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!!!

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.

Go Ravens
February 3, 2013

After the transfer ending I have been hopeful on my team Leeds Utd as I want them back into the¬†Premiership. They¬†¬†sadly lost yesterday but my beloved New York Knicks beat the Kings and showed some amazing 3 pointers. I need to get my own person 3 point game up. The Knicks inspire me to improve which is how a team should inspire the fans. The only other team which I support is the Baltimore Ravens which if you don’t know are in the Super Bowl tonight after following them all season to get where they are now is epic. They have shown heart to get where they are now. All I can do is watch from home and support maybe a little screaming.

First I have to do some work for university seeing as I have now got four assignments to get started, anyone with a degree in sport can help me if you want but I have to explain how sport went from exclusion to inclusion. Another one is explain the importance of HRF in schools today. Seriously anyone’s help is welcome.

Go Ravens!!!

Thinking of me, Who I be.
January 29, 2013

Today I spent most of it, Listening to Macklemore & Ryan Lewis their songs speak to me with the words and music. Their songs have made me think about what makes me to this world. This is all I can think of – My loving family making myself caring and have the streak of cheeky comedy. My Music selection, random genres from pop, old school, hip hop, r & b, punk, rock, cheesy love songs, dance music, acoustic. I love many different songs this is thanks to my mother’s taste in music and my sister’s too. My sporting backbone given to me by my brother. Growing up with no father figure with a Mother working three jobs to raise her three children, my brother took me under his wing teaching me sports. During School days I played sport many different kinds which have me a natural high. My writing which came from writing lyrics¬†originally¬† to then poems and then short stories. Reading other’s thoughts and feeling, the facts of things spoke to my soul and mind. Love from all of these things make me complete, Love from my family blood and adopted, Love for sport playing and supporting, love for the art in the world that effects the senses.

I have wrote some more of my novel, read over three chapters in my 11th book of the year with is about a couple one a NBA star and the other a Dancer, I shall let you know if it ends up to be a good book. I feel I can achieve my goal of 120 books in a year if I keep going at the pace I am at now. ¬†I’m going to write something on here which I wrote today just a random thought maybe it can be classed as a poem.

Strong

I broke through in time

to save the hope within my soul, I can make the difference

All I need is strength

 

to carry on this life with a smile

is harder than crying on the way down

remain tall nothing to do with height

Have pride in your choices, even if their wrong

there is no shame in knowing

your mistakes

As long as you learn from them

 

So smile, Stand tall, make mistakes

as we learn to stay Strong.

 

Thank you for reading.

Work can kiss my (INSERT WORD HERE)
January 27, 2013

I’ve been busy with working two jobs not had much time to write on here due to keeping the little time I have to write and read to complete my goals this year. One of my jobs is at the weekend only and the people who run it don’t know how to run a tap! I’ve over 28 hours in two days and I am tired. Wish my other job paid more then I wouldn’t have to do my weekend job. The job I like is working with children that don’t have that much in the world. I enjoy that job more than¬†any other job i have had so far.

The novel I have been writing is coming together nicely I have decided how to twist the story to keep the readers¬†interested. I have now told a few more people about me trying to write a novel, they all want to read it and are supporting me through it. This means so much for me, I’ve always had a dream about having a home by the sea and sitting there writing with the ocean in the background.¬†Surprisingly¬†I’m not doing anything at university towards this dream. I am aiming to get a degree which will give me the¬†opportunity¬†to have more spare time to write.

I had a check up with my¬†dietitian¬†with great results, I got on the scales scared as hell of the outcome. To my delight I have lost nearly 1 stone since seeing her last. She gave me praise and my partner did too, I just have to keep it up and not give up. I wish I was like my partner and could eat anything and not put weight on. I eat really good, exercise a lot and still stay bigger than normal. My doctor says the fact I have PCOS doesn’t help with my weight problem.

I go back to university tomorrow and have basketball practice, I am really looking forward to it. I like getting on that court, marking up and taking the game to the other team. I will get that starting¬†position¬†one day. I hope my parents will come watch me one day too, during my early days playing soccer she would never come and watch me play. I want her to see how far i have come with my¬†physical¬†side of life. I don’t get to see my mum that much seeing as she live over 180 miles away from me now. I would like to see it in her face the fact she is proud of me.

Well I best make use of this time I have free and do some writing.

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.
