Dear Diary: I was going to swim team tryouts, and I was feeling scared but I wanted to make the team so I had to go. I got to the tryout a little early so I was able to watch the previous tryout and I felt a little better because I knew all the strokes the instructor asked them to do. When it was my turn I got in the water and I had a partner who I did not know, but I passed him in every turn even though he started 30 seconds before me. I was starting to feel more confident. When I was done I felt soooooo happy and they told me that I was great and made the team!!! Now I know that I should not be scared to try new things even if I’ve never done it before.
