Fall Wrap-up

It’s time to say my last goodbye to the fall season as ~winter~ is officially here and the days are getting longer!

The fall 2014 season was a whirlwind of adventure. I’ve been thinking of writing a “fall wrap-up” for quite some time, but keep delaying because summarizing the entire season is an intimidating task. A lot has happened since August and I feel like a simple blog post won’t do it justice. Nevertheless, here are some highlights from my 2nd fall season reffing!

  • Item equipped: GoPro headcam
  • Quests completed:
    • Reffed over 30 games
    • Reffed in 3 states

I had some fun with numbers

Looking forward, I see a long road ahead. Even though the endgame is far away and the path to it is not always easy to find, my objective is crystal clear: Olympics 2020. With that dream mind, I pulled out my pen and paper in November and did some goal-setting and road mapping for this winter. That’s coming in the next update so please stay tuned!
