June 19th, 2015
12:00am to 6:00am – No sleep whatsoever
7:00am – Go to Penn Station
7:49am – Depart from Penn Station to Speonk
9:45am – Arrive to Long Island Skydiving Center
10:00am – Sign about 200 times the creepy release form acknowledging that I can easily die
11:00am – Get all geared-up and ready to go
11:15:am – Say bye bye to your loved ones on the ground, and take off!
11:25am – Keep climbing to 10,000 feet above the ground
11:30am – Pray to G-d because you're about to jump!
The moment Mike opened the airplane's door I experienced an adrenaline rush for the first time in my life. I always imagined that at that moment I would be crying, passing out or panicking, but it was quite the opposite. I was extremely excited and eager to jump. The feeling was like nothing I've ever experienced before in my life, I can't even begin to describe it, so the best thing I can say is: TRY IT! It is so, so, so worth it and there is no way you will regret having this experience. My only piece of advice is for those of you who get motion-sick easily to take a Dramamine before jumping. That's it, no pain, no dying.
For the first time ever I consider myself somewhat brave :)
