    I had been writing a story of 100k+ words on my first FIMFIC account some years ago - late 2016 through until the middle of 2018 when in the grip of a psychotic break I deleted my account.

    I have regretted that move EVERY SINGLE DAY - because that original story was one very dear to me, and very close to my heart.

    The only thing I have left now is one poorly written draft chapter. The rest is gone.

    NREMT cognitive exam and heart break.

    The good news - which really came as a surprise - was that I passed the NREMT cognitive exam. I honestly came away from that examination feeling like a bag of shit and fully expected to have failed it. Then I found out this evening I had PASSED! So now it's time to move on to the psychomotor skills exam. I think this exam will be a lot harder for me since I find the context of trying to handle the unusual context of those to be a lot harder than actually performing the related

    It finally happened.

    It turns out that he feels I represent everything that he loathes. When the person you love and adore tells you that you "are the type of thing I hate."

    A good indicator that you still love somebody - you feel an incredibly sharp pain when they do this to you. If you don't love someone, they can't hurt you.

    Dawn, you hurt me more than words can explain.

    Anxiety Observation 002

    Any attempt to use a drive-thru window (the name of which also leaves me called ... why "thru," why not just "through?") will leave you feeling terrified. I know everyone with me is going to flood me with specific requests and always want to adjust their orders and trying to remember all of these without placing the wrong order is maddening. My accent has also made ordering from these stupid things a chore, because I am often misunderstood - my personal best was five attempts to order a coke

    Student Debt and Healthcare Costs

    At no point during the first forty years of my life when I lived in Australia were student debts or healthcare costs anything we ever needed to worry about. I had seen various comments about the cost of healthcare and about student debt in those days - but the comments pertaining to those subjects and the inferred problems related to them made no sense to me at all.

    Then I moved to America.

Vacuous, self-indulgent drivel.

  1. How many languages can you speak? Just English - and I have enough difficulty with that.
  2. What is your favorite strange food combinations? Pink salmon, corn, black olives and a little Thousand Island dressing.
  3. What’s your favorite place? It's a place and time. I would suggest my childhood home, back in 1983.
  4. Where did you grow up? Merbein, Victoria, Australia.
  5. What’s your favourite hobby? I don't have a favorite, but I have several. Medical science, scuba diving, model making, EMS, camping, dirt bike riding, history (especially Roman), rifle and pistol shooting, chess.
  6. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you be? Dead.
  7. Are you a listener or a talker? It depends on who my interlocutor is.
  8. What was your last song on your Spotify? I cannot remember - I haven't used Spotify now in a very long time.
  9. Are you a back seat driver? Not at all. Back seat drivers absolutely shit me to tears. You don't like what I'm doing?? Let me pull the fuck over and YOU drive.
  10. Describe your dream holiday if money was no limit? To Maine, I think. Either that or to France to visit the war grave of my greatgrandmother's brother who was killed in action at the Battle of Fromelles on the 19th of July, 1916.
  11. Where do you want to retire? RETIRE?! I live in modern America!!! I'm ever going to be able to afford to RETIRE!!!!
  12. Complete the sentence “I wish everyone could…” Learn to just exercise patience, self-restraint and to learn to have a care for their fellow citizens. Such as allowing the lowest paid people of the national to earn enough to enjoy luxuries such as milk and bread, even if that means the inhuman sacrifice of paying a little bit extra for a hamburger.
  13. Describe your dream wedding if money was no object? Spartan. Weddings today are so ridiculous and needlessly expensive.
  14. What would you do if you knew you could not fail? I'd love to be an NRP or a trauma surgeon.
  15. What is your goal by the end of the decade? To die of natural causes, leaving my wife, kids and my friend Lady Q a share of the $1,000,000 USD of life insurance policies I currently hold.
  16. What is your dream job? ... well ... if I had to chooce ... I'd love to be an NRP or a trauma surgeon.
  17. When you were a child, what was your biggest dream? To be an architect.
  18. What talent would you most like to grow and develop? My scuba diving.
  19. Where would you build your dream home? Miles away from fucking anybody. On a piece of land large enough to get in serious dirt bike riding and some shooting.
  20. If you could immediately gain one skill, what would it be? To heal.
  21. Where do you see yourself going in the company? I see myself being sacked by the end of January, 2021. (UPDATE: I was close, I guess - they sacked me on the 28th of May)
  22. What do you think the most important thing is for a workplace to have? Patience. Either that, or decency. I've yet to find an American employer that has either of these.
  23. What do you admire most in a work colleague? Consideration. Someone who listens, offers constructive but POLITE critiques of your work. Somebody who understands that inflection is lost in the written word, and an off-hand comment can come across as incredibly hostile.
  24. What coffee do you drink in your morning meeting? We don't have meetings, thank Christ. As long as it's hot, has two sugars and creamer that is NOT hazlenut flavored, then it'll do.
  25. What do you think you contribute most to the workplace? I try do, but from the way I'm addressed and constantly badgered, I don't think I contribute anything.
  26. If you could open an office anywhere in the world, where would it be? Houston, Texas.
  27. What is the longest you’ve ever stayed in one job? Seven years. I only left because a competitor bought us out. Then lied about what they were going to do for us after that buy out. Then finally started sacking people from the company I HAD been working for.
  28. What was the worst job you've ever had? Fullbay were the biggest group of heartless fucking arseholes I have yet had to fucking misfortune to fucking deal with. Results Direct (Australia) comes in at a close second.
  29. What was your first job? Seasonal block work in the vineyards of my home town.
  30. Describe the sun in one word? G-Type.
  31. Describe your in-laws in one word? Arseholes.
  32. Describe yourself in one word? Worthless.
  33. Describe your breakfast in one word? Indeterminate.
  34. Describe your house in one word? Submarine.
  35. Describe your weekend in one word? Futile.
  36. Describe your fashion trend in one word? Nonexistent.
  37. Describe your car in one word? Destroyed (one of the joys of having kids ... they destroy the seats, the outside door handles, the carpets)
