Diary Of A Baller: Christian Bliss (Flushing, NY) Entry #5

Chris and NY Rens

Hello Basketball Spotlight World, 

It’s Christian Bliss and I’m back to tell you how my week went. 

Monday- I got off to a late start today, my first period is social studies every day and it’s boring. But my second period is fun so after that I am able to finish the rest of the day. After school, I got home took a short nap and went to watch Dante’s football game. The school team is undefeated and kept that, Dante had 2 touchdowns. I like to support him because that’s what real brothers do for each other. After the game we got home and went to la fitness and got some work in. This week is going to be more of my off week because I am going to rest a day or two in the week. 

Tuesday- School was really annoying a lot of work due tomorrow and a couple of quizzes I had today. When I got home I knocked out until it was 7, I was resting today so I didn’t go to open gym. But I just did some regular stuff in my room push ups sit ups and weights. I had a lot of homework and studying to do and I enjoyed my day off of “work”. I have a great feeling this year will be my best season yet, I’m in the best shape possible and getting stronger. Tomorrow I will be ready to work. 

Wednesday- I was happy to get a lot of test over with and felt relieved after. When I got home from school I ordered some food to eat and did my homework. Then I went to open gym at the high school, the season is only a month away. I am feeling more and more comfortable playing with my teammates and like my coaches a lot. I think we are going to do good this year and hopefully make a deep run in playoffs. 

Thursday- A lot of drama today in school, was annoying but also was a fun day in school for me. A couple people in my school would know, I am starting to realize a lot of people are jealous. But I have to be able to get over that and do what I want and not care what other people say. When I got home, I was on Face Time with a friend until Dante got home. Then we went to La fitness for a while about 3 hours. By the time I left there I felt so tired but also had the feeling where you know you’re getting stronger. I worked on everything today but focused on my core, arms and chest. It was a long day but definitely was the best day of the week. 

Friday- School was good today, I stayed after school to watch the football game at 4. So right after school I went to play some open run and talk to my coach about the season. When the game finished, I headed back to Queens and went to the New York sports club with my close friend. I was at very tough night for me emotional I have things going on that I need to get over. When I am mad I do anything that has to do with basketball depending where I am. If I could play I will if I can’t I will do sit-ups, push-ups or lift. This gets stuff off of my mind and is something I could do at any point. 

Saturday- I got a good night sleep, woke up ready for my semifinal game today. I got ready and got a haircut then I went to my game up in the Bronx. We played little kids so it wasn’t a real game but we are playing in the chip tomorrow. After the game I went back to my house and packed some stuff up to take to Long Island. Then I left and picked Dante up at the house we went to eat at the Cheesecake Factory. From there we went to the movies with some friends. It was a long night and I needed some rest to play tomorrow. 

Sunday- I took a shower when I woke up, ate some breakfast and was ready to leave early. It was a better game we won by 20 but the game stayed intense throughout. I played well and most importantly we won the chip. This was the first tournament of the year, and definitely looking forward for the season. I won all tournament team and most steals congrats to my other teammates on their awards.

See You Guys Next Week,

Christian Bliss
