Jumping Out of Planes

16 Jul

Hello all,

I haven’t written on this thing in a while because I’ve been busy doing crazy fun things all summer long and preparing for my epic move to the Wild Wild West. As many of you know this blog started out as a documentation of my experiences while studying abroad. After that I kind of fell off the wagon and didn’t write much on here. To be honest that was because nothing else in my life was thrilling enough to follow entries about riding camels in Morocco or pub crawling in Ireland. But now I am back with the most ridiculous tale to tell because I, Megan Delano, have jumped out of a moving airplane at 10,000 feet in the air. 

Okay so I definitely made that sound so much more badass than it actually was. Of course I was strapped to a professional skydiver and didn’t actually jump, he pushed me… but it gained tons of points on the badass scale. Some may say “no way. you didn’t. that’s crazy. you’re so cool.” trust me, I know. And I have pictures to prove it! 

Below is the precise moment when I almost threw up, followed by about a 45 second long free fall through the clouds  and then a lovely pic of me waving to my people down below.

Overall I have to say that skydiving is definitely for those who are a little bit crazier than the rest. It was the most exhilarating thing I have ever done in my life and to be honest I cannot wait to go again. This is for my sister who called me a baby my whole life. We finally did it Sarah!

Stay tuned for what’s next on My Life as Meg.
