- State Job

Well, I've been a paramedic with Louisiana DOC for about 2 months now, and I am not impressed. Although I find the expanded medical practice extremely satisfying and rewarding. Jumping through all the bureaucratic hoops is starting to drive me nuts. Add in the 1.5 hour commute? Eccchhh....

Extended practice
POST certification
free certs/recerts
I can tell someone "NO"

Shitty pay
Spend a lot of time cooped up in the ER

New Hotness:

I put in my application. Let's see what happens.

PS - everyone still alive? Drop me a comment, folks.

Wow, cool link. You'll definitely have to update more if you get the job! :)

Chance, I am alive. Alive with a new, still boring blog. I watched Dirty Work the other day, and when Don Rickles called Artie Lange 'baby gorilla', I thought of you.

Admit it, you've missed me.

Are you freaking kidding me? You want to work in Saudi Arabia???
Dude, have you lost your mind?

I didn't click on the link... Maybe it's porn and I shouldn't worry about your transferring that far out of State!

Bureacratic hoops, shitty pay and a 90 minute commute. The rewards of being a lifesaver are endless...
