You may or may not know this already, but i’m a swimmer. It’s high school season right now and we have our district meet this friday/saturday. (prelims are friday, finals are saturday.) And I’M SO NERVOUS. My coach put me on one of our relays that is supposed to qualify for state at this meet… and we are no where near the time. So, we have to allocate it. (get 1st, 2nd, or 3rd.) right now, we are seated to get 3rd. We are a good 6 seconds behind 1st, 2 seconds behind 2nd (which is actually a really big difference for a 200 Freestyle relay.) But we are only 3 HUNDREDTHS of a second in front of 4th. THAT’S SO FREAKING CLOSE ITS NOT EVEN FUNNY!! and i’ve been having these crazy dreams that i mess it up for everyone and we lose the meet and dont go to state… oh, and did i mention this is the only way i will get to go to state this year? I love swimming so much, and going to state as a sophomore would be amazing. but why does it have to be so stressful?!
