Free time is something that everybody wants. No, to be exact, it is what everybody needs. For a lot of people, free time is the only time they get to spend with their family and friends. For others, it is the time where they can scroll down their social media or watch some TV shows on Netflix
Moreover, some people can become so busy in life they don’t have time for free time, which may seem impossible to some. Furthermore, most people set aside a time where they are free to do whatever it is they enjoy doing.
I, on the other hand, love and enjoy free time the most; I spend my free time doing things that make me happy. Absolutely alone. Because it is definitely called me time for a valid reason. There’s three ways I spend my free time alone which is reading, playing games, and shopping.
To be honest, I do not belong to a religious type of family. But I’m trying my best to improve myself. I recite the Holy Quran with translation in my leisure time which makes me a strong believer of Allah.
I read books and novels, some in Malay language and some in English language so I can improve my vocabulary, which is mostly fiction. I tried to read a non-fiction book, but I don’t think I could make it. I also read comics and manga. I read a lot of manga, for real. Lately, I challenge myself to read poetry. Back in school, I’m not so into poetry because I thought poetry was only for the jiwang type of person. If you are curious what jiwang means, please read it here. But now I read it and realized how much good poetry is, like Pillow Thoughts, Yesterday I Was The Moon, and I See You Like A Flower.
Next, playing games. I loved playing games from when I was a kid till now. More importantly, those classic games that can bring back my childhood memories. Compared to modern games, like video games or streaming games which can be quite bad for you when you are addicted to it and also stressful, those old favorite games are not so addictive but still enjoyable.
Gladly, I came across the website Plays.org, a site which contains a lot of good games I can play from my browser. There’s also got the classic games with a new design but still hold those nostalgic memories, like Tetra Blocks, a Tetris-inspired game. If you ask me what the difference between Tetra and Tetris is, there’s only one thing that makes it different, Tetra is more colourful compared to Tetris and I love the colorful ones even more.
There’s also Pac-Rat, your oldie Pac-Man but in the new version. The Yellow Pac-Man which is the new version, Pac-Rat of course there are rat and cheese. When I’m playing this, I can’t control myself and was like, ‘oh my god oh my god I’m dead meat I’m dead meat’, and then realized oh I’m still like this, nothing changes hahahaha. So, I’m so thankful for Play.org for creating this super fun stuff for me and others.
Of course there’s more fun games you can enjoy and play with yourself or maybe with your kids. Like Break the Worm, which there’s Adventure Time characters in it, they are cute.
Before the whole pandemic happened, I loved going to fill my free time by shopping. From bookstores, drugstores and clothes stores, from one to another one, I love doing this so much. To be honest, I can spend an hour or maybe more in a bookstore or drugstore without realizing it.
Sometimes, I was like, okay let’s just eye on those things in the store or just purchase one or two stuff only, but the rest is history. I got four and more things, especially when it was time to buy one free one. I lost control during my leisure time when it comes to shopping. More importantly, it felt good after that.
