I’m still desperately behind, but I decided that I needed to take a weekend off because I honestly can’t remember the last time I did nothing for a whole weekend. It’s been months, at least. I might have worked for a bit on Saturday morning, but I mostly relaxed this weekend.
On Saturday afternoon, Dustin and I dove back into Fallout76. We hadn’t played since December and they’ve made a fair number of changes since then. I was somewhat worried the influx of new players thanks to the Battle Royale mode they added would cause more griefing, but everyone we saw in-game was cool. And it was fun to see a lot of low-level players on the server.
The game is still a little on the buggy side, but it was a lot of fun to wander the wasteland. We prefer co-op games where we can be a team and play together. And Fallout76 is the right amount of “massively-multiplayer” for me. There are some events where a big group gets together to defeat a boss, but for the most part, Dustin and I chill out together with no one else around.
And you can build a camp.
I’ve spent soooo much time building my camp. I have a house and a farm, complete with a brahmin (a two-headed cow). I’ve named him Billy and I will be very sad if something comes along and tries to eat him, so I set up some machine gun turrets to protect him. :)
Unfortunately, I play on PC and write on Mac, and I always forget to take a screenshot and send it to myself. One of these days you’ll get to see epic Camp Jessie. :)
On Sunday, we saw the matinee performance of Hamilton. The show is doing a tour in Austin this month and I managed to snag tickets without having to resort to StubHub. In the mad scramble to find a date with availability, I wasn’t exactly sure where we’d end up, but it turns out we had awesome seats! I was right next to the balcony rail with a great view of the stage.
Despite the fact that it was an afternoon show, we decided to dress up a little because we’re so casual that we rarely have a reason to wear our nice clothes. :) But we’re bad at getting pictures, so here’s a selfie. My dress is super cute, I promise! 😉
The show was great! We really enjoyed it and the cast did an amazing job. If you get a chance to see it, I highly recommend it!
What about you? Did you do anything fun or relaxing this weekend?
