Happy New Year! Also, 365 Challenge!
|My first contribution to this challenge: a photo of today's moon!|
After reading several blogs in which they do a photo-a-day challenge, I've decided to take a shot at it for 2015. I already take several photos a day with my phone, but I've thought about it and the real challenge for me will be to use my actual camera. It's nothing fancy, just a point and shoot. It takes great pictures, though, and the macro capabilities are a nice option that I just don't have with my phone camera. Not to mention that it captures light way better, and I can actually zoom out enough to take decent pictures of the moon.
I look forward to doing this in the coming year, and I won't beat myself up if I miss a day. It's all about the experience!
Overall, I had a great New Year's Eve. I let Lilah stay up a few hours past her bedtime, and we built a pretty awesome train track set-up. After she went to sleep, my family and a few of my sister's friends came over. We proceeded to indulge in lots of mixed drinks while playing the Pirate version of the card game Munchkin. I had never played Munchkin before, but it was time I learned since Cameron's family got me the Zombie Munchkin game for Christmas.
Do you ever have a hard time catching on when it comes to how to play a game? I normally learn best through example or even doing it myself, but I was completely lost. It didn't help that I had had more than a few shots of delicious strawberry creme alcohol (I'm a lightweight and also hardly drink). I was pretty frustrated for my lack of understanding, but it was comforted by snack sized Kit-Kats and a great playlist that my sister made. (Everything from Jill Scott to Neil Sedaka was on there.) It ended up becoming a three hour game that last pasted midnight. I passed out sometime after that. Oh, and I also started playing Guild Wars 2! (But more on that later.)
Munchkin made more sense to me this morning when I was drinking coffee and reading the actual page of instructions. The drunken "house rules" version kind of left me in the dust. Now that I have a better understanding of how the game works, I will play the Zombie version next!
How did your New Year's Eve go?
