Deep Fear

Thursday lived up to it's general expectations. It was ok. But tomorrow's Friday which is my favourite day, not just because it's the last day of the week and pretty much the weekend but because I also love the classes that we have on Fridays.

I actually went to the library and borrowed some books for one of our projects. Impressed? haha. It's only nearly the end of the third week...

Also conquered a bit of a fear today. I went deep water running. I have a bit of a fear of deep water. I have had three near drowning experiences, only one of them actually in a pool all before I was the age of ten. I don't think I've ever been out of my depth before except when clambering onto the edge (except for those three times and I actually think only two of them I wouldn't have been able to stand in the water). But I did it. It was in the diving pool. Way out of my depth and I didn't drown. So what if I was actually wearing a floaty!

So I do feel accomplished for the day. Fear conquered. And I did come quite close to taking off my floaty... maybe next time.

But now, unfortunately, it's time to get back to that homework that kept me up all night last Thursday. Lucky it's homework I like doing! So I'm set for a late one! Time to get out some chocolate and lemon sorbet I think.

Here's another quote for you:

“Fear of failure must never be a reason not to try something.”

- Frederick Smith

Hope you're in bed long before me!
