⚓Heyo. My name is Anna Paige Padilla and I still like to call myself a rower, even though I tore my Glenoid Labrum during Head of the Hooch 2012. I was told if I ever row again I will need surgery and even then I will never have proper use of my shoulder again. However, I am convinced I’m Sea Biscuit and that you’ll see me in a boat Fall 2013 at whatever college I decide to attend. I am not sure if I’ll be a rower or a coxswain in the scenario, but I’ll be something. I’m sure of it.
So yeah. I’m focusing on losing weight at the moment for my possible coxing career. I was a midget rower at 5’ 4” but I like to think I made up for it with heart and determination. I am (oh man… was) one of three Varsity Captains on Dallas United Crew and even though I’m not in a boat anymore… rowing is my life.
Besides rowing, things that make me happy are: lame puns, my cats Harmony (I couldn’t say Hermione when I was younger) and Mars, Harry Potter, Sherlock, The Office, rugby, the UK (but more specifically England) and books. (PS IF YOU HAVE A GOOD BOOK I SHOULD READ INBOX ME THE TITLE PLEASE) Hmm… what else. My oar’s name was Rupert, I’m exceptionally awkward, and I wrote a book about assassins. ⚓
