I FINALLY GOT TO SEE ALLIE AFTER TWO YEARS!!!
I went down to the San Diego area to see her and her Marine. I stayed the night with them and we spent the entire next day shopping and having a blast! It's crazy how the first time we met, we only spent a few hours together, then I didn't see her for two years, and it's like we're best friends. I'm overwhelmed with joy!
So that had me crazy busy, and now I'm working 5 graveyard shifts. Ughhh. Last night at work someone really upset me. The person asked me what I wanted to do with my helicopter license and what my goals were. So I told them that eventually I'd like to fly for LAPD. The individual then became really snappy with me and was like "So you're not going to stay around here? How long are you planning on staying with this department?" It made me so defensive. To make matters worse, I really look up to this person. They're a role model for me. All I could say in response was "I'm 20 years old, I believe there's time for me to do everything I want to do, even if I have to do it all at the same time." At first I was so defensive and confused. Am I supposed to want to stay at this department forever?!?! During my interview here, they asked what my goals were and I told them straight up what my future would be like...and they still hired me. So obviously its not a bad thing right?
I love my job, don't get me wrong. But I can't truly say it is my "calling" in life. Or it might be, if I could do both at the same time. What's everyone elses opinion on this? Feel free to share please!
