Spring Break!!!

Friday…

Friday I went to school as usual. This was the last day of school before spring break so it went by really fast. I was supposed to have volleyball practice after school, but it got cancelled for no reason. I ended up going to the skatepark after school. I skated till dark with my friend Ryo and when I got tired my mom came to pick me up. When I got home I played video games and ate dinner with my family. After dinner I went to bed because I was tired.

Saturday…

I woke up early at eight o’clock because I made plans to play volleyball with my friends at East Beach. When I got to East Beach I met up with my friends Charlie, Jack, and Ethan. We all are on the same volleyball team and want to practice over break because there are no official practices. We played from 8:30 in the morning to 12:00 in the afternoon. We got very hungry so we decided to call it a day and go get lunch. After getting lunch we all split up and went on with the rest of our day. I went to the skatepark and when I arrived I met up with Ryo again. We skated all day and had a lot of fun. I went home at five o’clock in the evening and went to the beach to take pictures. I took some pictures at Thousand Steps Beach near my house and got some cool ones. I then went home and went to bed.

Sunday…

The next morning I woke up and got a text from my friend Luna asking me to go a private skatepark in Goleta. Its called The Orchid and you can only get in if you know people and Luna knows the owner. I got dropped off at her house and we drove there. When we got there we skated the halfpipe outside. It’s a really nice halfpipe and it’s really fun to skate. We skated for an hour before it began to get hot. We then went and skated the indoor skatepark for the rest of the day. It was really fun and I learned a lot of new tricks. At night Luna, Luna’s dad, and I walked down to the beach and I took some pictures of the stars. There is very little light pollution at The Orchid and its very good for star pictures. I got really nice ones and after we drove home. When I got home I ate and watched T.V. with my family and went to bed. It was a great weekend. Always have fun by doing what you love.

A weekend of photography and hanging out with friends.

Friday…

Had a great week at the sophomore retreat in Sequoia National Park. There was a lot of snow and it was really fun snowboarding and hanging out with all the other sophomores. We left the Montecito Lodge where we were staying at 12:15. The drive back was five hours, but didn’t feel that long. It went by really fast because I played on my phone the whole time with Charlie and Chase. We didn’t drive back on the Santa Barbara Air Bus, but instead we drove back with Pablo in his car. I got really car sick the first hour of the car ride because we went on a very windy road. I had to roll down my window and stick my head out for thirty minutes to relieve the sickness. After about two hours of driving we stopped at Chipotle and I got a burrito while Charlie and Chase went to Mcdonalds. After eating our food we got back in the car and drove the last three hours of the trip. We arrived back in Santa Barbara around seven o’clock in the evening. When I got home I got my camera and went down to Shoreline Park to take some pictures. After about twenty minutes I got tired and ended up going home to go to bed.

Saturday…

I woke up late on Saturday because I was very tired from the long journey home on Friday. When I woke up I went straight to the skatepark because I hadn’t skated for a week. I have volleyball practice every day during the week and don’t usually get to skate as much as I would like. I got to the skatepark around twelve o’clock and met up with my friend Ryo. We skated for two hours before I began to feel hungry. I ended up going to Blenders to get a smoothy on State Street. After I finished my Blenders I skated back to the skatepark to find out that it was very crowded. It was hard to skate so I skated the bowl where there were less people. I skated the bowl till dark with Ryo and I ended up chipping my board really bad. I got picked up after my board chipped and went home. When I got home I grabbed my camera and my parents dropped me off at the Courthouse. I have drove by the Courthouse at night and it’s very beautiful. I really wanted to get some picture there. It was really fun taking picture there because it was so beautiful and there was so much to take pictures of. I stayed there for an hour and then my mom picked me up. I really liked taking pictures there and I think I will go back soon. What a great day.

Sunday…

I woke up at ten o’clock and got up right away. I took a shower, got dressed, ate, and brushed my teeth. After getting ready I put my skateboard in the car and we drove to church. When we arrived at church we were ten minutes late so we ended up missing singing. We found our seats and followed along with the pastor. After church I went to the skatepark and skate park all day. I skated with Ryo and my friend Anthony. Anthony and I got hungry around twelve o’clock and ended up going to Chipotle for lunch. After we skated back to the skatepark and skated till dark. It was a great weekend and I can’t wait to have more like it. Remember to always make the most of your weekend by doing what you desire.

More Volleyball, Photography, and Skating

Friday…

I woke up and went to school as always. After school ended I had volleyball practice from 2 to 4:30. After practice ended my friends Chase and Luke wanted to come over my house and hang out. I asked my mom and she ended up saying no because she was sick and my dad just got home from a business trip. Luke ended up going with Chase to his house and I went home to my house. When I got home walked to the living room and laid on the couch. I ended up playing Skate 3 on my Playstation for 1 hour because I was very tired. I then got a text from Luke that said he was at my house with Chase. I didn’t believe him, but I went outside in curiosity. When I got outside I saw Luke and Chase and I ended up hanging out with them. We walked to Thousand Steps Beach and I took some pictures and then we walked home. When we got back to my house, we got in Chase’s car and drove to Mesa Burger. We had a great meal and after Chase dropped me off at home around 8:00. I ended up going to bed at 8:30 because I had a volleyball tournament in Simi Valley the next day. What a great day.

 

Saturday…

   My dad woke me up at 5:00 in the morning because I had to be at the flagpole at Santa Barbara High School at 5:30. I drove with Charlie and Luke to the tournament. Our tournament started at 7:00 and we had to leave right away to make it to Simi Valley on time. We ended up stopping at a Starbucks and getting breakfast. When we arrived in Simi Valley it was very cold. We walked into the gym and got right into our first game against Simi Valley. We ended up tying one game to one game since the first matches in pool play didn’t go to third game. The next game we played Laguna Beach and ended up winning both sets. After, we played Arroyo Grande and ended up winning the first match of the set and losing the second. We had the second most wins in our pool which meant we were moving up to the gold division. In the gold division it’s single elimination so if you lose your out of the tournament. We played Royale and they had won their pool with the most wins. We were really hyped up and wanted to win. We ended up winning both sets and didn’t need to go to a third game. We were really excited and since we beat Royale we were moved up into the semi-finals. We played West Lake in the semi-final and ended up winning the first set and losing the second. In the third set we lost 16-14 which was very sad since we were winning the entire set. We got fourth in the tournament which was really good for us since we just started playing volleyball together as a team. After the tournament ended we stopped a In-N-Out and got burgers. We then drove home and ended up arriving at home around 8:00 at night. I was very tired when I got home so I took a shower, brushed my teeth, and went to bed. It was a great day of volleyball.

 

Sunday…

I woke up at 10:00 in the morning. We couldn’t go to church because my mom had to pick my sister up from her friend Emma’s house. We ended up watching church at home since they broadcast it live on their website. After church ended I skated down to the skatepark and met up with my friends Ryo, Bernardo, and Steven. We skated for two hours and then Steven and I went to State Street to get lunch. We got Chipotle and after I got a text from my dad telling me he was picking me up. I had to go to my Grandma’s 72 year birthday dinner a Cadario. I went home, showered, got dressed in nice clothes, and drove to Cadario with my family. The food was really good and after we got home, I grabbed my camera and went to the beach. I took some ok pictures of the sunset and got a good star picture in the dark. When I got home I finished my homework and went to bed. It was a great weekend and remember to always make the most of your weekends by doing what you love.

A weekend filled with volleyball and photography!

Friday…

I went to school on Friday, like always. After school I had volleyball practice which ended up going an hour over, in preparation for our tournament on Saturday. After practice I went to the beach to take some pictures because the sunset looked very beautiful. I stayed there for an hour and watch the sun sent into the horizon. It was very beautiful and I only could take photos with my iPhone because my camera battery was dead. After the sunset I walked home and had dinner with my family. I felt really tired after dinner so I went to bed at eight o’clock. I had to wake up at five o’clock the next morning to go to a all day volleyball tournament in Valencia.

Saturday…

I woke up at five o’clock in the morning and I was really tired. My dad dropped me off at the MAD Academy because our team was meeting there. When I arrived I got in Elliot Bettles car and we got on the road to Valencia. Elliot and I were very hungry and hadn’t eaten breakfast, so we stopped at Mcdonalds and got egg mcmuffins. We then got back on the road and I put in my headphones and fell asleep listening to Coldplay’s first album “Parachutes.” When we arrived in Valencia it was seven o’clock and very cold. We walked into the gym and were surprised how many teams there were. We saw San Marcos, Mira Costa, Valencia, Royale, etc… After we warmed up had are first game against Royale and ended up going to a third game. I served eight points in a row and ended up helping are team win. The next game we played San Marcos and we ended up losing both the games to them. After that game we had a break and our team ate lunch together and we all hung out. After about an hour of relaxing we had to play another game against Valencia and we won. Since we lost to San Marcos we got dropped to the lower division. After meaningless games in the lower division we ended up getting 9th out of 15 teams. Although this wasn’t the result we wanted it was our first tournament together and we knew we had many more to come. After a long drive home, we ended up getting home at around five o’clock and I went down to the train tracks near my house to take some pictures. After about twenty minutes I felt tired and went to bed. What a great day.

Sunday…

I woke up late on Sunday because I was tired from my tournament. When I woke up I went to church with my parents and then I went to the skatepark. I skated alone for about two hours because none of my friends were there. My friend Chase texted me and said he was near by and was wondering if he could stop in and say hi. When he arrived we ended up going to Habit and then we wanted to go play beach volleyball. We called up my friends Charlie and Luke and we all met at East Beach. We played volleyball till dark and we were all very tired. I got home at six o’clock and ended up going to the harbor to take some more pictures. I got a really good picture and had an amazing weekend. Always have fun on your time off from school.

 

Weekend With Friends

Friday…

Finally finished another week of school. It was only a four day week so it flew by really fast. After school I had volleyball practice which took up the rest of my day. I couldn’t skate after since practice ended at 5:00 so I ended up going home and laying in bed.

 

Saturday…

I woke up at 8:00 and laid in bed for a while. I had to get up because I had a volleyball scrimmage at 9:15. After getting ready my mom drove me to Santa Barbara High School and dropped me off. We played a lot of volleyball and ended up winning three out of our four games. It was good to know that our team was really beginning to flow together. After my scrimmage ended I skated down to the skatepark from the high school which took about fifteen minutes. When I arrived I met up with my friends Ryo and Bernardo. I skated till around 4:00 and my friend Bernardo ended up coming to my house to sleepover. We arrived at my house at 4:15 and we decided to go take some pictures at Thousand Steps Beach. I live right next to it, so we got our cameras and walked to the beach. We took picture for about an hour until it got dark and then we walked back to my house. My mom then drove us down to the harbor to take some more picture for about an hour. We ended up leaving after an hour because we had skated all day and we were very tired and hungry. When we got home we ate dinner and played video games till 10:00 and then we went to bed.

Sunday…

We woke up on Sunday and my mom said we were going to church so I got ready. We drove to church with our skateboards in the car. Church lasts about an hour and is very close to the skatepark, so after Bernardo and I skated to the skatepark from church. We arrived and I skated the bowl for a long time and learned some new stuff and then my friend Charlie showed up. We skated together and it was really fun. Charlie has a blog to and it’s called Daquan VS The World and he asked me to come over and help him with it. I ended up leaving the skatepark and went to Charlie’s house and we took some pictures for his blog. He also just got a new baby German Shepherd and he is so cute, so we played with him in the yard for a while. Later we went to the YMCA to play volleyball for two hours and after my mom picked me up with some food. She got me a noodle dish from the Noodle Bar at the Public Market. It was amazing and probably one of the best noodle dishes I have had in awhile. After eating I was very tired and ended up going to bed at 9:00. What a great weekend! Always make the most of your weekends and try to relieve all your stress by doing something you love.
