This Girl is Certified

I should be looking over my medical handbook in preparation for tomorrow’s class, but it’s almost midnight and although nothing good ever happens after 2AM, nothing good gets retained after 11PM.  That’s my motto, anyway.

It was a long week, although it was fairly easy.  Monday was a big day because we did drill tests and evaluations on the Super 80 (I passed, certified on my first aircraft yay!), but Friday was the important day because it was Valentine’s Day and there was wine.  Yes, they gave us a wine tasting at flight attendant training. We have to be able to merchandise it in first class, after all!

The rest of the week was spent in the galley. None of seemed to grasp the concept of the service on the plane, the actual emergencies and evacuations are much more straight forward.  Some of us even thought that was easier.  Service should go a certain way but it also involves a personal flare, which none of us have developed yet.  They say that will develop once we get in the air, but I guess in the meantime we just have to wing it. Haha, get it? But seriously, the galley is confusing.

The big topic of conversation was the base situation, meaning where each person will be based.  The choices are Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Miami, D.C. and Dallas.  I want L.A. for the sheer convenience and because I love it, although I think Miami would be a really fun city to experience.  We all thought we would find out our bases on Thursday or Friday, but so far, nothing.  There are rumors galore about why this is, and when we’ll find out.  I even suggested starting a pool to bet when we’ll get them.  I hope it’s sooner rather than later, so I can start making plans.

Week 4 is all about the 737, so by the end of the week I should be certified on 2 planes! Wish me luck!
