Hey y’all, it’s Aaliyah Chavez.

I scored my 3,000th level in highschool final night time. I wanted 40 factors to get it, and earlier than the sport I informed myself, Oh I’m gonna maintain observe after the primary 2 factors. However then I ended up dropping observe. At halftime I requested my coach, Is it unhealthy for me to ask what number of factors I’ve? and he or she was like, You really solely want 7 extra! As soon as I hit that three to get me the three,000th level, I used to be so hyped and saying LET’S GOOO! I sat out a lot of the fourth, although, and actually, I in all probability may have gotten 50 if [Coach] didn’t sit me out. It’s all good although. My dad informed me if I bought 3,000 factors he’d get me Wingstop after the sport, which is my favourite meals. 

My life proper now could be just about simply eat, sleep and basketball. I’m in my junior yr, which began off a little bit troublesome for me as a result of we have been touring a lot for varsity ball, however it’s getting higher. Everybody says junior yr is the toughest yr and I see why now.

My favourite class is studying as a result of the trainer is fairly chill, and if we’d like assist she’s there to assist us, however my favourite topic is math as a result of I’m fairly good at it. I’m taking Algebra 2 proper now, however subsequent yr goes to be both calculus or pre-calc, which my coach really teaches. I feel I’d take it simply because she’s gonna be gone the identical days I’ll be gone when now we have to journey, however then on the similar time, I’m like, I don’t know if I would like my coach to be my trainer. 

It’s nonetheless the morning right here in Texas proper now, so I gotta go. My mother’s making bacon and egg breakfast burritos. I’m not that into cooking, however my dad and mom can—my mother made chili the opposite
night time, and my dad will get on the grill. I feel I’m just about going to only relax at residence for the weekend, after which for dinner tonight I feel we’re going to exit to Texas Roadhouse. It’s so good.

Catch you later!
