Scaredy-fish, yup thats me!

Hello my friends!

I feel like I haven't really had much to say or really the time to say it. With scuba classes, packing, and all the normal stuff that I have going on, I think that my brain has shut off. I am so glad that life will be back to normal next week. I don't function well when I get little (for me) sleep. So, I apologize for that lack of posts. I am hoping to have more to post soon! :)

I leave for my scuba certification dive weekend today. I am excited because I get off work early (hooray!), but I am also apprehensive. Its been all fun and games for me with this dive class. I love swimming pools so the water hasn't been an issue. :) Now we are going in the open water. Still relatively safe, I know, because its far enough in from the ocean, but still...the ocean totally freaks me out.

Also, there is a chance that I won't be able to get certified this weekend. I've already passed the written exam (gotta love multiple choice!), but my ears have decided to go on strike. With diving if you have a cold or anything like that you can't dive. You can injure yourself. Well, Monday my ears went crazy and I was super dizzy (literally fell over at work...have to say I was cracking up!). I am doing better today, but still don't feel all the way normal. A little dizzy still, but I am hoping that will be gone by tomorrow...crossing my fingers! :) I think its weird that I want to dive and get certified and not want to all at the same time. I will keep you posted on my diving status. Here's hoping that I can dive and get certified so that I have something to show for all of my "hard" work! :)


Your excited and VERY apprehensive friend,

Natalie
