In my free time…
I obviously like to write, and I am in a constant state of feeling that I should do more of it. This blog is and has been my primary outlet for a while but I have some ideas on how to expand on my opportunities. Writing is something you have to practice to improve, just like any other skill, and luckily I enjoy it.
In my spare time I sometimes play video games (a favourite activity since childhood), predominantly on Playstation 4. I have a fondness for RPGs and multiplayer co-operative titles that I can play with friends (and occasionally strangers). I was a Nintendo kid in my youth, and grew up on a diet of Super Mario and The Legend of Zelda. Of late Elder Scrolls Online and Overwatch on Playstation 4 are my go-to games. In Elder Scrolls Online I play an Orc Nightblade, because Elder Scrolls Orcs are just adorable. In Overwatch my go-to characters include Mei, Soldier 76, Symmetra, and Mercy.
I've also taken up weight training, which I do two or three times a week. This has been good for my health, good for my concentration and staving off fatigue, and good for my self image. I don't like to talk about it much because I always found the people making endless weightlifting and fitness posts on social media to be super obnoxious and I'm uncomfortable with that kind of attention. It's something I really enjoy however and I've been making some progress; it's gratifying to see the physical changes.
