Ode to old friends found and lost again

From the age of 10 until college the singular thing that defined me was swimming. It was pretty much all I did and all I wanted to do and most of my friends revolved around swimming and most of the choices I made during that time all revolved around swimming. I don't regret it at all. I loved swimming and the friends that I made. Key people that I spent 90% of my time with were Lia, Jim and Bridget. I met them in the 6th or 7th grade the were a 2years older but we were on the same swim team and I think being friends with them made me who I am today.

When it was time to go to high school, I decided to skip going to the school closest to the my house so that I could be on the swim team with those three. I think over the years I have tired to say that it was because of other things, but I went to USDHS for the swim team and nothing else.
