So seen as I’m home ill, I thought this would be a good time to write a bit about myself so you guys can get to know me.
As you know, I’m a 15 year old student who’s new to this whole bloggin’ craze. I’ve got to admit, blogging has taken to me (and any tips would be great!). My mum thought it would be a good idea for me to start this blog, and she was right ( as she is most of the time). We’ve set up this new “tradition” in my family where every Saturday, I cook dinner and dessert and I love it cause it let’s me discover loads of new meals that I’d of never cooked otherwise! For me, the best part about cooking is that you can always eat what you made after.. haha!
Other than cooking, swimming is a big part of my life. I started because my two older sisters were swimming and , being the youngest, I basically wanted to do whatever they did. Since the age of 5, the water is like a part of me. I don’t really know how to explain, it just is. The swimming pool is the one place I know I can always be myself. You don’t have the pressure of being like everybody else like you do at school. Everybody is there for the same reason, and that reason is simple: we love to swim. Then over the years, with my dad’s huge support, I started getting good at it. More races, mores trainings.. Then the races started getting more and more important, and I got into the Belgium Championships. And that’s when I realized, that I had finally found the one thing I was good at. The training all year, the getting up early, the stress, the fatigue, it’s all worth it. Cause it’s also thanks to swimming that I met some of the most amazing people and friends I’ll cherish all my life.
Wow, I hadn’t realized I’d babbled on for quite so long, sorry about that! I never knew it would be quite so easy to speak to total strangers.. If you’ve taken the time to read all this, thank you. You’ve made my day that hadn’t started so well, much better.
See you next Saturday!
