It's official

Category: Jobs, Work, Careers

I'm now officially a member of the Civil Air Patrol! My paperwork was processed, and I've got my new ID number and everything. Next steps are to get my uniform, take a photo for my ID card, and start figuring out how to use our platform... Then training! I'm so excited.  I'm happy to do whatever I need to do in order to work my way up to the big missions. Typically it takes a minimum of 2 years of... » Continue Reading

Hangin' out in the hangar

Category: Jobs, Work, Careers

CAP meeting was fun today. Fun crossover moment because my flight school had to borrow the facilities, so we ended up having our meeting at the hangar instead. Our plane is fresh out of maintenance and we all got to have a look at it.  We talked about emergency missions today, there was a lot to cover and I don't remember all of it. But it's okay, once I start training I'll get to re-learn everyth... » Continue Reading

Today was very cool!

Category: Life

Alright, well I've finally got my new FAA correspondence mailed off. Can't wait to hear back from them... In August! Haha. Well, in the meantime, tomorrow I get fingerprinted for the Civil Air Patrol. Excited for it! Today, I felt 90% back to my normal self. I'm so glad that I'm healing from whatever horrible illness took ahold of me while I was grieving.  Oh man and guess what! There was a Blackh... » Continue Reading

The best company ever

Category: Fashion, Style, Shopping

Finally, a targetted ad that was actually a targetted ad and not something dumb or irrelevant. It popped up last night and I lost my mind. They're an Australian company called "I Love A Hangar" and they mainly make shoes based on various war planes. You can see where this is going.  But to make a long story short, I bought two pairs of shoes. I needed some anyway, and this is much better than gett... » Continue Reading

10 years later.

Category: Life

Yeah, I'm a day late with this. Yesterday was busy and even a little hectic... I guess I should take the time to explain. Even if it's just vague, because I'm not quite sure how comfortable I am with sharing these things.  On May 12th, 2013, something really weird happened to me. It's a very surreal night that I still have fuzzy memories of, but I met someone who would go on to be the strangest an... » Continue Reading

Recovering slowly

Category: Life

It's been a slow, painful, and exhausting few days for me. The grief really punched me in the gut and left me to die, it feels like. I finally am able to eat decent food, and I've mostly rehydrated myself. I've gotten significant energy back - not all of it, but a lot more. So that's a good sign.  I am still absolutely crushed by what happened. Just thinking or talking about it makes me want to cr... » Continue Reading

I couldn't fly today. / The loss of a cat.

Category: Pets and Animals

I'm just.... Really hurting a lot more than I expected I would. No matter how hard I tried to push the thoughts away, it's only been 24 hours since the kitty passed away. I'm still distraught. This morning I woke up so sick to my stomach. I tried eating, but it made me sicker. My family wanted to drive me to the airport today, because they were gonna spend the day at a nearby event. But I just had... » Continue Reading

Incredibly beautiful day

Category: Life

I have just been spending all day ouside. This weather is just amazing. The air is so fresh, the breeze is blowing, there are so many huge clouds towering up into a blue sky. Lots of birds flying around and playing in the wind. There's even a faint rainbow! It's like a dream.  There's a storm coming tonight, that's why. The weather right before a storm is always so nice to me. Some cool planes pas... » Continue Reading

Super awesome flying day!

Category: Life

Ahhhhh! I FINALLY got to fly again! I got to fly with my ground instructor, who, as I mentioned once before, just recently became a certified CFI. I was still feeling a bit sick from my stomach, but I was able to tough it out enough to fly this morning.  Man. It was a gorgeous day! The clouds were beautiful! The air was so fresh, and the skies were just... Wow. I loved flying today. I have now fin... » Continue Reading

I'm still sick

Category: Life

I feel pretty terrible. My stomach feels like if someone ran over it with a tractor. I was extremely weak yesterday, and I started taking something my doctor gave me to help calm down the acid in my stomach since it's just burning me.  Despite that, I was still trying to go about my day yesterday and today. I feel slightly better today compared to yesterday. I'm supposed to fly tomorrow but I high... » Continue Reading

Something is wrong

Category: Life

I'm probably just stressed out or something. I woke up this morning with my stomach burning. It was hurting last night too, but not like this. I have really bad acid reflux, and it's like a stabbing pain in my stomach and back.  Since yesterday I've been feeling ridiculously stressed out and anxious. I haven't felt anxiety in.... Months. To be fair, the news from the FAA might have triggered this ... » Continue Reading

I finally deleted everything.

Category: Travel and Places

I just don't want to remember it anymore.  Right, um... This has nothing to do with what I posted earlier. I was just having a moment, remembering a good friend. Still kinda sad from all that, but I decided to try and channel my energy into something a bit more productive.  The whole Seattle thing (again, not at all related to my friend or what I posted earlier) really just makes me feel sick and ... » Continue Reading
