  • Just wanted to celebrate a little!!

    I am finally past the hardest parts of the Academy!! It is 18 weeks total and I was a little anxious about the middle portion of it (defensive tactics, firearms even though I have experience there, and evoc). Once I relaxed I was finally able to pass the cone course, but I'll admit it was hard to learn to "trust the techniques" so to speak.

    Five weeks to go We graduate 12/16!

    Congrats. EVOC was quite possibly my favorite week of the academy. Are you allowed to PIT where you are? In San Diego it's a no go.

      Iirc only if you've had the training (which we obviously don't get in basic mandate)

            The sheep generally do not like the sheepdog. He looks a lot like the wolf. He has fangs and the capacity for violence. The difference, though, is that the sheepdog must not, cannot and will not ever harm the sheep. Any sheepdog who intentionally harms the lowliest little lamb will be punished and removed.

            I Am the Sheepdog.

            the monsters and the weak." - Michael Marks

                Ha! Noted. I will be eating turkey and hanging with my kids til graduation I'm not the type to go wild.

                With one exam left, even if I just get the minimum passing score (which I won't) I'll have top academic. I'm not sure how they calculate top gun, it is between me and the #2 academic guy. (He and I are also having a friendly Biggest Loser type competition since we are the slowest runners of the group).


                Pretty much we have a ton of Investigations... SFST... And radar. Then graduation!!!

                I was handed a job offer/contract 2 days ago and since it was at a department on my top choice list I jumped on it

                      Today, I graduated.

                      I stood shoulder to shoulder with 5 other cadets who are now my brothers. I cried a little. (I was the only one who cried, but hey, I was the only girl left standing, so...).

                      I was honored to receive one of the two scholarships given each class. I also was honored to receive the Academic Achievement award and the Top Gun Award. I couldn't have done it without my family, my classmates, and my amazing instructors. I am also proud to say that I busted my *** for every bit of it and I earned it.

                      I start work tomorrow night at 1945. I'm excited, I'm terrified. I miss my classmates. I miss my instructors. I'm not sure a day will go by that I won't remember these last 18 weeks with fondness (except OC and TASER, no fondness there). But, now comes the next chapter.

                      Wish me luck!
