Holy shit. I guess it’s been about a year since I’ve put my fingers to this keyboard and so so much has happened. I live in Alma, Colorado now a little town at 10,600ft. I live with my girlfriend Danielle and our two dogs Echo and Lily. I’m currently working at Aurum Breckenridge a pretty damn good restaurant in the epic ski town. Moutain life, it is safe to say is for me.
But more than mountain life I’m also discovering life a new if you will. During my first week living in the hills, I went out for a bike ride with a crew at RMU. a bar/ culture hotspot in Breck. Halfway home the rider in front of me went down breaking his collar bone.
I’ve volunteered with search and rescue in Park County where I live and so far just trained with the team only a dozen or so times.
Today I saw someone I happened to know, have a severe wreck while snowboarding.
What do all these things have in common? They point me in a general direction. Medicine has been a thought for a long time. And after just a year of working in clinics and hospitals as an aide and a tech I knew it could be my forever gig. I just had to find a way to make it sustainable.
I’ve found a way. It is going to be a long road. there is more school, long hours, long nights, and hard times ahead but to say the least, I’m stoked to chase it.
Until next time.
