    I play varsity football, drive a racecar, hunt, fish, ride 4 wheelers, and study to become a better FF.
    These are my opinions, not those of my career department, my volunteer company, or my affiliates. And by the way, I'm not a Junior.

    Buy me a drink, sing me a song, take me as I come 'cause I can't stay long.

    Well, I'm a programmer, I enjoy programming applications, and doing minimal webdesign. I don't care for sports, because I'm not big for competition.. Bowling is fun though. My family sucks at it so if we even get a 5 pins, were lucky . I enjoy third riding, and thats what most of my time is spent doing, whether it be fire, or EMS. I run the local EMS Explorer post, and that gives me a few hours per week of things that I need to do. But something that comes before everything else is seeing my family, and doing my school work... which now includes having an annex of my Explorer Post at school, with pagers, and being able to go to the call if its at school. We had 6 last year, I made 2 of them.

    I do a lot.

    Along with FireFighting, I spend time with my girlfriend, I used to play football and ski, but I dislocated my knee a couple years back, hoping that I can return to skiing this winter. I drive, hang out with my friends, post on this website. School is going to take up a lot of my life in a couple of weeks. I love to go to concerts as well.

    There is a lot of things, those I guess are the big ones.

    I haven't posted in these forums in a while, but since this is a great opportunity to get a look into the lifestyle's of other junior/explorer/ cadets, i figured I'd give you a look into "A day in the life of a SARfreak"

    0530-Wake up, shower, get dressed
    0600-cleaning stations
    0650-Stand morning personal and room inspection
    0730-MoFo (morning formation) on the parade field
    0800-1515- classes, trying not to **** of any professors or upperclass, lunch if time permits.
    1530-1800- sailing practice (mon, wed)/ search and rescue (tue, thurs)
    1800-1900- shower, dinner, free time
    1900- more cleaning stations/ band (tue, thurs)
    2000-2230- mandatory study hours
    2230-taps
    2300-lights out (rarely observed), ironing/polishing/cleaning room for next morning's inspection

    ffdfireexplorer:

    MA maritime academy. Good school, but its a standard military academy... regimented in everything and freshmen only get liberty on the weekends. Can't beat the training anywhere. As part of seamanship training, we take classes in survival, safety, shipboard firefighting, lifeboatmanship, and other stuff that keeps classes interesting. If you want more information, PM me.
