It’s been a long day, and you’re just done. Your brain doesn’t want to think about office politics or papers due or clients’ requests or support questions. It doesn’t want to answer another “Mom!” or “Dad!”.
It just wants to sit.
But you can’t just stare at a wall either… or those intrusive thoughts will make their way back into the brain. Did I file that report on time? How long can I get away without buying the kids’ new shoes? When is picture day? Why do I have to pay my electric bill EVERY month?
And so we sit in our favorite spot, in front of that expectant screen and mouse over to that Minecraft icon. THERE it is. Oh Mojang, I’ve been waiting all day for this. It loads up without a problem, and you hit that Multiplayer option hoping to see a couple people already on. Yes!
Some of your favorite, funny people are in-game building massive castles or the latest Mumbo farm or jumping around aimlessly. There’s no pressure here. None. Your brain settles into focus on your latest project. It doesn’t matter if it gets done. No one will fire you if you mess up.
Your only care is falling into lava or being blown up by a creeper around the corner or experiencing kinetic energy.
I love it. It’s my favorite escape.
