The title says it all: I, Dana, a full-grown adult, have signed up for beginner swimming lessons.
I never had any real lessons growing up, and have always had some sort of a fear of being underwater, and diving or even just jumping into it. It’s almost a phobia for me, but I don’t think it’s anything I’m not able to overcome, with proper guidance.
I’ve signed up for four 45-minute private lessons at ACAC. One each week up until the trip to Jamaica. I’m excited about kicking my fear to the curb and enjoying swimming, snorkeling, and other fun things on vacation without the stress.
One slight issue: class starts this Thursday, I had no suitable suit to wear, and shopping time is limited. (For swim classes, I think it would behoove me to wear a one-piece, which I didn’t have.) In a pinch, I ventured over to Target, where I get pretty much all my swimsuits anyway. Much to my dismay, they had a whopping total of THREE one-piece suits to choose from. One was teal – my favorite color! – but in an unsightly paisley. The other wasn’t flattering and wasn’t in my size anyway. This left me one choice, which I’m not too unhappy about:
I picked up the cute terry-cloth cover-up too, but in white. I think the suit was actually a good, basic buy. A black one-piece is a classic item I believe all women should own. It’s flattering, and never goes out of the style. This one has a fun print, which makes it a bit more interesting, but nothing too wild or trendy. I can see myself wearing this for many seasons.
