yeah the weekend was okay. busy but kind of boring. saturday: practice 7-9, 2 hour nap, then NAAC meet against souderton. YESS we beat them it was amazing. our B relay beat their A relay in the unlimited 200 free relay and we won the meet from that! it was soo exciting-we've NEVER everr beaten souderton before so it was pretty cool. then mike was gonna take all the 15&overs out for pizza but i couldn't go bc i had to bbsit at 6 and it was like 5:30 then. so yeah i babysat sat night and got some much needed $$. sunday was my first day to sleep in in soooo long. yeah even though i woke up at like 9am, that's quite late for me! then watched the eagles stomp all over the vikings yesss. today we had practice 9-11, yes 3 long hours of pain and me getting even more sick than i already am. then did my history project and babysat 2-6. yess more much needed $$. yay i also ordered birk clogs yesterday and they were $60 and brand new! yes i love outlets... especially when i can do it online =D they were shipped today so hopefully they will be here asap.

yeah so today rubin tells us we have MORNING practice tomorrow, wendesday, and thursday. yes, that is 3 days in a row. at least no pm practice tomorrow b/c he has a meeting. we also have to share with the boys 2/3 days which means we have to jam 40 girls into three lanes... yes it's quite an impossible and not fun task. 2 meets this week: the mount on wed at 3:30, and methacton on friday at 5:00pm-which means BE THERE to cheer us on!! they're both home so be at both of them actually. yeah okay im out!

wow incredibly busy weekend. saturday morning, get up at 6:30am to go to practice-WHAT FUN. came home, slept, went to UD for NAAC meet. we got there at 2 and diving was STILL going on. quite boring. but i saw caitie!! the meet didn't start until 3, and i had to leave at 4 so all i got to swim was breast in the medley-thank god for emily she switched w/ me so i didn't have to do back. aah i would have died. mike must be on crack bc he keeps putting me in 100 back!! i SUCK-i'm reallly just plain bad at it. i would rather do 200 IM or fly. seriously, i would. anywayyy, then babysat til almost midnight. ughh... at least its a lot of $$. then skiied all day today. so basically, the weekend was busy, but not too fun. skiing was lame today-no big trails open and sean wasn't there so i was kind of bored. no parties this weekend, no sleep this weekend, NOTHING this weekend. aah kill me now-next weekend is going to be almost the exactt same... aah. maybe i'll finally see lizzie! okay laterr

wow haven't updated in a whole week! well i did on wednesday but then i got logged off so it all got erased. it was about wednesdays amazing practice. me and irene got in a huge fight and then everyone got on my side and ashley goes "IRENE- WHY DONT YOU GO STICK YOUR HEAD IN THE TOILET?" i thought it was hilarious--but you def. had to be there. then thursdays meet... good meet, but we lost. we can still be the champs if methacton beats them and we beat methacton. but methacton sucks this year so us and UD will probably beat them. oh well. then this morning we had practice-no afternoon. irene shared some unesscesary info w/ me and parkin... aah o god. oh and also we now have practice sunday... but im not going! family is coming up. oh well what a shame...... NOT

tomorrow=field trip! but of course i'll be there for the bio test, and i won't be there for the TKMB test where we go to lunch, discuss it, and come back and change all our answers. poop. i gotta take that one after school tomorrow. yeah so we are going to the rock gym for lifeguarding. i see no point in it, but it gets me out of school so i'm really not complaining. it should be fun. okay well i gotta shower! im out

i went back to school on wed. still didn't feel good. same thursday. thursday went to practice, rubin still wasn't there, and i still didn't feel great so me and maryland just like stood in the shallowend and probably swam like a 400 at the very most. yeah it was a good practice. today we had dryland til 3:30. and the UD meet got rescheduled to wednesday at 3:30. BE THERE! the boys lost by like... 2 :[ boo... but they still did great! i was gonna go to the movies tonight w/ kim but neither of us have rides so who knows what im doing?

i feel like i have more to write but i can't think of anything...

ohh yeah so the speech i had to memorize... i didn't do it last night and i finally did it today in 1st n 2nd block n at lunch and i didn't even have to go. i was the only one! ha yeah im soo lucky. and then right after that i saw someone with someone else :'[ and yeah that took away all the happiness i had.

99% over him :/

yeah and then today in lifeguarding i was swimming and some girl's head went right into my lip and omg it was so hard i thought like she knocked my teeth out but my braces went into my lip and my bottom lip has cuts all over the inside and it's all swollen. it still reallly hurts.

tomorrow is the best buddies party, i'm going with lauren. it should be fun. it's the first one im going to this year. always a joy. =D

"People dont swim because its fun. Ask any swimmer, most of them hate it, but they couldnt imagine their life with out it. Its part of them, its something they live for. They live for the 5 a.m practices, pasta partys, cheers, long bus rides, invitationals, countless swim caps, chlorine, and coaches you hate but appreciate later. They live for the way it feels when you beat the person next to you by a tenth of a second and you know those 2 extra laps you did in practice were worth it. You live for the way you jump every time you hear a buzzer, or the way you scream whenever you hear the gun on the 500 even though you hear it every time. You live for the way you celebrate when you get to do a set with fins. You live for the way you become a family with your team, and noone understands what happens within that pool or locker room but you. You live for the countless songs you sing in your head when your swimming those laps. You live for the people who scream at you while your swimming even though all you hear is BLAH BLAH BLAH. You live for the competition, you live for the friends, you live for the practice, you live for the pain, its a part of you. Your a swimmer."
