Hi! I’m Esther.

As a young 14 year old, I decided I wanted to become an EMT.  At 16, after I started this blog as a way to chronicle my adventures through EMT school, I discovered a passion for firefighting. I spent nearly a year in a bunk-in program, while going through fire academy, and it remains one of the best best experiences of my life. Currently, I’m working as a FF/EMT at a department here in northern Iowa. When I’m not here, you can find me reading, enjoying a well- earned cookie, or hitting the gym. Here’s my honest-to-goodness take on life.
