Does anyone have particular data questions they would ask of start data
from 2010-present for national meets? For instance, the attendance by age over time, differences in age profile at each type of meet, probability of someone coming to a second event given a meet format, popularity of each meet format?
As I look back on my transition from Boston to Toronto, I lived a bit of an ascetic lifestyle during the transition. It was largely glorious, and while there were occasional moments when I wanted some possession that was in storage (e.g. comforter, a book, DSLR, Arduino, glass cookware), many of my possessions seem superfluous to daily life. My most useful possessions in daily life are my laptop, clothing+hygiene, transportation (car, bike), and to my surprise, my trusty 600 ml Contigo coffee cup
. I use it daily to drink coffee, tea, and water, and it is glorious. I carry the little guy basically everywhere with my laptop and lab notebook, and its use has saved a great many disposable coffee cups from the trash.
