Wow, you sound like you love swimming! That's awesome! It's great to have a sport you love. What's your team like? Do you practice often? Do you have a lot of friends on swim team?
Write soon, iluv2swim
iluv2swim on 10/29/2009 12:21:06 PM
Haha I would never go anywhere to play soccer. I am not talented on my feet.
That' good that you're both mature enough to be friends! I know that me and my ex are not... he's an idiot. Haha that feels good to say.
I will tell him there is a Jess in MA who loves him. He'll be like, "Yeah, and so do the rest of the women in the world." Since he knows that women like him. Which is kind of sickening... but he's still MICHAEL PHELPS.
I hope I do well at the World Cup! I am training ultra hard right now to do well.
I've never heard someone complain about classes being too easy. Mine are so hard... want to switch?
It's good that you're running! You will appreciate that work when swim season rolls around. I bet you'll do GREAT.
I'm swamped with homework and I just got back from a five hour practice, so I am going to go. Everything is normal here, just hanging out, trying to survive conditioning before I hit taper... Yup.
Alright, I am gone.
babewithacause on 9/11/2009 9:45:07 PM
I'm glad your vacation went well. And sorry that you had to go right to school. That does suck. =(
And thank you for the congrats. I am very happy about my placing at Opens, and it was a big shocker.
I did get a very nice tan! Fiji was amazing. Everyone should get a chance to go. It was so amazingly relaxing... I want to go back so badly.
Hey, as long as you have the day off, no complaints there, right? Hahaha
Sorry your summer fling ended. Anything I can do to help you know I'm here for you, chica!
My boyfriend and I are yes, still together. We've been together now for over a year, so I am very happy. He's been really great, and we got to hang out a lot more over the summer which was nice.
I don't start school until next week because Labor Day is so late this year. So I am still soaking up the last moments of summer and starting off a new swim season!
Okay, okay, HUGE news. So I made the National Youth Team (I know, exciting!). So I get to compete at 2 World Cup meets later in the fall, in Berlin in Stockholm. I made it in two events, the 200 and 400 IM. But... there's more major news.
Michael Phelps is our mentor. AH! I know, crazy, crazy! He's traveling with us and Bob Bowman is training us, and... oh my goodness I am so excited. It's like some time in November, so I have to train like crazy. I will be SURE to tell you how THAT goes. AH!!!
So how is everything at school? Anything new going on?
babewithacause on 9/4/2009 7:08:28 PM
LOL that seriously happened? It's alright!!
And im so glad u hear about ur aunt
Ah, ur so lucky u went to Florida for 2 whole weeks and now Arizona?? dang! lol have fun and its okay take ur time!
Oh i've been pretty good i guess, been having some issues with my aunt who i used to be super close with but now i basically hate her. anyways, u?
SportyGal on 8/14/2009 1:19:59 AM
Wow, I haven't heard from you in such a long time. It's good to finally see your post!
I'm very happy that your aunt is doing well. It's awesome that things are looking up.
Florida is always fun, isn't it? I think it's like the greatest place to go if you want to have fun. I don't go there for fun usually tho, just for swim meets. But after the meets comes the fun, and I've been to literally every amusement park in Florida.
I've been doing really well! I swam at both Nationals and the US Open, and I did really well in both. I actually got 2nd in the 400 IM at the US Open and got the silver medal, and that was awesome! I got a bunch of medals too for like 6th or 7th, but the silver was great.
I am in Washington State right now, since that's where the Open was. Junior Nationals are taking place, and even tho I am not swimming in them my whole team is (including my BF) and I wanted to be there to cheer them on.
I think on Sunday I am flying to Fiji for two weeks, and I am so excited. I will be so tan and, of course, I will train there. I'm just enjoying summer, you know?
So how have you been? And how are you prepping for back to school? There are like only three weeks left of summer... eek.
Post back soon!
babewithacause on 8/14/2009 12:27:31 AM
Lol, me too
XxXEmoXxXBabyXxX on 8/13/2009 8:19:17 PM
Awesome profile! Go swimming!
iluv2swim on 6/28/2009 2:49:38 PM
I like your icon
daughtry fan on 6/20/2009 3:36:54 PM
You actually replied pretty quickly! Which is awesome, since I am more on my profile now.
I am ultra sorry to hear about your aunt. I went through that too with my uncle, and it was pretty tough. I'll be here for support from afar. I hope everything works out for you and your family.
On a brighter note... yes, I did meet Michael Phelps. I've met him a couple of times before, but this is the most time I've spent with him. He was up in Colorado Springs at the altitude training center, and I was there with my team for a couple of weeks too, so we trained in the same place. It was phenomenal. You just walked around and you're like, "whoa. Michael Phelps!"
Funny story, we were wearing the same suit pattern. They have those printed Speedo training suits, and they make them for guys and girls, and we were wearing the same one, and he was like, "Ha, that's funny." It made my life.
Sorry to hear about your finals. I hope you have a better teacher next year, and I hope you ace them!
My finals went pretty well. I aced my Physics and math ones, and then all my other ones were in the B range, so I was really happy.
My summer is going really well! I've been training like crazy, getting ready for Nationals and the U.S. Open. I cannot believe Nationals are in three weeks! Time flies by.
Other than that, my parents have decided to go on a two week vacation to Fiji in August, so that should be amazing. I will be training there of course, but also getting my tan on.
So what are you doing this summer? Anything fun?
Write back soon!
babewithacause on 6/16/2009 11:26:36 PM
omg dont worry about it for one second!
im sooo sorry to hear that, i hope everything gets better
lol same! and n2m just enjoying summer (shocking) but spending waaay too much money already haha
how about u?
SportyGal on 6/15/2009 9:16:56 PM
Now it's my turn to apologize for being gone. My team was traveling for training in California, and then we did altitude training in Colorado (with Michael Phelps! Ah!), and now we are in North Cali for yet another Grand Prix meet. So it's been hectic, especially now before Nationals.
I did well at the Charlotte UltraSwim. I didn't go any best times, but it was a really good measure of where I am and where I want to be for Nationals.
So we really do need to catch up! That's awesome that you're training for a triathalon! I've always wanted to do one, but have never gotten the chance to really do it.
So how is everything going? How is summer? You enjoying break? Or are you still in school? How were finals?
so many questions!
babewithacause on 6/14/2009 6:28:35 PM
how has your life been going????
icecreamfriday103 on 5/28/2009 4:13:40 PM

SportyGal on 5/28/2009 4:00:49 PM

icecreamfriday103 on 5/26/2009 12:27:57 PM
Man, you've been gone a while, eh? Been worried bout ya! LOL
I just got back from North Carolina from the Charlotte UltraSwim, which was a lot of fun. I swam some good times, and got to see some famous swimmers, so it was a good time!
I don't really know where we left off... It's really been some time!
I have just been swimming, working hard, hanging out with friends, being with my BF, you know, the usual...
This summer I actually have more meets, like World Champ Trials and stuff, so it should be fun.
How is your swimming going?
Write back soon!

SportyGal on 2/19/2009 11:10:32 PM
Heyy! You asked how I got the name shattered_lollipop so here is the story: My friends and I went shopping and we went to a candy store where I bought a lollipop. We went back to the hotel (where my friend was having a party) and later that night we walked around the hotel. Well I was licking/eating my lollipop. We were walking through this door (those metal ones) when my friend in front of me let go of it before I had a chance to push it open so I could walk through. As I reached out to keep the door open, the door hit my lollipop shattering it into thousands of tiny pieces. It was so funny because we all went completely silent. It was so weird! So ya, that's where I get shattered lollipop from! Oh and my friends nicknamed me Lolli! (I was so happy/shocked when the song Lolli Lolli came out!)
Peace.Around the world.<3.
*~*Shattered_Lollipop*^~** on 2/19/2009 7:21:03 PM
hey! i like your icon... i think swimming is a really cool sport! i dance... but i wish i could do swimming too. i just like goofing around in the lake/ocean/pool only i don't really like pools... hehehe. i watched M.P. in the olympics this summer. he is ah-mazing!!
ttlytapdancer5678 on 2/19/2009 5:16:50 PM
The LZR is not a suit I wear to just normal, dual meets or stuff like that. I wear them to big shot events, like ones that it took me FOREVER to qualify for. Plus, it's weird when you first wear it because it tries to lift you up, so it's not something I like wearing unless necessary. Plus, it takes so long to put on.
You shaved off 11 seconds on your 100 free? Wow! What do you go now? I only shaved that much on my 1000 free and 1650 free, but those are easy events to lose time on because there's so much of them!
And it's totally as good as what I achieved! Dropping 11 seconds on a 100 is fantastic!
My season goes through the whole year with two weeks in March and three weeks in August off, but not really because they send us workouts we should do!
P.S.: so what kinds of suits do you have to wear for swim meets? Speedo's, TYR's, etc.?
babewithacause on 2/19/2009 11:08:54 AM
No prob about the mixed up message, we all mix-it-up sometimes.
FallenAngel12 on 2/18/2009 10:26:52 PM
Hey Sweetie! (again)
I just read your comment. Lol. And I agree and disagree with you. See, I am Catholic too. My article was not disgraceful talk, but rather insight. Lol. I just pictured the worst possible thing, to discourage other people from falling into that trap. I was just interested in the idea. Hell, it's a lot more material than Heaven in my thoughts. It's something closer, but farther away. We can get trapped in it so easily. I want to go to heaven as well. I want to change the world, help the world. I want to do what I am supposed to do. I am very connected with God and my religion. Don't doubt that. Lol.
writerchickwithfeelings on 2/18/2009 10:15:32 PM
BTE: Business Technology Essentials. It's a boring, required class that lets me use the computer.
Haha. Thank you. The account thing is new. I'm not sure if I auotmatically have one or not. I should look into it. Lol.
writerchickwithfeelings on 2/18/2009 10:06:24 PM
cool i so will!
my life ok but my friend started this club and i joined but then she left my other two friends out and she now decided that she hates them for no reason! and i have no idea who's side to take!
kitkat23 on 2/18/2009 8:48:18 PM
Hey! Luv ur profile! Thanks 4 the comment! Michael Phelps is awesome! One of my cousin's friend's knows him. IDK him though. Luv swimming 2! Thanks,
lilypadgirl on 2/18/2009 7:00:42 PM
Hey girl you sound really cool and I'm a gemini too.
FallenAngel12 on 2/18/2009 6:28:18 PM
I missed you! Lol. For a while I just wondered what happened, but I've been busy, so I just kinda forgot. Lol.
Nothing much is up with me. I'm in my BTE class, bored as heck, practicing typing reports. I already know how to do this, so the purpose is foiled. Lol. I mean, I can type super fast too, so I'm like, getting done now. Lol.
What else..? OH! My article on teenink.com/raw has made number one, and going steady for quite a few days now... I need to vote on it today. It's called H*ll. YOu can read it if you want and have the time.
What's up with you?
writerchickwithfeelings on 2/18/2009 3:30:02 PM
no i haven't read maximum ride books but i
have heard of them i will probably get them soon!
kitkat23 on 2/18/2009 3:23:12 PM
I am really happy about my times now. I am getting faster and faster, and now that we are tapering I can feel the positive effect of the whole season in my swimming.
I was so shocked when I went under 2:00, and so was everyone on deck. It was phenomenal.
I have actually swam in the LZR once before, at Olympic Trials, but now I got a new one for World Champs Trials and an FS Pro for Jr. Nationals. The LZR is amazing! It is the absolute coolest thing ever.
Sorry you didn't make States. You will eventually, since you work so hard.
Nationals and stuff aren't for a while, but thanks.
You have break until May? I'm not done until the middle of March, then I have two weeks, then it's right back! It's good that you're staying in shape. That's really important even if it's just swimming laps at Open swim.
Raunchy stuff to bunnies? Creepy... LOL
My V-Day was good. My BF took me out for the day, which was really nice. He didn't give me anything, but he paid for breakfast after morning practice so it was nice.
babewithacause on 2/18/2009 2:32:43 PM
OMG my brother's fiancee wants 2 be a neurosurgeon too! Cool. That is really neat! O_O
lilypadgirl on 2/17/2009 7:09:24 PM
thx so much for the advice!
you seem really nice! have you read the twilight series? if you haven't they are really good!
talk to ya later
kitkat23 on 2/17/2009 3:39:02 PM
I am so sorry I haven't been on for, what, three or four weeks? I have just been super super super super SUPER busy! I have been swimming nonstop, but it's had fantastic results.
First off, I broke five minutes in the 500 free! I went a 4:58.79 at a meet last week! Yay! My coaches were so excited, and I was too! I am not a distance swimmer, so I was ultra excited.
Second, I broke 2:00 in my 200 fly! Woo-hoo!
I just kept on dropping time a lot, and I swam at a lot of meets. I got two new suits, a LZR and and FS Pro, both full body suits.
I made US Open cuts, Junior National cuts I hadn't made before, and a couple World Champs Trials Cuts!
I saw that you left a comment that your season just wrapped up. Are you still swimming, tho, or taking a break?
And how was your Valentine's Day?
I'll try to answer quicker than last time (so it won't take me a month this time...)
babewithacause on 2/15/2009 2:49:24 PM

SportyGal on 2/5/2009 7:51:05 AM
Sorry I haven't been on in forEVER! I've been pretty busy with swim and stuff. But, season just ended up here and I didn't make states...BUMMER! and summer sesh doesn't start back up in May, so until then... I'm back =) But besides that, my algebra teacher is an...evil...person and gives us like 90 problems a night for homework, so if I don't answer your posts quick, Sorry!
Haha, so...Thats about it =)
Oh, and I still love Michael Phelps even after his "wrong doings" (I don't think I can say it word for word on this site) Just thought I'd clear the air of that =) Not saying that what he did was wrong but...You know what? Talk to me about if you wish, it's a current article...I think I'll take it in for my health class assignemnt. Lol.
So I haven't been ignoring you, just been busy. So peace and stuff to all of you.
Thanks for your comments and "love" <3
