One new thing that I recently learned was scuba diving. First, I had to complete online course work. The online courses were long, hard, and fun. Then, I learned how to assemble my gear together. Assembling my gear was hard and challenging. Once my gear was assembled, I learned how to put on my gear and that part of the process was pretty easy. Next, I had to practice what I learned in the pool. It took me several days. Some lessons were fun, some were not, and some were scary. I tried my best to focus on the task and the end result to help push through my fears. This is something that I have been wanting to do for eight years, ever since my dad got certified. I am so happy, exited, and proud of myself for trying something new. And best of all, I get to do this with my dad.
