Hey, look! Two of my favorite things, side by side. 

Who would have known that a non-aviation enthusiast would be so fun to have at the airport?

I’ve been forming a theory about the Spitfire: Let’s call it the Spitfire Origin Point Theory.  

I’ve come to the conclusion that the airplane was built around a single arbitrary part. Spitty is a pain in the butt to work on most of the time, because nothing seems to fit right unless you have the perfect, special order of replacing the pieces. So I think that the airplane is basically a giant, snap-together puzzle centered around that single part, whatever it may be. 

I’ve been searching for that origin point part for many moons now. It’s like my holy grail. I’m an aviation acolyte and this quest is my exercise in devotion.

(I want everyone to know that I’m kidding. I just really love the Spitfire. I think it’s impossible to work on because these aircraft only had a six week lifespan during the war. So the people assembling them didn’t have to worry about a stupid girl in 2014 trying to remove the top fuel tank so her dad can fix a leak in the cockpit.)

Jenn’s free Russian motorcycle rides!

This thing is so fun. I want to drive everyone around the airport on it.

Bikini bikini I’m a pale weenie 

My friends and I attempted to free dive in the kelp forests off Leo Carrillo State Beach. I think I might post the footage later if I can figure out how to edit it. 

Summertiiiiiiime let’s fly airplanes

In other news, my flight instructor is once again blackmailing the shady guys at the west end of the airport to get me flight time.

10PM

Just got clearance from my parents to use their car to teach my boyfriend to drive stick shift. Cuz I’m sure as heck not teaching him in my car. :O

This is so exciting. I want to share the things I like with the people I like.

I haven’t flown without controls in front of me in a while. Today I was a passenger during my dad’s flight lesson, and, honestly, it was one of the most enjoyable flights I’ve ever had!

I don’t wanna do my instrument. I wanna spend all my money flying the Eagle and my sister’s Skybutt.

But I also want my commercial without restrictions and I need more hours. :’(

Everyone check out my favorite picture of me and Noah. :D 

This was about three minutes before I learned my lesson about hopping across streams. 

Just kidding. I’ll never learn that lesson. #soggyshoesforlyfe
