Fire eyes

I'm not entirely sure what I'll be for Halloween this year, but I do know that it will involve these sweet freakin demon eyes. On a related note, I can't recall the last time I've ever felt so dumb and incapable as when I tried to put these contacts in for the first time. Each one took about 20 minutes, no joke. Totally worth it though.

Happy Halloween :-)

Jumping out of a perfectly fine airplane

A longtime friend of mine named Joe has been working as a skydiving instructor now for almost two years, and for nearly just as long has been trying to get me to come out to the dropzone for a jump. Now mind you, Joe is a guy who can't be relied upon to keep his shoes tied, so relying on him to keep me from splatting on the ground was never something I'd want to test out.

However, a co-worker recently jumped with Joe and made it back all in one piece, and after she called me out for being a sissy I finally hit up Joe and we decided to jump out of a plane together. Long story short, I didn't die, and it was one of the coolest things I've ever done in my life.

And most importantly, I've got the video to prove it!
