Diary Of A Baller: Jaden Bradley (Concord, NC) Entry #6

Bradley Work And Play

Welcome back and thanks for reading my journal. Here’s what I did this week. 

Monday morning already, I don’t really enjoy Mondays. It’s so hard to get up and motivated especially if I had a busy weekend. I went to school, the day went by kind of slow. I had a few quizzes that I had to get done. This is midterm week so we will get our grades to take home. I think I did pretty well do I’m excited to show my parents. After school it was practice time, the regular season will be ending soon and the middle school playoffs will start. I think my team will do pretty well if we keep playing hard. Once I get home, I started my homework and I split it between dinner since I had a lot of work to do. It’s time to get some rest...good night.

Diary Of A Baller: Jaden Bradley (Concord, NC) Entry #5

The Bradleys At The Kentucky vs Tennessee Game!

Happy New Year everyone! Welcome to week 5 of my journey. 

Monday morning, first day of 2018. After being back in New York for a few days, it was nice to see the sun again. I forgot how cold winter really is. One more day before the break is over, so I think I will play 2K for a while. I have not really done a lot today, so I am out to the garage to get a workout in and start 2018 off right.
