Is There A ‘Detox Button’ Somewhere???

Does anyone else think that 2016 is on crack?  Brexit, Trump, Prince, David Bowie, Divorces, Car accidents, Deaths in the family, Heartbreak, job switches, and what the hell is going on with the avocados in California!?!?! That’s pretty much the last straw. I can’t even. Is there a ‘detox button’ somewhere, because I just… When I […]

“For Me”

I haven’t figured out a concise and relatable way to explain the weird oddities that come along with working for a European airline. Flight benefits? No, we don’t have those. Bidding? Non-existent. Reserve? The code is APS, MIS, and SBX, among maybe other things. They don’t mean the same, as one code requires airport readiness […]

Because #LOVEWINS: Building And Cultivating Relationships In A Christian, Secular, Gay, Straight And Flight Attendant World

I have been removed from the history that was made this past Friday. Not removed because it does not matter to me, but removed because as a Christian, I should frown upon or be saddened by “where our world is going.” But, if you ask me to be sad about where our world is going, I’ll […]

On Wanting…

I started this essay as content for my book.  It turned into something that needed to be published here. So, here it is. -Kara On Wanting Sick. I feel it again.  I don’t know if it is the antibiotic that I have been taking recently, or the jet lag, or possibly the fact that I ate […]

Exhale

“My life is a project of seeing the good in places, no matter where I am sent, no matter where I live.  Of appreciating the beautiful in myself, and not begging to be someone else.  I’m on a search to find that which I was meant to do; a process of discovering who I am, […]

The Beautiful Gay Flight Attendant

This post was initially started with the title being, “Why More Straight Men Should Be Flight Attendants.”  And then it turned into this.  That’s writing.  That’s life:) *** If you walk on to an airplane, more often than not, you are hoping for hot flight attendants,  but more often than not, you are welcomed by… […]

Which Story Will You Tell?

This is for Becca, I’ve never met you, but you inspire me.  I’ve never met many people that have read this blog, but your emails, comments, and quiet support fill me with purpose.  Thank you. Kara. *** This morning, I wrote in my notes: “I feel crushed by the weight of my dreams.” Yesterday, I […]

I’ve Replaced My Nose Ring With A New Airline

When I was eighteen, it was a big deal when I came home from boarding high school with my ears pierced.  Initially, it was only my Aunt that noticed.  My father, and mother realized my rebel act only after it was pointed out.  When I was twenty-six, I came home from Istanbul, with a nose […]

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 […]

So Over You!

Driving to the airport this morning for my flight lesson, I realized something:  That I worry way too much, and I’m over it!  My morning had just begun, and yet, the concerns I had over things that I had absolutely no control over, were dragging me down, souring my mood.  Instead of focusing on the […]
