the years in review

One of the benefits of using a Palm brand device for the past 5 years is the fact that my calendar has an archive of everything I’ve ever done. Sometimes I like to look back at my own personal “this day in history.”

August 19th:
2009 – Certified to referee high school soccer in Dover, DE
2008 – Catering a wedding at Irish Eyes in Lewes, DE
2007 – Got back from a Holiday Parade concert in Hackensack, NJ at 2:00am, then had a high school friends going away party at my Uncle Bob’s pool in Milton, DE. Played Risk late into the night (:
2006 – Ship of Fools (my old band) rehearsal/equipment load up/set up all day, played at a friend’s birthday party at a country club in Dover, DE.
2005 – I was boring that long ago, so there was nothing documented. Probably sleeping and working at Rita’s in Smyrna, DE. Or possibly at soccer pre-season practices.
Funsies (:

feeling grown up

I started refereeing soccer in 2004. It doesn’t really feel like that long ago, which is sort of scary. Following my most recent regional level match, our assessor told the other referees that they should look at me as the “senior referee” and do the things that I do. That is extremely strange to me. Another example of this is when a 30 year old girl tells you that you have a pretty cool (48 year old) dad. That is sort of strange and cool at the same time..weird.
