+I am deathly afraid of sharks. No, seriously. I'm not kidding. Like, I will plant my happy butt on the beach and not go in the water. (This is super not fun when you live in Hawaii for 4 years....) Or, if I do go in the water, I am constantly looking around knowing I am about to get yanked underwater by Jaws. I have had this fear since I was a kid, and used to be afraid to get into swimming pools alone, for fear of sharks. YES. Swimming pools. I have since rationalized the swimming pool thing, but the ocean is a huge deal for me. I still go, but it's difficult to hold back the panic. I think it's because I am obsessed with sharks... and the ocean. I watch Shark Week every year, watch every shark scary movie/documentary, and read about them all the time. I even wanted to be a Marine Biologist for a long time. Until I realized that having panic attacks in the ocean would not help my career.
+ That being said.... I have gone shark cage diving. Twice. Yup. It's true. And yes, there were sharks. Lots of white-tip sharks. And a barracuda. Haha. Weird fact? This girl was totally not scared. It was the most fun, ever. I won't go in 3 ft deep water at the beach with no sharks in sight without panicking, but I'll get in a cage in 100 ft of open water surrounded by sharks, and have a blast. I'm crazy. I know.
I really wish I had a picture with a shark, but alas, I don't. This is me in the cage.
Hi there, fella.
I named this guy Jake.
Leaving the cage. I had soooo much fun.
+ I love dressing up like it's the 80's. No seriously. I love it. Bright colors, side ponytail, leg warmers, sequins? Heaven. We volunteered at Relay for Life in Hawaii one year, and the theme was 80's. I was like I don't even care what it's for. I'm there if I can dress up. I then made all my friends go, and took them shopping. They were so embarrassed at first, but I wasn't, I figure people aren't staring because I'm a freak, they're just jealous. :)
My friend told me later it looked like a rainbow puked on us. Heck yes!
I love these girls. :)
Woo hoo. Ready to raise some money for charity!
The whole group.
This was a completely different time.. Just cuz I was feeling like it.
Well, there is this week's TTT! Have a great day!
