and a board gamer, a card gamer and every so often a CCG (well Magic anyway) gamer.
When I decided to close the 1st Chapter I knew that rediscovering my hobby was something that I'd struggle with.
This was more about reminding myself why I enjoyed it than it was about finding people I wanted to enjoy it with but at the same time I had to find those people with whom I'd be comfortable doing that with.
Closing the 1st Chapter was not easy and it was fairly traumatic emotionally and because of that I couldn't bring myself to re-engage with a lot of the people I associated with it's closure.
What I chose to do was to not give up my hobby and so I set myself on a plan to rediscover what I loved about it. To do that I opted to go for a few different approaches - "Something a little bit different", "Go with what you know" and "Try something new".
Each of these are covered in their own posts.
