    I was 17, dating this girl.

    We, her sister, and her sister's then boyfriend and another guy went to the lake. We were all jumping off this rock into the water, and finally I was convinced to do it, although I don't know how to swim. Somehow, my mind was saying, how hard could it be? I bet I can do it. Don...
