SFO, LAX, or JFK?


Tomorrow starts week two (of five) for my flight attendant training. I can't believe how much information there is to learn with this job. Apparently it's not just about handing out peanuts and looking pretty anymore (kidding)! In fact, there are training days dedicated to delivering babies, firefighting, and SELF DEFENSE! Say whaaaaat? Better believe I'll bust out my ninja skills if a passenger crosses the line!

"I SAID SIT DOWN, SIR!!!"


(Hahaha - That gif is killing me.)

Seriously though, this has been such a great week. Every morning, when I wake up at the butt crack of dawn, I'm so excited to get up and get moving so I can learn more and hang out with everyone. I can honestly tell you that NO OTHER job in my life has made me feel this excited to wake up at god-awful hours or to go in on a Saturday. This must be a good sign, yes??

Here's the one iffy part with my situation, though. Upon interviewing for this job, they asked me, "Are you willing to relocate if need be?" And of course, wanting to come across as easy-going and a team player, I responded with, "Absolutely!! New York? No problem!!!"

All the while thinking there was no way that would actually happen and hell no I don't want to relocate.

However, I'm quickly learning it very well could be part of my near future.

Next week, we get to "bid" for our home base. The choices are between SFO, LAX, and JFK.

This is the order I will be putting them:

1. San Francisco (SFO)
2. Los Angeles (LAX)
3. New York (JFK)

We will have confirmation on NOVEMBER 1ST as to where we will be assigned. And then, we will have TWO WEEKS until we graduate and have to move to where we have been assigned. TWO!

I am majorly crossing my fingers that I'm not assigned to New York. I mean, don't get me wrong, I do love that city, but it's just that we've only been in San Francisco for 5 months! That's not nearly long enough, people! I've just begun to really feel like this is home for us and I'm not ready to give it up just yet, you know what I mean?

Plus, our apartment lease isn't up until June and we just got this car as well. So if I DO get assigned there, it looks like The Dizzle and I will be long-distance lovers for a little while. And let me tell you, I have done the long-distance thing and me no likey.

But anyway, I'm trying not to stress about it because I could very well stay here in San Francisco and then there was no point in worrying about it in the first place. So I will just hope for the best and trust that it will all work out okay (because doesn't it usually?).

Buuuttt just in case, and to go along with the whole "plan for the worst" thing, any New Yorkers out there looking for a new roomie??? Eh? Eh??? Could be amaaaazzzinnnggg. ;)

  1. I've been keeping updated on your flight attendant journey and it seems so cool! I have only rode on a plane once and that was for my honeymoon 3 years ago and I'm 26, lol! I think its pretty cool how you get to learn how to deliver babies and all that. You don't think about that when you think of flying, well unless you were pregnant, lol!

    So excited for you! Have a great day!

  2. I'll have my fingers crossed for you! I didn't realize that flight attendants were trained to deliver babies. Makes me feel better getting pregnant someday and flying.

  10. If you end up in NYC, we could happy hour all the time :) I'm moving there in 3 weeks. But, to be nice, I'll keep my fingers crossed that you end up in SFO. Moving stinks.

  15. This is such a cool new adventure you're on! I hope you get to stay at SFO... San Fran is definitely my favorite city, but aside from that (ha!) it's hard to uproot when you've hardly had time to set root somewhere in the first place. I'm sure it will all work out for the best. :D

    Cheers!
