9 Reasons Why Your Duty Crew Partner Could Be Your Spouse

There’s a secret bond between the two of you that no one else will understand.

9 Reasons Why Your Duty Crew Partner Could Be Your Spouse

Whether you want to admit it or not, your partner will know you better than you even know yourself. Can you blame them, though? After countless hours a week together they know what makes you function and what shuts you down. After all, you’re trapped in an ambulance, police car, or fire station together for a good portion of your day and week.

1. They know what your favorite meal is

Chick Fil A, Number 2, no tomato, with honey mustard for your fries.

2. They can tell what you’re feeling

No joke, the slightest move of a facial muscle and they’re asking what you and your significant other are fighting about.

3. They know your birthday, anniversary, kid’s birthday and every single special date in your life

You will inevitably end up working on your birthday, your kid’s birthday or anniversary at one point in your career. Your partner knows these dates and will most likely get to work a little early to mess with your locker or add balloons to your favorite recliner. Your kids are their kids; Christmas and birthday gifts will be brought in and you’ll do the same for them.

4. They’ve been there with you on your worst calls

They don’t have to ask why you don’t want to go to a certain Dunkin Donuts because they know that after all, this time, you still see the person laying in the parking lot as you pulled up on the scene.

5. They’ve been there with you on your best calls

That lady you saved after an hour of CPR. They were right there with you.

6. They know how you like your coffee or what your favorite energy drink is

If your partner wakes up 10 minutes before you, they brew the coffee and will have a cup with your name on it just how you like it. Not a coffee person? There’s your Red Bull in the fridge.

7. You have inside jokes

Sexy cop. Sexy Medic. Yeah, your partner knows exactly who they are.

8. They know your favorite seat and won’t dare to take it

The recliner will always be left open for you and you won’t even think of going to sit on the couch.

9. There’s a secret bond between the two of you that no one else will understand

This job isn’t easy. It’s not for the weak. You have to be able to put aside personal feelings and be the one who makes order out of chaos. Let’s be honest, you couldn’t be Batman without Robin.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
