This is a follow up to my last video where I shared my preparations for our first session of D&D 5th edition.
Please check that out if you haven’t already so this video makes sense…
Thanks again to Quoc at ROQ Films for letting me have fun with his NEX-7… much nicer than my sport cam!
New to Dungeons & Dragons? Hey, me too!
A new version of D&D just released last month and you can read all about it on the D&D website.
I picked up the starter set and am going to try to get my friends hooked on the game this weekend.
Watch the video to see what I’m doing to prepare for the game.
I do talk about the starter set adventure, but it shouldn’t be TOO much of a spoiler.
And stay tuned for a follow up video where I’ll let you know how it all worked out!
Ok, this isn’t a life-hack site but this post is kind of a life-hack tip.
But this IS a site about adding fun to you life.
And let me tell you, shouting arcane words in order to stay organized is more fun than not.
My friend Geoffrey shared this tip with me years ago and it has saved me from turning the car around ever since.
There are a few loose items that I need to take with me nearly every time I leave the house:
- Company badge and key card
It’s pretty difficult to forget the keys since I need them to start the car. But the others have all been forgotten a time or two.
Here’s the deal.
Every morning before I leave for work, I say “wahkifoki.”
I can’t bear to watch presents being opened at kids’ birthday parties anymore.
If you can, then I don’t think we can be friends.
I mean, have you really watched what goes on?
One of the best things I can do as a parent is teach my daughter to hold on to wonder longer than I did.
I spend so much energy telling her to be safe, to behave, to follow the plan, to hurry up, to be on time, to plan ahead, to be clean.
But the best moments in life take place in the margins between these admonitions.
The best and worst of life is NOT clean. Plans fail, sometimes wonderfully so. She should be enjoying life and capturing the wonder all around her… not hurrying to her next appointment.
Instead of being safe, I want her to be aware.
