Watching: Law and Order: SVU
Hey, what's happening guys? Got some fresh news for everyone. I don't think I've ever actually discussed it on here, but my lifelong dream is to become a police officer and be a detective some day. Today, I took my very first step down the road to realizing that dream. I took the written test for entrance into the police academy.
It was a pretty simple thing, I'm fairly sure that I nailed it. All it was was a bunch of English comprehension, spelling and grammar exercises to make sure that the test-takers know how to speak and write reports on the job. Now that this is over I still need to take my physical exam. That's what I'm worried about. I'm not a very athletic person, but I'm not completely out of shape. I think I can do it if I set my mind to it. Nevertheless, the people taking these tests are bigger and stronger than me on average (even some of the girls!) so it's a bit scary. I feel kind of out of place.
I'd really appreciate if you guys out there reading this could pray for my success in the physical exam. My entrance into these tests comes on the heels of more big news. San Jose Police Department has a big sudden vacancy of police officers so they're doing a huge recruitment drive. If I get accepted to their academy, they will cover my education and pay me while I'm learning. If I get accepted to that academy, my lifelong dream will be that much closer to fruition.
Thanks in advance for the support of the people reading. Until next time!
