A few months ago, a friend of mine asked me to join his in-progress D&D campaign. I had always wanted to play but was always afraid it was too steep a learning curve so I never got into it.
After that first night of playing, I have joined his crew every other Thursday night for a few hours of role playing adventure.
It’s the most fun I’ve had in a long time.
I’m playing a Tiefling Paladin in our Curse of Strahd adventure. I’m still learning how to play but every week gets better and better. My goal is to loop another group of friends into a game sometime soon.
My excitement about D&D has boiled over into all aspects of my life. I feel renewed energy about reading, about fantasy, about writing, and being creative. I look forward to those few hours every two weeks more than I ever thought I would before.
This year is going to be about finding more things like D&D. Finding time to do things that make me and my family happy. That’s all that matters in the long run.
