*it’s a pretty special day when not only did i ball at a court where i was the only non-black person and i wasn’t first referred to as Jeremy Lin, but also when i’m the first overall pick for 5v5. i’ve been balling at Ingleside all of my life, and i’ll remember this day more than any other. and then 3straight wins was the proverbial cherry on top.

this is incredibly accurate. this is why i consciously avoid the store whilst with other people.

"never will be forget."

one of the guys i work with in basketball posted a 9/11 photo in memoriam and the caption he wrote is, “never will be forget.” *facepalm* wow. 

“This life.
This night.
Your story.
Your pain.
Your hope.
It matters.
All of it matters.”
tis exactly what happened early this morning.

my cell group.

i text my guys church announcements, bible verses, and general greetings. but the only way i can truly can get them to respond is by saying, “soo you tryna ball though?”
