Sunday, September 12, 2010's harder than it looks

Somewhat inspired by a good friend...
I have decided to start doing some things in my
life that I've kind of always wanted to do,
but just never really got around to doing for whatever reason...
(a bucket list--so to speak)
up first on the list:
Taking DIVING lessons!
(springboard diving that is...not scuba-I'd rather die)
Anywho...I'm taking a diving class @ Cypress College
and my coach is non other than Ashley's old diving coach
(who is awesome)...
how cool is that?

(this may or may not be an Olympic Gold Medalist and not me)

ps...little bro Brendan is also taking the class
and is already been picked to be on the school's div team!
yay Brendan!! the beginning of this crazy idea of mine
I made a list of all the dives I wanted to accomplish.
Not gonna lie...that list is somewhat modified,
and by modified I mean all the hard dives taken off,
due to my recent "smack" on the high dive
(which left welts and bruises on my thigh for a week).
But don't worry...I'm no wuss...
these are the dives I still plan, aka: hope, to accomplish before the class is over:

-front full twist
-back one and a half (on 1 meter)
-back dive pike
-reverse dive
-front one and a half (on 3 meter)
-front two and a half (on 3 meter)
-inward one and a half

and some that I've luckily already accomplished:

-front one and a half (1 meter)
-inward dive
-front dive tuck/pike
-dive off 5 meter

(stay tuned for some more things on the "bucket list")
