Everyday NhanSense: Each day, I will blog about something that comes to mind. My goal is to practice writing about my hobbies, my interests, my opinions and so forth.
Day 21’s Topic: Card games.
One of my favorite types of games out there is easily any card game. There is something intricate about cards that I just enjoy. A good card game gets my mind thinking from all kinds of angles, especially when deep and intricate strategies go beyond just the text on the cards.
The first card game I really got into was Yu-Gi-Oh! all the way back in middle school. I played the card game with my little brothers and friends. The game boomed in popularity for a few years, lingering into the end of my freshman year of high school before the fad died down (for the time, anyway.)
Needless to say, I’ll admit I was one of those dorky kids who liked playing some matches with other random kids in the library during lunch break. Yeah, I was one of those people during freshman year of high school. Big surprise, right?
For an overly shy guy like myself with severe social anxiety, card games did not force, but more like, they encouraged me to be sociable. The person who would clam up under normal circumstances suddenly became a lot more vocal and confident when it came to slamming cards down onto the table with confidence.
But as the Yu-Gi-Oh! card game started to fade away in its local player base around my area, I had to store my cards away for years and years. It wasn’t until just a year and a half ago, give or take, that I started to pick up the hobby again in the form of Magic: The Gathering. It’s the world’s most popular card game in the world for a reason, after all.
But for the past few weeks or so, I haven’t been up to playing card games of any variety. It’s such a shame because I do in fact enjoy the social outing in regards to playing with other people and meeting all kinds of new acquaintances.
I guess I have just been too bummed out for my own good, to the point where I just don’t feel motivated enough to take my deck to one of the few stores in town that hosts tournaments. I am by all means a strong player as well.
This deck pictured above is also really powerful as well. In a sense, I am doing my deck a disservice for not playing it for the past three weeks (and counting.) I love playing card games. I really want to play at my local tournaments, but it’s troublesome to participate all distracted like how I feel right now.
Alas, I am hoping this will all turn around in the short term. In the meantime, I am just hoping life deals me a decent hand to use for my circumstances.
Life, can I get a break? Pretty please?
