This weekend I ventured ten miles north of UCLA to a community pool in Sherman Oaks. We have many swimming pools on campus, but the pool at Sherman Oaks is home to the only public pool with a five meter platform (according to the nice man at the pool).
We had a beautiful weekend here in Los Angeles, so I was happy to get some pool time.
However, I decided I had to dive off the five meet platform since that was the whole reason for going. Needless to say, five meters gets really high once you get up there. It used to be a mundane task for me when I was still diving everyday so I thought it would be no problem. However, to keep things simple, I was just a tad bit nervous when I got up there. But, there was no way I was going to climb down, and I think simply jumping off is much harder then diving. Thankfully, old habits die hard, and after the first dive, I was able to get back up no problem.
On the way home, we stopped at Starbucks for frappuccino happy hour. Very convenient promotion for my midterm studying!
