I haven’t been writing a lot lately because I have been extremely busy with the swimming season. Just last week was the final meet for me because the highest meet I could qualify for is regionals. Sadly, this is going to be the last post I will ever write on this blog. I would to thank all my readers from my school and around the world such as Mr. C, Miss Lipsky, and so many more. Even though I only had this blog for two years, it feels like so long ago when I wrote my first post. But now I am moving on. Farewell, Leeza’s Ice Berg!
Uuugggg…. My Thursday practice was soooo painful. My coach wanted me to finish this super long set. It was something like 16 x 200 IM and in the middle, my stomach started killing me with pain. My coach didn’t believe me and I had finish the whole set before I could go to the bathroom. By the time I finished, I felt awful. I sprinted out of the pool and the the bathroom where I threw up. I had an hour left but I finished practice, in pain. Uuuggg…..
Ahhh, the break is here but swimming never stops. No school for a week is something I can really live with. I am not writing on my blog so often because I have no time whatsoever. Please understand I am not able to write back as often as I would like. Thanks!
I am currently writing this from a secret place which is best I not say because I LIVE THERE. I moved from Shanghai, China to this place and I miss every last one of you guys back in Shanghai. I feel so torn apart and lonely. Moving to a new place in the middle of the year is sooo hard, but it is not the first time. It’s not the same here, and I can’t be who I really am. Instead I’m quiet, shy, and a follower looking for a best friend, not just someone to walk behind. On the up side, I joined this awesome swim team with really cool people who don’t go to my school sadly but those 2 hours are 2 hours I look forward to in the day (sometimes).
Aaahhhh… Finally winter break is here and I am taking in every last second and savoring it. I’m on the move to the other side of the planet which means packing, sorting, tossing, and saying A LOT of good- byes. I still can’t have the feeling that I’m not going to see all of you probably ever again sink in. Christmas is among us and so is the Christmas spirit so I’m filled with joy. Sleeping in and having at least some spare time is what I’ve been waiting for for so long. Merry Christmas Planet Earth! And have a Happy New Year!
I don’t really know how to say this but…. Goodbye, everyone!! I’m going to miss each and everyone of you!! Remember to check back on my blog because I’ll be writing from Cali! Merry Christmas!
AAAHH! This is the last week I will ever attend school in SAS! I can’t believe how fast 2 and 1/2 years can go by… I guess I have already got used to that feeling… unfortunatly. But the worst part is that I can’t come back. :’( I feel like broken glass, shards put together over and over again and some missing forever. When I’m gone, I am going to miss each and every one of my friends that I have ever had here but I don’t think my heart can hold so many goodbyes. But when I leave I will remember one thing I have remembered since I had to move, “Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it’s happened.” – Dr. Seuss
NOOOOOOOOOOO! I’m moving away from so many people!! I feel so saddd… I’m going to miss you guys so much when I move I don’t know what to do about it… Moving is so hard and I had to do it 6 times already! I feel so ripped apart like a scrap piece of paper floating away in the wind. I just wish I had a photo frame to fit every single last person I have to leave behind… I wish I could bring you all with me. I wish I didn’t have to move. I wish.
I finish all this online stuff so now I have free time. This week did not start off so well… sCiEnCe tEsT. Today I had a math and French quiz. On Thursday I have a French test and Humanities is giving me mercy…. Oh well… la di da di daaa… Nothing to write about. This is a way to conclude a post.
SMART goals aren’t exactly my “thing” because saying I want to save the world is not realistic so it’s not SMART. Ok, here it goes.
I would like to get a 32 second 50 free by January 8th (start of next quarter). Buuuuuut, I am moving to the states over break so it won’t really matter but I will still try to achieve. To do this I will swim everyday possible and time myself at the end of the week. I will try not to slack off or not go to practice for my own selfish reasons. Things that could get in my way are parties, friends, trips, injuries, and plain laziness. I wil ACHIEVE!
