Membership certificate in Epsilon Pi Phi

Membership certificate in Epsilon Pi Phi

It’s been a while since I’ve stopped by here. I’ve been little busy, truth be told, with school and just life. I never did get that story written with the Story Cubes, but I’ve accomplished something that I never did in high school: I made a national honor society. I am a member of Epsilon Pi Phi, which is the honor society for emergency management programs, as of this year. I was so excited! I’m holding a 3.7 GPA and I’ve got about a year to go for my BA degree. Then on to a Master’s in Public Administration, I think.

I’ve been walking my  feet off at Target. I bought myself a FitBit Zip a couple of months back, and have learned that I average about a mile an hour around the store. In other words, I walk between 5 and 8 miles in an average work day. Considering that I did about that much in a month over the past 15 years, I’m working hard. No wonder I come home so tired after a shift!

And, starting the week of Aug 17, I will be taking classes to get an EMT license. If the stars align right, I’ll be able to get a job working as an EMT sometime after the first of the year. I’d like to get into emergency services so that I can gain some experience in a field that applies to my degree.

That’s about it for now. Time to go finish up finals paperwork for Pre-1600 World Lit and Forestry classes.
