Which Of These Hobbies Doesn’t Belong?

Earlier this year, my husband and I were talking about things that were on our bucket list.  Well, skydiving was one of them.  He called one of the local drop zones and scheduled a tandem jump.  I ended up chickening out, but he went ahead and did his.  Long story short, he loved it.   I ended up doing a jump also on a later date. It was one of the BEST decisions I made!

The only problem is, it makes the rest of my hobbies seem ridiculously boring;)


I thought after I took the class and got my first solo jump in, I’d be done with the whole thing.  WRONG!  The adrenaline rush is like a drug you can’t get out of your system;) You just want more and more!  Other than being ridiculously terrified climbing out of the plane for the first time, it’s a total ‘mind over matter’  situation.  You just make yourself do it.  The hubs and I are both working on getting our license by the end of summer.  Then the really fun stuff begins!

Hope you all are having a great summer so far!



(btw…..the orange parachute in the above picture is me coming in to land on my very first solo jump:)

  1. Wow! I’ve always been too terrified to even consider sky diving, That’s amazing you overcame and did it anyway and It’s so nice to hear you had a great time 🙂 Sometimes creating jewelry seems like a boring hobby/job after I spent some time hopping freight trains… It’s funny how adrenaline changes everything 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

    That’s AWESOME! I’ve always wanted to do that but as I’ve gotten older I’ve become chicken myself (afraid I may have a heart attack, hahahaha) I did the next best thing went on a hot air balloon……They’re super fun without that fear of a heart attack! –When’s your next jump/ 🙂
