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.

    First impressions matter
    Kit is everything. Obviously wear proper swimwear - bikinis and board shorts do not deserve their own lane.
  2. 2.
    Wear a swim cap
    This 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. 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.
  1. My first ever.
  2. 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.
  3. My first Instagram selfie. Not exactly Tinder material.
