I can’t say what I’m definitively “into”. There are a few that stand out clearly. I’m passionate about horses and animals in general. I love music. I enjoy gaming. My specific interests in these areas spans wide and would encompass many many more words than I could possibly sit here and write. Perhaps I will get into some in pieces. I happen to go through cycles of interests, where I will be extremely focused on one band, one type of music, one genre or game, etc. that can last for a few months.
This past week I discovered (re-discovered, somewhere years ago I decided I hated them) Fleetwood Mac. Turns out I already know most of the songs, as most people who have listened to a radio have. I enjoyed reading about the beginnings in blues and the drama in their relationships, and their determination to keep the band together. My boyfriend had the luck to see them in the early 90s. He said that they were musically perfect.
I’ve also been playing more board type games as of late. Settlers of Catan, Solitaire, Pokemon TCGO. I enjoy games with logic and not too much math. iPads, or any tablet, is a great piece of technology for playing these tactile games without the cumbersome moving of pieces and cleaning up boards. Pokemon especially can be difficult with many cards being attached to other cards piling up, and reshuffling of your deck multiple times in a game, or perhaps even a single turn!
I also have a horse, and I’ve been trying to spend as much time as I can with him. He’s 19 years old, and with my back problems I am not able to ride as much as I used to. He also has a condition called COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) which means his respiratory system is somewhat limited. Exercise helps him, as well as some bronchodilators (that are very expensive!), but still, he is not in his prime either and we both have to take it easy. We enjoy walking and taking in nature, but we still jump and gallop around when we can!
