Diary Of A Baller: Jordan Ghee (Totowa, NJ) Entry #4

Happy New Year Spotlight Family! 

It’s Jordan Ghee and I’m back with my Diary of a Baller Part 4. I hope everyone had a great and safe New Year. 

On Monday, I was still enjoying my time in Phoenix, AZ. I worked out with @B.J.Letcher and @marialshayok. We worked on coming off screens, footwork and shooting. Marial also shared with me some tips about his work ethic and his journey from high school, to college, to the NBA. That evening, my family and I went to dinner. 

Tuesday, I had another workout with @B.J.Letcher and we worked on ball handling. I got up a lot of shots that day! That afternoon, my family, uncle, aunt, and I rode electric scooters around a park. That evening, we all went to dinner at this nice restaurant called Culinary Dropout. 

Wednesday, my family and I went to the gym in the afternoon, before our flight home that night. My mom and sister ran on the treadmill, while my dad and I lifted weights, did some pull ups and also did a short run. After our workout, we went back to the hotel and packed our bags. We left the hotel and headed to my uncle and aunt’s house so we could spend some time and go to dinner with them. For dinner, we went back to this really good pizza place called Spinatos. After we ate, we went back to their house and hung out until it was time to go to the airport. Our flight departed at midnight so I made sure I got some sleep because we were landing in Newark at 6:00 a.m. 

Thursday, New Year’s Eve, we were back home in New Jersey and went to go get Covid tested. Luckily, all of our results came back negative. After the Covid test, I took another nap because I jet lagged! When I woke up it was perfect timing because a few friends and family came over and hung out with us to watch the ball drop and bring in the New Year. 

On Friday, it was New Year’s Day! I woke up did my 400’s and ate breakfast. In the afternoon, I lifted some weights with my dad. Later that evening, my sister, one of her friends, @_Mekhi and I all went to the mall to hangout. 

Saturday morning, I lifted weights with my dad at home since the gym was closed. After that, I ate and got ready to go get lunch at the mall with my sister and @_Mekhi. After the mall, my sister wanted to pick up one of her friends because we were going to the BAPE Store in New York to do some shopping for my upcoming birthday. We left the city and headed straight to a 7:00 p.m. basketball workout. We worked on ball handling, creating separation, and shooting in rhythm. 

Sunday morning, @_Mekhi and I went to the gym to shoot around while my sister and dad ran on the treadmill. After the gym, we went back to my house, ate lunch and played video games. That evening, I started studying for the high school placement test (HSPT) because I have to take the test at the end of the month. 
Thanks for reading. Happy 2021! 

See you all next Sunday!
