5 Reasons This Flight Attendant Became a Slam-Clicker

“I don’t know why I’ve wasted so much of my life being social,” has become my new catchphrase. The Pandemic brought to light something that I had previously been too busy socializing to notice. I’m kind of an introvert.
I’ve been telling flight attendant friends “I just don’t have the energy to go out and find something exciting to do.” I’ve blamed my lack of exploring on the rental car shortage in the U.S., on being exhausted, on having SO much work to catch up on. But there is a possibility that something else is at play. I’ve become a slam-clicker.

So, How’s Work? 10 Ways Flying has Changed since the Pandemic

As a full-time flight attendant flying through the pandemic, I’ve been getting a lot of questions.
How is work going for you? Do you feel safe? Is your job safe? How are people behaving? What is it like being on the road in these times? I figured I may as well write a post about it to answer these common questions, clear things up, and reflect on just how we’re getting through these very unique times.

You know we flight attendants fly for free. What you may not know is that some of the lucky people in our lives also get to bask in the free-flighted glory of our job—just for knowing us!

8 Reasons Summer Travel Is The Worst

Aaahhhhh, the joys of summer travel…
Said no flight attendant ever.
Ask any flight attendant and they’ll all tell you: Summer Travel is the WORST.

Don’t get me wrong, I love Summer. Being a New Englander, having a long history with all four seasons, Summer is easily my favorite. But when you combine this magical time of year with air travel, the results are…well…not so great.

Discomfort at its Finest

I’ve just finished my first week of group Spanish classes at Toucan Spanish School in Parque Lleras, and so far it’s going swimmingly. I was concerned about spending too much time with my English-speaking classmates (Have I told y’all about [...]

How to spend the perfect day in Paros

he island of Paros was the second stop of our Greek Isles girls trip last summer- one of my favorite trips of all time if I’m being honest. Tucked nicely in our itinerary between Mykonos and Santorini, Paros was a gorgeous little reprieve from the crowds and the bustling nightlife of its more well-known neighbors. After the partying in Mykonos, we were happy to dry out a bit and take in the scenery and slower pace. The ferry ride took only an hour, but disembarking in Paros was like stepping into a whole different world.

2020: The Best, The Worst, and How We Made it Through

It’s New Years Eve! And we are all ready to kiss this year goodbye. But before we leave 2020 in the rearview and never look back, I wanted to do just a litttttle bit more reflecting. Come on, it will be fun.
Rather than go on and on about my own personal highs and lows, I decided to do something a little different. I wanted to ask others—you—what 2020 was like. The highs, the lows, the wins and losses, the things that made us cry and the things that brought us joy.
