Cliff’s Notes: Jordan Edition

Don't worry, the test isn't cumulative

As an English major I never resorted to using Cliff’s Notes. Never. Stop. (No really, don’t tell, or they’ll take away my degree). But I figured that style would be a great way to get to know some fundamental things about me, fast. Also, not for nothing, but I’ve heard that Cliff wrote some really good notes on David Copperfield which I absolutely read because Charles Dickens is a joy and not at all boring or redundant.

The illustrious Charles D- Google what this man named his 8 million kids, I’ll wait

There’s a 95% chance these two have no idea which airport they’re currently in

Okay but shrews are actually adorable

About Jordan

Corn-fed Midwesterner with a Brit Lit degree she only mildly regrets; though being able to recite Chaucer passages in an Olde English accent is kind of a cool party trick/ should tell you all you need to know about her college experience.

She graduated a few years after her first “unprecedented economic collapse”, so she ran away to Switzerland as an Au Pair for a year – the only things she retained were a renewed appreciate zeal for peanut butter and the ability to bark at you to “eat slower” in halting German.

Later, she’d embark on her most significant career leap up until that point in her life: becoming a flight attendant for a major US airline. It was a good job, and she loved it…for a while. But while she made lifelong friends, and learned so much about life, something still felt like it was missing.

Did she once turn down a frat party on a Friday night to write a 20-page paper on Taming of the Shrew for naught? (She was very cool and had MANY friends).

And then she found the job listing at ELP- and she saw an opportunity for her two great loves to merge: content writing, and the weird, complicated world of aviation. It’s only been a few months, but she’s never looked back. Except once, when she was really craving a number 20 from that place in Phoenix; my kingdom for a sandwich.

Themes

  • funny yet comprehensive analysis of aviation news in real time

  • irreverent tales from her former life

  • commentary on ELP’s legacy of improving the lives on the front lines of aviation

  • debates on why service standards should be reworked- cookies in the morning and pretzels in the afternoons because America is NOT ready to handle the mantle of this choice

At my funeral scatter stale pretzels and Biscoff crumbs instead of dirt

Everyone knows you don’t have to process emotions if you’re too physically exhausted

Symbolism

  • baking – representative of the crumbling futility of this life, tempered only by a temporary sweetness, overshadowing our struggles all too briefly

  • recreational running – Jordan literally running from her problems/ the ever-turning wheels of the entrepreneurial spirit that drives us all

  • cats – representative of everything pure and lovely in this world, she would jump in front of traffic or join an MLM for them

  • A Tree Grows in Brooklyn – her favorite book she reads every fall/ a commentary on the trials of growing up/ looks legit when you’re reading at a hipster cafe

  • True Crime- a favorite pastime to reflect upon/ everyone knows if you talk about it incessantly, it won’t happen to you, right? Right?!

In both the ELP Blog Experience and the blogs on Jordan’s Journey you will find a well-rounded interpretation of the aviation industry. The first, still penned by Jordan’s hand, will provide a more straight edged perspective on all things airline, as well as exciting company highlights, new products, and operation tips we want to share with you.

The latter has jokes and a wit informed by the lessons learned from flying with a major operation/interacting with the travelling public. Expect tales to entertain, with all matter of topics including a compelling thesis on the perils of entering the plane lavatory in socks (it’s not water, you should probably burn off your feet).

While these are only the…Cliff’s Notes version of who I am, I’m excited for you to get to know me more each and every week with every post of Jordan’s Journey and ELP’s Blog Experience. Oh, the places we’ll go!

Thrilled to be here (alert the media- we have a snark free caption)
