It has been a solid month of training and I am proud to say that I have only missed one session due to health reasons (menses and a swollen eye are party-poopers).
Because I missed a Saturday training, I had only two water trainings so far. Yet, I feel accomplished being able to do all the four rolls (namely, wall roll, paddle roll, hand roll and ball roll).
A wall roll is simply using the edge of the pool to support and push oneself up when capsized. A paddle roll would be using the paddle to sweep oneself up. A hand roll is similar but without the aide of a paddle. Finally, a ball roll is a hand roll but with one arm holding the polo ball.
I feel kind of bad being able to do the rolls while some of my team girls are still struggling with a wall roll. And even though they jokingly tell me that they’re jealous, I’m not sure if they really are after all…
… was to have a fun-filled school life (this academic year) with a lot of canoeing and not so much of club activities. And yesterday’s meeting left me stunned.
I am to chair an event.
Me! The one who knows NOTHING about chairing ANYTHING has to chair a competition? Without my consultation? Turns out it was a surprise. Hoo-ha. I wonder if I can deal with this.
Already the plans have clashed with two trainings and I am not exactly happy. I’m not angry. Seriously. I’m just… frustrated, I guess. I don’t want to let either the team or the club down. But does that mean I have to go down on my own?
God save me.
I really, really don’t want to do another SPSU again…
I have absobuckinlutely no idea what this lecturer is talking about.
He is just way too fast for my slow and tired brain.
God help me for this semester.
We’ve been doing land trainings most of the time since water training was nothing much last Saturday. So everyone was excited when we were finally going to start the polo session this Saturday.
I have been waiting all week for today. And no thanks to my best friend, I am unable to go into the water
Sometimes I hate being a girl.
Edit: Dangit. I woke up this morning with a swollen eye. Thankyouverymuchgodsofswolleneyes.
What I meant by the above was that my mother has finally gotten herself a handphone! Which is a really cool ladies’ design Nokia can’t-remember-the-model phone.
And it’s 972349026 times better than all my phones put together :neutral:
So, you wonder, what’s the special occasion? Nothing much, really. Just that Jun Wei and I happened to receive this text message from our provider, SingTel, giving us the priority queue so we need not join the 1 km public queue.
He was such a sadist, wanting to walk the whole queue to that those we were not in the priority queue could get jealous of us :mrgreen:
By the way, we went to Ministry of Sound at Clarke Quay. We danced, drank and chilled at the Smoove Room where loud hip-hop and R&B could be heard blaring over the speakers. I did not expect to see anyone I know there but surprise, surprise. I saw Pong and Jian Yi.
I had fun and am rather beat. Not to mention, water training at Kallang tomorrow :neutral:
