The Art of Procratination

Posted by:

This past summer I started reading a book called The Art of Procrastination. After reading the chapter on how to take naps randomly during the day, it be came clear to me that I was a professional at this so I closed the book and started reading Time Management for Dummies (ironically, still haven’t found the time to finish that one).

So here I am living amongst the hills of Sheffield working on a masters course, playing basketball (when not injured), ...

Language Barriers

Posted by:

When I tell people I am playing basketball in England they always do one of two things: Ask me if they speak English in England (the answer is in the question), or they say “Cheerio mate” to which I reply “except they don’t actually say cheerio”.

2. When people have 3 different sets of dumbells in front of them ...

Recap of the season until now:

After tearing my achilles and being condemned to the bench for the first half of the season, I’ve been able to watch a lot of basketball. Our first game, we added Julie to the team and I believe that she hadn’t practiced with us before then. It was a Cup game against Leeds that we won by 20 plus. Since that game, we haven’t lost a game (9-0) and have beaten every team by 20 ...

Allow Me to Introduce Myself

Posted by:

The first thing that you should know about me is that I am very random.

I love basketball. Always have and always will, probably more so than most people you will meet. My parents tell me I cried for 7 months straight as a baby and was only quiet when I was watching basketball with my Father or my parents were driving me around in a car. I didn’t like to be held, and I actually beat the cliche and ran ...
