As it’s the end of the year, it’s time for me to reflect on some of the changes I’ve made since August.
Of course, the biggest change is that I no longer work as the administrator, nor do I coach for the training center that I previously mentioned. This parting was my decision, as bigger things were coming my way and my schedule didn’t allow it anymore. This isn’t a bitter decision and I wish the training center the best. They are, after all, the ones that started me on the path that I am on now in archery.
While we’re on the topic of archery, that has also taken a back seat in the grand scheme of things. I no longer spend most of my time at the range training, but instead have set up a ‘home range’ with a bale at 3 meters. After outdoor season, I made it a point to go back to basics and work on form, and this was the best way to do that. With that, I also bought myself a new setup, with the Hoyt Faktor HP riser, Formula 720 limbs, Axcel sight, Shrewd aperture and Beiter plunger. This is the setup I am probably going to be shooting for a long long time, and I absolutely love it. It’s been a few months but I still don’t have a name for it. I might do a separate post later about the details of it just because I love looking back on these and reminiscing.
The second big change, is my transportation. I don’t ride the bus at all. I either drive myself, or I stay after school until someone can pick me up. Driving is so nice, I can leave immediately afterschool and go home before 5. The only problem is that it takes quite a toll on me. I often don’t get enough sleep to safely drive so that doesn’t happen very often.
These two factors are the biggest changes since the beginning of the school year. I simply don’t have the time now to do it all, and I’m content with what I have now.
