Well I’ve been very busy working on my basketball skills, I think my shots are improving. My coach even took me aside to work 1 on 1 with me he only does that normally with the starters. I made some really good plays in training, feels good like all the work I’ve put in is worth it. I got the basketball teams photograph yesterday, gonna take it home to show Ma next week.

I’ve been writing more and more on the novel seems to be going on, I think I am gonna ask my mum to read it soon. I just need a person to tell me what they think.

With my reading I have completed book 13 which was very good also 14 was by the same writer they was called Unbroken by Carolynn Amara was a very touching novel makes you aware about the struggles the people that fight for everybody’s freedom go through out there and when they return home which lasts them a lifetime. The second book leads on from the last book and its called Unspoken I really enjoyed going on a journey with the people in the book. Read it for yourself though don’t just take my word for it.

Remember there is only one rule SMILE!!!

Gender in sport
February 7, 2013

I am going to mention the 12th book I have read this year. It’s called Offside by Julianna Stone. This book made helped me with a few things that are going on in my head with one of my essays for university. Gender in sport is a big thing within sport throughout the world. It’s true that it has become easier for women to progress in sport more than before. There is still a long way to go to be equal with men. The media doesn’t help promote the same it does male sports. Look in the newspapers in the back of the sport pages today. I bet there will be a maximum number of two articles about females in sport. Most of the time when we see females in sport being promoted they are used for objects of desire instead of their achievements of the sport they play. If you look at the difference between the sports and the amounts of money for men over women then say it’s OK your wrong. I want the next generation of children to grow up with the same equal chances in sport.

In education we tell our pupils treat everyone the same. As a world we don’t do this. I would bet the time is takes everyone to understand this I will no longer be alive in body. If we want true equal rights in life then as a world we will have to change. If you want the right to wear your religions clothes. The right to tattoo your own arm in a tribute to those that have past. The right to play against the best sportswomen in the world. The right to marry who you want. The right to seat where you want. The right to equal pay. The right to vote in things that effect you.

I want to have the right to change my world for the better for all the world.

One book at a time. One day at a time. One dream at a time. One right at a time.

Gender in sport. It’s not right.

There is only one rule SMILE.

The beginning 19.01.13
January 19, 2013

Welcome to the beginning of the start of my years journey, within the year I am going to try and achieve many different things. With this blog i am going to write about the progress I am making with the thoughts and feelings of everything.

The main goals I am going to give myself are to read 120 books within a year ending on the 31st of December 2013. Another one is to finish my first novel about a young woman struggling to find her wanted profession. The next one is very personal, to lose 2 stone this year. On top of this I hope to achieve the highest potential at university in basketball and on my course.

So far within this year I have made a good base for the chance to complete every goal I have set myself. I have already read 8 books within these ninteen days. All the books made me focus on what type of novels I enjoy the most to read. With knowing I like romance novels with a degree of personal growth that is what I will be writing about within my novel.

I have already lost a pound in weight and eating healthy. I have continued to play many sports to help with my fitness, trying to practice my jump shot a lot more. All of my current grades are on course to give me my 2.1 which is all I need to continue. Within basketball I am pushing myself each training session, when I am feeling tired I dig in to keep going. I want to look back at this point in my life and be proud of what I have done.

Read as much or as little, there is only one rule SMILE!
