Still Smiling and Losing
August 23, 2013

Hey there!

I’ve been busy with life and unable to make time to write.

Right now i am forcing myself to stop for a minute and write.

I am currently still losing weight which I know not from scales but from my clothes being baggy. (Once tight)

There is no basketball on till we return to University which is September. I’m keeping fit by cycling and doing weights to keep my strength.

My writing is still coming on, My book will be finished by the new year ūüôā

Reading 100 books in this year is getting slower and slower I know I’ve read over 25 now but I have not counted up in a while. I will need to get my wriggle on with the reading to finish in time. I remain half full about everything though.

I passed my second year at University with a 2:1

On a very personal note, me and my partner have got in engaged. (ALL Smiles)

There you go just one last thing.

Remember the only rule SMILE!!!

Sport Junkie
February 9, 2013

Today was a productive day I am currently half way through book number 13. I shall name this book if it continues to take my feelings on a journey. I have started my work for university with planning. I’m hoping my mentor at university will help me with the¬†structure¬†of the essays I have written. Weaknesses of mine is writing as my thoughts can never make it to the page fast enough. When writing my novel it’s different. I feel and control the words I write in the novel, with an essay though I control some aspects of it not all. In the two essays I am writing about a subject I do care about. Gender in sport and how promotion of health and exercise should be a whole school approach. I support ideas to improve both.

Talking about my teams I am looking forward to watch the Knicks tonight, Melo is on fire at the minute and the bench is strong. All I can say is bring it on Clippers. Leeds United left me felling all over the place after a draw, I hope Leeds can try and make a push for promotion (Doubtful though). I am still flying high about the Baltimore Ravens though, just wondering what will happen now with the team having to change.

I feel like a bit of a sports junkie all I seem to do is talk about sport it is a big part of my life and my goals but it’s not everything to me. I do look forward to playing sports, watching sports and reading about sport. My partner does think sport is my second love after my xbox haha.

But really I love my family first and everything else is second that’s just the way I think and love.

Wave Seekers
February 2, 2013

I’m not at work this weekend which is good as me and my partner are going to go spend some time together at the beach. Yeah the weather is cold right now but there is nothing like the ocean to make you happy. The noise of the waves crashing onto the shore and you can see what type of person you are by the waves. How each wave could maybe meet your toes but sometimes just a little short, you move too close and get drenched or you don’t move and wait for the sea to come to you. Me and my partner are both wave¬†seekers¬†we go in and look for that wave and if we get drenched so what that’s life. I used to hold back in life but I’ve come to¬†realize¬†life is way too short, you have to try and reach your goals not hold back and get nothing.

The coast was nice we had an amazing time. I read a little more now in book number 11, I have decided to try and keep most of my books under a certain price. I have told my mother about the reading goal I have set myself, she is really impressed. This because last year I read a total of three books. The year before that a grand total of zero. I don’t want to loose my mind like my loving Grandma did by reading and doing more to keep my mind active hopefully I won’t go down that road.

Holiday ideas are still going on, we might go to LasVegas near Christmas time. We have a week in Wales planned with a couple of friends which is hardly my sort of holiday, I would rather go somewhere nice and hot so I can stay in the water longer.

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!
