too big for him, but it’s okay that means I did something right. On Mama’s other side was my brother Mo, he’s not my real brother, but ever since third grade he’s been like one. Even he took a break from his “work” to come to this game. My family, I wouldn’t ask for a better one.
The team put me down I run to Mama, take her in my arms, the embrace warm and gentle. She can’t form words. She’s proud. Rus appearing behind “You still can‘t see me on the court MVP or not.” I laugh. Mo rushes from the side and picks me up, “Lil Jakey. Boy, look at you. Back in the day dem ankles of yours used to be mines,” he laughs.
“When? The only thing you had on the court when we were little was a front row seat to watch my jumper put work in the net.”
“Yeah yeah whatever. It’s still one thing I can do better than you.” A smirk arises on his face.
Mama checks her watch “Shoot! Jake baby I’m wish I could stay longer to celebrate with you but I told Mr. Henry I’d be at the diner at 9 o’clock and it’s going on 10.”
“I get it go ahead”. I kiss her on the cheek, “See you at home”
She says okay and urges Russle to come with her so she can take him home first, but since she was already late as it is mo offers to take Rus home instead, and they leave. Ricky and Daylon come from behind me, “What are you doing all the way over here? Come on let’s celebrate!” Ricky says. I watch my family exit the gym and let the hype consume me. We won so, I’m going to celebrate, I deserve it.
The party was cool.…
This is the laziest way I use “English”. I usually use this with whomever I text, whenever and wherever I need to. This requires a different style of English, where one abbreviates words. For instance, if I want to say the word “yeah” then I would abbreviate it to “ya” or “yea”. The name of this style of writing is leetspeak. The whole reason I use leetspeak when I text is because it helps me type faster. Commonly, I am in class and I need to type “Yeah, I will talk to you later. Goodbye.”…

In the quote from Writing Without Teachers, Peter Elbow talks about his ideas on the process of writing. He says, “think of writing as an organic, developmental process in which you start writing at the very beginning – before you know your meaning at all – and encourage your words gradually to change and evolve” (Elbow). Elbow believes that you can’t know what you are going to discuss or to comment on until you are done writing and all of your thoughts finally come together to make sense. He…
The discussion of mental toughness has to be the number one discussed topic in sport psychology. It seems that everyone is on the same sheet of music agreeing that it’s vital to success, but it’s very debatable to "what is mental toughness?” All of the definitions of mental toughness in this article sound really tasty and easy to bite off on. However, I’m one who leaves nothing to chance and I think there is more to the definition than "sociable, outgoing, calm, relaxed, competitive,…
