Why You Might As Well Jump

Skydivers

“Well, I’ll just throw up on myself.”

That is the thought running through my head while sitting in the airplane I will soon be jumping out of. I committed to this skydiving trip months ago, wanting to celebrate my friend’s birthday in style, and now with the moment of truth approaching—and no restrooms on board—I’m preparing for everything.

As the first one in line to jump, I have a clear view of the reality awaiting me.

The air is turning colder, the world below is getting smaller, and it won’t be long until we reach the drop zone.
