have i ever told you guys that i have this great fear of flying? in general, i have this great fear of heights. being in a plane that is thousands of miles up in the air (i actually don't know if i got the numbers right) just makes me very uncomfortable. yes, travelling by air is quicker and saves you tons of time but just thinking of the entire vessel suddenly falling just scares the bejeezus out of me. i mean, i know how to swim so if a ship sinks, i can try to survive. but if a plane falls, i wouldn't know what to do! okay so i'm being morbid and i have to stop myself.
anyway, i had to face my fear of flying for the Bloggers United 4 event and i couldn't be happier that i had my two sisters to accompany me. also if it weren't for joseph gordon levitt's funny performance on SNL, i wouldn't have survived the flight. December began with a typhoon and after that, it was raining intermittently all throughout the month. so on the day of our flight, we had grey skies and the dreaded turbulence. to top it all off, we had the worst landing of all time --- literally, our butts flew a feet from our seats when we hit the ground. kudos to the pilot -- not!
