Diary Of A Baller: Christian Bliss (Flushing, NY) Entry #6

Christian Bliss 

What’s Up Basketball Spotlight World, 

It’s Christian Bliss and I back to let you know how my week went. 

Monday- School went by quickly, when I got home I was tired so I took a nap. Then I got up did some studying for my tests tomorrow and was out to La fitness. I did core work in the beginning then I went to the court and got some runs in. After I did my legs I usually only to 3 sets for leg press. But today I did 6 because I know tomorrow and Wednesday are my days off for the week. Then I used beach press and didn’t do a lot of weight because I don’t need to yet. By that time, it was 10:30 and we left the gym. When I got home I took a shower and ordered some food. 

Tuesday- I came in at the end of 1st period because I got up late. I took my Spanish test today after school I went to Dante’s football game. It was his last game of the year, the team finished undefeated for the season. When I got home, I had some studying to do for my social studies test tomorrow. Then I did some sit ups and ab-rollers because my arms were dead from yesterday. I got a good night sleep and am ready for my test first period tomorrow. 

Wednesday- Today was Halloween. On Halloween, for most kids my age people go to parties and stuff. But at these parties nothing good comes out of it. This Halloween I didn’t really do anything but it was for the better. I didn’t do anything because it saved me from any trouble I could’ve got in. Being a serious athlete, comes with a lot of different commitments you may not realize. I sacrifice a lot so I can play this game at a high level and I am working so hard to get to the level I need to be at. 

Thursday- It was a boring day in school everyone was tired from yesterday. After school I went to a football orientation at the high school. I have always wanted to play football but never really played. Next year if I decided to stay at the high school I am going to play so I went to the orientation today. Lifts start in a month all the way until the next season. Then after I got home did some homework and left to our team practice. We did some strength and conditioning in the beginning and then got right into the normal practice. 

Friday- School went by quickly I was excited for the weekend. When I got home, my mom’s friend picked me up from the house and took me back to Queens. When I got home, I went straight to the New York sports club. I always go when I am back home there because it is close to my house so I can always get there. Tomorrow I have to get up early to take the Tach exam it is for Catholic high schools. I still don’t know where I am deciding to attend high school yet has to do mainly with this season. 

Saturday- I got up early today to take the test at Molloy high school. It was really easy except one part of the test where you had to connect patterns and unfold shapes. Besides that, I thought I did well. After I went to my grandma’s house to visit her, I haven’t seen her in a long time and she isn’t feeling good. So, I went by and spent some time with her. When I got home I went to the gym with my brother. It is always better to go to the gym with someone because you can take turns doing sets and help each other on bench pressing, box jumps and other stuff like that. Then I went and hung out with friends for the rest of the night. 

Sunday- I woke up early, I had a game today in Brooklyn it was a blowout. After the game, I got home took and took a nice nap. When I woke up I felt much better, I ate something and discussed with my brother my high school decision. Then I had a lot of homework due tomorrow and a project to do. I worked from 7 straight through 12 by that time I had to go to sleep for school tomorrow. 

 See You Guys Next Week,
