This Tuesday it my last day of EMT school. I remember the first day we started and everything in the middle is somewhat of a blur. Unsurprisingly as classes are 5 hours long.
I have been studying for final, although not as hard I usually do as the class really isn’t too difficult. Within 46 chapter quizzes, I found time to watch about 3 movies on HBO this weekend: The Last Mimsy, Confirmation, and season 5 of Veep.
Kerry Washington received an Emmy nomination for her portrayal of Anita Hill which prompted me to watch the film. Yeah, she definitely deserved it.
Tuesday night I am going out with a couple of friends after the final to celebrate graduating EMT school and on Wednesday I will be going downtown for wine night.
Following that I will be taking a trip to visit my best friend who invited me on his business trip to Atlanta. When he first asked me, my automatic response was, “I can’t. I have to study.” But I caught myself. For the first time in 23 years, I don’t have to worry about school or completing an assignment. I’ve also never had a friend invite me like this on a trip. It’s so…spur of the moment. I feel like an adult for the first fucking time in my life.
I really need this. Tuesday needs to come and go as quickly as the last 3 months have. My brain needs to take a break…one that lasts more than just a weekend.
I am ready to close this chapter of my life.
