Macky used to dislike physical games like basketball. When he was still small, he would only play chess and other board games. When I asked him why he would answer that basketball is a tiresome sport and he don't want to get hurt inside the court.
Just about a year ago when he turned 11 years old, his preference changed. He wanted to prove that he is already a big boy thus playing basketball in the neighborhood has become his past time especially when he stopped schooling. Since he has become an "out of school kid" his activities are restricted and other privileges were suspended. He was not allowed to go out anytime he want and he needed to follow certain schedules set at home.
Though he was given limited time, Macky focused his "free time" playing basketball with friends in the neighborhood. When the class opened just recently, he joined the tryouts for Elementary Basketball Varsity. And with much luck and hard work, he was one of the students chosen to be a member of the school's basketball team.
His father and the rest of the family were happy and supportive about his new endeavor. Macky was very inspired to attend his scheduled practices and he was willing to sacrifice his "internet time" just to play basketball.
