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 2522 – catan-ing

it was important i pushed out some work today because all the scheduling needed to be set for next weekend. after hashing out the major components, i was in my backyard getting two tans going – catan and suntan. i felt bad that i was multitasking during the game early parts of the game, but it was not fun for me at the beginning. i trailed right from the get go, but somehow waited it out and caught up at fourteen points. too bad everyone gave up on the game because i feel like i could’ve pulled out the victory

day 2462 – zoom jackbox

girls doing a wednesday virtual game night playing jackbox party packs. we had to setup three consecutive zoom sessions because of the forty minute limit. hopefully we can use a different hosting platform next time so we don’t have to switch in and out in between games. gaming has taken over a lot of my free time, and it’ll likely continue through the duration of this covid quarantine

day 2431 – houseparty

downloaded houses party so we could still continue our monthly games night, but virtual games night this time because of social distancing. there’s only four games on this app but not going to complain since we found this for free. my favourite of the four was the chips and guac. it would be more fun if we had a few more players and i hope we do for next time

day 2404 – stick and puck

probably shouldn’t have gone to stick and puck, but it felt manageable with a mild ankle sprain. it’s not often i have the availablity in mid day so i joined the crew anyways. lots of space to practice with only seven people on the ice in total. got a chance to do some passing, worked a bit on my snapshot, learned some dangles and played a mini two on two shinny. it was fun with a bigger group out except i had no legs left by the time tricking class came around

day 2394 – regular game

the score wasn’t pretty but the game was very fun compared to last game when we played against a ridiculously dirty and physically dangerous team. it was also the last squirtle regular season game and playoffs begin with a one bye week. stayed after on the bench to take pictures and enjoy our lemon tea. ended up lingering for another hour before we got out of the change room. it’s been a while since i last stuck around with the team, maybe because i feel more comfortable with the people that were present

day 2393 – les miserables

my student invited me to watch her musical in my very own highschool. don’t get to step back into hamber very often, but going in as an alumni always has a special place for my heart and bring back so much memories. the musical was very well done and i’m impressed with all the talent of the highschool students. i wished the school would invest in upgrading the auditorium because i left the three us hour play with a sore back, butt and neck

day 2357 – snow day

all day the news was warning everyone to stay off the roads because cars and busses were getting stuck or sliding everywhere. i wasn’t about to risk my safety driving out in the horrid road conditions, especially without winter tires. good thing i got the laptop last week so i had the option to work remotely. i was sad i couldn’t even go to the gym. since the office called it a day at 2pm, i spontaneously ventured out in the snow. here’s me being optimistic runners would suffice; i totally did not expect the snow to be a foot deep and probably should have dressed warmer. i switched the boots and plowed around in the snow

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 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
