My Kind Of Game
During my childhood days, I remember playing Bingo with my neighbours, all of us were not from rich families, so naturally, we made our Bingo game from cardboards then. We were very cooperative, helping each other, colouring the cards and spent a lot of time doing the numbers and creating our own patterns. The fun part was when the winner had all the numbers called out, he/she would repeatedly shout 'BINGO' a number of times excitedly, so loud that we used to get ticked off by our mothers.
When I started working, my elder sister and her boyfriend, would take me to a club for Bingo game once a week. I can still remember it was a Thursday each week and I was always looking forward to it. We really enjoyed ourselves very much, the chances of winning was high, but besides the snowball prizes, Titanbet Bingo is a nice game to play, the fun of watching and listening to the compere making jokes out of the numbers was very hilarious then.
But with the new millennium days, I am now hooked to the computer, friends called me a "computer addict." I cannot survive without a computer, literally saying. Most of my time I stay connected to the internet whether I am at home or in the office. I love to surf websites and weblogs, writing my journals and lately I am also "hooked" onto online games. I don't pay a lot but I just like to play for fun, just to get back the nostalgic feeling of my younger days.
Somehow I think each of us have our own passion and hobby and how we like to spend time doing what we love to do. I have many friends who are into online games and they play until wee hours in the morning. It was like a day of satisfaction for them and many said that it helps to cure their insomnia. Well, it is definitely not proven but it certainly helps to cheer them up in a way. When I asked them whether they like to get into Bingo jobs, their answer was not surprising.
Coming back to online games, one of my friends now prefers to stay at home and plays games on her iPad. Her kids are all grown up now and away from home and she told me that she is having a time of her life now, relaxing and free from worries and stress. Well, online games might be interesting and as long as we know where our limits are, these games bring around positive effects than negative. As the saying goes, it is time to unwind and have pleasure after a long day of pressure. :)
