We did all sorts of **** today

- light spar
- knee spar
- 4 punch to 4 knee break clinch 1,2 dill thing

man i didn't feel a bit tired at all today. thats good.
I wasn't agressive at all sparring. thats bad.
I am frustrated about this ****. thats bad.
I get attitude with my trainer. thats bad.
he finaly says something back to me about it. thats bad.

I find that if i talk to myself for a min before i get in the ring it helps but still i do not want to hit my friends that i train with, especially without head protection.

i don't mind light spar BUT i do not attack durring light spar. durring NHB spar i do OK cause i attack. i cannot seem to get myself as agressive in light spar.

mabye its cause i get yelled at when i get agressive cause i'm "using my size to much" thats such ****! what am i supposed to do? i get yelled at when i don;t attack and yelled at when i do. so i'm ****ed either way.

it very agrivating!

Man fucin weekend. i'm 209 right now.

I worked this mornin and then went to the gym. WHY!? I dunno cause i'm ****in stupid.

I went to work at 5am. WHY THE **** WOULD I GO TO THE GYM AFTER THAT?!!?!?! I went in to do some cardio and bag work. but NO. some people don't wanna listen.

They want me to drill with another guy. No Prob i can handle drilling. THE DRILL IS REALLY ****IN SIMPLE Man 1 jab man 2 parry and leg kick. so i jab for 4 rounds and the ****ers is kickin me and i'm told GET THIS "don't block its just light contact" granted it wasn't hard contact but it sure wasn't light.

so when its my turn, it just supposed ot be jab and leg kick like before. BUT NO this asshat wants to throw a 1,2 leg kick with an elbow and a hook. THIS IS A DRILL NOT A ****IN SPARRING MATCH ASS HOLE!

Now i'm ****in tired. I've been up for over 6 hours already. and i'm empty inside. not to mention someon i do not like was in my ****in ear for a while prior to this.

so i'm all ****ed anyway. and this ******* is tryin to tee off the **** on my face in a ****in drill. and all i'm being told is "Ben, stay light, hold back, go to the left, kick left, keep moving. blah blah blah" now i cannot kick left for the last 2 weeks cause of an injury in my left foot. the coach KNOWS THIS and is still ****ing goin out of his ****in gord!

why don't people pay attention. why is it that the guy fighting in 5 days is taking 2nd place to a guy who won't fight for another couple months?

why the **** do i do this ****? there is no reason for me to get so pissed of fwith these ****ers. these *******s know i came in straight from work and verbally stated "i don't want to do this" so why now AFTER these drills do they get us in the ring and tel lthe other guy that WEARE ****IN SPARRING!


so now i got this **** face walkin around like he is hot **** thinkin he bested me while he didn't get an 1/8th of me even warming up

I have no interest in anyone around me.
I don;t want to talk to people near me
I don;t feel like trainin
I don't want to see anyone
i'm sick and tired.
i'm ****in flaming mad
i'm really really agitated
i can feel my blood pressure goin up
i really really really unhappy with 90% of my existance at the moment

i'm gonan og shove somethign sharp in a part of my body that bleeds
