One Way Plane Ride

I'm a pretty reserved person. I used to joke with my roommates that I've been 30 since I was a teenager because I've always been so responsible. Lately I've been trying to challenge myself to step out of my comfort zone a little bit (I've been inspired by this guy). Nothing too crazy...just a few things here and there that make me uncomfortable but also make me a more well rounded and confident person. 

When Danette declared that she was going to go skydiving to commemorate her graduation (with her Master's in Social Work, yay you!), I decided to commemorate my own graduation and join her. I've always been completely terrified of skydiving, and even now that I'm going, I'm not terribly excited. But, I feel like it's a good way for me to step out of my comfort zone and challenge myself. 

One of the best parts is that Jason has decided to join us. I think it will be really cool for the three of us to do this together for the first time, especially since we don't get to spend a lot of time together. 

I'm still scared to death, but I am also excited for the challenge and the bonding experience with my siblings. Now if I can just figure out a way to ensure I don't puke on my tandem instructor...
