On December 4th us statesmen played Pittman Community College in our home gymnasium, in the first quarter we were filed by Roman Trass and our forward player Tayvon Mealy made the first 2 points as free throws from our file. We were up the first half of the game with 49-37 and we slowly let Pittman come up and ended the game with 86-87. Sadly this was our first lost of the season and it males it worse that we lost only by one point. There were a lot of mistakes made this game and I feel this is the reason we didn't get the win this time. I attended this game as an out of class event.
I attended the basketball tournament last weekend. The tournament was very interesting and all the teams did a great job. This was the first year ever for this tournament , and I was very surprised with the outcome of people that showed up; our gymnasium was packed. I remember one of the teams were from Maryland and they were pretty good, they were very good with their 3-point shots. In the end the final game was very close ; but us statesmen took the win in the end and won the tournament. I am very intense basketball fan so It was getting very intense for me during the game when the refs kept calling false calls, but we won in the end so nothing else really matters. I'm looking forward to attending the next basketball game, I had a ball.
I'm loving my thanksgiving break, although there has been a lot of sadness going on from my uncle passing away. I feel like his death made us all come a little closer around these holidays. Usually I'm not looking forward to the holidays because there is a lot of fussing and fighting going on when all the family is together. This year I'm highly surprised and grateful that its and calm and peaceful, it really sucks it took to bring us here but I'm just glad its like this.
my niece came to visit me at home today, this really made my day. I rarely ever see her so i was overly excited, and she was more than happy to see me. I almost cried she was jumping up and down and screaming when she first saw me, she instantly ran to me for me to pick her up. She's only 2 and she knows how to talk very well, so she had soo much to tell me, although it all didn't make sense It felt great hearing her say words. When it was time for her to go she cried and screamed , she told her mom she didn't want to leave her auntie, and she asked if she could stay with me, this really made me feel warm inside knowing she missed me as much as I missed her. When it was time for her to actually go she made me walk her to the car and and put her in her car seat and she told me she loved me and I better be home soon, those weren't her exact words but that's basically what she meant. She stays in a whole nother state so its really hard for me to see her.
Me being a Christian , I feel as if a cross is a very religious figure; but some people that I know truly hate the term religion. My friend explained to me that he doesn't believe in any religion at all, he doesn't think the is any type of holy figure, so he praises to no one. As a child he was forced into church by his parents , so when he got old enough to make his own decisions he opted not to attend church. He would always questions where God came from and how this religious stuff came about, so the more he researched it the less he believed. Now knowing the picture is called Pissed Christ, it made me think even more of how my friend feels.
As a child I was considered a father-less child, my birth-father passed away when I was 1 years old. So since I was 1 till about 3 my mother was the mother and father in my life. At this point in life I'm the only child. At the age of 3 my mother met my stepfather and eventually married and had kids by him. He took me in like I was his own , and didn't treat me any different than his other children. Soon he and my mother decided that it would be a great idea for him to adopt me, then I would officially be considered his child. I was only 8 at the time but this was the greatest feeling ever , knowing that I actually had a father knowing he technically wasn't. Back then it really didn't make sense to me , I knew what was going on but I really couldn't make sense of it all. As the years went by I understood it even more and I will forever love my stepfather being a father to me. Without a father figure like him in my life steering me down the right path, I would not have made it this far and I damn sure wouldn't have made it to college. So I always let him know how thankful and appreciative I am of him. I can sort of relate to children that are considered father-less, I'm just fortunate I had someone to step up to the plate and be a father figure in my life.
I guess we can say I had a very eventful break, it ok for me to say that I missed my bed very much so. Me and my bed have the best relationship we cuddle every night. LOL ! (i hope everyone else break was as good 1as mine!)
