Search and Rescue

This may not have been the “week from hell” but thanks to my mother it was pretty damn close! What a bitch!! And before you question me, I have spent years of abuse and if you ask any of her friends, they will tell you what they told, my parents should not be allowed to have me. But that is a story you can’t find if you read back, sharing it now only makes me angry.

This week I tested for a job, one that I am not likely to get, being a girl and not have a $5000 piece of paper that says u attended “their” training, though my training is the same because it all resulted in state certification. It’s hard to explain but a total pain in the ass. Over 150 people tested!! Yes, a lot!!! An only the top 30 move to the next of a 4 step process. I doubt I did we’ll enough, but well see in a few weeks.

After all that, I joined my man on a road trip. I was in a bad mood, which was entirely my mothers fault, again! I apologized and he took me to a few caches along the way. That helped, until we got to our destination. Then the people hiding the caches had me worked up more. One of them cheated to get their cache published.

It was our first stop, a cache that has yet to be found. The coordinates put you in the middle of a field, literally!! So after an hour search of the nearest trees, we got nothing. E-mailed the cacher owner only to get a message back later that read: “I know the coordinates are off, I had to do that to get it published because it fell too close to another cache.” WFT?! Seriously??? It’s an entire HUGE open section with PLENTY of areas to hide and you have to cheat???? Fuck you!

So we moved on to other caches there, all hidden by the same person, after two caches I said, “fuck this” and quit! I think you should be required so many finds before you can hide a cache. And you need to be slightly smarter than a fucking monkey! This person clearly had very little knowledge of caching! The first of their cache put me in the middle of a field between 3 sections of trees, all about 50 feet away! Ugh! After several searches, I found it on pure luck. Off to the next. Same damn thing! GPS put me in a damn field!!! Read the hint…the item that matches the hint is a good 75 feet or more away! Are you freaking kidding???? I posted a note that said, “This is the second of your caches I have tried today. I am not logging this as a DNF because I didn’t truly look, but I suggest you update your coordinate because ALL of them are off!”

I know, the GPS takes you to the general location then you search from there, but fuck! This wasn’t even getting me in a general location!!!! I’m not dealing with that every time. You’re coordinates need to be somewhat close! Damn!

So he took me home after that, held me tight for a while to calm me down from my mother. He also fed me, it was my first full meal in 2 days, and my stomach did not take to it well! I was SO sick! It was horrible!!

I spent today complete alone like a loser. I was not invited to any parties, my man had to work, and I was suppose to be studying. I’m getting really nervous for my next critical care test, which is this week! : ( I’m scared! Flipping out! I’m panicking!! I feel like I know nothing!! But right now I’m preparing for another test too! 3 in one week is just stupid!!!!

This week I test for another job. Yes, not including the last test, this is a whole different department. The pay sucks, the drive is far, but the people are nice and it beats hell job! So I’m trying! I won’t jinx myself, but the Assistant Chief seems to like me and I’m helping her study for this next test, let’s hope it is enough! I need something! Anything!!!

My aunt and uncle invited me on a cruise this summer. Problem is I need a buddy to go along, to make it cheaper, and I have none. My cousin suggested I take my man, but we know the family won’t like that. I have no friends, and none that are responsible with money to be able to afford it. Hell, I can’t afford it now anymore either! I’m bummed, it was going to be my escape, a time to relax, and instead I’m stuck here…in hell. Never an escape.

Sometimes the internet is a great search tool, other times not so much. This time not so much. I want to find search teams that work you a couple months out of the year, I would love to do this!! All the teams around me are volunteer only, which is great but I already volunteer and it takes money. Money I don’t have. You have to buy your own equipment, tools, uniform, lodging, gas, vehicle…everything you have to pay for. Can’t do that. So I would like to know, do you know of any? I think it would be a great experience! So let me know. I would love to do this!!

WTF?!

I logged into on the computer, something I tend to rarely do. I noticed that I had several more searches that brought people to my page and these I had to share. I really wish I could work for Google for a day and see the things people search! Or Siri and see the things people ask…it’d be awesome! Heck, today I needed to search something on good and started typing in “how to turn” and the first five suggestions that came up underneath it were: how to turn a guy on, how to turn a girl on, ow to turn off iphone, how to turn a decimal into a fraction, and how to turn off ipod. I just had to laugh. If you’re ever bored just start typing something in and see the suggestions come up…it’s interesting. Or hit the “I’m feeling lucky” button and see what other people have searched recently because it will take you to theirs. It’s entertaining.

Anyway…recent searches that have lead people to my page…

Water babies bottle of sunscreen – This one would have lead the person this post about ways to help your sunburn, if so, then I hope they person has learned a new trick I was taught because it’s worked great for me the few times I have been burnt!

Married man hugged and kissed another woman on forehead – I had to type this into google myself to figure out what it lead them to, after several pages in, they apparently read this post. I hope it gave them what they were looking for, but I doubt it. I always hate to see searches like that, but it seems to be a common search topic because stuff like that comes up quit often.

NREMT test sucks – First, I COMPLETELY agree with you here!! That test is HORRIBLE!! You look up the definition of “horrible” in the dictionary and the NREMT should be the first thing listed!! I also had to type this one into to google and see which post they came too. Oddly the very first listing on google brings you here showing several posts with NREMT listed. I’m curious how many people see this now and if NREMT themselves have come across it…I hope they know how horribly retarded that test is! None of the questions I had would do me any good as a paramedic on the truck…it’s just stupid! Anyone who has ever taken the test knows what I’m talking about.

Crazy geocache containers – After looking at 17 pages of google I still have no idea which post they saw. In my opinion, if it doesn’t exist on the first 3 pages of google then it doesn’t exist at all, but that’s just my ADHD kicking in. I’m sure they saw one or all of my geocaching posts, but I may never know on that one.

O shit im stuck – This one just makes me laugh reading it! I am extremely curious what about this lead them to my page, so again I google searched this myself. Well, after looking through 30 pages this time of some very interesting results I have no idea how it lead them to my page. If you find out, please share. This one has me the most curious.

What are people searching to find you?

Search Me Often?

Thursday this week the dentist will be stealing all my wisdom so I am currently trying to keep my mind occupied, plus I’m bored at work. You may find many random posts between now and Thursday, especially when I’m trying to keep my mind occupied like today.

I noticed recently some odd searched leading people to my page. Some make sense, others not so much. If you care to read, they are below with my thoughts on the people doing the searching. Enjoy.

i love you finger art – Well, this can only lead to my post with finger art in it. I can only imagine what this person thought if they decided to read the rest of my blog.

finger art – My guess is this is the same person as above, once again I believe they came across this post and it’s not what they were looking for. Instead it was just a random photo from my random life when I was messing around with people…nothing unusual for me.

cancer pisces alike in many ways – I’m going to guess that this person was searching along the lines of my search when I came across the information I posted on this one. They probably found some information they were looking for in this one, maybe.

our24yearagegap@yahoo.com – Clearly someone was trying to see what all was linked to my e-mail address which got me curious. I found the following: contact page and some other page that I’m not sure of.

when to divorce – This had to lead the person to the following post and I hope this person found what they are looking for. It saddens me to hear about people getting a divorce, but sometime it really is for the best.

lmfao – sexy and i know it youtube ageless – This is a random search here…very interesting. This person was looking for me that’s for sure, not sure why those plus “ageless” would be put together. It had to lead them to the following post and probably another page I have removed from my account.

our24yeargap.wordpress.com – This one is pretty self explanatory, they were clearly trying to relocate my page.

love finger art – Someone really loves their finger art! I’m curious if this was all the same person or multiple people.

mimi alford or beardsley – This person was probably searching for “Once Upon a Secret” and came across my post reviewing the book. I do hope they buy it and enjoy it as much as I have. It was truly a good book!

our24yeargap – Once again this is pretty self explanatory, clearly this person was searching for me.

finger art love – And again someone is in love with their finger art! I will admit, this search has made me quit popular. I’m always impressed to see that 1 person has looked at my blog, let along 2!

this kid necer stops playing x box – I’d like to point out that this person can’t spell, but they must have come across either this blog post or this one. I’m going to take a guess here they may have been talking about my brother because he NEVER stops playing! It must be nice to be 20 (almost 21), no job, no school, and play Xbox all damn day!! Ugh!!

job come – I’m guessing this person was searching for my post directly because I’m not sure why you would search “job come” only…it’s a little creepy to think people are looking for me directly and clearly more than once.

what if volunteer firefighters don’t volunteer – Someone is worried about their firefighters not showing up and I would just like to say that it would be very rare for this to happen! But who knows, it could. I think they came across one of the two posts that I have with volunteer firefighter in it, either this one or this one.
