here’s a tip: if you start dating a depressed person, don’t be surprised if they are still depressed while they are dating you.
they’re not depressed because they’re single, and you are not an all-powerful cure for mental illnesses. just be there for them.
Word of advice
Don’t ever go back and look at your ex’s tumblr. It’s not worth it. It’ll either piss you the fuck off or make you cry.

*** 13 - Structure Fire *** / *** WF - Working Fire ***
Well, cherry popped. I had my first bigger role at a working fire last night. Call dispatched at 2145 hrs as a signal 13 structure fire, occupants within. As we rolled, the chief asked for a working fire re-tone. We were first due engine to a fully involved residential structure fire with a hydrant located right next to the home. I hit the hydrant and secured supply. Occupants self-extricated and we immediately went defensive. I was back-up on an 1 3/4” line on the 2 side. Fire was located at the front door, 2nd floor 1 side, and attic, and quickly moved back towards the 3 side. I was hitting the 2nd floor 2 side windows, which self-vented, and switched back and forth between that and cooling down the next house over. Wind played a factor in fire spread, as it was blowing from the 4 to the 2 side and right into the neighbor’s house. After a successful defensive attack, we made a quick and successful interior push, operating (don’t quote me, there was a lot going on) some 1 3/4” lines and a deuce and a 1/2. Fire out by 2400 hrs (ish, I lost track of time) and arson investigation closed off the structure. Amazing job by the Lindenhurst and Copiague Fire Departments. No injuries and only lost some pets.
That’s me at the hydrant. :)
