Monday 1/22/18

Monday was another good day. I went to school and worked on my project with my partner. At the end of the day we had written an essay and wrote our dialogue for a play. After school since I had a lot of homework I stayed after school. Then I went to workout with my trainer. It was a great workout because I went through some new and old drills. Once the workout was over, I went to the rec center to get a few games in against a few of the high school kids. It gave me an opportunity to play against the high school boys. It also gave me a chance to work on my weaknesses.

Tuesday 1/23/18

 I had violin practice. Since the concert is coming up soon my violin teacher was kind of stressed. She asked me to do solo performance again this year. Rehearsal was very good but also intense. She wants to make sure that we are prepared. After school, I went to workout with my trainer. He put me through some drills and we got a lot of shots up. Once practice was over, I went home read my book and went to sleep.

Wednesday 1/24/18

 I had to take an exam. I think I did very good on it. Once the school day was over, I completed all of my homework. When I was done with that I got another good workout done. After that I went to practice with my school basketball team.

Thursday 1/25/18

Thursday was a good day in school. I finished up a project that I had been working on. I also got my grades back from a few previous test. I did very good on both of them. I also had a meeting with my book club. We discussed the book that we are currently reading. It was very interesting to see other people’s insights into the book. After the book club, I went to the gym to warm up. I had a game later in the evening. We won the game by a good margin. I did my great.

Friday is always a good day. I am looking forward to the weekend. School was a normal day. We had a quiz today in school. I was definitely prepared. At lunchtime, I hung out with my friends. We talked about our plans for the weekend. We joked around at the table. After school, I Went to workout with my trainer, It was a very good workout as usual. We did a lot of conditioning drills and got a lot of shots up. Once the workout was over, I went to the gym to get a few games in against the high school boys. I always have fun playing against the boys. After the gym, I went to the movies with my mom and dad. We went to see Maze Runner: The Death Cure. It was great. It may have been the best one yet.

Saturday 1/27/18

I had an early morning workout with my trainer. We did a lot of shooting and did some ball handling drills. After the workout, I went home and went back to sleep. I slept for a few hours. Once I got up, I went to the mall and met up with a few of my friends. We hung around the mall for a few hours. I also had to get ready for senior night at my school. Senior night is when all the 8th graders on the basketball team get honored as well as their parents. The parents are handed a rose at center court. It's our way of showing our appreciation to our parents. During Senior night all three of the 8th grade teams played. The first game was the 8th grade boys B team. We had the second game in which we won by a large margin. The third game was won by our 8th grade boys A team. We won all three games this evening. Once the games were over, We had a big party. The DJ came and played some music. There was also plenty of food for the parents and the players. We stayed in the gym playing games until about 1 am in the morning. We played games not only against each other but also against our parents. It was a lot of fun.

Sunday 1/28/18

 I went to early morning Mass. After the service, I went to grab something to eat. Afterwards,   I went to the Gauchos gym to watch a few games. All of the games were very good. Many of the girls that played also play for the same AAU organization as me. I wanted to go and show my support. One of the high schools that played, is also a potential high school that I may attend in September.
