like 2 months old? A baby at any rate. We flew from Seattle to LA for my aunt’s wedding, and I slept the whole time. Been on a plane at least once a year for almost every year since!

I was 16, flew alone and was petrified/terrified.  The opportunity to fly was available before then but I begged/pleaded with my dad for us not to fly b/c I had terrible nightmares about crashing.  Anyways, I worked myself up for it, my aunt was flying me to NYC from Indy to Chicago w/ a detour in Rochester so she could fly with me the rest of the way.  Boy was I so scared.  Before we took off, I met this really kind lady and her granddaughter, I flipped seats so that I was in the aisle and her granddaughter was at the window.  I actually winced as we were taking off b/c it felt so wrong and angled.  When we reached altitude, I got really light headed and thought I was going to pass out.  The kind lady grabbed my hand and held it.  She also gave me some bottled water.  I never felt so thankful in my life, she was like “you’re going to be okay, I’m right here if you need anything.”

The flight from Chicago to Rochester was very bumpy but the plane didn’t fall.  Coming back (reverse order) was fine, nothing memorable.  However, the following year I flew to D.C. and back, coming home we had some turbulence and the plane coasted downward.  I was sick to my stomach, ugh!  I was praying to God to not die (I’m melodramatic).  I hate the sensation of free fall (no roller coasters or sky diving for me).  So I won’t be flying for awhile (if ever).  My longest plane ride was 2.5 hrs (very short).

13, on a trip from TN to NY with my parents. The pilot brought me into the cockpit, put his hat on me, and gave me my wings. ๐Ÿ™‚
