A Flight Attendant’s Facebook Updates That Will Make You Question Humanity

  People constantly ask me, “What’s the craziest thing that has ever happened on the plane?” I always shrug and say, “I dunno.” For the most part and to be quite honest, my airplane days are mostly uneventful and in the moments that they aren’t, it just seems normal.

5 Gifts To Give The Flight Attendant In Your Life This Holiday Season

I was out wandering Las Olas Blvd— the quaint restaurant row and fancy shopping avenue in Ft Lauderdale. It was window and ‘sometimes walking-in’ shopping. While purchasing a knick-knack, I asked, “Why the 25 percent off pre-sidewalk sale?” The girl looked at me like I must live on Mars, as everyone should know why there was a […]

What Is ‘The Flight Attendant Life?’

I asked myself the question, “What is The Flight Attendant Life?” while staring at a mostly blank screen, trying to write.  I hate that word ‘trying’ because what it really means is failing, or not actually making it.  This week was trying.  It seems as if weeks are these days.  There is a joke between my […]

How To Give A Flight Attendant Your Number

Flight Attendants meet people every day, everywhere, all of the time, but contrary to popular belief, flight attendants aren’t constantly being asked out on dates; giving, or getting numbers.  Keep in mind a flight attendant is ‘at the office,’ and we do try to keep our work world professional.  That being said, I’ll admit that […]

Don’t Leave Me Here

I don’t feel very alive at this moment.  Maybe it’s that I’ve been living so alive, so fully, at such high intensity, that I’ve temporarily run out of pizzaz.  Only for a second though.  Liken me to an iPhone, and I’m at about 5% right now.  All the apps are draining my battery. Tired girl […]

Peanut Butter Goes Better With Jelly

I sit around in my room for hours on end, drinking tea and listening to The Sleep Playlist on Spotify.  I curl up with a book, the only interruption being the frequent whistles of a text messages from the girls, because even though we are in four time zones, we stay together.  I wake up […]
