mad i didnt go on the first truck but i rode the seat on the tower! then i was interior command while the crews were cleaning up. but it was all in good intent! then we get back to the station and i stayed and chatted with the brookhaven crews since they were covering us saturday night. i found out that ryan and kevin were both doing their final burn the next day, so i was glad that i would know someone.
sunday~ final burn baby! i was so excited. i ended up not being in kevin or ryans group since they put all the come-backs in a group together. the only grl in that group, wha wha. anyways, the first evolution i started freaking myself out inside but i finished it. when i got out i had like ten ppl trying to help me take my pak and mask off and then for some unknown reason i broke down crying. sean took me aside and calmed me down, he allowed me to walk with crystal for a lil. i think i jsut got nervous since it was my first time in a burn building but ive been over that air pak a million times. so who knows....im glad i stuck it out though. after taking a walk, sean went over my air pak with me and then reassured me that nothing would happen because on each floor was either mikey, kenny, or lil b which made me feel like so much more comfortable. im glad i have brothers that watch out for me. he also said he would have mikey shadow me while i was in the building in case anything happened. ILY guys! i didnt really get to see ryan or kevin all day but i ate lunch with kevin. i finished out the day with no other problems and i was so freakin proud to go home and tell my dad, who was a nervous wreck since floebe wasnt working that day, that i did it! i got home and i was beat...my knees are so bruised and the one has a huge like abrasion type wound on it. but it was all for a good thhing! later that night after i showered and ate dinner, i went out with kevin....ahhh so excited! we went to see the movie elf! it was a cute movie!
o wells all is good! hope everyones staying safe!

11:35am: hey sunshines! well its freaking windy as anything outside right now. but anyways today's going pretty good. i'm looking to transfer schools since neumann sux. but oh well, im looking at alvernia college and west chester. i would give anything to go to arizona state university but my dad isnt liking that idea too much so i settled for a pa school instead. i like alvernia even though its like neumann but its far enough away from home but still close so i can visit and come back if needed. also at alvernia i wouldnt hafta pay for room and board because reiffton fire company offers a live-in program there so im liking that idea. i spoke with the captain in reference to it and we are going to chat again in more detail about it. so im happy!
as for other news, i hate being sick! im so worn out and it sux. i cant do anything without coughing. on tuesday, we did a rescue demo at the high school for the emergency care class and i had the tool....o boy do my arms hurt. plus it didnt help that we were short manned either but i dragged floebe along even though it was his bday.(HAPPY BDAY hun).
im scared for tomorrow night as well. i hafta retake two of the three practicals for my EMT midterm. so nervous and i dont know why, this should be second nature to me. im starting to think maybe i should just stick to the fire service and let my dad do the EMS work. but at least im trying and making my dad proud.
well i need to go and study BADDDDD since i havent gone to history in a week. luv u all and have a super day!
