I finally jumped into the sky! SKYDIVES forever!

So it finally happened today! I jumped out of a plane to raise money for the Amy Winehouse Foundation! Thanks to everyone who sponsored me. It was the most unnatural amazing experience ever with my friend Bryony Marie Fry!  I honestly thought I would be so afraid and it is a little bit when you’re sitting on the edge hanging out of the plane door 12,000 feet up but I actually was so calm and found the whole experience fairly therapeutic! You get such a natural high and I wanted to go straight back up again! TAKE ME!




Clearly loving it being thrown out of the plane!! Thanks to Mike who was in control of my life for those wonderful 4 minutes!

I would do that everyday of the week if I could! It’s good to scare the S*&T out of yourself and risk your life every now and then! It keeps life all that more spicy!!

  1. For a while, in bed, right before falling asleep, right at the edge of loosing control over the thoughts, I do the sky diving thing without a chute… Probably not nearly as the same as IRL but it gives a free fall feeling for a sec or two before coming back to full consciousness just like hitting the ground. One day maybe, I ll do real deal… maybe. Cool stuff you did here! 🙂
