Free Time Activities (Part 1)
I am pretty sure that the Coronavirus outbreak has greatly changed the way we have fun and enjoy ourselves, especially now that most of us adhere to the directions and guidelines and #stayathome. I know it has already been quite difficult for me. I am an outgoing person and I normally love going out for a drink, walking around, and going to the cinema.
Nowadays though, with the situation being the way it is, I have radically changed my pass-time activities. What do I do? Well, mostly watch Netflix. I have found one or two nice series like “The End of The F***ing World”, which I have to admit, at first I was sceptical about, but eventually thought it was absolutely brilliant. It reminded me why I absolutely love watching British shows. Don’t get me wrong, I do love my occasional Marvel film now and then, but the British make more realistic movies. Great frames, amazing directing, a bleak outlook, and you know what? Bullets do cause damage. Permanent. That having come out of my system, I have to warn, the series isn’t really for minors, so watch at your own risk.
Other binge-worthy alternatives include the Circle; reality tv with a twist. I’m not really a fan, but this has managed to win me over. Short episodes that do not go on forever, the concept a bit fresher than others, and just the right amount of shade. The US version was good but for me, the Portuguese one has all the kicks. Alertaaaaaa Netflix! I am dying for “The Circle Greece”! Muito obrigado!
Want more? For the gamers out there, go watch Castlevania. Nostalgia and the script gets better as the seasons progress. The aesthetic is plain gorgeous. Killing time in the house… and not only. Simply love the female characters. Forget the obnoxious Sypha, #teamvampire4.
Apart from binge-watching? Well, a bit of books, some gaming, and traditional board games. More on those in the second part of this, but what about you? How do you plan on not dying of boredom?
