After Wednesday, I’ve just been kind of taking it easy. Not really studying, but still thinking about flying a lot. My boyfriend is also home from work, so we talk about it a lot.
In hindsight, I think I’m glad it went down that way. Otherwise, I might have had to face this nerves/scared/whatever thing during my first solo, if I didn’t own up to it earlier. I’m still a little worried I won’t get over it. But I’ve been thinking of ways during training to help me feel better.
I know my instructor likes to gentle couch me sometimes, just small things to remind me to switch my vision and hold it off. I think for myself I need complete silence to feel more confident in myself. And then (thinking waaaay ahead, and it might not be a problem then, but I doubt it) when doing the 3 required hours of check ride prep, I think it’s better for me to do with different instructors and have them treat it like the check ride. It may help my nerves a lot flying with different people who I’m not comfortable with yet. That’s a long way down the road, but just popped into my mind as a way to help myself. I need to get over this first hump before that.
Of course, me being who I am, I go to Pinterest to try to find some nice quotes I can think about and feel more motivated and encouraged. These were ones that were pretty apropo to what I needed to hear the other day.
