Swimming has been a staple in my life since I was 6 years old. One of my favorite memories was swimming with the Hurley Tiger Sharks, a summer league in Hurley, NY. Swimming was a good way to get away from stress and meet some awesome people. I have been friends with these people since I first began swimming with the Kingston Swim Club.

I love to hang out with my friends from New York. Not many people like their high school friends after experiencing college, but I don’t think these people experienced the times that I have with my friends. My friends and I are a group that do everything together. The best part of our relationship is the family dinners we have, consisting of Dinosaur Chicken Nuggets and Smiley Face French Fries.

Hiking is one of the most exciting outdoor activities that are prevalent in the northeast.Two of my best friends, Courtney and Erin love to hike with me. One time we went for a hike and we could not find the path. Luckily there was another path down the road, but it was not as good.
