basketball and freezing

like the name of this post, i want to talk about basketball and freezing.  they are not related topics, just two things that have affected my week.

basketball: i had asked the bball coach at the high school if i could practice with the team.  i wanted to have some extra bonding time with the students, as well as get to play my beloved game of roundball.  unfortunately, i forgot just how much running you do in high school basketball.  i practiced on tuesday, was too sore to practice on wednesday or thursday, and then when i was ready for friday, i found out that they weren’t practicing and only “training.”  “training” = running.  A LOT.  so i skipped out!  i guess i’ll stick to my usual 3-on-3 games on sunday nights.

freezing: it’s freezing in japan.  not literally, yet.  but it got down to about 3 degrees C, which is about 37 degrees F.  that means it’s very soon going to dip below freezing temperatures.  living in southern california my whole life has been both a blessing and a curse.  it’s a blessing cuz the weather is nice all year long!  it never deviates from between 50-85.  i mean, it gets kinda cold and kinda hot, but always a more moderate version of what else is out there.  it’s awesome if you stay there forever.  unfortunately, i’m not in socal.  i am in japan where the temperature range is a bit larger (20-105), and i’m in a more temperate region of japan…  long story short, i may not be the coldest person on the planet, but i’m the coldest i’ve ever been.  gonna try and buy a jacket tomorrow…
