Ok. So I realized. When 2 people have 2 very individualized passions it’s hard to be together.
My passion right now is firefighting. It’s consumed my life for the last 9 months. I love what I get to do everyday. I probably talk about it way too much, but when it’s what you do nearly everyday and love, it’s hard not to.
His passion is crossfit. He is there everyday, loves it, and lives in that niche that crossfitters have created.
It’s much easier when 2 people have a common passion. Something they can talk about together and relate with. The guy Im seeing doesn’t know anything about fire. He will ask what I did that day but it doesn’t mean anything. And that’s not his fault, he’s just not in the same world as me. And on the same end, I don’t get his world.
I told myself i was going to avoid dating firefighters if I could. I don’t think I want that anymore…
I miss being able to talk in depth about the call I was on or he was on. Or how drill went, and have them understand completely what it was about. I miss the understanding when there’s a call, or I stay at the station extra late after drill. Other ems people just understand, and that’s really nice in a relationship.
Stayed at the station last night for an extra 2 hours talking to an overtime firefighter about photography, and sharing photos and stories.
I realized I’ve barely picked up a camera in like 9 months. It made me so excited about photography again!!!
So I called up my dad today - he’s a photographer - and talked to him for a while. He has a 5D that he said I could have!!!! So Ill either take that one, or upgrade and pay for a new one myself like a t3i or something affordable with video and live view. And I think I’m finally going to splurge on a 35mm lens! Or a wide angle.
I’m so excited!!!! Bkdjahsidisk
