As previously mentioned, the Swimming and Diving season just started for us last week and we’re already getting intensive with our trainings. We’re not practicing just once a day, but almost like twice a day if you incorporate the dry-land work-outs and weight lifting in the schedule. Last week, I was surprised with five new divers coming in! We were so worried that it’ll be just the three of us, two girls and one boy, but then three boys and two girls walked on and wanted to dive. My coach was extremely pleased to see that we have a large group this year, as it will give the team more of a “family” sense. I’m really excited to see where this goes in the season, getting to know them and diving on three meters once again. I was out of 3-meter diving for three years due to a shoulder injury I had. I forgot how much I loved doing 3-meter diving!
I have attached a picture of the team, but the picture is missing one boy, so there’s really supposed to be eight of us there, plus the coach.
What’s going on around the campus? A lot of things, there are SO MANY flyers and event advertising for the month of October. There’s a trip to a pumpkin farm, a trip to a picnic, a trip to zoos, etc. If only I didn’t have diving meets on the weekends, I would be going all out and attending all of these events. That’s one thing I learned as a college student, “When you see an opportunity, take it and make memories from it.” For the first two years at college, I did not attend enough of the events, go out in the Rochester or New York State area, or do enough outings with friends. Now I’m a senior, and I’m making sure I’m traveling and going on adventures! You will never get bored in Rochester, and I can guarantee you that.
