This is Takao's blog. I am studying Athetic Training at University of South Florida. New entry comes out everyday(hopefully). Am I ever going to have the day when I have a good command of English just like native- speakers? Hope the day will come to me....
Finally weekend is coming!! I can rest my brain and my body for a little bit. But actually by body are getting out of shape, so I am thinking to work out sometime in this weekend like resistance training or some Circuit training.
I hope my body gets back to high-school day's level. If I do say so myself, I had a good built when I had seriously played baseball.(Is OK?) But after being in college in Japan, especially after start drinking alcohols with my buddies, my body has been in decline (been decreasing? Been on a decline? How do you say here to make more sense??). What a wistful I am! (Natural to say??) I am still 23 and should have more muscular back and arms.
Anyway, since I came to United States that sometimes is called Sports power, I would like to start another new sports like tennis or golf which I can play with small number of people unlike baseball. I love it but it need at least 18 people to take place the game, so it's kind of difficult to take place the game or even just practicing. So I decided to challenge new sports! Tennis would be great. Golf also has attractions(is natural??), but playing it costs a little more than playing tennis. Well, I am hard to choose between the two now. Let's play both and chose after that!
Oh, I know there is no time to think about such a stupid stuff like the kind of sports I have never done yet. I just can try both! ha-ha. Anyway, I will try sometime in the near future. But now, I have to focus more on my assignments which are piled up ahead of me like a mountain....
Japanese Hon wo yondeimasu I am reading a book.
