Default Whos studying their nuts off?

EMT final tomorrow. Awesomeness.

Final assesments were yesterday. I did pretty well though I was pretty disappointed that it was all medical stuff. Absolutely zero trauma. WTF?

I wouldnt usually be stressed about this, as I know I'll pass but up until I got an 80% on a test last week I had the highest grade in class.

Now I'm being beat by a lady who was already an EMT but let her certification go due to family issues. Shes beating me by like .3%

I'm usually not a competitive asshole like this, but its a grade in a field that I want to work in and one that can actually affect peoples lifes, so I wanna be the best in there. Plus it really helps that our instructor is the guy who does the hiring for our county EMS system. An awesome grade could only help get a job.

So anyone else stressing?

I thoroughly look forward to enjoying a IIPA tomorrow evening after finals.

I hear ya.

It was much easier before the days of cell phones, facebook etc.
Also much easier before I had a child

I cant believe back when I was in high school I thought it was hard to study. What? Peace and quiet?

Congrats on your choice of studies! It's great to hear that you're determined be at the top of your class. Most "over achievers" do indeed get hired on with EMS/FDs. I was always asked,"would you want a medic working on your loved ones if he/she scored a 60-80% in school ?" The easy answer is NO. Those who put thier time into the studying the materials are better prepared for a career in the field.

Best of luck to you! Look up my company when it's time to buy a jump bag

Great news and good luck. I'm not very competitive, but I cherish the time I scored 5th in a fleet-wide exam and the smart-ass chief petty officer didn't make the top 100. I was 2 months out of SOSUS school. He had 16 years of experience. The 1st class in my watch section scored #3. Double whammy.

I'm on my second (or third?) beer and writing essays for job applications. Am I the only one who does better work with a beer in hand? Gets the juices flowing. My brain just works better that way. Although I had something else during my college years that worked much better.

I work best with a beer and a cigar. Too bad I can't have either at work.
