Interviewer: What is the best moment of the day?
Victoria Jin: Getting into bed at night after a long day. The moment my head hits the pillow and I pull the cold sheets over me, - I’m in heaven.
I could not agree more.
“xx” ^ Such a go-to album. I listen to it when I’m working, driving, about to sleep, waking up, and to chill out before matches. I wish they dropped some new stuff. This album can’t last that long.
So I just watched an interview with Novak Djokovic by 60 Minutes. I kind of gained some respect for the guy. I knew he was a good guy at heart, but there was always this sort of arrogance that (I thought) he had. Now I realize it’s just a competitive drive. His rise to the top made me realize how humble he truly is. Go Nole!
The Morning Benders
ilovesoo: when they posted on their facebook page that this would be their last time posting on the page, we were all baffled! we all thought they were breaking up! turns out, we got trolled. the morning benders = POP ETC they changed their name. i don’t know why and i’m not interested as to why. i just don’t really like it, but it’s the same music, the same band. so i’m happy. ...

Rough start to the week. Found out I have an impingement in my shoulder. Another match tomorrow. Fuck.
Big match tomorrow. Pretty sure I’ll be playing a German exchange student. Side note: This team hasn’t lost a match in our district in eight years. However, this year is their weakest (lost about 7 seniors, only 2 returners), and this is my team’s strongest year… Who knows how it’ll turn out. I have a lot to think about on the two hour bus ride there.

Thoughts on Big John
Isner. Yesterday I wasn’t home and didn’t get to see the match between him and Nole; I just saw the score. Originally, I was kind of disappointed because I wanted to see another Nole / Fed / Rafa final. But after actually watching that last set, I think Isner really deserved it. Isner is the first American since James Blake (‘08) to take out the #1 rank on the tour… I...
Great day. Definitely the weather that made it awesome. Art festival + track meet + burgers + good laughs = best Saturday I’ve had in a long time. On a separate note, I need to start becoming a morning person. It won’t ever happen, unless I have something important planned like today. I save a lot of time, and there’s much more to do. Busy few days ahead. I’ll try to...
My right arm is decomposing. I really hope it’s not like xc season, with the recurring injuries and all. Icing every night, hopefully it gets better. Although we won today, it didn’t feel like a win. Our number 5 and 6 win on a consistent basis, and as #3 I’ve lost two matches in a row. They even said they don’t like the pressure, cause it sometimes comes down to them. I...
4-0 so far as a team this season. So hyped right now. I can either sleep well tonight, or I can’t due to all the hype. Next match on Friday at home! LET’S GOOOOO
Tendinitis in my wrist (that’s how you actually spell it), but new strings for my Radical MP. Everything balances out. I see what you’re doing there, God. Big match tomorrow… ICE + WRAP
Stringing is a pain. I love my racket / string combo to death, it’s just the strings fray way too early. I need to get more durable ones, without sacrificing power. I hate that mushy feeling you get, especially with poly / co poly strings. Oh well, getting Gamma Live Wire XP 16 strung on my racket (Head Youtek Radical MP) tomorrow. I really hope they’re a good fit. Edit: Turns out...
