Some More Swimming

So when I hurt my knee I was on a swim break. However since I'm back to practice and I also had a meet. Well, actually I had two meets. One of my meets was on Saturday and my other was on Monday. I know it sounds weird. 'Why would you have a meet on a school night, that's just crazy.' It was actually a practice meet.

The summer team is way more laid back compared to the winter team. We play games and the meets are less competitive. We had this practice meet for the new people swimming on the summer team. My mom was the starter. That means she was the one who said "take your mark".

The other meet was a real meet for 10 and older's. Since I'm thirteen I went to the meet. Sadly because I am no longer 9-12 I cant swim 50's anymore. I have to swim twice that length. I won first place in my 100 butterfly. I won second place in my hundred backstroke. I also won third place in my hundred freestyle.

SCUBA

I have recently been taking SCUBA classes. I had mentioned that I was going to do them before but now I have actually done a few classes I am going to talk about it a little bit. First I am going to make a hyperlink  HERE in case you want to check out the website.

My class is mostly adults so if your thinking it is a class for kid's, its not. The instructors are really nice too. I had a bit of trouble doing one of the skills and the instructors really helped me and worked with me until I could do that skill. The instructors go through everything and make me feel safe SCUBA diving.

Over all the class if fun and safe. I would totally recommend it to anybody who is looking to become a certified diver. They go over everything and you can stay back if you don't get something and its just a fun class to go to. I look forward to it every weekend.

Perfect

In my mind I see the world as a wonderful place. Some people don't feel the same way. In my mind the world is perfect, but to me perfect doesn't mean there are no flaws. I personally feel like perfect is what you think, if something in your eyes is so great. That in my mind  is the definition of perfect.

Dictionaries are helpful. For vocabulary, or helping you understand a word. But dictionaries don't define us. Even perfect for example. I don't use the exact definition to my use. I see the world as perfect, but not flawless.

So I'm not saying I am against the definitions. I am not against other peoples thoughts. I am not even against dictionaries. I am only saying that sometimes we need to stray off of our path. I think we need to chose our own definitions sometimes.

PT

I know I have blogged about my injury to my knee. I also know I mentioned it in another post. But what I havent mentioned is PT. PT is just shory for Physical Therapy. When I tell people im in Physical Therapy they think that my injury is super serius because I have to go to PT now.

The truth is for neary every injury you have to go to PT. It's not just for the serius injurys. I only dislocated my knee. The PT place I go to is awesome though. They give me free candy sometimes. Its also a good place to go. Everyone there is nice.

I would write down the name but being me I forgot. I have a PT apointment. I might remember and mention it in a future post. I just wanted people to understand that my injury is not serius. I can walk, I am planning on going back to practice soon, and I am working on running again.

Grandma's Pie Shop.

My birthday was on may 7th so I am now officaly 13. I actually published my last blogpost on my birthday, however I did not mentuon it in that post. My family dosn't really do really exiting things for birthdays. I went out to lucnh at Grandma's Pie Shop with my grandparents, my mom, dad, and sister.

Personaly I love grandmas pie shop. I love their pie. All of the people there are nice. Best of all, I love their food. I had their chicken parm when I went on my burthday. Before I go further, I'm just going to say if you go to Grandmas Pie Shop they give you a lot of food. It is rediculas. You get two sides. (Soup or salad and andother side like apple sauce, pasta, or french fries.)

I ate all of my food. And I was really full because it was a lot of food. We decide to buy a pie and go back home because we could eat it then. Before we left the bame around with a bowl of whipped cream and a candle. The thing is I hate whipped cream. I can't stand it. I felt bad so my grandma ate the whipped cream for me. I just had a really good time there.

Injured

Recently I was Injured. I dislocated and bruised my patella, I also bruised tibia and fibula. I am currently wearing a brace that keeps my patella in place. (A patella is the same thing as a knee cap.) As sad as it is I got this injury by stepping on a football.

Luckily I am now off of crutches. I was on crutches for about 2 and a half weeks. I'm glad I'm off of them because they hurt. Now I am able to walk. I only have a brace that keeps my patella stabilized.

I have been walking and sometimes my knee will suddenly give out. When that happens I just look weird. I've never actually fallen over but my knee has given out. My knee tends to give out the more I walk. Sadly I still cant run, but that also means I don't have to do gym.  I guess injury's have their ups and downs.

Scuba Diving

My birthday is coming up, it's on may 7th. My dad is a licensed diver. Me and my dad had talked about me getting my Jr. license, and that's what the class is for. The license will allow me to go up to 30 feet deep. After I have my Jr. license for a year I can get the next license which will allow me to go deeper.

My class is five hours long, and there are four of them. The class is in a pool, because everyone there will be a beginner. I'm really exited for the class. My dad was talking to me about scuba diving and I cant believe I will actually be able to scuba dive. On my birthday I will officially be the youngest age able to get the Jr. license.

Sadly the first class I will be taking will begin 21 days after my birthday. Knowing myself I will not be able to contain myself. I am very impatient, and sometimes I get in trouble for that. As I have said before I am really exited for this class and once I take it I will write about my experience. I plan on getting further licenses so I will eventually be able to dive deeper. Sadly I have to be older to get the further licenses, but I can wait with my Jr. license.
