Proudest achievement?
« on: November 17, 2020, 10:35:26 am »
List one thing that you think is a great achievement.  No need to compare to anyone.  This is about you, and what you are proud of.
And of course as time passes , you can post another response.

I am proud of taking care of a dog from a little puppy to her passing.  She taught me a lot about me, and her of course, and what it is to care about another and be responsible for them.
It made me a better person, so I feel.

Proudest achievement? Not really sure I have that many. I may not have always been the best son to my mom, but I can be proud of the fact that I did not turn into a drug addict, turned to alcoholism, don't smoke, became a criminal and went to jail, or other "bad behaviors".

That sounds like a lot to be proud of to me!
And I know,  it might be hard to list only 1 huge thing.   Many people probably feel proud about several things.
And if a person feels there is absolutely nothing to be proud of,  I bet there is,  they just can't think of it at this moment.

Achieving the rank I've earned in the Civil Air Patrol. Also various commendations and awards. Appearing in Sport Rocketry magazine and also in a local newspaper while fursuiting.

 Wow! That is pretty cool!

Very cool Rocket. I know I've not done anything like that

Finally making baby-steps towards pursuing a career in Wildland Firefighting. Starting my fire technology classes and basics/fundamentals of wildland fire behavior.  Hopefully by 2022 I'll be on a Type 2(IA) handcrew. Just a matter of getting hired on by the USFS. Making it a goal to become a Hotshot.

Just overall excited to actually pursue something and to start making myself the best I can be.

Congratulations!
Getting training, making goals, and working toward a future is a huge accomplishment!
And we need hot shot crews really bad too. I am bummed when someone here burns down a forest because they insist on having
A fire and they can't control it.

Thanks
Hotshot crews are the frontline of wildland operations it's going to be a tough road. Hopefully I can stick with it long enough and not get myself killed. If I die, I die. It's an occupational hazard with wildland firefighting.

I did once work on Osirus REX the satellite that touched down on Benu and took a sample.
That was cool.  My part was uber tiny, and amounts to not much.  I have a sticker on my computer that shows the TAG-SAM (the thing that touched the asteroid).  Whatever.  But yet I still feel like I have done nothing in my life that actually matters.

I think I'm doing the job that I was meant to do. Actually prayed for this job and didn't know it existed. My Mom told me about an ad in the paper some weeks after my temporary assignment ended. Had to learn how to balance chemical equations all over again. Spent two hours pouring over a reference book on lab procedures in the local community college library. Also had prior laboratory experience.

To be granted an interview, one had to score at least 70% on the exam--I scored an 85. Aced the interview, and was likely one of the few candidates who knew how to manage something called a "whirl pack". They paid for my training at a nearby university and I've obtained certification. I've been working for the city over a dozen years, and if I left, the next city over would likely hire me at once, but I'm happy where I'm at--even if it's just part time.

Proudest achievement now? I'm getting a second werepup in December! A werepup is a doll that looks like a werewolf pup.
