It’s already November. Man, how fast that came, its crazy. First semester is almost over and all I can say is another one almost down and that much closer to graduating. With how much money and loans that go into being a college student, I can understand why now when I was in high school people would say “I don’t know if I am going to college or NO I am not going”.
These are very reason as to why. It is tough trying to pay for school without scholarships and that’s why I feel like each person encouraging young people to go to college, which they should, should give them the best option to save as much money as possible. It would be great if everyone had the opportunity to get full rides, but for some reason its not the case. College should be FREE! It would be so nice. Instead, I get charged for textbooks that I don’t either buy or rarely use because most classes I haven’t need them.
All I want is to Graduate and never look back. I love what I have experienced and am very blessed with the people that have met and built valuable relationships with and the struggles I had to go through to know how to handle certain situations whether in the past or present. It’s all a blessing, but I am ready to strive for my ultimate goal of being in the NBA.
My basketball season has started. My first game was in Saturday, November 3rd, 2018. It was a good game for the team. WE WON. As many teams know, even with great wins you can be happy and proud and there are things to be fixed. We can work on our Rebounding, defense, offensive transition, and Free-throws. If we can balance out and everyone just know their roles we can win every game. Individually, I had 22 pts (points), 4 Reb (rebounds), 6ast (assist), 6 TOs (turnovers). I have to make sure that I take care of the ball as the Point Guard and leader of the team. I know I can do better and take it as a lesson and not as just something negative.
In life you must appreciate your negatives because they can only help you critique yourself and grow. Those losses create opportunities to win. I will finish out my semester strong and continue to gain all the knowledge out of every day, class, relationship, and experience that I have or will go through.
God Bless, Until next time- JoBreil Powell
Don’t think about what can happen in a month. Don’t think about what can happen in a year. Just focus on the 24 hours in front of you and do what you can to get closer to where you want to be! – ERIC THOMAS
