My winter break was boring and too short. I didn’t do anything exciting during the break. I stayed home for the most part. The first week was pretty much a trip to the mall every other day. I had basketball the whole time tournaments in Fairfax and practice here or at the boys and girls club.
For Christmas I went to my Dad’s side of the family late around 7 o’clock for dinner we had a potluck or so had some laughs then left to my aunties on my Mom’s side around 10 or 11 because my moms family celebrates Christmas on December 24 at midnight practically the next day; December 25 but the fact that we stay awake the whole time is the difference. I didn’t get as much as I usually do I guess money was low this year with the whole economic crisis. On the 25th Christmas day I pretty much relaxed and did my own little tradition which is to watch the basketball games on abc but was real disappointed when both my favorite teams lost; the Boston Celtics and the Phoenix Suns.
Then I had basketball the next week and pretty much practice early in the morning every day. Then came New Years celebrated with family. New Years day watched the Rose Bowl USC take on Penn State disappointed with Penn St.’s performance but USC just intimidated they opponent to the third straight USC win in the rose bowl. I pretty much saw TV, a lot of games on; NBA, college ball(boys and girls), college football(my team made it to the championship-Oklahoma Sooners but lost to the Gators).
