Putting a full stop/ looking for someone to wrestle with

I'm shutting down my Friendster's account.
Before doing so, I went through my photo albums and found this picture grabbed from a friend.

It was back in 2001 and 7 years gone by.
(Time must have sat on SR-71 Blackbird and flew by)

I was an archer back in high school and this was my first national tournament held in Ipoh.
Seriously missed those days where sports is the only way of skipping school. I could just walk away from class saying I have archery practices and 'cikgu' will not scold a word.
I could wear my track shirt and walk into school at 8.15am and prefects couldn't jot down my name because I claimed I have archery sessions. (But of course good kid don't really abuse with that la.)
I was not excelling in archery though. With a great team, grabbing few gold medals wasn't difficult at all. I was always the one with lowest points collected but managed to get away with it. Haha. Considered my luckiest days to be in the team and enjoyed all the fun traveling here and there within Malaysia. The best I've got for myself was just a 4th ranking in Selangor state and a Bronze in an open national tournament in Kangar, Kedah back in 2004. I quit after year 2004 and concentrated in SPM. (That's when I started to have time looking into mirror and realized the deprived feminine part of me.)

Having athlete's body is torturing these years coz' I can't seem to find time and good way to release the energy in the muscles after pursuing in design field. Basketball and netball is my favourite but can't seems to find a female team to play with. There are all male on the court whom could kill me with one elbow act unless I was trained to only stay out of the ring and do three-point-shoot. Not fun at all.
Jogging in the park is a regular but it could be pretty boring sometimes. Hiking is much more exciting but can't do it often due to location and time restriction.
The rest is just too fussy to get equipments ready and joining fitness center is just too luxurious for me.
I hope swimming could be my regular exercise from now on besides jogging.
(or just find someone to wrestle with...) :p
