Is when I first started hearing his name around the scene it was everyone was saying he was the most hyped man in pickleball he brings a little bit of I don't know what do we call it a little yeah I was gonna say Swagger but it's like a little all right what's up guys uh so this last weekend was it was pretty cool it's a.

Pretty big weekend for me uh it was the first time I played Ben johns but it was the best tournament I've had yet so that was really cool I had a midterm today at 2PM so I spent all day yesterday studying woke up early spent six hours straight just studying for this exam I'm a senior at the University of Chicago if you're unfamiliar with me but regarding.

Training for pickleball so basically I took yesterday off how to focus on studying you know anybody that says they don't have time they're just lying to themselves they spend an hour doing nothing they spend an hour talking to a friend sure you know social life is very important but like you may get to that point in your life where what you're.

Doing with your life is more important there's a great quote that I heard uh Mike Tyson say recently if you're a friend to everybody you're an enemy to yourself at the end of the day you got to put yourself first foreign when I go to like train you should be.

Focusing on one thing I've heard many people say it before but it's just so true if it's right before a tournament however it's okay to it's okay to work everything but if you have a week or two or even a few days pick one thing and just get after it thank you.

already stops because they see like a girl in the field and then I think the girls like actually a ghost yep yep let's go get it so okay I'm just gonna I'm just gonna go uh I'm like a ghost okay we are starving we will not take this no.

Longer rather than starve your torment to set you on fire you bloody Rascals could not live if it were not for the poor you bloody Farmers could not live if it were not for the poor to them that keep you bloody Rascals alive but there will be a Slaughter made amongst you very soon are you angry because I'm selling the.

Farm what difference will it make none none everything will go on the same that's why I'm angry so it's blood all right guys since it's a quicker for me to memorize my lines and I thought I'm gonna go go to our gym right now and get 30 minutes of playing.

Tougher one no no no no these bloody Farmers could not live if it was not for the poor to some that keep you bloody Rascals alive but there will be a Slaughter and I would very much like to thank you just as I paint your peace I'm sorry you had to witness that that was uh not my best work see it is 3 15. this exam is.
