Kara Mulder Flight Attendant blogger

My life is determined by three pages in a digital PDF document, sent to me every month around the 15th. This is my schedule. It’s also available on a website portal, which from that access point, it can be changed, altered, updated, erased, F***ed up—but not by me. I can do nothing with this schedule except show up to the airport when it tells me to. Show up and smile.

There are 730.001 hours in a month. As a flight attendant, this is how I spend my time…

I spend more hours abroad. I basically live in hotels. I waste time on IG and FB between the hours of 2a-4a in any timezone when I can’t sleep. On average, I sleep only 5.35hrs per night. I’m always tired. Life is always exciting, and I really need to include more kitesurfing in my lifestyle… Hashtag—”goals.”
