Best Job Ever

Happy Monday! Some of you may know that I’ve been attending a citizen’s police academy in my city for the last few weeks. The program is very cool because each week we get to meet officers from every department and learn about the inner workings. Surprisingly, I am the only writer in the class. Everyone else in the class of about fifty are average people who want to get more involved in the community and maybe were just curious about police work. It’s been so fun and we still have several weeks left.

As you can imagine, I’m learning lots of awesome things that I will eventually use in novels. But I’m also learning stuff about myself. For example, I never knew I was an adrenaline junky. Until Saturday.

Because Saturday was DRIVE DAY. That’s right, friends, I spent my Saturday morning driving cops cars at high speeds through a tough course. We each got three qualifying runs through the course, hoping to beat the time of 52 seconds.

Anyway, I thought I’d share the video of my third run through the course with you. Thanks to Mr. Jaye for filming it.

3 Thoughts on “Best Job Ever

  1. So.Good. I realized I was an adrenaline junkie when I figured out that I liked it best when I was working on a live theatrical event and something would go wrong and we (the crew) had to figure out how to solve the problem at lightening speed without anyone realizing there was a problem or at the very least mitigating it as much as possible. Also…rock climbing…loved it.
