i've waited so long to finally post it

Important announcement ⚠️

Okaaay it’s been (nearly) 5 fun years! However I have decided to leave this blog;;

I know this may seem too sudden, it probably looks like it came out of nowhere and I apologize for that (◞‸◟) but trust me, it’s something I’ve been thinking about for longer that you’d think. I considered I should wait a bit after my last post which was only last night but well, I couldn’t 😞 and this post has actually been on my drafts for a while, I won’t tell you when exactly I wrote it but, it’s been some time. (I’ve even had to edit it several times too because things kept adding up 💦) Anyways…

“If you still, even if it’s just a little, have some fire left in you, then don’t give up. Keep swinging. Recklessly for as long as you can. Don’t just do things for the team. Do things for yourselves.

“I felt like I wasn’t suited for competitive swimming. The world of competition isn’t for me. So I’d been thinking I’d just go to our local college or something, since there wasn’t anything in particular I wanted to do. But then, I ended up helping Coach Sasabe at the club. At first, I only though of it as helping him out. But then, I started really having fun teaching the kids how to swim. I met Hayato, and I really wanted to do something to help him swim. Remember how you gave me advice when I was at a loss over him? When I taught Hayato how to swim backstroke, he told me, "I’m not scared of swimming anymore! I had fun!” It made me so happy. That’s why I wanted to show even more kids just how fun it is to swim! I want to join the teaching side of the swim world. And to learn how to do that, I’m going to college in Tokyo. That’s the dream I’ve found for myself.“

What is baseball to you, Coach Okamoto?
FIRE. The coach’s and the players’ clash aggressively, and sparks fly! That’s what starts it all. No matter how good you become technically, or how good your practice environment is, if the player on the field are empty, there’s no chance you can win! What controls your techniques and body? The heart! It is my role as the coach to build the fire within the players!
