Thank you for the welcome, and thank you for your answer! ^_^
I've been considering swimming for a while now, and I've always loved the water. My school has a swimming team, but not a swimming pool... I don't know where they go to practice, but if it's far from home, that proves to be a problem by lack of transportation. Either way, I will stand on what you've said, and hearing it from someone else helps in many ways. Also, I have some big ponds up around my house that are always good for a nice swim, and so I would always have somewhere to practice, while ice skating proves to be a lot more difficult. I guess swimming fits better into my schedule, anyhow.
