Amanda RDefinitely doing it!

Yup, it’s official. I’ll be helping out a nonprofit on Warped Tour and I will be flying out to the Chicago show. I’m pretty scared of going alone but I’m going to learn about what to expect before I go, and hopefully I’ll have things to do on the plane so I won’t think about being on it. 10 months ago


Amanda RIt's taken forever but I may finally do it

So up until this year I was terrified of flying and wouldn’t even consider getting on a plane. It’s not because I’m afraid of plane crashes – I’m actually not afraid of them at all. I just had a terrible fear of heights, and for me, being in a plane was the culmination of that fear and just out of the question. My family and friends have been on lots of vacations without me because I refused to get on a plane.

But this year, I dunno, I overcame so many of my fears and one of them was heights. It sounds silly but it started out with having to climb up a really tall (but sturdy!) ladder for my job. At first I was like, “no way am I doing that,” but I had to. I felt so light headed but I held on really tight, and when I got to the top, it was actually pretty cool that I was so high up and I could see the entire store. Then later in the year, my friend wanted to go to the top of a skyscraper for her birthday and I shocked myself by saying “why not?” It wasn’t the hugest, but about 72 floors or something like that, and I wasn’t scared at all. I got a little nervous just before going up, but I had no anxious feelings at all when I looked down at the city. I just thought it was beautiful and amazing.

And now, the thought of flying is just the next step up. Again, it sounds a little scary if I overthink it and makes me feel a little nervous in the pit of my stomach, but overall I’m not terrified and I don’t feel any reason to avoid it. And just in time, an opportunity has presented itself! I applied a while back to help out a nonprofit that is going on the Warped Tour music festival, and I’m pretty close to getting to do it, and if so I will likely have to fly either to get to my first city or to come home after my last city. But if not I think I just may treat myself to that UK vacation I’ve always wanted to go on.

It’s hard for me to convey how amazing this transformation is and how absolutely terrified I used to be of flying… I feel like I haven’t put any effort in and the fear just disappeared on its own. I don’t get it, but I’ll take it! 11 months ago
