And I 'm Freeee, Free Fallin...

First of all, I should be starting my 8 page paper on Bronfenbrenner's Ecological and Socioculture Theory  (which is due in two days) but instead I am going to write about my skydiving adventure! Blogging seems such more fun than the alternative, and I know you all are DYING to watch my skydiving video =]

 Now please excuse my lack of makeup and my frazzled hair. Oh, and that HIDEOUS cone head cap they forced me to wear. Skydiving is definitely not a stylish  activity but insanely fun nonetheless.

It all started a week ago when TJ called me up at work and said "Here's the plan, were going skydiving on Friday, be ready." and to that I said "Okay, you skydive, and I'll watch." We ended up not going that Friday (which I was very happy for, because no way I was going to jump out of a plane), but TJ and three of his buddies decided to mix it in with their Fourth of July extravaganza. Since they all had 72's and I had Monday off, Monday, July 5th was the day! I even told my boss about it. She said she went skydiving when she was my age and had a blast. So I decided, well, If I am ever going to do something crazy, now would be the time. So off we went to Lake Elsinore to strap up to some men and jump out of planes.

Of Course, TJ and I

The Guy strapped to my back...yup you heard me right

Scratco taking a dive!

Looking down from 12,500 feet

Dear Lord, Please keep me alive....

Pulling the chute, and shooting up into the air,
was the scariest part

 LANDDDD!

 There are no words to describe how amazing that 
whole experience was

Wait, what, and there's video! Yes, there sure is. (I, and when I say I, I mean TJ, is going to put music on this later.)



It was one of the best experiences, exciting, scary and invigorating. EVERYONE NEEDS TO DO THIS at least once in their lives. It is definitely worth it.
