My son name is Vince S., He has been competing in the Metro swim League a little over a year now. The Metro Swim League is a Swim Meet tournament all New York City after-school Clubhouses’ Swim teams participate in. The Swim Meets are once, twice or even three times a month. Vince has been a member of the Boys Club of New York clubhouse since 2011.
Fall of 2015, Vince was given a great opportunity to join the Gerry Clubhouse Tiburones swimming team. As a beginner, Vince was not comfortable swimming in deep water, He was not as confident because he was not as fast as the other kids. Vince started to reconsider his decision, not sure if joining the team was a good idea. Over time, As Vince started to learn the techniques of becoming a great swimmer. He became determined and dedicated to beat his own time speed RECORD, Making that a goal at each meet.
Meet after meet, Vince would do an amazing job, Improving his skills every chance he got, from being determined and dedicated to his craft, He started to pick up his time.
Last year, Vince came in second to Last or Last place in 50free, 50fly and 100IM, But NOT THIS YEAR!!! At each meet, Vince started to slowly beat his time speed RECORD. March 4th, 2017 was the Metro Swim league championship, Vince came in 1st place back to back and 2nd place, Beating his original 50free, 50fly and 100IM speed time. He received two ribbons for being in the Top 10, coming in at 9th and 10th place, beating his original Speed Time RECORD in total.
Vince dreams of one day becoming a professional swimmer, In hopes of joining the Olympics and beating Michael Phelps RECORD.

Daily Prompt: Record
Whenever I am underneath a MURMURATION of Birds, I become very nervous, Hoping that none of them poop on me.
Whenever I am underneath a MURMURATION of Birds with open food, I become a little scared, Thinking one bird would notice the food in my hand from a far, Turn around and aim towards me while the rest follows.
The thought of being chewed up, Attacked or Surrounded by Birds gives me the creeps, Especially in New York City , The birds are very tough and not friendly, They do not care, They are not afraid and They are aggressive, A MURMURATION of Birds in NYC has no problem flying so low almost knocking you upside your head, Try to take your food, NO NO NO…..I do not want any problems with them!!
I do not like to see, Be underneath or Around a MURMURATION of Birds it really freaks me out!
Daily Prompt: Murmuration
Breaking PATTERNS are very difficult, As you get older, You have to learn how to change the way you think, The way you present yourself and the way you handle situations. In order to do so, It requires you to break current life PATTERNS that you are 1)Comfortable with, 2) Use to and 3) live for.
PATTERNS are habits people adapt to over time, We are not born with them, We learn them, It could be learned from Society, Environments, Lifestyle, People you associate yourself with, The places you hang out at, The person you date, Family, School, past life experiences or situations etc. These PATTERNS you create are very easy to transition into but so hard to transition out of. But all PATTERNS of life are changeable, You just have to be willing to take the effort.
Anything is possible to change, When it comes to Self-Elevation.
Empowering Women’s Day!!!
Being a Woman to me…..It’s to be Powerful why? Because we birth this Nation Duuuaahhhhhh without us there would be no you. To be a Woman is to be fearless, Is to be confident, Is to be a go getter not a gold digger, To be Independent, To be a Nurturer, Just to be able to wear many hats to transition to who ever you need to be in that moment.
Women are phenomenal, We as women don’t get enough credit, we don’t get enough respect, We don’t get enough praise as we should and it sad because we are one of the most beautifulest creatures on earth, We give life, We lose life to give life, We ruin our bodies sometimes we lose our minds, It’s just so much that comes with being a woman and we are just treated like shit.
