The game was hard last night. It was our first game of the season, and I didn’t get put in much. I was very disappointed, but the coach told us that it is not about how much time you played, it is about the effort you put in. I am still very upset, but I just keep telling myself tonight is a new game. I learned that seventh grade is much different from sixth grade basketball, and every one does not get the same amount of playing time. I know now to try harder in practice, and I could be the one playing the whole game.
