I quit the swim team at 14 because I enjoy sleeping in, not smelling like chlorine when I sweat and generally having a social life but I have been swimming recreationally for a number of years and this is what I’ve picked up while (mainly trying to refrain from) interacting with the unwashed masses at the public pool.
- 1.First impressions matterKit is everything. Obviously wear proper swimwear - bikinis and board shorts do not deserve their own lane.
- 2.Wear a swim capThis is key in signalling to fellow swimmers that you mean business. Bonus points if it has a print from a race or sth. Minus points if it has the logo of the pool.
- 3.The water is -fine-Try to look unbothered by how freaking cold the water is as you initially submerge. You own this pool, the temperature is just right.
I have a private account and used Instagram for probably a year before my friends joined and started liking my pictures. I guess I enjoyed filters? These are some of the pictures I instagrammed for myself, I guess.
- •My first ever.
- •I guess I liked the colors of this older photo and tried it with some filters. Probably that blur-effect instagram loved 4 years ago as well.
- •My first Instagram selfie. Not exactly Tinder material.
