Butterfly stroke

Hi people! Today I’m going to be posting about the facts about why I don’t like butterfly and a little more about it. First of all butterfly looks like this: Image result for butterfly stroke

It is my least favorite stroke because on the 6th step, you have to immediately put your head down even though your hands are not even up yet.  I also do not like it because when I kick, my hands do not go up enough so that affects me from going farther so I basically stay in one place. also when I kick, the kicks I do are not strong so that also affects me from going farther. Even though it is not as worse as my backstroke is, it is still really bad.

Passion Post: Swim

Hi peeps! Today I’m going to be posting about swim. Swimming is one of my passions simply because I’ve been doing it for 5 years. For swim team though, I have only been doing it for 2 years. Now I am in the Badgers Swim Club and the requirements that they have are quite hard.

I normally go 3 times a week to practice, but if there is a meet, I go four times. I just had my second meet on Saturday, but I don’t know what place I am in. The last time I had a meet, I was in 63rd place, 42nd place, and 63rd place again. the strokes that I did were:  100 freestyle (63rd), 50 backstroke (63rd), and 50 breaststroke (42nd).  I wasn’t really happy about that. I thought that I would do better than I actually did.

If I were to line the strokes in the order I liked them, it would probably be like this: breaststroke, freestyle, butterfly, and finally backstroke. I absolutely hate backstroke because I have never been good at it. I am also not really good at butterfly because I always can’t get my hips up so I can go faster. I am pretty good at freestyle , but if I use all my energy at once, I can’t do more than 5 laps before slowing down. Breaststroke is my favorite stroke because I can relax when I’m doing it. Sometimes I can’t relax because either I’m in a meet or my coach tells us to go sprint breaststroke.  What is your favorite stroke if you do swimming?

Christmas

It is almost Christmas and I am super excited about that. For Christmas I’m going to some place in South Africa because my grandpa’s friend invited us to go there. I think it be hot, but I really have no clue. If anyone has been to South Africa before please comment down below and share your experiences. It would be cool to see what you think about Africa and know all your experiences. If anyone’s going somewhere, I would really like to know and maybe tell you about it if I’ve been there before.  I found on the web a picture of South Africa so you peeps can tell me if you have been there or not:

Also for Christmas, I made a wish list and wished for a bunch of things, but I don’t remember what those are. What did you wish for? for Christmas it is normally hanging out with your family and having a good Christmas. I love doing things with my family especially traveling with them to the places I have never been to before. what I’m really worried about is whether or not there will be any disgusting bugs or critters crawling around.  🙁

Roller Coaster Life Blurb

Here’s a blurb on another of my writing pieces. ENJOY! 🙂

“Bring!” the lunch bell rang. I was finally saved. As we walked outside of the classroom, All of the 4th graders ran like the wind to get their lunches like it was some kind of “who ever gets to the lunchroom first wins” competition. It was the first day of school and we were told to bring our lunches instead of getting the provided lunches that we had to pay before school started. I gathered up my things and followed them inside a noisy filled room. We were eating lunch with the second graders, I figured. When I looked around for a seat (since nobody really wants a new kid to sit at their table) I spotted my sister, Sarina, sitting among a handful of girls. They looked like they were having so much fun. I should’ve known that Sarina was a better friend maker than I was. She had made friends before in camp like in 5 min. I felt tears come to my eyes, but blinked them back not wanting them to roll down my cheeks, after all I didn’t want to be embarrassed. My sister was amazing and I was not. “ Sad, just plain boring sad.” I thought to myself thinking about how good it would be surrounded by friends laughing and hanging out with you.                                                                                                                                    Click here to read more! 🙂
