It’s amazing the bonds that you make when you play a particular sport. That’s one thing I can say that I love about basketball is that you make bonds with new people and learn new things from these people. I’ve met some amazing women the season but they were a few in particular that I really became close with. It sucks to know that you only have a limited time with them so you tried not to take every moment for granted. Being a senior really sucks because I’m going to miss my teammates. Even though we’ve had our moments which everyone has they will always be my sisters. Playing a sport doesn’t only create bonds but it creates a family. We’ve shared the greatest moments together. We’ve even cry together. But it’s those moments that brings us closer together.
People always ask me why do I wear heels and when I’m already so tall. I think being able to wear heels in being over 6 foot shows a lot of confidence in a woman. To not care about what people may think of her because she’s the tallest person in the room. I take a lot of pride when I wear my heels. I feel like I’m the center of attention. I feel like everybody is watching me and I love when all eyes are on me. I know I may sound a little conceited and self-centered but I take a lot of pride in wearing my heels. A lot of men find that intimidating when a woman is taller than them. But I think every man needs a tall girl in heels;she someone that stands out more. So do you prefer to have a tall girl in heels who stands out or a petite girl in heels who lives in with everyone?
Last night I went to a fight night party for the Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao fight. For a lot of rounds it looked like a close fight. But though Manny Pacquiao through a lot of punches he didn’t connect with many. And although it may have seemed like Floyd Mayweather was against the ropes he still uses defense well and through his defense he was able to connect with Manny Pacquiao to win the fight. But a lot of people still say that many Pacquiao should have one but like they said it’s not about the punches you throw is the ones that connect to your opponent. Mayweather was really moving his feet so when Pacquiao thought he had him cornered he put his hands up to block the punches and quickly moved out the way and hit him with the jab many times. At the end of the fight those points added up which gave me Mayweather the victory.
Monday we had our fall semester Tclub athletic banquet. I was presented with the T award for the two years I’ve attended Tech. The Tclub banquet Is when all the athletes get an award for the years that they were playing for tech. Although it shows appreciation to all the athletes I think they should have more awards to get to the athletes. They should have MVP awards GPA awards just to show appreciation to the athletes that work hard in their sport and that helps motivate their teammates. It’s hard to win MVP against all the other teams in your conference so why not give athletes a chance to be the best athlete they can be on the team and at their school. I think I’m more awards will not only motivate athletes but help them make themselves better players.
I told myself I was going to stop flat ironing my hair after this semester but it seems like I can’t. I don’t think people realize how hard it is to maintain natural hair. It’s thick and very curly, it sometimes well all the time is hard to comb through. I just think it’s easier for me to maintain it when it straighten. But then I go back to the moment where I want to stop using heat on my hair because it damages it a lot. So I leave my fro in for a long period of time. I’m so I’m indecisive with what I want to do with my hair sometimes. It gives me a headache. But at the in the day I still love my curls and it’s hard to go without them for long time I think that’s why it’s hard for me to keep it straight.
If I could play basketball for the rest of my life I would. There just something about competition and the rush that you get from a close game. I think a lot of people take the experience to play college basketball for granted. When you’re in the moment you don’t really care. You just go to practice and play the games. Then reality starts to set in when its your senior year. What’s going to happen after the season? Will I be able to play the next level? Am I good enough? .. If you go hard every chance you get. You should never have to ask that question. You never take these years for granted. It will be over before you know it.
I wonder if the cafeteria cooks actually take time to think about what they’re going to cook. Sometimes they cook things that majority of people won’t eat. Why can they just me simple. Like fried or baked chicken or chick breast. They make things and half of the time I don’t even know what it is. Like who really eats Brussel sprouts and asparagus. Maybe I’m just a picky eater. But I understand everyone might like different things but can we have a little originality besides all the extra stuff. The only I eat in the Cafeteria now is French fries and a salad, maybe a salad. After a while that get tiring.
