A Slice of Life | Polar Plunge

Last weekend, I thought for some reason it wouldn’t be freezing to jump into the pacific without a wetsuit, in California, in the middle of winter. I was wrong. It was cold. But, it was totally worth it! After the initial shock of the frigid waters (and after my extremities went numb…) I sort of got used to the temperature and really enjoyed feeling free to swim around without any neoprene restricting my movements! I exited the ocean feeling fresh, renewed, and ready to face any challenges that come my way this year.

A Slice of Life | SWELLebration

A wise young woman named Dorothy once said, “There’s no place like home.” Even though she was fictional, the Wizard of Oz is an AWESOME musical… and her words ring so very true. As the holidays approach, for college students, that means finals, finals, finals… and not much else. Even though the surf was firing, my head was buried in books all last week, and I could only look out the window and sigh, wishing I were in the waves. Fortunately, the stress came to an end, and the embrace of my home, the Pacific Ocean, greeted me in SWELLabration.
