Ultralight Flight

“Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the Earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been and there you will always long return.”

– Leonardo Da Vinci

A few days ago my brother called me to let me know that I will be receiving my birthday surprise this thanksgiving weekend since I’m hardly home & to make sure I am dressed comfortably. Of course, since then, I wouldn’t stop asking him what the heck are we going to do? I’m sure it was some kind of event since he knows that I appreciate experiences so much more over materialistic things. As we approach to our destination yesterday, I swore I’ve been there before since it’s the similar location where I’ve gone skydiving last year. Just in case you didn’t know this about me yet, I have a serious fear of heights and for some reason just because I’ve gone sky diving (which I would love to do it again), I still don’t think I’ve lost my fear of falling and heights.

Without further ado, here’s a little video about this thrilling experience!

 

I was very surprised with myself that I didn’t get too scared or freaked out— like how I normally do. I was probably afraid for the first ten seconds of ascending to the sky but as soon as we start flying, all of my fears were gone. I automatically just felt at rest and at peace with the world, with the sky, mesmerized and admiring everything around me, above me and below me. If you have a fear of heights or a complete adrenaline junky or someone who loves speed like me, this would be a perfect outlet for you to face your fears, do something new or another thing to check off your bucket list & fly through the clouds. Check out Sky Rider Ultra Lights in Camarillo and ask for Mike. He is probably on of the funniest guys I’ve ever met. Enjoy the ride!

XOXO,

Joy

As Pokemon Go finally hit the US a couple of months ago, you’ve probably seen an influx of people walking down the sidewalks with their phones in front of them —-and this is exactly why. If you are not familiar with this app —this new game turns a regular smart phone user into a real life Pokemon trainer, where you can walk down the street by your house and catch a Pidgey or Rattata or you can go to the local park and defend your territory at the gym. It wasn’t until recently that I actually started getting into this game. I recently went to a Pokemon date and went to a park in Orange County where Balbasaur is nesting. At first I didn’t believe that people were here walking at 10 pm just to catch Balbasaur, yet, the next thing I know I see a bunch of families, friends, coworkers – still wearing their work attire looking for Bulbasaur.

For this year’s Halloween party that my roommates and I decided to throw,  I wanted to be Pikachu and I also dressed Coco as Pichu – Pikachu’s baby. The outfit was really fun to make – I made a crop top and a tutu. Pikachu’s tail is probably one of the most difficult things to make. I had to use lots of wires, cardboard and felt to make it stand. What do you guys think about this costume? How was your Halloween? I hope you had as much fun as I did! ❤
