I have yet to receive a confirmation date on when my GED test is taking place. I'm guessing it will be on the 9th or 10th of July. Times a tickin...... Just so you know, I wrote this essay down as if I were testing and then did a quick type up of it. There might be a few typos thanks to me rushing it. This topic is not as bad as the last one so hopefully I did better this time around. Topic Title. What is one important goal you would like to achieve in the next few years? And off we go! _____________________________________________________________________ In the next few years I would like to become either a Police Officer, Fireman, or Paramedic. I've always been the type of person who likes to help people. If I become a Police Officer I could help reduce crime. If I become a Fireman I could help save lives by helping people out of dangerous places, weather it be a burning building, or another september eleventh. If I were to become a Paramedic I could help save lives by responding to an accident, house call, or helping someone out who needs help while I'm off duty in a public place. Another thing I really like about the Police, Fire and Paramedics is the benefits. They offer very good health insurance as a good life, and retirement plan. Police and Fire Departments in Maryland offer a 20 year retirement program. That means, if I'm accepted into the Police, or Fire Academy this year, I could retire at the age of 41! Although, I'm not quite sure about the retirement program offered by the local Paramedics, I'm guessing it is up to par with the Police and Fire Departments. In order to apply for a position with the Police, Fire, or Paramedic Departments I first need to obtain a GED. After I receive my GED I might take a few college courses to help further my education. I'm hoping over the next few years I can have my new carrier underway. Who knows, maybe one day I might just save your life. But on the other hand I might pull you over for speeding and write you a ticket. Only time will tell.
