I saw this coming. Coach J being disappointed in us. We hella goof around, and we deserved to run 25s ( 5 suicides ) and 10 laps up and down the base line and each time you get to the base line you do 15 push ups. We have so much talent in Scholars program and we take it for granted. I feel bad for Johnny, who’s the only one taking it seriously, every single practice. We wing it on game days, but sometimes its just not good enough. We have practice to get better and build chemistry as a team and not just to have fun and meet up with your friends. This practice made me realize that me fooling around and fooling around with teammates during practice is going to be pain in my ass in the end. The JV Black team has a lot of work to do. I need to step up. I was teamed up with all JV players during 5 on 5 on 5. We managed to kind of work things out towards the end. Made progress and I’m happy that we did. This whole thing includes me too, so don’t go off and saying shit like I’m being a hypocrite. I’m out,
“Michelangelo said the best way to judge the essential elements of a sculpture is to throw it down a hill and the unimportant pieces will break away. Sometimes, life is like that. It tosses us down a hill. When we reach the bottom, only the important things are left, and that’s when our vision clears. That’s when we hold on tight to what we know, while hope stirs inside us. It’s all a matter of perspective.”—(via 472239364) (via happythings) (via playlaughgrow)
Believe that everything happens for a reason, people change so you can learn to let go. Things go wrong so that you appreciate it when they're right. You believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself. Sometimes, good things fall apart so better things can fall together.
“Because that’s what people do. They leap, and hope to God they can fly, because otherwise, you just drop like a rock, wondering the whole way down, why in the hell did I jump? But here I am, falling, and the only one that makes me feel like I can fly, is you.”—Hitch | Submitted by: irawrr (via quote-book)
“Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. Look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true. Think only of the best, work only for the best, and expect only the best. Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. Give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others. Live in the faith that the whole world is on your side so long as you are true to the best that is in you!”—Christian D. Larson | Submitted by: Earf (via quote-book)
so many good memories. Hard work pays off, for good 3 hours we just have hella fun, scream our lungs out and support other classes as well. Same with this year. I hope I get picked next year and senior year. It’s about to be hella better! We gottta work on our fucking games tho!
“We’re so inconsistent about what we let kill ya. “Smoking? Must be eradicated. Marijuana? Zero tolerance.” But there’s lots of ways to kill yourself. You know what I think kills you? Stress, and being a workaholic, and never getting laid, and, uh, McDonalds, and staying mad at people, and lying for a living, and three-martini lunches, and the all-American breakfast, and whatever the fuck Elvis was doing. That’s what kills you.”—Bill Maher (via nihilnoetia) (via quote-book)
I sometimes think that its the total opposite. I think that our mouth is saying ” you are the last thing on my mind”, but our mind is saying “you are the first thing in my mind” I’m saying this from my own experience. I’ve said that you are the last thing on my mind but really it was bothering me the most, and it was all over my head. I couldn’t get it out of my mind, but I still simply lied and said “you are the last thing on my mind.” We don’t always want other people to know how we’re feeling not cuz we’re afraid of feeling vulnerable, its just that we just don’t want to say. I DO lie when I don’t want to tell people things. Just saying. I’m speaking for myself. Today was the last Trojan Olympics practice =( it was fun tho. I’m gunna get ready for bed. I’m out.
you try to get at girls or get to know them, but in real life its so awkward cuz you don’t know much about them and you don’t know where to start or what to talk about, but online it seems so much fun and easier. Maybe, its just cuz some girls don’t meet the guys half way, y’knw? It can only work with 2 people’s effort.
it’s so funny how you talk so differently online, but in real life you sound like a vulnerable little girl and so nice to everyone, but you speak your mind behind internet. I don’t like that, I don’t like that at all. I know I’m hella judging but who are we to say you don’t have the right to judge? Everyone criticizes and judges others on everything, but it was bothering me that how you talk changed so much, not a big deal, but it bothers me for some reason. I’m out.
“Forgiveness is never easy. Bitterness is easy, hatred is easy. But forgiveness, that is a tough one. Sometimes people say things they don’t mean or do things they can’t take back. Sometimes we do things we can’t take back. We’re all afraid of something.”—One Tree Hill (via yourhappyplace) (via quote-book)
“If you wind up with a boring, miserable life because you listened to your mom, your dad, your teacher, your priest, or some guy on tv telling you how to do your shit, then you deserve it.”—Frank Zappa. (via sexismandthecity) (via yeahapparently) (via quote-book)
Just because somebody flirts with you doesn't mean they like you. Just because somebody likes you doesn't mean they want to go out with you. Just because somebody wants to go out with you doesn't mean they love you. Just because somebody loves you doesn't mean they won't hurt you. Because people lie, things change. Boyfriends cheat, bestfriends ditch, and there are always going to be those people who would kill to see you fall.
“You’re going to come across people in your life who will say all the right words at all the right times. But in the end, it’s always their actions you should judge them by. It’s actions, not words, that matter.”—Nicholas Sparks (via kari-shma) (via quote-book)
“Life changes every minute of every day. You lose friends. You gain friends. You realize your friend wasn’t ever really your friend, and that person you used to hate can make a really good friend. You look for love. You find love. You lose love. You realize that all along you’ve been loved. You laugh. You cry. You laugh so hard that you cry. You do this, you do that. You really wish you hadn’t done that. You learn from that and are glad that you did. You have your ups. You have your downs. You see good movies. You see bad movies. You look at others and wish you were them. You then realize who they are and are glad that you’re you. You love life. You hate life. In the end, you just find yourself happy to be living life, no matter what’s thrown at you.”—(via karababy) (via itskatherinemae) (via dpurificacion)
“‘Happy,’ I muttered, trying to pin the word down. But it is one of those words, like Love, that I never quite understood. Most people who deal in words don’t have much faith in them and I am no exception—especially the big ones like Happy and Love and Honest and Strong. They are too elusive and far too relative when you compare them to sharp, mean little words like Punk and Cheap and Phony. I feel at home with these, because they’re scrawny and easy to pin, but the big ones are tough and it takes either a priest or a fool to use them with any confidence.”—
“Finish every day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”—Ralph Waldo Emerson (via kari-shma) (via quote-book)
Dope ass day. Not going into details. Party talks and future psychic shit with cards, talks, more talks, walks, steals, Steve, asian lady in a wheel chair, psycho looking girl scouts, Giorgio’s, shits, talks, dine and ditch, thrills, rush, talks, shitz, talks, plans, paper ball fights, talks, talks and talks. It was a fun ass day. No lie. You gotta be there to know what I’m talking about. I’m out.
