Ok Hunter, there's no turning back now. There's no reason to be nervous anymore, it's out of your hands. Only thing you can do now is take a deep breath and hope for the best. You got this.


9...
So far so good, no need to panic. Everything is going according to plan. You've done everything you could up to this point. It's all up to fate now.


8...
Deep breaths Hunter, deep breaths.


7...
You're about to find out if all that hard work and sacrifice was worth it, you've been through this before, no pressure. I've got a pretty good feeling about this one.


6...
Isn't it such a beautiful and starry night? You should really calm down and appreciate this special moment. Nothing exists right now but you and your dreams. Embrace it.


5...
Ok, you've just reached the halfway point and you're still alive. That's a pretty good sign. The moment of truth is just around the corner.


4...
Hunter, do you always talk to yourself like this?


3...
Man.. did time slow down or something, or does this really feel like it's taking forever?


2...
Dear God, or Universe, or whatever you are.. I want to take this moment to thank you for everything you've done for me and for everything you have blessed me with. For my family and friends, for my loving dog and cat, for the new pair of glasses I really wanted, I really do love them, and most importantly, for the guidance and patience I needed to reach this point in my life. I owe this all to you.

Dear Diary,

So.. 'My Little Toy Rocket' attempt #53 was a failure yet again. It did reach altitudes of about 7 feet, which is about a foot higher than #52, so I guess I'm making a bit of progress. I'm not giving up yet, I've gone too far to give up now.

On to #54, wish me luck.






blast off!

lol..this is what happened to my drone I flew for the first time a few days ago. (well, not the explosion part) . I had a friend with me and on its maiden flight it crashed and burned about 2 minutes in... The second flight was a bit better..so on and so forth.

I kept getting more nervous every time I tried to fly it because I kept crashing it. Finally just left it in the tree...

Thanks for reminding me

The mechanics can get pretty tricky and takes some getting used to. Be careful


Thanks for reading.

I really enjoyed writing this, especially the melodramatic explosion. Lol
