November 13, 2018…
Winter is slowly approaching. The leaves have begun changing colour. The island is still quiet as ever.
Been practicing a lot of basketball recently. This year I helped my team finish second in the city, which makes me realize how easy it would be to win the championship, if I was actually good at basketball. I am average at best and we were able to finish 2nd. That is why I decided to start practicing a lot more. Might as well try to win it all.
Started Japanese lessons. I finally reached a level where I require additional explanation. Simply studying myself and trying to make sense of the information online and from my textbook won’t cut it anymore. There are the last couple years here (in Japan) and I have to make them count.
Waking up at 4:30am every weekday to exercise and study. In the beginning it was hard but over time it got easier and it has become a regular routine. I can never sleep in on the weekends though.
