An overwhelming summer filled with basketball, Netflix, and fortnite.
It’s not summer if your not having fun and living your best life-Unkown
what’s better than finishing a really good show? Finding an even better show. Over the summer watching Netflix was one of my go to moves. After I finished basketball workouts I was tired and I just watched Netflix until i fell asleep. That was until I finished Hawaii Five O. I was happy but I was also devastated because now I needed to find a new show. I spent days looking for a new show until I found naruto. Best show ever by far.This summer was not only a summer to remember but it was full of tedious basketball workouts, action-packed Netflix shows, and back pains from carrying my teammates in Fortnite.
Over the school year, when the Flash had finished, I was so useless and sad until I found Hawaii Five O Unfortunately I finished it so fast that by the start of summer I was left again without a show to watch. I asked everybody for recommendations, until I was finally told to watch a show called Naruto. When I noticed it was anime, first thing I thought, was there’s no way I’m gonna like this. The reason why I continued to watch it, was because my friend Will told me too. Turns out I love Naruto and it is without a doubt top three in my list of shows. Naruto is a Japanese manga series about a kid name Naruto Uzumaki, and adolescence ninja who searches for recognition from his peers and also dreams of becoming Hokage.
Over the summer I did two basketball workouts a day with my brothers and his friends. We usually started around ten, and ended at twelve. These workout were atrocious. I was leaving the courts everyday drenched with sweat. The second workouts were the best ones and they were from 9-12. These workouts I still left drenched, but they weren’t atrocious. The first workouts started with a suicide, then we jump right into handle work. BOOM BOOM BOOM SWITCH, BOOM BOOM BOOM MIDDLE. These drills were very tedious and I hated them so much. My hand was literally crying when we were done. The next drill we did was a shooting drill. Tween tween shot. You take five shots and you have to make two in a row to move on. This drill would’ve been way more fun if my hand wasn’t burning. The last thing we did was footwork. This drill was basically doing jump rope without the rope. By the end my legs and arms were killing me. To end the morning drill I did a suicide. The second workout was way more chill and it was just basically scrimmaging and king of the court with the other people.
Over the summer when I wasn’t playing basketball or watching netflix, I was playing Fortnite. I either played duos Wjruth, or squads with Harry, Cliff and some xbox players. Now in Fortnite, I’m known as a top dawg. I usually average about 5 kills a game and like 10 at most. Not gonna lie my teammates who played with me were trash. Over the summer me and Will used to grind all night. 9-12 taking dubs after dubs. He’s better than me at Fortnite, but that’s only because he’s an xbox player. Over the summer my best Fortnite highlights was when I absolutely merked Harry in playground. I’m talking about 14-7. It wasn’t even close. If you know Harry you know he was making a million excuses about how he wasn’t trying, but that didn’t matter because I had the screenshot, and this game will be remembered and sent into the history books. Another big fortnite moment over the summer was when Harry was on fire over the summer and had 15 kills with one player left. “He’s a noblet, sixteen kills on the way” Harry says.
“Your trash and he’s gonna kill you” i said. First shot went to the noob-80 damage to the head. Harry was stunned he had twenty health, and was panicking, but it was no use because before you know it Harry was dead. I swear I’ve never seen Harry rage so much. He turned of his iPad and got off of FaceTime so fast, I was shook. I tried messaging him but he just wasn’t responding. This game told me an important lesson which is to not judge a book by its cover.
Over the summer I always had something to do. Whether it was playing basketball, watching Netflix or playing fortnite, I was never bored. The best thing out of those three was definitely the basketball workouts because I knew I was getting better and I love basketball. This summer I think I really grew as a person in ways of leadership, and communication. I was way more active then I was last year and I got more accomplished which is good.
When in doubt never judge a book by its cover, and never ever quit because something is hard,
