I'm sure that many of you have been seeing what is happening in the airline industry right now. Covid-19 has undoubtedly taken its toll. I searched for the known impact, and I found this Wikipedia entry. It is so sad to see what is happening at the moment. One way my employers are trying to... Continue Reading →

Finally! You can stop holding your breath! Since the beginning of September, I have been otherwise occupied/ distracted, but I Scream: 10 is now a thing! A special THANK YOU to everyone who participated this year! This has become such a fun tradition! My final count turned out the be 137 friends and family celebrating!... Continue Reading →

Today was my annual recurrent training- a day where I am required to sit in a classroom for eight hours to recertify as a flight attendant. Although this day is more relaxed than initial training had been sixteen years ago, I still find it rather stressful. I know this is mostly head games, though. Most... Continue Reading →

I guess it's time to give you an update. I am happy, excited, and nervous that starting next month, I will be taking up to a year off (the extended time off that I mentioned in my last post). This time off will free me up so that I can help a friend out who... Continue Reading →

It is a crazy time to be employed by an airline! Thanks to COVID-19, many major U.S. airlines are getting ready to furlough or even fire their employees. Delta Air Lines recently announced that they would be furloughing up to 17,000 employees. American Airlines- around 25,000 employees, and United Airlines- up to 36,000. One of... Continue Reading →

I guess I'm allowed to cross number 37 off of my bucket list. Well, technically, that is. The goal was to buy a Eurail pass, and that's one of the things that I did for this last trip. Even though I didn't actually get to use my pass (waste of money), I still purchased one.... Continue Reading →

A Light Flight to NYC "The new normal" is very odd. I think I'll call it "the current normal" instead. On Saturday, I was assigned to work a turn (that's where you work a flight away from the base, and then back to base without having a layover/ overnight stay). I worked to New York...

Scotland 8: Day 24, The Conclusion

03.25.20 | Home | 23:47 I woke up after about nine hours of sleep! Nine hours isn’t usually something that my body requires, but I think lugging my backpack all around London wiped me out. I got all my things ready and checked out of the hostel. One night is not enough time to spend... Continue Reading →

Scotland 8: Day 23

03.24.20 | London, England | 20:53 When I got to Glasgow Central Station this morning, I couldn’t see my 08:00 train listed on the board. I noticed that there had been an earlier one to London that had been canceled. I admit that I was a little bit worried that all the trains may be... Continue Reading →

Scotland 8: Day 22

3.23.20 | Glasgow, Scotland | 20:53 Today was a bittersweet feeling. Sweet because it’s always nice to be in this country that I love so much. Bitter that today is my last full day in Scotland. Also, I’m having to cut my trip short. As I mentioned in an earlier post, this was only the... Continue Reading →
