    I want to learn to swim. I've always been scared of drowning and having my head completely under water. I hope someday, to learn how to swim and to face my fears. It just is something that seems so much fun, and it's good exercise, I know. I love being in a pool, but always...

    Like a Pro, Or Like An Olympic Swimmer

    I can only swim enough to get by. Swimming is 1 of my favorite hobbies, & I wish I was a professional swimmer. Is it too late to learn how to swim professionally @ age 26? I turn 26 in 3 weeks.
