Yes, if the trivia team I sat with today advanced, I would have rejoined them at finals August 10. Truth be told ? I’m not really a huge fan of summer trivia tournaments. Especially this year, when I’ve already had two too many “have to” things to do (graduation, wedding).
I also remember the wonderful camping trip we took at Cheboygan State Park in August, 2016 that would not have happened had we advanced to a trivia finals. I also remember a trivia finals in May, 2018 we didn’t advance to, but in exchange, had a lovely cabin trip instead. And we arrived early enough in the day so that we could really enjoy it. Now the blog about that cabin trip is my most viewed blog of all time….
My closest blog followers already know that trivia is… pretty damn important to me. But sometimes there are more important things than trivia. In August, 2018, three weekends of my life were spent in trivial pursuits. And I never got that time back. The resulting mental breakdown and vicious bout of depression weren’t things I’d wish upon my worst enemies. Well, maybe SOME enemies, lol!
What did Ferris Bueller say? If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you might miss something. I don’t want to miss a thing.
I feel like I’m at peace with the weight and pressure being off!
