Diary Of A Baller: Kabrien "The Boss" Goss (Trenton, NJ) Entry #7

Kabrien Goss

What’s Up Spotlight World, 

It’s Kabrien “The Boss” Goss and here’s how my week went. Monday, I went to school and afterwards went to the gym to work out. It was a very hard workout and I noticed a lot about my game. Tuesday, after school I had AAU practice and scrimmaged against our freshman team. They were bigger than us and stronger than us but we battled as best as possible. 

Wednesday, school seemed to be short and I took this as a rest day. After I finished my homework and make up work I went to sleep. Thursday was my last day of school for the week and it seemed to be the longest. Everybody was talking about the new online courses and stuff but me? I was just ready to get out that school. After school I got home and worked out in my room. The weekend was tough considering almost everything was closing. But of closure I got in the gym and confused to push myself. Sunday, I got him super sore and took a bath in Epson Salt. 

 See You Guys Next Week For My Final Entry!
