Hobby Road Test: (Re)Joining A Swim Team

I am a hobby kind-of-girl. As in, I very much enjoy them and have dabbled in a lot of them. Over the years, I have joined both bowling and pool leagues. I’ve gotten into scrapbooking, as a way to preserve memories of life and keep records of the best articles I’ve written over the years.
