Oh yea...that used to fun! Fri, Apr 10, 2020
So I’m honestly having a love/hate relationship with this stay at home situation. I miss going out, like a lot...like A LOT! At the same time though, I’m finding myself doing different things that I used to enjoy doing, but stopped doing a long time ago. Why? I don’t know, I guess new hobbies take most of my free time now. For example, I started doing long distance runs again, which I haven’t done since the last race I was in 3-4 years ago. I also have a hefty collection of steel-book movies, so I’ve been re-watching some of my favorite movies. For example, I’ve re-watched 13 Hours: The Secret soldiers of Benghazi, Logan, Super Bad, The Pianist, Up, Interstellar, and a few others. It has become my thing to do during lunch or dinner, especially in the last few weekends that has been raining.
On the interactive side, I’m not a big fan of regular phone-calls or Facetiming, so I've taken a different approach. I own a XBOX One, but it has been gathering dust for a while now since I rarely use it anymore. Because we can’t really go out, my cousin, my brother, and some of my other friends decided to pick it back up. Saturday nights has become game night. Game night usually starts with someone sending a “CoD?” (Call of Duty) text in the group chat, and within 45 minutes a bunch of us are laughing our behinds off. The funny part is that since we are all new, we are usually laughing at each other because we all suck. You are rolling the dice when you are in our team, because there is a 50/50 chance you will die of accidental friendly fire. I guess it makes it more exciting as you don’t where the shots are coming from. The only video game skill that hasn't declined through out the years is our trash talk game. That, we have plenty of.
Playing with them has brought back some good old memories from when I was a kid. We are still all immature when we are together, the only difference is that now we are all playing from our own place, and are no longer crowded in one single room. Now that I’m thinking about it, it's kind of priceless.
