Saturday morning I had a solo flight. I hadn't flown all by myself in probably a year and a half. I was really nervous about it.

I went into the groupthink irc channel looking for encouragement. Pyrax told me exactly what I needed. She told me I could do it. Sometimes simple encouragement is all a person needs.

I calmed down, went out, and had a successful flight. After that flight it wasn't a big deal to go out and fly solo on Monday.

I just wanted to publicly thank Pyrax and remind people that sometimes it's the small things that help the most.
