This is PJ’s sis, kare-kare….. it’s been awhile, I know.
Not to toot my own horn again, but……HOOT HOOT!!! I am graduating from the Sheriff’s academy. This was quite a trip. Where do I begin? I have learned so much. I love shooting a firearm -even the bruises from the shot gun…. (see below)
I met so many nice people, or should I say …future partners? Yes, probably. -I’ve heard once you join…it’s like a family..well once “phase training” is over and you’ve bought your share of doughnuts and starbucks. -I will find my place.
I can honestly say I know a different language….it’s foreign. Not the kind you’re thinking of…you know spanish, french of the sorts…no it’s – “why are their hands in their pockets?” or “I have a 10-16″ I am already thinking differently. It happens and I embrace it with open arms.
My graduation is in less than 2 days and I am thrilled. For a second I wished I could stay in the academy -that could be my career, right? …I am comfortable. I know what is expected and I do it. I can do the push ups, I can do the runs, I can smile…everyone knows me.
I love this quote by John Maxwell, “If we’re growing, we’re always going to be out of our comfort zone.”
This. Is. Me.
I did fire training. Fun.
My Dad will give me my badge. My sister is home. I have a “recession proof” career. Life is good!
