Christmas day was a good day when I woke up I played with my cousin that was visiting from Florida. For Christmas I had got clothes and 2 pairs of shoes which was nice. After, I opened my gifts and spent time with my family, I went to the gym. It was a good workout. I had an extra amount of energy because of the holiday spirit. I was able to get a lot of shots up, work out and do some conditioning. There is nothing like working out on Christmas day. There was no one else in the gym. I had the entire gym to myself. Once I was done with my workout, I went to see Jumanji with my family. The movie was funny and interesting at the same time. It was a lot different from the original Jumanji, which was a lot more serious. In the newer Jumanji they made a lot of jokes. Kevin Hart was pretty funny.

Tuesday was the day after Christmas. I got up early and went to workout with my trainer. It was a great workout as usual. We got alot of shots up and he is always adding new things to my game to get me ready for the next level. We also did alot of conditioning too. I spent a lot of time in the gym.  When I was done, I went to the movies with a couple of my friends. We had a great time. It was fun meeting up with them and hearing about how their Christmas break was going. My grandmother had decided to have a dinner at her house so once the movie was over my brother picked me up from the movies and we went to my grandmother’s house. It was nice because I got to spend time and talk to my cousins and brother. There was also a lot of good food there. I definitely ate alot.

Midweek Wednesday, I got up early to go to the gym to workout. When I got home, I did a little bit of my science midterm outline. Midterms are kind of good because they keep you on track with your school work. Where as if you just took finals at the end of the year than you would have to rethink about everything from the beginning of the year to the end. Also you can use some of your midterm outlines to study for finals. When I finished that I went to the gym again to do some strength and conditioning drills with my brother like we usually do. My brother and I went really hard and were able to get alot of strength work done.

Thursday 12/28/17

 I got up early to take a 4 hour high school admission test. When the test was over I went to the gym to workout. I ended up working out with these two high school guys that were in the gym. It was a good workout. After we worked, out some more High school boys came in so we played a few games of 5 on 5 which was good. I was busting these high school boys. Then my brother and I did strength and conditioning again which was good. When I got home I went to the mall. The mall was closing in about a 30 minutes which I didn't expect so I would have to go back another day .

Friday 12/29/17

 I went to workout with my trainer which was good. The workout was very good a usual. We got alot of shots up and worked on my finishing through contact. After that I went to go get something to eat with my dad. When I got home, I went to the gym with my brother again as usual. We did strength work. Then I went to the mall and this time it wasn't about to close which was good. When I got home, I played games and watched some TV with my younger cousin. It was fun to be able to play with her because she is visiting from Florida.

Saturday 12/30/17

 I woke up early to go workout with coach Walter Welsh(IEXCEL) my AAU coach. We went over a lot of game situations and went through other drills. His drill work is very good. After practice he spent more time with me on this one drill, I asked him for more help on. After practice, I got something to eat then when I came home my brother and older cousin were at my house. It was nice to spend time with them. We hung out at the house and played some board games and watched TV. It was a great spending time with them around the holidays.

Sunday 12/31/17

 I got up early to workout with coach Walter Welsh(IEXCEL) again. It was another good workout and we worked on new and old stuff from yesterday’s workout. When I got home I played with my little cousin again and then I changed my outfit. Then my family and I went to my Uncle’s house for his New Year’s party. We had a great time over my uncle’s house.Its all family and friends. So I was able to countdown the new year with my family. My brother on the other hand went to a party in Harlem with my other brother. I called him to wish him a Happy New Year.
