This past summer, I went to Cancun with some girlfriends for a much-needed vacation. We had a great time relaxing and having fun, but one of my friends wanted to do something a little more adventurous. She asked if I wanted to go scuba diving with her. I was nervous at first, but I said, "Sure!" I've never been diving before; in fact, I'm not a great swimmer and rarely go too deep into the water. However, I figured this was an opportunity to do something new, so I jumped in with both feet (no pun intended).
