Wow, it's been since November the last time I wrote up a journal entry. I'm still alive on here guys, not to worry. I haven't been posting much due to school and visiting family but I'm back now!! Here's what's been going on.
School was hectic and fast. It's a 300 hour course that consisted of 3 classes: Cruise Line, Travel Agent, and Flight Attendant. My main focus was flight attendant of course. Over the course of my schooling, many FA companies, a few cruise lines, and 1 travel agency came to our school. If we wanted to go out for a position, we had the option to be interviewed by them. I was turned down by a couple of flight attendant positions and let me just say that it broke my heart. Seeing as this is something I felt passionate about doing. Not long afterwards, I interviewed for the Norwegian Cruise Line position as a back up plan in case I didn't get picked up by an airline. With that, I got hired by Norwegian. It wasn't something I wanted to do but I rather graduate with a job rather than coming out with nothing. All was lost for me and it was a couple of weeks before I graduate til Transtates and GoJet Airlines came. They were the last airlines that came by the school. So this was my last chance getting hired. I decided to go for GoJet only because they pay more and allows me to work on bigger aircrafts with 1 other FA. So, I got up early, put on a skirt, put on make-up, brought all of my documents, got on the bus, and prepared for the interview. I was a bit nervous but at the same time, I felt confident. They told us usually they're pretty quick with getting back to people if they got the job. After the interview and as I was in my last class, a teacher called me and a couple of other people from different classrooms and was told to sit in the auditorium. This completely took me by surprise cause I honestly thought we were all in trouble but then I looked around and I felt it might have something to do with the interviews that very same morning. Turns out everyone who was in this room(including me) got hired by one of the airlines. CAN YOU GUYS BELIEVE IT?! I'M GONNA BE A FLIGHT ATTENDANT FOR GOJET! I've worked for 2 years to finally get the job I always wanted and I FINALLY achieved it. I was crying in tears and so was the rest of my family when I told them the news. Ironically enough, my training starts on my birthday: April 13th
Here's a recent selfie of me out of cosplay, on my way to my graduation ceremony.
After graduating with a certificate of perfect attendance AND being hired by an airline, I decided to attend ROFCON for Saturday night and Sunday. I got to see so many people there. Bless you all for coming up and hugging and congratulating me. I'm so happy to be able to see all of my nerd friends after 10 weeks of harsh reality. The only cosplay I brought was Izaya. I was planning on bringing Kageyama, but the weather was just too cold and windy. So I only cosplayed him on Sunday. Saturday night I was mostly chilling with my friends and celebrating my safe return and accomplishments. If you saw me on Sunday, here's a selfie of my Izaya cosplay. I also had a shoot for him too. Expect some shots coming back from that.
After ROFCON weekend, I did a private shoot for my school uniform Haru near the cherry trees. Bless my friend reikoheartsu
for being the photographer. She's still a photographer in training but I think she's gonna go far in this industry. She took some fabulous shots of me at both Redwing Park and the Pagoda in Norfolk. Expect some more Haru pics in the future,
Then after about a few days winding down, I went to go visit family up in Ohio for a week. I might as well see them now cause once I'm a flight attendant, I don't know when the next time I will visit. Plus it's been awhile since I last saw them due to working at the NEX and not getting the days off I wanted seeing them.
Sadly, I will NOT be attending the DC Sakura Matsuri due to my training but that's okay. I'm just uber glad that I got the career I wanted. Maybe next year will be different. I would like to visit the one in Philadelphia. I keep seeing how beautiful the location is.
-phew- Wow, that's a lot of information but that's what's been going on with me. Cons are going to be hard to attend now that I have this job. BUT, I will in fact be stopping by in quite of few places as a flight attendant. So if I stop by in your neighborhood, layover included, maybe we can have dinner, have a private photoshoot, you name it. Layovers usually last from 1-2 days depending on the situation. If you wanna visualize where I go, here's a map of the places GoJet travels to. I will be on either United or Delta flights. It is rather small but that's how far I can maximize it. Hope to see you guys in the neighborhood. If you would like to follow more of my work, here's a few sites to check out:
