Hey fam!! Today, I flew from Seattle to Boston, Massachusetts!! This was my first redeye flight ever and I think it went pretty well. The only part that I did not like about the flight was taxiing off the runway and to the gate. The lighting has been terrible ever since the addition of clouds and I could barely see the whole way to the gate. Luckily, I was able to taxi to the correct gate. However, it was a struggle especially since it was sunrise and the gold lines and the gold sun were not a match 🤦🏾‍♂️ Other than that, the flight went amazing!! I set alarms to wake me up for sharp turns, and I was up for the entire landing!! Usually, I fall asleep just before descent and end up messing up the whole flight 🙄 But by the grace of God, I was up and made a very nice landing into Boston this morning 🙌🏾 I took a little nap after the flight, so I’m good for the day. Anyway, y’all have a great day and let’s see what this A330 is gon’ look like at 12 😂

Summary

Thanks for chugging along with me, everybody!! I truly appreciate ALL the support that I get from y’all 😊 I enjoy being able to share my aviation enthusiasm with people of all walks of life and all over the Earth. If you ask me, this is how God wants the rest of the world to be… Coming together and just sharing our love and passions with each other 🤷🏾‍♂️ This community is such a beautiful place. I know I’ve cussed some people out or whatever, but I have love for everybody and doing this series and seeing all the support I get keeps that love strong!! Anyway, y’all be safe, keep God close to you, and keep in greasing those landings (or trying 😂)!!
