Whenever you are feeling down just remember that the abbreviation for Grissom Air Force Base in Indiana is GUS.
As a young student pilot I went on a solo cross country with a stop at that little airport to the southeast, Kokomo (OKK). I was still nervous about talking to air traffic control (which is pretty ironic now in hindsight) so I didn’t want to call up the tower at Grissom. I was scared they’d be like “Uhh, okay, you’re landing at Kokomo, we don’t care,” but I was doubly scared of accidentally violating their airspace without calling them, so my solution was to make a circuitous straight in approach to the northeast runway with the wind behind me. Naturally I had to go around twice, making right traffic even though I believe the procedure for that runway called for left. It remains one of the dumber decisions of my time as a student.
Though I do still chuckle to myself now when I provide flight following to a clearly nervous student pilot. Ohhhh youth.
