One of those days you want to pretend youre deathly ill..

Today , I had my first swim meet! I was SO nervous! There were so many people there , and most of them we pretty competitive, being that I only entered for the fun of it ... I was feeling a little out of place.. I only just started swimming again this year and most of these people have been swimming a REALLY long time. Although they seperate the groups in level of expirience I was still feeling pretty jittery. My first race was set to begin and as I stood on the platform I was awaiting the annoucer ( usually they say on your marks which is where you prepare to dive and the buzzer goes and you dive in). The annoucer decided to refrain from getting us prepared and the buzzer went. I have rather slow reflexes so I was still waiting for him to talk.. it added a good couple seconds and a fail attempt at a dive which slowed me down a lot. I ended up coming last but it was only encouragment too keep practicing so I can do better next time!

In love with these lyrics

Up with your turret
Aren't we just terrified?
Shale, screen your worry from what you won't ever find
Don't let it fool you
Don't let it fool you...down
Down's sitting round, folds in the gown
Sea and the rock below
Cocked to the undertow
Bones blood and teeth erode, with every crashing node
Wings wouldn't help you
Wings wouldn't help you...down
Down fills the ground, gravity's proud
You barely are blinking
Wagging your face around
When'd this just become a mortal home?
Won't, won't, won't, won't
Won't let you talk me
Won't let you talk me…down
Will pull it taut, nothing let out
bon iver & st vincent

The Feng Shui Way

I am practicing the art of feng shui. My room is currently in phase one: de cluttering
Before and after pics will soon be posted!

Who knew..

" My Daddy always said Childhood is the happiest time of your life but my Mom says its the time you try to get over for the rest of your life. I think my Mom is right"
-Hope Floats

I'm so happy that somebody finally said that, Ive always been so regretful of my not so happy childhood for a long long time. Hearing this finally made me feel like why do I have to feel so eager to follow the mould of everyone else? Ill be happy doing what I want at any time of my life, its not all downhill from here..
