day 2531 – hunter life

i’ve never been a gamer all my life, but playing games has been quite a stress relieving past time since covid times. i bought a few more games during the steam summer sale so i could play and chill with my friends. we’ve been exploring a lot of the hunting game and we’re mesmerized by how beautiful the graphics are. learning the true life of a hunter and realizing it’s a really hard job. i definitely lack the gaming experience so my gun needs a lot of work

day 2455 – catan expansion

what i can do within the house is quite limited. at times i feel bad letting the days go by not having been productive. i’ve never been a gamer, but playing on steam is a viable option. i’m now very addicted to both star chef and settlers of catan, but still have yet to get hooked on sims. staying inside tonight playing the catan expansion – cities and knights. this expansion is interesting in a way where you have to play both an individual game and team game

day 2350 – nacho business

getting my new nacho jersey after two and a half months out of the nachos lineup and first game since we’ve been tiered down. this will be shortest bench of the season of only nine skaters, so we went with six forwards and three defense. rolling three defense was tough, we ran out of gas by the end of the game. despite the short bench, it was really fun and enjoyable now that we’re in a suitable tier

day 2349 – sushi go party

picked up my first game from the christmas shopping tonight but still waiting on cranium. a number of friends group have been on a board games tear recently. i’m ready to whip out my sushi go party in the next board game night this month. i also want to teach my parents how to play this game because i think they’ll enjoy it. i’ll gradually add a few more to my board games collection

day 2347 – exposure bubbles

six days into the new year is earlier than i’d like to break the bubble tea streak. since i was having the first of the year, i might as well go for their top pick – exposure supreme milk tea. it was premium milk tea loaded with pearls and pudding. at least i can justify it by having burned some calories prior to the enjoyment. hopefully i’ll last much longer without breaking the fast food streak

day 2345 – hockey rust

making my first squirtle appearance since the many damages that started in october. the rust on the ice was real and it didn’t help that we’ve been tiered up. the score was very lopsided even though my team got many shots of goal. my line had plenty of good chances, but couldn’t bury any. after gearing off, i rushed back to flightclub for board games night. i didn’t stay until the end, but even then it was already past 2am and i’ve been up for close to twenty one hours

day 2235 – castle fun park

we made a detour to abbotsford on our way home from harrison hot springs. first time going to castle fun park. naturally our first stop was at the hockey accuracy game. we then hit up the throwing mound, batting cage, and dragon punch before settling for the less strenuous arcade games. i did a tornado kick and it may have caused some technical difficulties because the target didn’t retract after that. we spent almost three hours playing; it felt like pladium all over again

day 2234 – harrison weekend

booked it out to harrison hot springs after killarney. this the largest hotel suite i’ve ever seen and the place the shower squad is staying at for jax’s stag part one. this place was chosen for its full kitchenette so we could have a taco night. we stayed up plenty late playing tons of drinking card games. i never expected that we’ll get much sleep tonight, but i just don’t want a hangover tomorrow

day 2207 – espr playoff

team espr at the riverway field bright and early for the softball playoffs. it wasn’t the playoff result we wanted, but we had a really fun season, my fourth with this team. each person took many strides throughout and proved that we could contend with teams from the top of tier c. for me, it was switching from first base to hold down the fort at third base. the captains handed out team awards this year; i won the comeback player of the year after missing some games due to injuries. but what i least expected and was winning the female mvp of this season

day 2180 – three bag

left my jersey in the wash, but at least i found a shirt to wear. first time i’m fielding on the right side of the diamond at third base. i was ready to take some balls off the body because the ball really kicks up after a bouncing on gravel. ended the night with only two bruises, one on the bicep and one on the stomach. i haven’t figured out how to take high balls off the backhand but i did made some pretty good stops and threw out two runners at first base. the team played really well defensively considering we were playing opponents a tier above
