My Teammates Are The Best Friends I've Ever Had

Thank you from a lane over.

Many times, we find ourselves in difficult parts of our lives and unsure of what our best option is. A lot of times, we face adversity or obstacles or self-doubt, and these things are extremely frustrating when it begins to impact your mental health and everyday life.

It is even more frustrating to see these things begin to play a role in the success of your sports. Oftentimes, the stress of daily events carries over into your training and your outlook on easy things you need to accomplish.

There is one thing that makes these stresses ignorable for 90 or so minutes. It's the people you are surrounded with as you accomplish some of the hardest sets you've done yet.

Over the last couple of years, especially this year, I have been able to enjoy my time at practices so much more because of the people that I'm surrounded with.

Whether it's in my actual lane or a lane or two over, there is always someone pushing you to be better and make jokes while you have the time.

I think this is easily one reason I've begun to enjoy practices so much because there isn't a day where I don't like people in my group or don't feel motivated while swimming next to them. I have found a great friend in almost every person on the team, and I feel like that's rare. A kind of rare that can change a team's success.

In the middle of a really difficult set, I always look over and see at least one of my best friends, working hard and therefore pushing me to work harder.

I'm so blessed by this team and all of the success we've accomplished thus far. I could not imagine being at any other school. Thank you for all you guys do.

I love you, Lady Tigs.

1. Why is Wilson Hall so complicated to navigate? Even as a senior, I still get lost in Wilson. As a freshman, I was warned about the unnecessary complexity of the building, was laughed at by upperclassman for my confused looks on the first day of school and walked and rewalked the whole hall before finding my classroom. #annoying.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

What life would be like if the people were led by Queen B.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

Cynthia Nixon, a.k.a Miranda from Sex and the City, is running for governor of New York. I think that this would be the best decision that has been made in a while solely based off of the fact that almost no one knows New York like the cast of Sex and the City. This got me thinking about who else would be a good candidate to take over the city of dreams. Then I realized that Blair Waldorf, if she were a real person, would be my number one choice for governor. Here are five reasons why Queen B would be an excellent ruler.
