Anonymous said: how would you describe how things have changed for you over the past year?

I spent the better part of this year earning my paramedic’s license. Before, I was doing basic nonemergency facility transports as an EMT. This Thursday, I start my first day of work as an EMT-P, doing emergency calls and functioning in a scope of practice that I had no understanding of last year. I’m very excited, but extremely nervous and anxious. I’m finally getting thrown into the deep end. Starting a new job is anxiety-inducing enough, but, with these kind of stakes, it’s an all new kind of scary. 

I met a beautiful girl that I somehow convinced to love me. She treats me incredibly well, and I’ve never been in a healthier relationship than I am right now. Just writing this little paragraph here has managed to put a big, stupid smile on my face.

My relationship with my dad and his girlfriend have improved greatly. We get along wonderfully and hardly fight anymore. His girlfriend moved in this year, and, we butted heads at first, but it’s all going swimmingly now, all things considered.

I feel like I’ve gotten a little better grasp on my depression than I did last year. I’m medicated, and I don’t mind getting out of bed in the morning. Last year was difficult for me, and I’m proud of myself for the leaps and bounds I’ve made since. I like myself, I’m pretty content with my life, and I feel like I’m where I need to be. My drinking is still a little out of control, but, I’m hoping that my new job will give me a little more of a sense of purpose. 

I feel like my life might be a little stagnant right now, since I’m out of school and stopped working a couple weeks ago. Everything is about to change, though. I have good vibes about this new job. 

Next year, I want to be in an apartment by myself. Jade will be finishing up college then, and we’ll talk about moving in together. Most of all, that’s what I’m looking forward to. 

Thanks for asking, anon. Sorry if it was kinda long.

why do jellyfish only sting when theres physical contact

why doesnt the electricity just surge throughout the entire ocean

why dont jellyfish rule the world

Fun fact!  Jellyfish don’t use electricity to sting you.  Whenever they feel pressure against their tentacles, it causes its cells to rapidly send out these stingers into your skin that then release its venom.  Like this:
