I went to school and then went to a little bit of practice then went home. I hung out for a while then went to do community service. After community service, I biked home then made a smoothie and watched some Netflix. I haven’t been watching Dexter as much as I used to and now I am watching a show called Steven Universe because my friend Carter has been begging me to watch it for a few months.
This was pretty much my day and I didn’t do much for the rest.
Today I am going to skate. I texted my friend Christian and made plans to skate later in the day.
I got out of bed and made some breakfast. I cooked some potato’s, eggs, a bagel and a smoothie. In this smoothie, I put in strawberries, acai, banana, pineapple, mango, kale, spinach, honey, yogurt, orange juice, almond milk, chia seeds and some lemon juice. A pretty big breakfast.
I went into my backyard and decided to sell a surfboard that I used to ride when I was in like 6th grade. I took some pictures then posted it on craigslist.
It’s a Channel Islands Fred Rubble and is 5’6″.
Comment below if you are interested in buying.
I then went inside and saw that the paper that I ordered has been delivered.
Pretty cool stuff.
I hung out in my living room and read some books.
This was one of the books that I read. It was a photo book with pictures from this photographer named Stoner Ron. He is a photographer from the 70s and shoots many surf photos. This book was pretty cool.
I had some lunch with my dad and then went to the skatepark to meet up with Christian.
The moment I got there, I regretted going because it was so windy. Christian was still skating but I just decided to take some pictures and hangout.
I got picked up around 5 and went home. I watched some more Stevens Universe then went to bed.
Pretty cool day.
I guess I’ll skate again today. I went to the skatepark and met up with my friends Will and Christian. Christian left when I got there to get some lunch with his 7th grade scooter friends. Will and I kept skating but soon got exhausted from the heat and had to sit down for a bit.
We skated over to Rusty’s to get some lunch with Merrick and Eric.
I got picked up after then went home. Then my dad and I went to Trader Joe’s to do some grocery shopping. We got some meat and some buns to make a burger later.
We went home and set up the barbecue and started cooking.
We ate then went to bed.
This weekend was pretty mellow, comment below what you did.
I woke up at 6:30, ate a banana, got in the car, and drove to school.
We got into the bus at 7:20ish and left the school around 8:00.
It was a pretty long drive and we stopped to get some lunch around noon.
We got to Kings Canyon around 2.
We all hung out in the parking lot for a while and then went to get out rooms. I roomed with Cody, Matt and Josh. We all settled in and then went for a little walk around the lake. During this walk, we all had a small snowball fight halfway through the walk.
I got nailed in the face 2 times by Cody.
The first day was pretty mellow. After the walk we all had a little bit of freetime so my friends and I went to inner tube at a hill nearby.
We had fun and came back and drank some hot chocolate and played ping pong. Around 7:00 I got a super bad headache so I took a little nap in my room while everyone else was in the jacuzzi. Around 8 we all met up on the first floor to do some team building activities.
At this point, my head was a little bit better but still hurt.
We all went upstairs to sleep around 9:30. Surprisingly it was’t cold at all.
Overall the first day was a really good day.
Day 2 of Kings Canyon!
I woke up at around 7:00 and took a shower. It looked sunny outside and I was excited for my day.
I walked down stairs around 8:00 and saw that everyone was already eating breakfast. So I got some eggs and pancakes and sat down next to Lamont, Jack, Nico and Bram. Later, Josh, Cody and Matt joined us.
Dan had a little talk in the beginning and told us that we were going for another walk.
This walk was a little longer than yesterday’s but was more fun. Everyone started sliding on their stomachs down hills like penguins.
Most of us all went off the trail and explored a little bit around the trail. We found a spot to do some jumps off of and my friend Carter did a front flip off of it.
We all stopped walking after about a mile and decided to hangout there for a while. We had another snow ball fight but this time more serious. It was all fun and games until my friend Charlie threw a huge clump of ice on my back. It hurt pretty bad so I just sat down and talked with other people.
We all walked back and had some lunch. After lunch, everybody decided to go snowboarding so I went with them. I’ve never been snowboarding.
We all borrowed some gear and walked around to find some cool spots. Charlie, Christian, Sharp, Kai and I found a pretty decent hill. Charlie started building a ramp while we all strapped our feet in.
I first went down the hill and fell many times. It was a lot harder than I expected and I thought that it would be similar tp skateboarding and surfing. Guess not.
After about an hour I was kinda over it so decided to go change my socks and grab my GoPro.
On the first day, I did’nt get many cool videos.
My friend Solomon fell pretty hard.
We finsihed snowboarding around 4:30 and decided to put our feet in the jacuzzi.
We hungout in there until dinner. I got out a little early so that I can shower and change before dinner.
For dinner we had pasta and I hangout with some of my friends. After dinner everyone went to the jacuzzi but I decided to stay inside and hangout with Lamont, Brianna and Walker. Walker and Lamont taught me a little bit about guitar.
Later around 8:30 we all gathered up and had another group activity. But this time a lot more serious that last nights.
I learned a lot about my classmates through these activities and I thought that it was a good experience.
We all got cereal after and went to bed.
Another good day
I woke up extremely sore. ugh
I took a ghetto shower and brushed my teeth and got into warm clothes. For those of you who are not familiar with “ghetto showers”, it means to dunk your head under the sink and get your hair wet. Comment below if you have ever taken a ghetto shower.
I went downstairs and had some breakfast. There was green eggs and I was really confused for a while but later realized that it was St. Patricks day. Dan had a little talk and told us that we had free time until 11 so my friends and I decided to go snowboarding again. I decided not to snowboard today and instead just bring a sled up and film.
I hit the jump a couple times on the sled but it started hurting more and more so I decided to stop. The jump from yesterday was a lot icier today so we decided not to use it today. So we all walked a little bit up hill to another nice area and built another jump there. This new jump was a little more scarier because there was a tree right next to the landing.
Everyone was very encouraging and supportive of each other, and it was a good time.
We all finished snowboarding around 10:30 and headed back to the lodge to pack up. I put my feet under the heater for about 10 minutes.
Around 12 we made sandwiches and got into the bus.
It was sad to leave and the trip felt really short, but I was also looking forward to the warmer weather.
The bus ride back was a lot more quiet than the bus ride up since everyone was either asleep or too tired to talk.
We got back to SB around 6 and I got picked up.
It was a really nice trip and gave me some time to set my mind off school work and other things. I got to bond closer with friends and also got to meet many new ones. Overall I thought it was a really good trip and I’m glad that I got the opportunity to go on it.
I woke up and couldn’t feel my legs.
I went to the skatepark later and just hangout with my friends and talked about the trip.
I didn’t skate much and instead just took some pictures on my phone.
I slept over at Tanner’s house with Jorge.
We didn’t do much, just played some video games and talked about conspiracy theories.
Pretty normal sleepover.
Woke up around 7 and rode our bikes down to Eller’s donuts to get some breakfast. Eller’s is my favorite donut shop in Santa Barbara.
I went home and didn’t do anything for the rest of the day.
I just read some books and watched some netflix.
Overall was a pretty mellow day.
I posted a video with the footage I got in Kings Canyon on my instagram @ryo_nish

Today I went to school. AP World was kinda hard because we had to write a DBQ essay.
For lunch I had a sandwhich then I headed to the pool.
Today is our first swim competition for high school. I walked into the pool and saw a list on the wall on the events that we are swimming. I am gonna swim a 6×50 freestyle relay and a 4×50 breastroke relay.
I was pretty happy with the events that I was swimming since they are two of my favorite strokes.
Around 2, I had my first event. My team was RJ, Quinn, Jose, Mac and Chase. We went against DP, SM, Buena and Ventura and ended up getting 3rd place.
Right after that event, I had my next one. This one kinda sucked because when I finished my first 25m, I smacked my face on the wall. It’s okay though because we got 2nd place.
In the beginning I was really nervous, but in the end, I thought it was really fun. We are going against Thousand Oaks next Wednesday.
JV boys ended up tying 1st place with another school.
Looking forward to the next comp.
After the swim meet I went over to my friend, Bens house.
We just hungout and listened to music and later, Tanner came over.
Later that day, we met up with our friends Lily, Haley, Caitlyn and Keely. We all went to San Roque to another friends house which was kinda fun but I was really tired.
We got picked up around 10 by Ben’s sister and went home.
I was exhausted at this point and decided to go to bed.
Overall a good day
We woke up around 8 and listened to “Box of Rain” by the Grateful Dead on Ben’s record player.
We got up and Ben made us a smoothie and we hung out in his living room for a while. Comment below if you like smoothies. Ben played the guitar and Tanner and I hung out with his cats, Harry and Tiki.
It was a really nice morning and the weather was perfect.
I got picked up by my dad around 10:30 and we went to go wash my dog at Hendry’s beach.
We got donuts at Eller’s and went home.
I decided to work on my DBQ essay so I made my self a sandwhich and started writing.
A hour went by and I finished most of the essay but I decided to do the rest on Monday night.
Around 2, I decided to go to the skatepark and hangout with my friend Moses.
It was a pretty good skate day until I fell really hard.
I decided to go home and sleep.
Today I woke up at 6 and drove to starbucks to meet up with my friend Kai and Colton.
Today I have 3 scrimmages down in Agoura.
We drove down and got there around 9. No one was there so we just walked around and sat by the pool. Around 9:30 everyone started showing up. We got in at 10:00 and started warming up. We had our first scrimmage against LA Premier C team. It was a pretty fun game and we ended up winning 11-2.
We had our next game in an hour. It was really cold while waiting. We played LA Premier A team and they were a lot better than the first team. We lost 6-9. Finally we played the Titans, and lost again 6-9.
Overall it was a really fun day and we got the Habit afterwards. I got dropped off by Kai’s dad and took a nap. I was exhausted.
Later that night I watched netflix and went to bed.
Today we have a swim meet against Thousand Oaks!
I was pretty excited since it was really hot out. I walked into the pool deck and walked up to the list of the events.
200 Medley Relay
200 Freestyle Relay
100 Breast Stroke
UGHHHHHHH. 200 free will kill me.
My first event, I swam a 50 fly in the relay and it wasn’t too bad. We ended up getting 3rd place. Then came the 200 free…
I stepped up on the block and heard the referee say “On your marks, get set..”
I dove in and started swimming, the first 100 wasn’t too bad but then on the 3rd 50 I started getting really tired.
By the time I finished I felt like a dead fish.
I got out the pool and collapsed onto a bench.
Worst thing ever.
I had about an hour break and then my next event was a 50 free in the 200 Freestyle Relay.
It wasn’t too bad.
Finally about 20 minutes later, I had my last event, the 100 breast stroke. I think I got like 4th place.
Overall it was a really fun swim meet but I got really tired.
