THIS IS A REALLY FUCKING ACCURATE TORTOISE IMPRESSIONS OKay
this is i m p o r t a an t
My boyfriend just showed this to me on The Chive. I love it.
am i turtle enough for the turrrrtle club
So I took my final exam this evening for my EMT-Basic class. I completed 200 questions in about an hour. I improved on my time from the midterm which is exciting! I know taking a test quickly doesn’t account for much, but I feel, if I went quickly, it is because I felt confident in my answers, so I do use it as a measure of how I did.
I only had to skip over and return to 10 questions…so that too is a good sign.I am going to wager I got an 80 or better…I am keeping a positive outlook on it.
Now I just need to worry about my Practical Exam on the 15th…If I can’t hold meaningful traction for…well, as long as it takes….I will fail my partner and make myself look incapable of filling the requirements for the job, even though bothering with traction, manual and/or mechanical is rarely done in the field (or so I am told anyway) It is a requirement for the National EMT-B Exam.
Other than traction, I feel fairly confident in my assessment and operation of the tools of the trade.
Though my one gripe is the lack of focus on taking and interpreting Vital Signs. As far as I can tell, that is one of the most basic and fundamental skills of an EMT…we had one practical station…once….So that is on my mind. Although I don’t think I will need to take actual vitals for the practical exam…I feel like passing, and then being put into the field without a muscle memory reaction to what I am finding, is going to be an issue.
Anywhoooo, I will keep ya updated as soon as I know how I graded. :0)

Wonderful long exposure photographs taken by astronaut Don Pettit. While there are many photos like these taken from the perspective of the Earth’s surface, Pettit’s images are unique in that they incorporate the passing blur of entire illuminated cities, aurora, and the sporadic flashes of lightening from thunderstorms. Check out many more photos from the series here.
