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.

Ravens and training
January 21, 2013

I made it home yesterday night after seeing one of my close friends before I left. I am hoping to see her again soon, she gives me a lot of happiness as a friend. She has always got a new person on the love scene. I managed to watch the whole Ravens game which was good I love Football but very new to it. My main sport has always been soccer from a very young age. Basketball is my second sport but I love the team I’m in and I’m not too bad a player. In fact I had my first training this week tonight, I played hard in the new plays we learnt. I feel if I keep going to every training with a open mind to improve and listen to the coach then next season I might even be in the starting five.

I have only been playing for the team since September, there are 15 of us in the squad. I’ve played in only four games this season partly due to the fact I work on Friday nights so I can’t play in the Friday games. I’m mainly used as a centre for the team as I am one of the tallest. I trained hard. We have a game tomorrow and I’ve been selected for the team which makes me feel good. We have to drive over an hour to play against the team but it will be worth it, we are second in the league at the moment. If we keep training as a team, working for each other we might go top of the league.

I managed to write another chapter on my novel as well. I’m really enjoying being creative with my writing again, I did write poems from a young age. As time has gone on and with life filling with other things, my writing became lost. I haven’t yet told anyone personally that I am writing this novel as I am cautious as I do not know what reaction I shall receive off those who’s opinion I care a great deal about.

I shall leave it here today and always remember there is only one rule SMILE!!!
