The (Wo)Man on the Flying Trapeze

I did it (barely).  Another thing crossed off the bucket list!

I took a Trapeze Lesson at the NY Trapeze School and even though it was hard as fudgsicles, it was an awesomely fun time!  My friend Christie works there and has been trying to get me to go for ages.  I’m so glad I finally did!  Like I said though, it was HARD.  My arms still felt it a few days later…and my abs.  Getting on the bar was the hardest part.  At one point I got all tangled up in the wire.  Dallas, one of the instructors, did a great impression of me as I was flailing around like a drowned cat trying to get untangled.  Needless to say, I did manage to get some entertaining shots for you all.  Proof is below.

Here I am just about to jump off:

Ziplining Adventures

So one of the things on my bucket list is to go Ziplining.  I’ve always wanted to try it, but whenever I was places where I could (i.e. the Caribbean), I was leery of their safety measures.  Some of you might scoff at that, but hey, better safe than at the bottom of a jungle floor, I say!  Luckily, I found a place only an hour from me that did Zipline tours and managed to convince the bro and Meesh to tag along with me, to calm my fears for company’s sake.

We arrive and get set up with our gear.  You can see how terrified excited I am to get going!

Reflections on My Birthday :)

Today is my birthday and I’ve been thinking a lot about getting older… Next year I plan on leaving the country for a London Birthday vacation so I don’t HAVE to think about getting older because everybody knows if you’re not here then it doesn’t count–DUH

As I’ve been mulling over my age, I’ve also realized I’ve done some pretty amazing things over the past few years so I thought I’d reflect on some of them today 🙂
