My! It has been a while and I say that a lot… I know… But this MUST be blogged about!!!

I FINALLY WENT SKYDIVING!!! One of the things in my bucket list! I figured since I now work… And I JUST turned 22, why not?

SKYDIVE ATLANTA in Thomaston, GA.

0800 class and whatnot. After a few minutes, we got harnessed. My instructor, Mr. Mike, voiced his opinion on how I might fall off because they don’t make extra smalls. He had to tighten all my straps up ALL THE WAY. Bahah!

I then met Butters (apparently what they call my photographer) and we did a little interview. When asked for my “last words,” I say, “LONG LIVE OLD TIME RELIGION!” [People probably thought I was crazy!]

As we were boarding the plane, I was asked to blow a kiss to the camera… And so I did. For memories’ sake! We were packed in there like sardines. I asked Mr. Mike if it was okay for me to lean on him since holding myself up with the harness felt like an ab workout. x) He said, “I don’t think your 95 pounds will hurt me.”

I was SOOOO pumped. The fear was settling the night before and on the way. But as soon as we got on the plane, ALL GONE! I just wanted to get out there and jump! #adrenalinejunkie

So, all I remember was screaming to psyche myself up before we jumped (we were the last one to do it). It was SO COOL. We headed to the door, rocked back and forth twice, and off we go!

***Sidenote: During the ride, I asked Mr. Mike if we could do something cool, but nothing too terribly crazy. He says to me, “You’re jumping out of a plane. What do you mean nothing crazy?”

Some turbulence initially, then Butters comes to take pics and whatnot. My cheeks by this time were flapping everywhere… Freely… HENCE the pics. It was a little difficult to breathe going at that rate… I don’t even know how fast… But it was FAAASTTT.

After a few seconds of free falling, Mr. Mike deploys the parachute. The first one. He told me to grab the handles. I was reluctant because I stink at just about anything related to maneuvering and whatnot. He said he was gonna let go so I grabbed it. We did some spins. SOOOO COOL! It was also peaceful and quiet as we floated around.

Before I know it… And as soon as it was getting better, we were preparing for landing… :’( *tear* It was the smooooothest landing ever.

Skydiving was SO much fun! I would do it again in a HEARTBEAT! Probably in the very near future as long as I don’t go broke. x)

Anyway, maybe all this adrenaline has worn off enough for me to go to bed. x) Goodnight Tumblsters.

I’ve been organizing my printed pictures as well as the ones I have on my laptops (so I can print them) these past few days! 

This task is laborious! Waaaah!!! I can’t imagine how much it’s gonna cost me to print them all considering it’s gonna be about 6 years worth of pictures! 

But it shall be worth it when I start putting them together. I can’t wait to scrapbook again! It’s just better than digital… Something to look at and to have for keepsakes. 

I’m old fashioned like that.

True story.

True story.

One of my bus babies, Shanequa!

I love this girl to pieces. She always asks me to sit with her and she plays with my hair. When I first rode the bus from being gone for a good 3 weeks, she gave me the biggest hug! It made my heart all bubble over!!!

Then I jokingly asked some of the kids if they missed me. Nelson replies with the sweetest and innocent answer, “Everyone missed you Miss Gley.”

And then when I was doing care ministry and shaking people’s hands, I approached the bus kids’ section and as I was shaking Justin’s hand, he tells me, “I missed you Miss Gley.” Ahhh.

I love this ministry and I’m super thankful that I get to serve in it! I had a present and a Christmas card waiting for me too when I got back. And my co-workers telling me that the kids asked when I was coming back every time they rode the bus and didn’t see me in it. :)

This was maybe two days ago… When it was raining super hard and it was accompanied by scary lighting and thunder!

Storms usually do not scare me but this one… I could see the light through my DOUBLE blinds and every time I tried to count how far it was, it got closer and closer! By then, I’d decided to go to my parents’ room and sleep with them…

I crawl in bed with them and not too long after that, I hear the door for my room opening… I call unto my sister and tell her that I’m in our parents’ room. So she went in and climbed in bed with us.

After a little bit, my grandma goes to the room and tells us to make room for her. Haha! So my sister and I decided to go to the closet and try to sleep there.

The calm eventually came and we went back to our rooms because the floor wasn’t too comfortable. X)
