Enjoying my downtime

With rollerhockey over with, I took a week vacation and went down to Dallas last week.  In that time, I did very little to nothing when it came to photography or goaltending.  I needed a chance to get away from things for a while.  I did a lot of computer gaming.  Rome: Total War was a new game I got hooked on.  I did a little paintball, grilling, and otherwise did very little to nothing.  It was a good break from the norm.

When I stepped off the plane in Michigan on Sunday, I was ready to start playing hockey again.  My first practice is on Wednesday, and I have ice hockey on Thursday.  It will be my first time playing in almost a week and a half and my body is fully healed and ready to play.

Last season was a disappointing one for me.  In the last 2 sessions prior to the last one, I had won 3 trophies and many playoff bound teams.  I got nothing this last time around, and that empty feeling revisited me.  When I get that feeling, it just means I need to work harder.

I have Ferris State hockey to cover this weekend in a home and home game series with Michigan.  On top of that, I may be covering some of the Griffins games in the next few weeks.

  1. Dallas.. a great place to visit, but it’s always good to get back home (that comes from a native Texan)

    I hope Ferris State can turn it around.

    In the meantime, what about those Buckeyes!

  2. Ferris being 1-5 right now with their only win on the second night of their Bemidji State series does not fill me with hope. =)

  3. This team is better than their record. In Big Rapids, anything can happen as evidenced in the past. This is why Michigan has an under .500 record when playing games at Ferris.

  4. Ah yes! Ohio State! They are playing very well. Speaking of which I have photos of Ohio State vrs Ferris State that I still haven’t posted yet. I have to get on the ball on this. 🙂

    I will let you know when I post them. 🙂
