“Skydiving” or “Hey, I’m on the internet!”

Ever Google yourself? I’m sure many of you have at least once in your lifetime. I decided to give it another shot tonight see if www.joelmaust.com–this site–would pull up if I searched for “Joel Maust.” It didn’t (probably because I haven’t submitted it to any search engines), but I did find something that actually relates to me.

Check this out–a skydiving site. On one of the pictures, I’m the featured tandem skydiver! And there’s another… One I just noticed here–same site, different picture. How cool.

I went skydiving my junior year–that blessed and cursed junior year at Spring Arbor University. It was a tough year; lots of late nights, lots of long papers, lots of searching for meaning and purpose. And I’m just now figuring that stuff out.

Anyway, skydiving was kind of an escape from all that. What a rush. I think I’ll post the editorial I wrote about it for the Crusader and maybe even create a new gallery with the skydiving photo essay I did for Photojournalism class.

If you ever get a chance to skydive, I recommend you do so. It’s pretty nerve-racking being taken 13,000 ft. up, but once you get in the free, open atmosphere, it’s pure heaven!
