the longest 60 seconds of my life

Warning! Completely unfashion related!

the longest 60 seconds of my life by dereknguyenx3

So, you may not remember but a few weeks ago was my birthday. For my birthday present, I was able to go skydiving! Courtesy of my brother! It was truly an amazing experience but it was seriously the longest 60 seconds of my life! When I saw how high I was, the first words that came out of my mouth. . . "oh shit." What did I just get myself into! Regardless, I have no regrets and now I can cross skydiving off my "to do before I die list!" But would I ever do it again? Who knows, but I'm really glad I did it! I believe we were about 13,000ft in the air! Cray Cray.

I just wanted to share some photos and my video! Unfortunately, some audio was lost in the video and there was some technical glitch with the camera so I only got 3 photos throughout my whole jump. But it's ok! I hope you enjoy the video and you get hear me talk! Don't be frightened!

The place I went to is Skydive City in Zephyrhills, Florida!

feel free to follow me on twitter :)
ps. Like my sexy jumpsuit?! Just kidding, it was provided for the jump by Skydive City! At least it incorporates the bright color and color block trend!

Hi Derek,
Wow! You're ace!
It's on my list too and I seem to be moving it to the bottom everytime as I can't bear the thought of me possibly passing out or doing something quite embarassing.
Thanks for visiting my blog, by the way.
Have a great week!
Joy xx
