It could be just my experience but I felt like any health risks I was exposing myself to wasn't worth it. There's definitely safer/healthier ways to build up lung strength/cardio endurance.

    You should've stayed your ordinary course and not chimed in.

    After six months on the forum I had a moment of weakness, must be the stress from awaiting a run letter

    No problem, but I'm not going to lie, I'm not very optimistic.

    What safer/healthier ways are referring to pertaining to lung strength and endurance

    I will not blame me not getting in onn them recycling, why not blame it on EMS recycling or Oc recycling...the FDNY seems to take the seal military aproach to there training, which is we will not kick you out you we have to quit...if u slip and break your ankle on a run and have to recyde am I supposed to think your a scumbag? Cuz there was a guy who recycled twice because of that very reason. if they dont reach me this class then I could only be mad at myself for not getting a better score...typos are from my autocorrect

    Seriously KremeCheeze,,,, you should not be voicing those feelings when us 6019ers have been screwed over the last 7 years waiting for our FIRST opportunity,,, when people are getting their third and fourth chance......I can only hope and pray those ppl can sleep comfortably at night when they lay their heads on their pillows.

    and what makes you think that me my brother and my cousin weren't on the 6019 also? moral of the story is the beef is with the city and not with the individuals, and if we make it an us vs them thing how will that work out if we all get on and have to work together?

    Annddddd off the tracks we go again. Come on guys, we all know how we feel about the situation. Leave it at that. In other news;

    Waiting eagerly for an email. Have the girlfriend over cooking for me and I'm sippin' on some red wine. A letter tonight would be the icing on the cake.

    I am not going to say whether or not John is a racist. I don't know him... But I can tell he is frustrated with how things are currently being processed. A lot of us have been waiting for year's to get our shot at the academy only to be derailed by some political BS. Now, we have to standby and watch guys who did not do as well on exams be given a shot.
    Congrats dude. You got my blood boiling. Never did I say it was not a real word! I simply stated that it is redundant. Racism is racism. Or is that something only one ethnicity has claim to? "Were treated unfairly in the past" so I suppose that racism no longer exists. That's it all wiped out. Wake the &$@# up! Damn! If you are ****ed at the judge, yeah so am I. Guess what. I should have been in the 6019 class as well but I was deployed and had to defer. Things happen. Does whining about it help? And read some of his previous comments and perhaps you can discern whether or not he is a racist.

    Awesome man, congrats!. It seems that they may have held onto your spot for a letter because no one else down the list has gotten anything. That was oddly considerate of them. Instead of sticking you with the next wave they must have waited until your paperwork cleared and than gave the OK. I wonder how that works...

    I hope to see you in January chad.
