I met up with my good friend Christina in New York City and showed her around the Big Apple. I have always wondered how flight attendants live their lives in almost endless motion. When I was younger, I wanted to become a flight attendant only so that I can see the world and travel to different places. I didn't have any idea back then what it takes to be a flight attendant and how hard it must be to be one. So far I have learned that the standard minimum height requirement is 1.6 meters, a college degree is also not necessarily required, only a high school diploma. Christina graciously offered me some insights and answers to some of my nagging questions about flight attendants.
I got a little surprise in the mail today from Delta Air Lines and at first I thought it was one of those postcards some companies mail you when you haven't been using their product or service in a very long time. I have not flown Delta this year so consequently my Medallion Qualification Miles (MQM), -Segments (MQS) and -Dollars (MQD) are all zeroes. It was either that or perhaps a reminder notification that my Delta Companion Certificate is expiring in a few months. It was much better!

I got an invite to +Nicole Gutierrez's graduation party so I drove to New York for the Memorial weekend with a stopover in Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) to pick up +Ging Antoni since she was flying from Lexington, KY. The drive from PHL to White Plains, NY was horrible. We drove through New Jersey's Garden State Parkway, which can be a little confusing at night and while we breezed through the toll booths thanks to E-Zpass, there were countless tolls for every few miles and on and on it seems to go.
