    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...

    Why I Haven't Touched It Since

    When I was little I used to love to go swimming in the waves. I'd fearlessly tread out as far as my mom would let me and Bon up and down with the waves. I should have been more careful. But really so should my parents. I had no way of knowing what a rip tide was, and no one told...
