CURRENT STATUS

February 8, 2022 I cried today watching my team play. I was unable to participate because of my shoulder. I'm a player who wants to always be in the game.  It's a moment of adversity for me. I'm ready for the challenge. 

February 16. 2022 I woke up in the Ocean Reef Club. I was just in Montevideo, Uruguay. Polar opposite communities. If Montevideo is dirty, ORC is clean. My shoulder weirdly enough feels 10x better. I think of my experience in Montevideo. I've put more time into basketball than any player on the planet. I was born on the court. But I disrespected the basketball Gods early on in my career. They punished me and put me in basketball prison.

I've finally been released from basketball prison. Free at last. It's time to take my player to the appropriate stage and perform.

February 22, 2022 I find myself crying a lot lately.  I haven't expressed myself in such a way so consistently since I was 10 years old. It feels good. I think it's a healthy expression. As a player being productive is the most important. The personality of the player is something that draws in fans. This new crying thing is shaping my personality into something that makes me smile when I look into the mirror. I feel pure. 

March 1, 2022 I just had breakfast with a consultant from Munich here in Kitzbühel at the Grand Hotel. She's been a consult for four years at the firm and began asking me questions about basketball. I informed her I record everything I do. She mentioned I would be an easy client to work for because I keep the data. It's a moment of I knew it. Hahaha. We spoke about different things to maximise the potential of an athlete, and whose the right sponsor for a player. 

March 4, 2022 I just landed in Miami from Istanbul, Turkey. I'm having some deja vu. The last time i landed in the States from Istanbul I was triggered by this emotion by a conversation I had on the flight. That emotion triggered me to begin writing books. Since then I've written 30 books. I had a conversation on this flight that triggered me in a way. I wonder what I will do next.

March 8, 2022 I'm wearing Csillag, I feel like a Star. Sarah sits next to me as we rest our feet on the hardwood floor. It's a close game in the city that Naps. The Cavaliers gather in their huddle. Minutes earlier, I witness Rajon Rondo give instructions to JB. I asked Rondo the question, "Are you the coach?" . He smiled and immediately pointed at JB. I then laughed. But now, it's a close game in the city that Naps. Late game situation, and the Cavaliers have the ball. I catch eyes with Rondo. "Tween, tween, step back from 40!" insinuating this should be the play call for the Cavaliers to go for the win in Indianapolis. He replied, "What's that book you're reading?" . Fuck, I ended up looking down. Grabbing the book, and lifting it up for him to read the title. 

1-0 Rondo? I'm not sure. 

The Cavaliers won the game. 

:(

March 21, 2022 I feel like I look like the player I created all those years on FIFA.

March 30, 2022 I'm at the Ocean Reef Club. I think about the community. The members, equity and social. The guest. The workers. Everyone that makes up the reef. I went and shot some hoops today and thought to myself, " Stambi you've never shot a gun. At least not one you buy from the gun store. But you probably have the best gun on the reef. Does this mean I have the best gun in the world?". I see my arm, my hand, and my fingers as my gun. My basketball shot as my gun. I think I have the best gun in the world.

April 22, 2022 Friday 3:24am I just ate two plates of pasta. blah 

April 26, 2022 Tuesday 3:53pm Real Madrid vs Manchester City. An absolute show. It makes me feel like a kid, wanting to be out there on the pitch but dissapointed i'm not old enough or strong enough to participate. Holy fuck. I am old enough. I'm 6'5 , with muscle and speed. Let me go work out. 

June 13, 2022 Monday 7:35 I'm in between Towne & Ditch. I see a field goal, baseball helmet, soccer goal, all belongings to a child. I'm Indy. I smell sports. I feel competition all around. I'm not where I want to be, but I am a player. The best in the game. So today, I'm going to see if I can make a little magic. Attempt 1, here we go.

 

June 15, 2022 Wednesday 12:47 I've figured out the formula to build the best vehicle. The only question is can I fully build it in a month's time.  

June 26, 2022 Sunday 8:04 I listen to french music. I'm telling you. 5/10 I am listening to french music. Right now I'm listening to Aya nakamura - Plus Jamais (feat. Stormzy). Lee MG is my favorite french artist. He's from Lille. Oh yea, also. I have added three teams of interest to my interest list. The Charlotte Hornets. Paris Basketball Club. Detroit Pistons. I'm headed to the Carmel Dad's Club to watch Ron Rutland's son play some hoops. 

June 29, 2022 Wednesday 8:03 I look out the window I see the water. I'm reminded of all the tears I've cried. I'm reminded of all the people who have told me I don't have emotions. I'm reminded of my aol screename thefaucett. I'm reminded that the present is what matters. g2g.

August 7, 2022 I won a championship today.  Best day of the summer. 

August 9, 2022 10:57p.m.  I'm listening to a lot of Burna Boy. I just finished writing my new book. A couple edits. Add a book cover. And I'm releasing it by the end of the week. 

August 16, 2022 11:57a.m. I'm in Thessaloniki, the city I came in to the world. Lets play

August 20, 2022 12:29p.m. I just finished watching the national team of Greece comeback against Slovenia in 2007 in Madrid. It brought a tear to my eye. A team coming back in the final moments. Overcoming adversity and becoming victorious.

August 22, 2022 12:53a.m. Just vibe and stay disciplined.

August 28, 2022 2:36p.m. I've listened to the same song for the last hour. I've attempted to do the same thing in every city I've been the last year. I've been collecting the time for over 10,488 hours. I'm a master time keeper. They try to convince me of what happened, or what's happening but I keep all the data. I know who I am. I know where I am. But. at the same time, I know nothing at all.

September 21, 2022 8:06a.m. It's been awhile. A few things have happened. But maybe nothing at all. I've found a new library in Beverly Hills where I get all my books from. I found new art as well. I think my player is improving day by day. My mind is becoming sharper. My thoughts are becoming clearer. My orginization is becoming tighter. The balance of focus and dance is what I depend on.
