OK, so I know, I've kinda been M.I.A for the last month and I'm reeeaaally sorry you guys :(
I had these really big end of term exams that i could not fail, so I had to lock myself far away from my laptop and actually study. I know, I still shiver thinking of it. On top of that, I had a gazillion final art projects to give in, none of which I'm particularly happy with it, but yeah. I'm working on that.
I've also made some pretty big changes in my life, the most important one probably being my quitting sciences. I was unhappy with it, I didn't like it and I had no intention whatsoever in pursuing a career in that field, so I figured it was time I stopped being such a wimp and finally went after what I wanted. So yeah, full time art = awesomest/stupidest thing I've probably done so far.
Also, it's been a bit more than a week since I've given in all my works, including extra credits, so I've been catching up on the sleep I missed the last couple of months and battling this nasty cold , courtesy of none existent dodo schedule. Thanks.
BUT SUMMER IN MONTREAL! It's all sunny and warm, and no rain!!!! I looveeeee it. This summer, I'm getting fucking tan, OK? You guys can't let me get all cooped up inside again, I swear, I was the whitest latina you'd ever seen.
Oh! Right. All of this was pretty much just a heads up to warn you guys that I might be flooding your inbox with my stupid comments, but I have tons of lovely posts & fandoms to catch up too, so deal with it.
OH YEAH, I'M BACK!
I'm blaming the lovely overtsock for this! Thanks to her, I discovered these awesome Merlin merchs and really, can you blame me for not resisting the lovely mental image of Arthur wearing one? You so know Merlin would put his claim on him g
od knows I would.

The left foot makes a clockwise motion while the right leg makes a counterclockwise motion towards the axis of the body. The legs should never meet because when one foot is on the inside of the motion, the other should be on the outside. The arms are not involved directly in this kick.
Basically, you do the chair in the water while doing clockwise and counterclockwise motions with your feet. It's suppose to keep you a float... Refer to fact #2. Yeah, no.
I also have this inability to to swim on the surface of water. Don't ask me why, it involves a sad story about a young girl watching way too many dog movies and refusing to swim properly in her swimming classes, which she quit anyway. Anyway, the point is that I somehow made it my personal goal to be able to swim the entire length back and forth without having to stop to regain footing or air 'cause I choked on water.
That class, I managed to do half. My teacher was telling me I had done an excellent job (I think I must have drowned in the pool and died. A gym teacher telling me I did a good job? Yup, I drowned.) and giving me thumbs up and everything! For a moment, I felt on top of the world. I ruled the pool- no! I ruled the oceans! I was the best and nothing could stop me!
And then I had to do eggbeater kicks again.
