Welcome to my first blog. I have never written anything like this before, never wrote in journals, articles, stories or anything.
I have toyed with the idea of writing a blog for some time, but I’m just a regular guy with no special powers or abilities, I’m not rich. I’m not an inventor, not an owner of a business, I dont own a website, I’m not promoting anything, who would want to read my blog? Is it just going to be a waste of time? I guess we will find out.
I have been a Paramedic for 8 years going on 9 coming 2019 and a Firefighter for 6 in a community in Alberta Canada. I’ve read on reddit (where I finally got the idea to push through and set up a Blog while reading some AMA’s) that people Blog, even if they have no readers to help de-stress, or to just help their mental health overall.
The stress of being a Paramedic varies day to day as you can imagine, and it builds up over time. High acuity calls, the stress in the office, co workers, dispatch, management.
Maybe writing a blog will help. That’s what I’m going to tell myself anyways.
So what am I going to Blog about?
Well I’m told I can write about anything in a Blog, no borders, no restrictions, just whatever. Blog like it’s a journal a fellow redditor told me. So here we are.
Games. Yes I like those in all forms.
Work. That’s where most of my complaints originate. And where all the stuff happens that I’m sure everyone is itching to read about.
Movies. Sure why not. I watch a lot of those.
I’ve seen and done a lot of things in the 8 years of being a Paramedic, will I write about past experiences or calls ? I dont know. Maybe I just want to start with this blog and move forward.
I called this Blog “A day in the life of a Paramedic” I might change the title later on depending on how things turn out. But for now. That’s what were going to work with.
