Drowning in Paperwork

In 3 months I start the paramedic program, and I'm starting to get quite excited. There are a lot of very big, very fast changes going on right now, and I'm running around like a chicken with its head cut off trying to get it all done. In the span of a few months, I'm graduating university, buying a car, getting my own apartment, moving to a different city and starting the paramedic program.

As well, before I start the program I need to track down all my immunization records, possibly getting a few to get them up-to-date, get a police check, a TB test, a mask fit and collect proof of all my current certifications. Sometimes it seems like I'm drowning in paperwork to try to get everything done!

I am looking forward to September though, it's going to be a wonderful switch from university - which has been almost entirely theory based. I'm excited to start clinical placements and actually apply what I've learned. It's going to be hard work, but I can't wait to start it.
