I was so excited to see that you have this amazing opportunity to Skydive in San Diego!!
As you can see on my blog- the first thing I have listed on my Bucket List is to skydive (anywhere in the world) :
If you read earlier on my blog- I posted about how 2011 was a whirlwind of change in my life. I’ve realized that: 1) You can’t be afraid to try new things, 2) I need to surround myself with people who make me happy (and more importantly distance those negative people in my life), and 3) Live life each day to the maximum- it’s too short to live it any less.
I’m changing myself for the better, and what an awesome way it would be to start the new year with jumping out of a plane with no strings attached :) ?! I’m not going to lie, it does scare me a bit… but I’d be so upset with myself if I never tried it! Life is about stepping out of your comfort zone, and taking advantage of trying new things. If you make my dream a reality- I’d cherish it more than you will ever know.
I live in Pasadena (LA), and visit San Diego quite frequently since my Mom just moved there towards the end of last year. Southern California is my home and heart.
Also my 24th birthday is March 15- and this would be the ultimate gift package (not to mention a check off the ole’ bucket list)!!! I’m ready for an adventure that I’ll never forget.
Thank you for hosting this contest- My heart is skipping with even the slight possibility of skydiving this year :D
