Diary Of Baller: Jordan Ghee (Totowa, NJ) Entry #3

Hi Basketball Spotlight Family! 
It’s Jordan Ghee and I’m back with my Diary of a Baller Part 3. I hope everyone had a great and safe Christmas. This was the first week of our winter break from school. Somehow, I still had a busy schedule. 

On Monday morning, I worked out with my dad lifting weights and balance exercises. After that, I played video games and then read for a little bit. After I finished reading, I did my 400’s. That evening, my family and I went to a birthday dinner for one of our family friends. 

Tuesday, I woke up early and did my 400’s. After that, I watched a little bit of Netflix before lifting weights with my dad. After my workout, my family and I went to another high school tour and met with the basketball coaches. After the tour, we had to rush home so that I could eat and change quickly, because I had a training session with my trainer @cam_hoo from 7:30-8:30 p.m. 

Wednesday, I didn’t have any training so I made sure to do my 400’s, weights and pullups. After I worked out, my friend came over in the afternoon and we played video games and hung out. 

Thursday, even though it was Christmas Eve, I still wanted to work out, so I ran with my sister at a track. After my workout, my mom and I went to the mall to get clothes for my dad for Christmas. Once I got home, I lifted weights and completed my 400’s. That evening, we had Christmas eve dinner with close friends @_mekhi, @kecia_ragland and @coco_knows. 

Friday, Christmas was finally here! My family and I woke up early to open up our gifts. I got some great gifts from my family and I was very grateful. That night, we flew to Phoenix, Arizona and thankfully had a safe flight. My uncle picked us up from the airport and we went to his house to say hi to our grandmother, aunt and dog. After a short visit with them, we went to our hotel and went to sleep because we arrived so late. 

Saturday morning, my family and I met my uncle for breakfast at a restaurant that grows its own food. After breakfast, I walked the dog with my aunt since the weather was so nice. Then, we went back to the hotel to change because later that day we were going to Top Golf in Scottsdale, Arizona. At Top Golf, we played some games and ate. Overall, I had a great time there and would love to go again. 

Sunday, my family and I decided to walk to our breakfast spot where we met my uncle and aunt. After we ate, I had a workout with @B.J.Letcher (thanks @coach_cboswell for the introduction). At my workout, we worked on ball-handling and coming off screens. I also got a lot of shots up. After my training, I chilled out for a little bit and watched football. Later that night, we met up with my uncle and aunt to have dinner at Spinatos, which is our favorite pizza places in Phoenix. 

So far, I have had a great holiday break from school and have really been enjoying my time here. Thanks for reading. Have a safe and blessed New Year’s Eve. See you next week!
