Hi guys, sorry I've been so quiet recently.

I've been in training to become a Delta Air Lines Flight Attendant since the 17th of January and it's like I'm on an intense reality show, sans the drama lol (my classmates are incredibly easygoing). People from all over the States fly into Atlanta, get lodged in a hotel together and spend all their waking hours in class and studying at a state-of-the-art training facility, and you have to pass tests to continue on or get sent home. I have hardly been online or able to communicate with people due to the immense work load. Like I get up at 6 or 7am and get home at 8 or 9pm to study until midnight O_O.

I graduate at the beginning of March so after that I should have a more normal schedule.

For those wondering - I grew up in a household that traveled the world thanks to my Stepfather's travel benefits as a Flight Attendant at Lufthansa Airlines. The travel bug is ingrained in me and I've always wanted to follow in his footsteps and become a FA as well. Being that I speak 3 languages fluently and love meeting people, this really was a dream job for me. Delta is absolutely the best in the biz and I am incredibly lucky to be a part of that family now.

I will still continue to cosplay, go to cons in the States and internationally, make costumes and do photoshoots. Just let me get through this hella intense training period and get settles into my base and get in the air. I'll hopefully see many more of you from all over the world in the future.

In the meantime, I wanted to give a shout-out to my friend Judy Stephens, who featured me on Marvel.com for their first Cosplay Profile. Judy is not only one of Marvel's web designers, but an incredibly talented and hard working photographer as well. Check out her blog and her photos on Marvel.com!

See you around, Deviants! I have to go to class now for more tests lol!
  • Mood: Cheerful

Oh Please don't go to DELTA, you know Virgin Has a Airline it is sexy,swank and other cool words. You have to much style to be in an airline that is often frowned upon.

I'm proud to be a part of Delta - it's an awesome airline and an amazing place to work at. Delta also flys to more world wide destinations than any other airline and I have free travel privileges to all of them now. I would not leave Delta for another airline.

My father is a captain at Delta and I always joke around with him about becoming a flight attendant. I have heard some horror stories but I think the benefits are so worth it. Is it hard to get into the Delta FA crew?

Btw congrats! :D

Cheers to that and welcome to the Delta family indeed :) I'm just a frequent flyer on Delta (lots of business trips -_-) but I gotta give them that: they are indeed a good family :) Good luck on your exams and I hope you'll enjoy the experience as a FA. I don't really know how they handle all those jet lags, and I admire their patience!
Hope to see you on one of those flights one day then ;)

This is an amazing job where you learn for.
I love airplanes as well sinds I was young and I always wanted to be an airhostess. They only don't need more hostesses in my country... That's to bad for me...

I just thought, you do these character amazingly. Did you ver think of putting your twist on some that traditionally male character. Like you do that girl thats like Wolverine with the black outfit & the long metal blades but something like taking Wolverine and doing something with it but female...... you know what I mean???!!!

Judy is so full of amazing win :) I always thought that flight attendants had like no social lives because they were always in the air or had constant jet lag. Shows how much I know, don't it? xD Best of luck on all your tests; I'm sure you'll pass with flying colors (no pun intended.....seriously :p)!
